Fiat Topolino EV is back and 'cuter' than ever
Fiat has unveiled the Topolino EV, a low-slung, quadricycle with a convertible top and rope doors. The all-electric Fiat Topolino will increase urban electric mobility and bring the optimism of its namesake to an approachable, all-electric version that embodies the coolness of the Fiat 500.
Fiat Topolino: History
The first 500, dubbed the Topolino, was produced between 1936 and 1955. The contribution of the first-generation model to the project ends there. Instead, designers borrowed influence from the second-generation 500 to distinguish the current Topolino from the Citroen-branded vehicle.
Fiat Topolino: Details
The new Fiat Topolino is based on the Citroën Ami and is Fiat's second EV, after the 500e. The Ami is powered by a 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that feeds an 8PS electric motor. It has a range of 74 km and a top speed of 45 kmph that is electronically restricted.
Topolino means "little mouse" in Italian and that's quite literally what this car looks like. The Topolino sports a brown cloth retractable top, white leather seats, and open sides like the vintage beach-ready 500 Jolly. For some context, the Citroen Ami has a length of 95 inches, a width of 55 inches, and a height of 60 inches.
Fiat has yet to share photographs of the back end, and the inside is being kept under wraps for the time being. However, the seats resemble those of the Ami, and we anticipate that most of the interior alterations will be trim-related.
Fiat Topolino: Expected launch
The Topolino is aimed at a diverse audience, including younger customers, families, and city dwellers, and is in line with Fiat's purpose of delivering urban sustainable mobility solutions that are affordable to everyone.
Fiat hasn't given many details about this new EV and has also only released a single image but we are pretty sure that this new tiny machine will not make to the Indian shores. The Fiat Topolino, which is built in Morocco, will be on sale in certain markets in the coming months.
