Fiat has recently launched a new electric vehicle that is unlike any other in its lineup. The Fiat Topolino is a tiny electric quadricycle that can be driven by anyone over 16 years old without the need for a driver’s license. The Topolino, which means "little mouse" in Italian, is a modern reinterpretation of the original Fiat 500 that was produced from 1936 to 1955 and was nicknamed Topolino by the public.
A Retro Style with a Modern Twist
The new Fiat Topolino is based on the Citroen Ami, a similar electric quadricycle that was introduced in 2020. However, Fiat has given the Topolino a distinctive retro style that evokes the charm and simplicity of the classic Fiat 500. The Topolino features round headlights, a silver bumper, and a logo that resembles the one used by Fiat in the 1950s. The Topolino also has a canvas roof that can be rolled back to enjoy the open air, and ropes instead of doors for a minimalist and fun look.
The Fiat Topolino electric quadricycle is available in two versions: the Urban and the Beach. The Urban version is more practical and comfortable, with padded seats, air conditioning, power windows, and a digital display. The Beach version is more adventurous and playful, with leather seats, no windows, no air conditioning, and no display. Both versions have the same price of $10,770 (9,890 euros) in Italy.
An Affordable and Sustainable Mobility Solution
The Fiat Topolino is designed to be an affordable and sustainable mobility solution for urban dwellers, especially young people and families. The quadricycle has a range of 47 miles and a top speed of 28 mph, making it ideal for short trips around the city. The Topolino can be charged in just three hours using a standard household outlet and has a low maintenance cost. The quadricycle also has a spacious interior that can accommodate two passengers and some luggage.
The Fiat Topolino is not only a vehicle but also a lifestyle accessory that can be customized according to the preferences and needs of each customer. Fiat offers various options and accessories for the Topolino, such as different colors, stickers, seat covers, mats, and luggage racks. The quadricycle can also be connected to a smartphone app that provides information on battery status, driving statistics, navigation, and entertainment.
A Symbol of Freedom and Joy
The Fiat Topolino is not just a car but a symbol of freedom and joy. It is a tribute to the history and heritage of Fiat, as well as a vision for the future of urban mobility. It is a vehicle that brings back the joy of driving without compromising on sustainability and affordability. It is a vehicle that makes you smile.
Fiat has opened the orders for the new Topolino in Italy. Customers can order their quadricycle online through the official website or through selected dealerships. Fiat also offers a home delivery service in just a few clicks, with no additional cost. The delivery time is estimated to be between two and four weeks.
The Fiat Topolino is expected to be launched in other European countries soon and in some markets outside Europe where quadricycles are allowed. Fiat hopes that the Topolino will appeal to a wide audience of customers who are looking for an alternative and eco-friendly way of moving around the city while having fun and expressing their personality.
