Fiat’s upcoming mini-electric vehicle, named ‘Topolino,’ has created a lot of excitement online due to its unconventional features. Designed to compete with models like the Chery QQ EV, Wuling Mini EV, and Citroen Ami, the Topolino will initially be available exclusively in Italy, priced at $10,739 (approximately Rs. 2.97 million).
The EV will come with a 5.5 kWh battery, providing a range of 75 kilometers and a charging time of four hours. Stellantis, the parent company of Fiat, has mentioned a unique feature called the “little shower,” which is intended for sunny days spent on the Italian coast.
In addition to its uniqueness, the vehicle will include other peculiar elements such as USB fans, Bluetooth speakers, warm water bottles, and beach towel seat covers. Stellantis has also revealed that the Topolino will be offered in two styles: a closed version and an open version with rope-like doors. Interestingly, the vehicle will have only one color, interior, and wheel design option.
With a top speed limited to 45 km/h, Fiat is marketing the Topolino as a ‘quadricycle,’ likely due to its limited performance capabilities. Due to its distinctive characteristics, the Fiat Topolino is expected to primarily attract a niche market of novelty product enthusiasts, even within Italy.
