If you think the Fiat 500 is too big for your needs, you might be interested in the new Fiat Topolino, a tiny electric quadricycle that can be driven by anyone over 14 years old without a license. The Topolino, which means "little mouse" in Italian, is a modern reinterpretation of the iconic Fiat 500 that debuted in 1936 and was nicknamed Topolino by the public. The new Fiat Topolino is a small, cute, and eco-friendly vehicle that offers a fun, easy, and affordable way to move around the city, with a range of 47 miles and a starting price of $10,200.
The Fiat Topolino is based on the Citroen Ami, another electric quadricycle that belongs to the same parent company, Stellantis. However, Fiat has given the Topolino a distinctive Italian flair with retro-inspired styling cues, such as round headlights, a silver bumper, and a canvas roof. The Topolino also features ropes instead of doors, which can be removed for an open-air driving experience. The interior is minimalist and functional, with two seats, a digital display, and a USB port. The driver can use their smartphone as an infotainment system, thanks to a dedicated app that connects to the vehicle's onboard computer.
Fiat claims that the Topolino is not just a car but a "socially active" mobility solution that promotes electric mobility in cities and caters to a wide audience, including young people, families, and city lovers. The company also offers various customization options for the Topolino, such as different colors, stickers, accessories, and even an external rack for a suitcase. Fiat says that the Topolino is "the perfect companion for those who want to enjoy life with simplicity and style."
