Fiat has unveiled the Fiat Topolino based on the Citroen Ami and Citroen Ami Cargo.
The Topolino is an all-electric quadricycle that aims to enhance urban electric mobility while embodying the spirit of its namesake and iconic Fiat 500.
Designed to bring a fresh sense of la dolce vita to city streets, the Topolino caters to a wide range of customers, including younger drivers, families, and urban enthusiasts. Fiat's objective is to offer accessible and sustainable mobility solutions for everyone.
The chosen name, Topolino, holds a significant historical value and immediately evokes memories of the first Fiat 500.
The original Topolino, produced by Fiat between 1936 and 1955, revolutionised the automotive industry and became an icon in its own right.
Unlike the Citroen Ami, there are no plans for the Fiat Topolino to be made available in right hand drive. There are also no indications that there will be a commercial vehicle version of the electric van. Originally launched as a Citroen product, the Ami is available as the Citroen Ami Cargo, a compact van with a miniature payload and load volume.
The Citroen Ami Cargo has 400-litres of storage the equivalent of 0.4 cubic metres. It also gets a payload of 140kg. That's because it uses the allowance you’d have for a passenger.
The Fiat Topolino will only be available as a passenger version, with just two seats. The car has a roll top roof and rope doors. It is very similar in design to the limited edition Citroen Ami Buggy. The retractable roof is made in brown cloth, but there's also cream leather upholstery.
Just like the Citroen Ami, the Topolino is limited to a top speed of 28mph and has a range of 46 miles.
