According to the latest information circulating in the industry, Fiat intends to revive the legendary name Topolino with a mini all-electric vehicle. It will not be built from scratch, but will be based on the zero-emission model Citroen Ami, which is marketed in Europe.
In fact, the first prototype of the future Fiat mini electric model has already been presented to dealers at a private event. One of the dealers who saw the vehicle said it was slightly more refined than the original Citroen version. informs Motor1quoting Autonews.
Two years ago, Citroen launched the electric quad, dubbed the Ami. It is classified in many European countries as a quadricycle due to its low power and very small size. The car can be driven from 14 to 16 years old, which makes it ideal for urban and suburban areas.
With a length of 2.41 meters, the Citroen Ami offers enough space for two adults. It is powered by a small electric motor of only 8 hp, and the declared maximum speed is 45 km / h. The French vehicle uses a 5.5 kWh battery, which offers a WLTP certified range of 75 kilometers. The future Topolino is expected to receive the same technical package.
In 2021, Ami was sold in over 9,000 units globally. Stellantis Group officials plan to produce 15,000 copies this year. Like Ami, Topolino is expected to be sold in both the passenger and freight versions. There could also be a convertible version equipped with a soft-top.
In the middle of last year, Opel unveiled an absolutely identical model to Ami, called the Rocks. Both quadricycles are produced at the Stellantis factory in the Moroccan city of Kenitra.
