MA-DE studio envisions an all-electric version of the fiat 126

international design studio, MA-DE, has brought fiat‘s classic 126 model into the 21st century with this all-electric concept. dubbed the ‘fiat 126 vision’, this reinterpretation preserves the unmistakable shape of the original car but gives it a smooth, rounded update.

the fiat 126 was first unveiled in 1972 at the turin auto show as a replacement for the fiat 500. the vehicle was a four-passenger, rear-engined city car. in production until 2000, it was one of fiat‘s most successful models with almost 4.7 million units being produced.

for this new concept, envisioned by andrea della vecchia of MA-DE studio, the 126 doesn’t lose any of it’s identity. the designer has instead retained the contours of the car and strengthened some unmistakable stylistic elements, such as the roof tapered at the rear and the squared headlights dominated by the character line that surrounds the vehicle.

  • It’s so nice to look at. It looks modern and keeps the look of the old one at the same time. Nicely done, would like to see it on the roads sometime.

  • I would be awesome if this could be real 🙂

    A friend of me told there are kits available to transform the 126 to an electric car, so if you have one standing around (like people do…) you can already sort of make this :D.

  • It looks very neat, lines and shapes are well adapted for a new car in this day and age. Would like to see more of the interior design!

  • Fiat should so do this! They’re created so many iconic designs that not only have stood the test of time but would lend themselves to EVs. I reckon Fiat’s 127 would also be a great one to breathe life into again. Look at even Honda’s EV, that has the Fiat 850 front on it!
