new fiat topolino electric car with rollable sunroof + open doors can be driven by 14 year olds

New Fiat topolino for coast cruising and city driving 

 

The new Fiat Topolino Dolcevita puts a joyful spin on electric minicars by adding a rollable fabric sunroof and open-air doors to the car design. It is one of the two versions that Fiat will release for the new Topolino, and the second one, dubbed ‘closed’ or simply Fiat Topolino, gets the usual doors and car roof for city cruising. Fans of Riviera coasting can savor the scenic views and summery breeze as they drive in Fiat Topolino Dolcevita with the open setting it offers.

 

If they want, they can also crawl inside a modified Fiat Panda that is cut in half yet still functions like hooded bump car. Even a 14-year-old – the minimum age to drive the electric car yet depending on the local regulations – can drive the quaint and cozy vehicle. A noticeable feature in the Dolcevita variant is its door sills and rope that lends the aura of the movie star stepping out of a luxurious hotel lounge.

 

Personalization is also at the heart of the new Fiat Topolino. The closed version can be customized with wooden effect stickers on the doors, while in the open version, the stickers with stripes as a summer tent can be added to the roof. Both versions are equipped with the rear carriage so the passengers can store their luggage at the back of the car; the Dolcevita Box, which is a band of fabric inside to store personal items in; and vintage chrome effect mirrors to fully embody la dolce vita.

Electric car for small seaside villages and busy city centers

 

With the new Fiat Topolino, the brand makes a step towards complete electrification. Drawn from its light Verde Vita palette and modest size, the electric car can cater to younger drivers who aim to find a driving-friendly transport solution. The car can also easily navigate the narrow roads, making it ideal for both small seaside villages and the chaotic city center.

 

The Fiat Topolino is the 500’s little sister, taking its name and design from the original 500, affectionately called ‘Topolino’ – which translates to ‘pup’ or a baby mouse – because of its small size. Optional accessories are also offered for the electric car users such as a spacious rack bag, a USB fan, a Bluetooth speaker, a thermal water bottle for both hot and cold drinks, and two seat covers that convert into comfortable and soft beach towels when required. 

 

While the new Fiat Topolino has two versions, both are consistent in their characteristics: one color, called Verde Vita, one wheel design, and one aesthetic approach for the interior. They can cruise at a top speed of 45 km/h and feature electric capability due to a 5,4 kWh battery that offers up to 75km of range and less than four-hour time for a full charge. They also have a  total of 63 liters of interior storage space, including the one between the driver and passenger where one suitcase can be placed.
