July 4, 2023

Fiat Topolino, a ‘moped’

Officially, of course, the Fiat Topolino is a “moped,” but there is no question of “humming. In fact, it is an all-electric two-seater, exactly like the Opel and Citroën. Because the vehicle reaches only 45 mph, people as young as 16 are allowed to drive the Topolino. According to Fiat, the Topolino is a cheerful and cool new electric car for everyone. Well, car. Rather, call it a “city car,” or light electric vehicle.


“The Topolino is a tribute to Fiat’s history and the brand’s ability to innovate in a cool and congenial way. Moreover, the Topolino is the ideal mobility solution for in town and short distances. Thanks to its electric powertrain, environmental zones are no longer any obstacle,” the manufacturer said in a statement.

Little mouse

The Fiat Topolino is the 500’s little sister. It takes its name and design from the original 500 of yore, affectionately called “Topolino” for its small size. Topolino literally means “little mouse. Topolino is also the Italian name of Mickey Mouse. The Fiat Topolino has design features of the classic Fiat 500. The design excels at simplicity.

Available in one color: Verde Vita

The design of this cheerful electric Italian can be further personalized thanks to various accessories. Consider a small shower, should you drive a Topolino toward the beach. The lineup consists of closed and open versions. Both variants are available in one color: Verde Vita. They also have one wheel design and one composition for the interior. In the open version, the model has no doors, but strings. Hearty fun, of course, but in the rain or in winter it can be quite cold.
