FIAT 126 Vision, An All-Electric Concept

View all 9 Photos

An electrifying twist on the popular Fiat 126 from 1972.

While most of the world was caught in quarantine this year and many design projects were put on hold, some architects and designers found new ways to channel their creativity. Co-founder of Italian design studio Ma-De Studio Andrea Della Vecchia is one of them. Passionate about cars as well as inspired by Tony Gaskins’ quote “If you don’t build your dream someone else will hire you to help build theirs,” the designer embarked on a special project. This all-electric FIAT 126 VISION concept is Andrea Della Vecchia’s first car design project. It re-interprets the hugely popular Fiat 126 model, originally introduced by Fiat at the Turin Auto Show in October 1972.

Launched as a replacement for the Fiat 500, the four passenger car had a rear engine. Eventually, it became one of the automotive brand’s most successful models, reaching a total production of almost 5 million units. Here, the classic car transforms into an all-electric vehicle. The concept re-imagines the Fiat 126 as a green car, but keeps every detail that made the model so beloved intact. Fans will recognize the same silhouette as well as some subtle changes that strengthen the car’s character.

Slightly curved and rounded forms give a more elegant touch to the classic body design. This electric 4-seater concept boasts a tapered roof toward the rear and squared headlights along with the distinctive contoured accent that travels around the body. Refreshingly modern yet still the same, this electric Fiat 126 looks ready to take on a road trip. Images courtesy of Ma-De Studio.
