Milan-based Garage Italia Customs has taken a vintage Fiat 500 and upgraded
it for the present day, re-engineering it with a contemporary electric
drivetrain in place of a combustion engine.

The refurbished four-seater is part of Garage Italia’s concept-to-product
E-Icon project, which electrifies classic cars. From the exterior, the Fiat
Nuova 500 remains largely as it was during its 1957-1975 production period,
however a few telling details indicate that this is not your typical Fiat.

A few of the cutesier details include the five-inch dashboard display which
shows a custom graphic interface, the metal Fiat badge on the front that
opens to reveal the charging port, and of course the the gear lever with two
symbols on the top presumably to indicate the car’s two gears: a tortoise
and a hare.

This Fiat 500 is the first project in the E-Icon project. To learn more
