1993 Fiat Downtown City Car

This 1993, Fiat City car concept was developed way before the smart car ICE, or EV. It featured composite body panels.
3 passenger layout. Driver position centered to the front of vehicle. Rear wheel drive, electric motor. I found this vehicle on You Tube. It’s ashamed, Fiat never bought it to the market.

Mercedes was working on a city car concept as early as 1972. The Mercedes City Car (MCC) concept was under development in 1990.

You can go back to 1982 for this Mercedes prototype, called the NAFA....

The Fiat Downtown had a few nice design stylings clues. It was a early EV.
