Fiat has used online input from over 17,000 people to create the Mio concept car, revealed at the Sao Paulo Auto Show.
The car is a tiny city runabout with a length just under 2.5m. That’s smaller than a Smart Fortwo. It has a minimalistic design approach to the exterior, with camouflaged headlamps and a large glass roof. It also looks very futuristic, and has covered wheels for added efficiency.
The interior features advanced technology such as mobile phone integration and a touchscreen. Fiat says the car is “designed for a world where the driver can be simply a passenger and can have the vehicle controlled through intelligent means.”
The Mio was created using input from 17,000 contributors on a website. Fiat’s design boss, Peter Fassbender, said: “A good designer tries to realise the wishes of everyone, and with this concept car we were truly working on everybody’s behalf.”
