Fiat Ecos -

The Fiat Ecos was an electric concept car built by Pininfarina in 1978.

The Ecos was used for a study for an environmentally-friendly electric city car. This was carried out in co-operation with the Fiat Research Centre. The ecological sensibility would become only later of wide interest.

The car was only a wooden model. Presented at the Turin Motorshow 1978. The wheelbase was 2200mm. It was planned to be powered by a 26kW electric motor driving the front wheels. Twelve 6V batteries, each weighing 30kg, were to be installed.
