Fiat Cinquecento Elettra
The Fiat Cinquecento was a city car that was launched by Fiat in late 1991 to replace the Fiat 126. It was the first Fiat model to be solely manufactured in the FSM plant in Tychy, Poland. The production of the Cinquecento ended in 1998 when it was replaced by the Seicento.
It featured a small, angular 3-door hatchback body with a favorable drag coefficient of 0.33. It had some advanced features compared to previous Fiat city cars including independent suspension in the front and rear, front disc brakes, side impact bars, crumple zones incorporated in the design, and corrosion-resistant galvanized body panels. The Cinquecento was equipped with steering by rack and pinion, and optional features such as central locking, power windows, sunroof, and air conditioning.
Unlike the rear-wheel drive 126, the Cinquecento was a front-wheel drive car. At launch, it was powered by two engines, the 704 cc two-cylinder ohv unit that delivered 30 bhp DIN (22 kW), and the 903/899 cc four-cylinder ohv with fuel injection that produced 40 bhp DIN (29 kW). In 1995, the Cinquecento Sporting variant was released with the 1.1 L ohc FIRE 54 hp (40 kW) ECE engine, suspension drop, 13 inch alloy wheels, colour coded bumpers and mirrors, and a tachometer dial. It also had a rally trophy and kit-car version.
