Fiat 500

The electric version of the new Fiat 500 is set to premiere in the next couple days. It really cool to see a company updating an already cool reinvention of a classic. While some would argue the original Fiat 500 was released in 1936, the iconic box of a car that comes to most peoples minds when the 500 is mentioned was released in 1957. It would change what people thought a small card could be, and inspire the release of other other cars such as the mini cooper. The original was a mere 3 meters long and only had 13 horsepower but still proved to be a useful and practical vehicle. The car would undergo several updates though its lifetime, with production continuing all the way until 1975. Following in the steps of the Mini, the car would be reintroduced in 2007, and once again prove to be a practical and reliable car at an amazing price.
