Fiat has used the Sao Paulo motor show to unveil this innovative Mio concept, a car created online by more than 17,000 people.
Measuring in at a whisker under 2.5m in length, the mini Mio is shorter than a Smart ForTwo and features advanced interior technology features including mobile phone integration and touch-screen controls.
Minimalism is the key here, with its uncluttered and futuristic appearance, including camouflaged headlights, large glass roof, and covered wheels for added efficiency.
According to Fiat, the Mio evolved as part of an on-going interactive collaborative process through its website.
More than 17,000 people were registered as official collaborators; broad overall themes for the concept car were future urban mobility and sustainability.
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.”
The Mio was “designed for a world where the driver can be simply a passenger and can have the vehicle controlled through intelligent means.” according to Fiat.
