MA-DE Studio Taps Fiat’s Iconic 126 For The All-Electric ‘Vision’ Concept

The onslaught of electrified automotive icons is far from over; although, we’ve had a tough time guessing which company (and model) will be the next to take on the sustainable transition. The most recent in a long line of vintage-inspired models to make their debut in 2020 is none other than the Fiat 126 Vision — an homage to the original model from 1972.

At over 4.7 million units produced, the 126 was one of Fiat’s most successful platforms. Despite this, it was removed from production lines in 2000 to make room for the brand’s sportier models. Now, 20 years later, MA-DE Studio designer Andrea Della Vecchia is showing us what it might look like if the Italian automaker returns to its roots for an electrified revision. Instead of designing the model from the ground up, MA-DE has remained relatively true to the vehicle’s original layout. A tapered roof, square silhouette, and subdued front-end pay homage to the retro 126, while simplistic badging and vintage mirrors accent the designer’s removal of the car’s original B pillar. Head to MA-DE Studio’s website for a closer look at the electrified 126 Vision.
