FCA to Bring "Blank Canvass" Concept Centoventi to CES
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will be showcasing the Fiat Concept Centoventi to North American soil at this year's CES slated January 7-10 in Las Vegas.
First introduced at last year’s Geneva International Motor Show, the Fiat Concept is set to represent the perfect expression of the FIAT brand’s vision of electric mass mobility for the future.
The Centoventi, which means “120” in Italian, is a concept that was introduced in celebration of the brand’s storied 120-year history.
Considered as a "blank canvass" waiting for every customer to paint its preferences to it, FCA said that the FIAT Centoventi is a revolutionary concept addresses electric mobility with basic, customizable solutions.
Produced in just one color, the vehicle may be “painted” by the customer using the “4U” program and the exterior may be personalized with a choice of four roof options, four bumpers, four wheel covers and four external wrappings.
Regarding the interior, from the instrument cluster to storage compartments and from seats to child-restraint systems, the interchangeable interior accessories may be installed in plug-and-play mode by the customer on the vehicle’s patented dashboard.
With its innovative battery modular architecture, even the concept vehicle’s range may be customized. The range may be varied to meet specific needs from 60 miles to 300 miles, which makes it perfect for urban commuting and for a weekend getaway by the sea or in the mountains.
One of the concept car’s strong points is that owners no longer have to wait for new special editions or facelifts; they may change their cars on any day. In addition, the Fiat Concept Centoventi sets another automotive benchmark as it becomes a social media device with its modern display installed in its tailgate.
The car has been designed and engineered with sharing and new forms of urban mobility in mind. The cockpit is equipped with a small screen facing the windshield outward, it can be used to communicate messages, such as busy, free, parking paid, etc. In addition, a second large tailgate display enables Fiat Concept Centoventi to supersede the concept of connectivity to become a social media device on which messages may be shared with the outdoor world.
When the vehicle is in motion, the car will only show the FIAT logo, but once it stops, the driver can switch to “messenger” mode and create a new message.
