FIAT Ecobasic (2000–)

Last updated 4 March 2016

Brilliantly lightweight basic design from Fiat.
Too light for crash tests, so never happened.


Car of the future that never happened. True successor to the original 2CV. Plastic panels on a space frame. 1.2 litre 61bhp direct injected diesel engine and 5-speed Selaspeed autoclutched gearbox giving up to 94mpg, 100mph and 0-60mph in 13 seconds. Weighs less than 750 kilos; emits just 80 g/km CO2. Could have sold for around £4,000.
