MARINA BAY, Singapore – Fiat’s ”revolutionary” Concept Centoventi – the brand’s vision for “democratic” electric mobility of the future – has won a 2019 Red Dot Award in the “Design Concept” category.
The presentation was at Marina Bay, Singapore, to celebrate the car’s design, one of the three “Red Dot Design” prize categories judged by a ”jury” of 21 design professionals and academics.
Olivier François (pictured), Fiat Global’s president, told The Corner in a media release: ”I’m extremely proud. This prize reflects the exceptional innovation and significance of the Concept Centoventi with implications reaching far beyond the automotive world.
”It’s another gift to mark Fiat’s 120th anniversary.”
The Concept Centoventi is said to have approached electric mobility with an innovative business model – yet one ”eminently customisable”. Interchangeable interior accessories can “plug and play” in or on the instrument cluster and storage compartments; seats to child restraint systems.
The huge bumpers can be customised and various types of roof are available. The cars can be “dressed” to reflect changing seasons – or a buyer’s personality. The Centoventi’s driving range is modular, too: various batteries are available for 100km or up to 500km.
