To be marketed as both the BMW Isetta and FIAT Topolino respectively, the newly developed car will not simply be re-badged one way or the other, but instead will share a common platform - in much the same way Mazda and Ford have done with their Mazda2 and Fiesta models.

After the September debut, the cars will be scheduled for sale in 2011 with the four-seat BMW variant to be sold as an EV (Electric Vehicle) using the same setup as featured in the upcoming MINI E.


It is beleived at this point the FIAT version will opt for a traditional petrol engine.
