Fiat’s 500 Goes Atomik Autos 2010

Atomik Cars wants to make an electric Abarth 500, which is a good idea from the start. Claimed to have “supercar performance in a city car’s size”, Atomik’s 500 features a bunch of fancy tech under its carbon fiber skin: “high performance LiFePO4 batteries”, brushless synchronous motors, two new transmissions (resulting in permanent AWD), a ceramic heater, and a carbon/Nomex rear chassis (by the way, Nomex is what Batman’s suit is made out of).Power at the front comes in at 80 kW and a very electric 840 Nm (619 lb-ft), while the rear engine makes the same power and a silly 1,710 Nm (1,261 lb-ft). Combined, that’s good for 160 kW (215 hp) and an unadjusted 2,550 Nm (1,880 lb-ft) split 33/67 front to rear.

Atomik says the electrified 500 should hit 100 km/h in under 5 seconds with a top speed of around 200 km/h (electric cutoff is at 180 km/h), while providing a range of 200 km (124 miles).
