Do you have 18.750 euros? A Fiat Panda power can be yours, with manual switching!

The Fiat Panda has been a utility very nice and practical since its release. Its first generation was produced for more than a decade, and even lived for something more reincarnated in the SEAT Marbella. There was an electric version of the first Fiat Panda, fairly little known. It was called Fiat Panda Elettra, and was somewhat forgotten because of their very low production. All in all, it was an electric with surprises and an autonomy comparable to that of a Nissan Leaf today. If you have 18.750€, one of these cute classic electric could be yours.

The copy that is for sale is located in the Netherlands and has only 10,000 km on the odometer.

Fiat made the Panda Elettra during just 8 years, at the end of its life cycle: between 1990 and 1998. The greatest peculiarity of this power was that was equipped with a manual gearbox. Practically all electric cars have a single relationship – and invest their operation to go into reverse – and the reason that this Panda had a manual gearbox it was just the use of the gearbox for a Panda of an internal combustion engine. In terms of its electric motor, just develops 18 HP and 35 Nm of torque.

Is a power that is sufficient to allow a maximum speed of 50 km/h. Why so slow? Because its gigantic battery of lead acid, I weighed a whopping 700 pounds, occupying rear seats and trunk, bringing the total weight of the car to 1,150 pounds. The sources consulted differ in their autonomy, which ranges between 100 km and 200 km, although loading was a process of several hours connected to the mains. A power of the old school of scarce benefits, but without doubt historical attraction.
