Castagna Electrifies the Fiat 500

In the fifties, beach goers could jet around in the Fiat 500 Jolly meant to be a zippy golf cart replacement when running to the yacht or out to the course. The hot Italian car design firm known for bringing the past into the present, Castagna, is building the Tender Two, a modern-day take on the Fiat 500 without the doors and back seat but keeping the zippy style and adding a few special features.

The Tender Two adds raised siding, teak wood, updated upholstery, and of course, a zero-emission electric engine, which gets up to  81 mph and a range of 140 km or 87 miles after a four hour charge of the battery. Now, you just have to figure out how to get it from Italy to your driveway in time for summer.
