Fiat presented at the 2015 LA Auto Show a special edition of the 500e – “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Stormtrooper.

The Black & white 500e was created by Garage Italia Customs and is used to promote the movie.

It’s a neat concept and that promotes both the movie and EVs.

“As part of the FCA US LLC support of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” opening December 18, the FIAT brand will display a custom-painted Fiat 500e stormtrooper. Lucasfilm recently announced that it is collaborating with FCA US, in addition to six other global brands, for the launch of an expansive, historic promotional campaign in support of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The exterior livery of the Fiat 500e stormtrooper is inspired by the armor of the First Order Legion, with a two-tone black and white custom painting of the car body. The windshield and the side windows are wrapped to bring out the immediately recognizable visor and helmet of the First Order stormtrooper. Inside, everything is in black and white, too, with total custom front and rear seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara®. The dashboard is painted in white and it is enriched by the “Star Wars” logo on it. All the details are painted in white/black lacquer, and a First Order insignia can be found on the two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel. Much like the stormtrooper armor itself, the Fiat 500e brings together modern technology and functionality, but with an added classic Italian design, making it the perfect vehicle to take on the galaxy in style. The Fiat 500e stormtrooper was created by Garage Italia Customs.

Recently, in honor of “Force Friday” (September 4), Mattel’s Hot Wheels offered Uber riders in New York City the once-in-a-lifetime chance to catch a free ride in a Dodge Charger uniquely modeled after a “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” stormtrooper.”

    For a compliance car that Sergio promised “not sell a single car more than necessary”, they sure advertise a lot. How many EV do they need to sell to meet compliance? SparkEV is less than half Fiat500e sales.

    1. I agree, and the Spark is in my opinion much more fun to drive; it’s certainly faster.

      The looks of Fiat probably are better accepted than the Spark, but hey, I drive an i3 so who am I to judge 😉

        “I agree, and the Spark is in my opinion much more fun to drive; it’s certainly faster.”

        *rolls eyes*

        In my opinion the spark and i3 are ugly as sin

        1. DonC says:

          “Fun to drive” and “ugly” are not mutually exclusive concepts. LOL No doubt the 500e is cute, though the look is getting a bit long in the tooth.

        2. Raymondjram says:

          If “sin” was ugly, why do people sin every day? Because they love it!

  2. ffbj says:

    It looks cool!
    Say what you will but the Italians really know how to design a car.

  3. Fiat 500e is a great little EV. Very economical to lease and operate.

    Needs DC Quick Charge though.

  4. storky says:

    fail.

  5. DonC says:

    It’s fun and cool but I don’t think I’d want to drive it. The concept would get old pretty fast I’d think.

    1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      Yup. I saw “Star Wars” in its original run at the cinemas, and I have a Master Replica lightsaber on my shelf… but I wouldn’t want to drive a car that advertises the movie. That would get old pretty fast.

  6. Vexar says:

    Shrug. Looks like a cow print.

  7. Get Real says:

    I’m surprised sven and the other serial Tesla/Musk haters aren’t posting here claiming that this will be the downfall of Tesla!

  8. Get Real says:

    Afterall, they are constantly grasping at all kinds of straws from hydrogen-hype to non-existent Audis and other would-be competitors.

  9. Airton Azevedo says:

    Yuck!, I think the panda i3 would make the perfect Stormtrooper mobile.

  10. Josh says:

    Fiat went all out on that.

    I am surprised that they didn’t choose R2D2 for the theme, since he was propelled by electricity. A self driving, R2D2 themed, 500e would certainly gathered some big attention.
