The Fiat Mio - which started out life named the FCC III concept - is the product of a worldwide design collaboration hosted by Fiat.

From August 2009 to October 2010, more than two million people, from 160 countries, visited the company's dedicated Fiat Mio website. 17 thousand registered with the site, and more than 10 thousand ideas were posted in an effort to design a new compact car for Latin America.

The Fiat Mio was developed on an open platform which uses Creative Commons licenses, and because of the worldwide collaborative design effort, the concept is more flexible with respect to copyright rights. In essence, no one company or person has total ownership of the design.

After Fiat compiled the suggestions of the visitors to their Mio website, and got a feel for what the majority wanted, the actual styling and design work began.

According to the participants, the car should be an urban vehicle, compact and economical. In terms of sustainability, it should use clean energy and ecological materials. In dealing with information, it should have, at least, mobile phone integration, a media player, GPS and other gadgets available through its own operating system. To complement this array of technology, the designers also chose to equip the Fiat Mio with a touch screen display, a head-up display (HUD) and self-diagnosis system.

The overall design of the Fiat Mio concept is one which looks sleek and futuristic, while at the same time retaining the practical single-volume box shape which is most efficient in terms of interior space. The headlights, when not in use, are camouflaged within the gloss black panel at the front of the vehicle. This has the effect of giving the Mio a very clean and uncluttered appearance when viewed from the front.

The covered wheels of the Fiat Mio are designed to help improve the aerodynamics, which in turn would increase the vehicles efficiency.

The interior of the Fiat Mio concept has space for two people. Inspired by stylish lounge seating, it is designed to offer plenty of light thanks to the large glass windows and roof. All the control interfaces and gadgets are ergonomically placed and easily accessible. Everything about the vehicle was designed for a world where the driver can be simply a passenger and the vehicle can be driven autonomously if desired.

The dimensions of the Fiat Mio concept are:
2,500 mm (98 inches) long
1,560 mm (61.4 inches) wide
1,530 mm (60 inches) high
