Engine 1.1 litre 4 cyl / 2x electric motors

The Pininfarina Eta Beta was a concept which represented a fresh approach to designing a fuel efficient, practical and versatile city car.

The Eta Beta featured an aluminium space frame, and also aluminium doors, bonnet and tailgate. The rest of the body panels were plastic. The use of lightweight materials throughout helped keep the weight to a minimum, which in turn further improved fuel economy.

Powering the Pininfarina Eta Beta was a hybrid drivetrain which consisted of a 61 horsepower 1.1 litre 4-cylinder engine borrowed from the Fiat Cinquecento and two 12.5 kW in wheel electric motors. Thanks to this setup the Eta Beta was in fact four wheel drive. The front wheels were powered by the internal combustion engine, while the electric motors drove the rear wheels.
