The exterior of this Fiat 500e was designed after the uniform of a stormtrooper, which is also entirely black and white. The windshield and side windows even wrap to provide the look of the stormtrooper’s helmet and visor.

The interior of this custom Fiat is also black and white with a Star Wars logo featured on the dashboard. In addition, the seats inside this 500e are custom and have been upholstered in leather and Alcantara®.

The work completed on this customized Fiat 500e was done by Garage Italia Customs.

The 2016 Fiat 500e is powered by a 83-kilowatt electric motor good for 111 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. In testing performed by Edmunds, the new Fiat 500e was able to accelerate from 0-to-60 mph in 8.2 seconds, which is isn’t bad for an electric vehicle with a starting MSRP of just $31,800.

This Star Wars themed Fiat 500e makes more sense when you consider that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced this past summer that it agreed to become a marketing sponsor for the new Star Wars movie.
