The Fiat Concept Car III (FCC III), called “Mio”, is the third concept car entirely developed at the Giovanni Agnelli Development Center (Betim, MG).
The FCC III was unveiled at the Sao Paolo Motor Show on last October, following the FCC I and FCC II, presented at the 2006 and 2008 editions of the show – the largest in Latin America.

  

The design process
An open collaboration project
The Fiat Mio FCC III concept car was created with the involvement of Internet users, who gave their feedback on the theme, the design concept, the choice of materials, and many features of the vehicle, inspired by discussions on the future of the car and the car of the future.

From August 2009 to October 2010, the official website was visited by more than two million people from 160 countries. More than 10,000 ideas were posted by 17,000 registered members of the community.
The design was developed adopting an open platform that uses Creative Commons licenses, thus making it more flexible with regards to copyright.
This approach required a deep change in the design and engineering processes within the company, with the establishment of both a virtual and a physical collaborative process among the online community and the different departments: from the styling center to the engineering, marketing, communication, training, human resources and product. “It was a totally new experience, to re-learn how to make a car.”
According to Fiat, the web portal www.fiatmio.cc will continue the open collaboration and will accept new ideas and solutions for the future of the automobile.
