Looking like an upgraded version of the handpresso auto E.S.E., Italian automaker FIAT has announced that their new 500L for the European market will feature a similar system to give drivers a fresh cup of espresso on demand. The device is a high-pressure pod-using gizmo that fits in a special dock of the car and only works when the car is not in motion.
Their new crossover model the Fiat 500L boasts a whole range of accessories, but the one drawing the most attention and perhaps concerns, is their built-in espresso machine. That's right. Forget your Starbucks runs, or trying to rush out the door to work with your homemade brew. Instead, inside your console you'll find a "new coffee machine created in collaboration with Lavazza," considered to be the Starbucks of Italy.
"The 500L is the first standard-production car in the world to offer a true espresso coffee machine that utilises the technology of the 'A Modo Mio' pods," the company said in a press release. "It is perfectly integrated in the car with a deck designed expressly by Fiat."
