(NEW YORK) — Italian automaker Fiat made headlines when it introduced a new line of stylish compact cars. And it’s making headlines again with its 500L model, which will come with a built-in espresso maker when it hits the market this fall.
“The 500L is the first standard-production car in the world to offer a true espresso coffee machine that [uses] the technology of the ‘A Modo Mio’ pods,” a press release said. “It is perfectly integrated in the car with a deck designed expressly by Fiat.”
The espresso makers will be created in collaboration with Lavazza, an Italian coffee company.
It addition to premium coffee, the car will also offer a premium sound system created by Beats Audio.
Fiat says its new model offers greater functionality and space, user-friendly technology that’s also eco-friendly and a “trend-setting” interior design.
