In this episode of the Debrief, we put the show into fifth gear as we hurtle towards the future of electric cars in Poland…
TFN visited FSO Syrena to find out how a car from 1955 is the inspiration behind a brand-new new electric vehicle.
Produced between 1957 and 1983, the latter 10 years saw the Syrena beoing manufactured in Bielsko-Biała.
Being one of the first Polish cars, the Syrena was also one of the first cars to gain cult status in Poland. During communism it was the must-have vehicle and a rival to its German counterpart the Trabant.
