The firm produced refrigerators and oil heaters. In 1942, Genoa was bombed and Rivolta decided to move his business to the city of Bresso, not far from Milan.


There he bought a villa with a large plot of land, on which he began construction of new production facilities, which were ready by 1946.


With the end of WWII, Rivolta decided to expand his business. Having bought the Officine Ottavio Quadrio factory, in 1948 he began production of Furetto scooters under the Iso brand. The first pancake was lumpy. The scooters were unreliable.


At the end of 1949, the Isoscooter 125 scooter and the Isomoto 125 motorcycle appeared. In 1952, the Isocarro three-wheeled cargo scooter appeared.

In 1953, at the show in Turin, the company shows its first passenger car, the Isetta. The car had a drop-shaped body and was equipped with a single-cylinder engine with a volume of 236 cc located in the rear.


The motor was an enlarged engine from the Isomoto 200 motorcycle and developed 9.5 hp, which allowed the machine to accelerate to 70 km / h. The rear wheel track was much narrower than the front.


In 1998, they started talking about the company again. This time Piero Rivolta decided to go into the production of microcars.


The plans were to deliver these products to Nederlands, Belgium, France and even the United States, but cars with a 500 cc engine with a capacity of 20 horsepower, which were called Iso Isigo, did not go into production.


In 2017, the Iso Rivolta Vision Gran Turismo project was presented to the Zagato studio, but the production of the car was not planned.
