Finally, FIAT 600e crossover is officially presented. As expected, the novelty is made in the style of the new generation FIAT 500e and at the same time replaces the FIAT 500X model. Therefore, we have a recognizable design, drawn round headlights (in fact, they are broken by horizontal lines), and we also have the typical dimensions of the B-SUV class: a total body length of 4.17 meters and a 2.56-meter wheelbase. By the way, the ground clearance of the FIAT 600e is declared at 199 mm.
The interior of the new FIAT 600e is also designed in an original style. The front panel received a wide colored insert, which can vary depending on the configuration and color of the body. The central console combines several rows of physical keys for control and a large niche for storage.
As for the instrument panel, it is made in the form of a circle – typical for FIAT 500 or FIAT 500X models – but a fully digital display is inscribed inside. That is, there will be no more “arrows running in circles”.
First, the electric car FIAT 600e, which is built on the СМР/еСМР platform, enters the market – this means the use of an electric motor with a capacity of 115 kW (156 hp) and a battery of 54 kWh, which should be enough for 400 km of power reserve. Front-wheel drive only, acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 9 seconds, maximum speed – 150 km/h.
But in the future, the appearance of hybrid versions, typical for the CMP platform, is expected: they will combine a 1.2-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor. It is going to happen in the middle of 2024: that’s when sales of new products should start.
