    Fiat Announces Launch of Fiat 600 Hybrid in the United Kingdom

    Fiat has announced that alongside the fully electric Fiat 600e, a petrol-electric hybrid version, the Fiat 600 Hybrid, will also be available starting in spring 2024. This new compact crossover is based on the eCMP2 platform, the same platform used in the Jeep Avenger, and will feature a 1.2-liter petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.

    Initially, the Fiat 600 was planned to be exclusively electric in the United Kingdom, but Fiat has decided to introduce the hybrid variant as well. This decision aligns with the brand’s commitment to offer customers options that cater to their needs, especially considering that electric cars account for only one in five cars sold in the UK.

    The Fiat 600 Hybrid will be equipped with a 48V mild hybrid system, which is also being implemented in other Stellantis models. This system combines a 28 horsepower electric motor integrated into a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, resulting in a combined power output of 134 horsepower. This configuration allows for full electric progress at low speeds.

    CO2 emissions for the Fiat 600 Hybrid are expected to be between 110-114g/km, while fuel economy figures have not been confirmed yet but are estimated to be around 52-55mpg.

    Details regarding pricing and availability of the Fiat 600 Hybrid have not been announced yet, but it is expected to start at around £30,000, with deliveries scheduled to begin in the first half of 2024.

    The addition of the Fiat 600 Hybrid expands the options for customers interested in the Fiat 600 but prefer a hybrid powertrain instead of a fully electric one. This move reflects a broader trend among car manufacturers to offer a variety of powertrain options to cater to different customer preferences.
