Fiat has begun the production of its new electric SUV, the 600e, at its plant in Tychy, Poland. The 600e is a modern and eco-friendly reinterpretation of the iconic Fiat 600, which was launched in 1955 and became one of the most popular cars in Europe. The 600e is also the first Fiat model to be built on the Common Modular Platform (CMP), a flexible architecture that can accommodate different types of powertrains, including electric and hybrid.
The Fiat 600e is designed to appeal to customers who are looking for a spacious, versatile, and stylish SUV that can offer a range of more than 250 miles (WLTP) on a single charge. The 600e is powered by a 54 kWh battery and a 154 hp electric motor that can deliver a top speed of 93 mph and a 0-62 mph acceleration in 9 seconds. The battery can be recharged up to 80% in less than 30 minutes using a fast charger.
The exterior of the 600e features a distinctive design that combines retro elements with modern touches. The front end is dominated by the circular LED headlights and the 600 logo above the grille, while the rear end features the Italian flag embossed on the bumper. The side profile is characterized by the muscular wheel arches and the roof rails that enhance the SUV look. The 600e is available in four colors inspired by the natural elements of Italy: orange (Sun), green (Sea), sand (Earth), and blue (Sky).
