Fiat 600e crossover to start from £32,995
The all-electric model will also come as a hybrid next year
Fiat has announced its all electric 600e crossover will start from £32,995 when it goes on sale in October, ahead of a petrol-hybrid version next year.
Consequently, it compares favourably with its Stellantis counterparts in terms of range, boasting up to 249 miles according to Fiat.
There is a single powertrain option available for the 600e, featuring a familiar 54kWh battery that supplies power to a 154bhp electric motor positioned at the front wheels.
This powertrain enables the 600e to accelerate from 0 to 62mph in approximately nine seconds. Charging is efficient, with the capability to charge from 20 to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes when using a 100kW charger. Additionally, the vehicle comes equipped with an 11kW onboard charger.
The petrol-hybrid version consists of a 1.2-litre engine and an electric motor, making a combined output of 134bhp. It is paired to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Fiat has maintained a straightforward approach to trim levels, offering just two options.
The base model, the FIAT 600e Red, incorporates distinctive elements like 'RED' exterior logos, a red-accented dashboard, and red details on the upholstery.
It has 16-inch wheels, gloss black wing mirror caps and matte black side skirts. Automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, keyless ignition, and LED lighting at the front and rear also come as standard.
The 600e La Prima, starting at £36,995, rides on larger 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, and has chrome exterior accents. Inside meanwhile is an ivory-finished dashboard, and onboard tech includes a 180-degree rear view camera, and a wireless smartphone charging pad.
Both versions come equipped with a standard 7-inch driver's display and a 10.25-inch central infotainment screen, featuring wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The La Prima, however, gets integrated navigation plus an upgraded sound system.
Deliveries for the all-electric version are scheduled to commence earlier next year, and pricing for the petrol-hybrid model is expected to cost from around £30,000.
