Fiat 500 and Panda Hybrid Edition Seaqual Design Preview

"Fiat has confirmed pricing and specifications for upcoming mild-hybrid variants of its 500 and Panda superminis.

Under the bonnet of both cars is a new powertrain that links a three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine with a 12-volt electric motor, with the latter working to improve efficiency by allowing the petrol unit to remain switched off for longer. Powering both cars is a new powertrain, combining a three-cylinder engine and 12-volt electric motor (Fiat)

This new combination produces 69bhp and 92Nm of torque, sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Fiat claims the 500 equipped with this new unit can achieve 53.3mpg on the WLTP Combined cycle while emitting 88g/km of CO2, while the Panda is said to be capable of 49.6mpg and 89g/km of CO2 respectively.

Though visually near-identical to regular versions of the 500 and Panda, each of these electrified models will be distinguished by a ‘Hybrid’ logo at the rear as well as a ‘H’ pattern made from a design of two drew drops in the centre console."
