FIAT continues to lead the way for sustainable urban mobility and presents the New FIAT 600e, a great addition to the brand’s range that marks its return to the B-segment. It does so by taking everything you love about the B-segment and upgrading it in every aspect: increased space, increased range, increased Dolce Vita feel. Simply put, the New Fiat 600e takes the best of the B and B-SUV worlds to offer a beautiful, joyful, and pampered driving experience.
Following the success of its predecessor and best-seller, the FIAT 600 from the ‘50s, also renowned as the family mover, the New FIAT 600e places itself at the heart of the fast-growing B segment.
The New FIAT 600e represents the ideal solution for both city lovers and outdoor enthusiasts and is the perfect embodiment of the brand’s values of Italian style and sustainability. It’s cool and beautiful, it has a generous length of 4.17 metres with comfortable roominess for five people, best-in-class front storage, it boasts an electric range of more than 250 miles (WLTP combined cycle) and more than 372 miles in the city (WLTP urban cycle) and offers state-of-the-art safety features.
Available in two different full-electric versions, New FIAT 600e La Prima and New FIAT 600e (RED), it is a family-friendly solution to fully experience pure Italian Dolce Vita, with an eye to the environment and social causes.
New FIAT 600e
Available as a five-door, the New FIAT 600e offers impressive space habitability with its five seats and 15 litres of interior storage. Customers can store their personal items in the smart central tunnel – which comes with a customised cover pad and flexible cupholders for a comfortable break, plus seat pockets and strategic front storage spaces. The boot boasts a generous 360 litres of load capacity.
In addition to space versatility, the model features great electric capability. The lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 54 kWh give the New 600e a range of more than 250 miles in the WLTP combined cycle and more than 372 miles in the urban cycle, making the model the ideal vehicle for both city daily use and weekend getaways.
To optimise charging time, the New 600e is equipped with a 100-kW fast charger system to charge the battery very quickly. For example, it takes less than half an hour to charge the battery to 80% – about the same time needed to pack your car for a weekend away. The model also comes with an 11kW onboard charger and a Mode 3 cable for charging at home or in public, which ensures a full charge in less than 6 hours.
The engine has an output of 115 kW, providing acceleration from 0-62 mph in 9.0 seconds. The New FIAT 600e gives customers the choice: each customer can drive their own way, thanks to the inclusion of three driving modes: eco, normal, sport – which can be selected to match their driving style.
Iconic outside, Dolce Vita inside
The New FIAT 600e, also referred to as the 500e’s bigger sister, takes its name from the original 600 and brings Italian coolness and fresh style. Its exterior and interior design perfectly embodies Italian beauty and Dolce Vita philosophy.
Compared to the 500e, its augmented look features a sharper and more assertive face, a 600-chrome refreshed signature both on the front and on the sides, and a renewed LED lighting identity. The elegant yet dynamic exterior look is enhanced by the bigger wheels (up to 18” and a diameter of 690mm), matte black skirts and wheel arches, while the typical Italian style is also to be seen in the Italian flag in the rear bumper. Several charming features highlight its exterior lines, such as the glossy black details, chrome accents and shining cues on the rear lights.
Inside, the New FIAT 600e perfectly embodies the Italian Dolce Vita thanks to several features specifically designed to offer the best pampering experience. The driver’s seat is equipped with power seat adjustment and a back massage function to relax after a long trip or a busy day at work. The New FIAT 600e also offers Ivory synthetic leather seats with FIAT monogram, turquoise accents and three-stage heating for maximum comfort.
Velour floor mats, 40/60 rear seats, USB type A & type C + type C on second row, a wireless charger for smartphones and keyless entry with proximity sensor, complete the equipment.
Augmented technology: state of art safety features and connectivity
The New FIAT 600e is also packed with state-of-the-art safety and assistance features, offering level 2 assisted driving, bringing all the associated benefits to your journey.
The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system brakes or accelerates in response to any car; the Intelligent Speed Assist reads the speed limits and recommends applying them, while the Blind Spot Detection uses ultrasonic sensors to monitor the blind spots and warn of any obstacles with warning lights on the wing mirror. State-of-the-art technology also includes Stop & Go functionality, Electric Parking Brake, Autonomous Emergency Braking for recognising cyclists and pedestrians, and drowsy driver detection to monitor driver concentration levels. Finally, the 360° sensors and the rear-view camera 180° view with dynamic gridlines help to avoid any obstacles when parking or performing complex manoeuvres.
In terms of comfort and connectivity, the New FIAT 600e is packed with several features that will make every trip more pleasant. It is equipped with a hands-free power liftgate – a joy for all those parents who always have a thousand things in hand, all powered windows, auto air conditioning and dusk and rain sensors.
A six-speaker sound system, 10.25” fully customisable radio with Navi, CarPlay and Android Auto wireless, a 7” digital cluster and connected services, complete the offering.
FIAT 600e offers Uconnect services to support customers on a daily basis, with voice commands that communicate with the onboard connected navigation – the TomTom navigation system. The navigation system’s maps update automatically, display all the charging stations available on the route and provide real-time information on available free parking spaces on public roads to save time and money when travelling.
And with the FIAT application, enjoying more comfort has never been so easy, in fact, many features can be operated remotely such as use of lights, horn, central opening/closing of doors, heating or air conditioning (subscription fees may apply).
Top of the range La Prima and the more accessible (RED)
Perfectly suitable for those young customers looking for an ethical and eco-friendly mobility solution, the New FIAT 600e (RED) represents the most accessible version of the New FIAT 600e and is a further step of a partnership with (RED) launched in 2021 from the belief that each of us can lead the change.
Following in the footsteps of the 500 (RED), the mission is to be “good for the people and good for the planet”: it’s in fact electric, to respect the environment and contribute to a more sustainable future. That mission is now going even further with (RED), the organisation working to combat pandemics founded in 2006 to fight AIDS and ensure preventable and treatable disease is preventable and treatable for everyone.
The New FIAT 600e (RED) takes on the colour red as a hallmark, both outside – from the bodywork to the front and rear logos – and in – dashboard fascia and design cues on the exclusive recycled fabric seats. The (RED) pad cover of the smart central tunnel serves as a further reminder of the partnership. Two more colours are available to further customise it: black and white.
The New FIAT 600e La Prima offers 100% style, technology and comfort to ensure an immersive Italian Dolce Vita experience. It is available in four different colours that recall Italian beauty and natural landscapes: Sun of Italy, Sea of Italy, Earth of Italy, Sky of Italy.
Ordering in the UK will open from the Autumn with the first customer deliveries expected later in the Winter. UK pricing and specification will be confirmed nearer to the start of sales.
