Live the Dolce Vita

Embrace the new Fiat 600e family SUV and bring some Italian flair into your motoring life

Fiat 600e

Italian flair for all the family

No one does ‘family’ like Italy. Happily, you can now transport your own bambinos in true style with the new 600e, the electric family SUV from Fiat. Considered the ‘big sister’ of the iconic 500e, just as Fiat’s small cars were in the 1950s, the new 600e is a compact car that offers generous space on the inside, while maximising style on the outside. Fiat has been in the car business for 125 years, with one of the richest heritages and extensive experience in designing family cars. So read on to see how you can bring the Dolce Vita into your motoring life.

Driving joy can be sustainable 

The 600e is sprightly and energetic, whether dashing around the city or out of town on the open road. Its 54kWh battery generates 154hp and 260nm of torque, providing a top speed of 93mph and a 0-62mph time of only nine seconds, all with zero tailpipe emissions while driving and just 2% BiK taxation. Drivers can choose between three modes - eco, normal and Sport - tailoring the car to the prevalent road and driving style desired. Fiat’s engineers have paid much attention to keeping the 600e’s weight as low as possible, while also finessing its aerodynamics, resulting in a range of up to 254miles*, rising to as much as 375 miles** in an urban environment. 

Fiat 600e charging

With support for fast charging at 100kW, the 600e can be charged from 20-80% in around 27 minutes. It 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. For peace of mind, the battery itself comes with an eight year/100,000 miles warranty.

For those not quite ready to make the jump to electric yet, there’s also a hybrid option, with a 48 volt automatic hybrid system consisting of a petrol engine and 21kw electric motor, producing a maximum power of 100hp and 205nm of torque.

A design for life

The design of the 600e is assertive: a perfect blend of practicality and Italian flair. Its distinctive front end and LED lighting lead into a stylish silhouette that blends the strength of an SUV with something more sleek and impactful. 

It’s a theme that continues on the inside, with broad splashes of colour and innovative materials defining an interior that priorities space and comfort for all your adventures. Fiat’s engineers worked hard to maximise interior space, particularly for rear seat passengers, improving legroom and access through the doors to help all members of the family enjoy every journey. There are 15 litres of storage in the smart central tunnel, and a generous boot space of 360 litres with a three position boot floor; fold down the rear seats and there’s as much as 1,231 litres available. 

Two model lines: simple yet perfect

Fiat believes that choosing your car shouldn’t be a tedious, complex affair - life is to be enjoyed, not spent with spreadsheets. Instead, there are simply two models of the 600e to choose from: the 600e (RED), and the 600e La Prima. Both offer incredibly comprehensive levels of equipment, with their own unique style too.

The 600e (RED) is a partnership launched in 2021 with RED, an organisation founded in 2006 to ensure preventable and treatable diseases become exactly that for everyone. Fiat believes in respecting the environment and contributing to a more sustainable future: for being good for people and good for the planet. Naturally, the standard colour of the 600e (RED) is red, although black and white are also available.

Although the 600e base model, it still features standard automatic air conditioning, auto sensing headlights and wipers, and a 10.25” touchscreen with DAB radio and wireless Apple Carplay/Android Auto. 

The La Prima model is the 600e flagship - the perfect synthesis of Italian style and functionality. For a start, it’s instantly recognisable on the outside, with 18” diamond cut alloy wheels, a flourish of chrome trim around the side glass, and four unique colours: Sunset Orange (as standard); Sky Blue; Ocean Green; and Sand.

On the inside, La Prima features refreshing Ivory rim including the Eco leather seats with Fiat monogram. There are turquoise accents and velour floor mats, and to really boost your comfort, heated front seats with a massage function for the driver. The 10.25” touchscreen features navigation in addition to wireless Apple Carplay/Google Android, with Fiat Uconnect offering voice control, and TomTom navigation with real time updates for charging and parking along your route. Not to mention an automatic tailgate that requires a simple kick of the leg to open when the remote access key is on your person - ideal when your hands are full of shopping!

Keeping you safe on every journey

Both 600e models feature a raft of advanced safety measures to enhance your safety on every journey, including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist and Intelligent Speed Assistant, amongst others, while the La Prima model goes a step further with Autonomous Driving Level 2 capability. This Active Cruise Control system features both Stop and Go functionality and lane centering tech, taking the stress out of long drives and tiring traffic jams. Moreover, the 360 degree sensors, Blind Spot detection and 180 degree rear-view camera are of real benefit when manoeuvring in tight spaces.
