Fiat continues its electrification plan, announcing an important news regarding the UK market. Starting since Julyin fact, the car manufacturer will only market models equipped with an electrified engine. So, only hybrid and 100% electric cars. This means that it will no longer be possible to order cars equipped with an exclusively internal combustion engine.
The manufacturer recalls that in 2021 in the United Kingdom it offered a range of cars that was already 60% electrified. Now, Fiat takes a further step forward by proposing a 100% electrified range. The electrification of the brand began with the 500 Hybrid and the Panda Hybrid, and continued with the new all-electric 500, followed, lastly, by the new 500X and Tipo Hybrid. Greg TaylorCEO of Fiat and Abarth UK, commented on this news:
This step in Fiat’s history marks a crucial point in our commitment to providing sustainable and affordable mobility solutions for all of our customers.
Also driving this decision is the fact that in the UK people are increasingly asking for hybrid and electric cars. For the Italian market, at the moment, there are no news. We remind you that Fiat will launch a new electric model by 2023. It should be the B-SUV that much has been speculated about in the past. Furthermore, rumors continue on the production version of the Fiat Centoventi concept that many see as the new electric Panda. Model, however, which would arrive later. And for 2030, as we know, the goal is to become an electric-only brand.
A process that, of course, will be progressive with the arrival of new battery-powered models over the next few years.
