With 178kW of power, the upcoming Abarth electric SUV is the most powerful model from the performance brand yet
Based on the Fiat 600e small SUV that was unveiled last year, the Abarth variant will launch in Europe with a hot Scorpionissima edition, which will be limited to a very specific 1949 units.
The brand has stated that a mechanical limited-slip differential and 178kW of power from a front-driven electric motor will be standard.
Despite bringing the smaller Abarth 500e to Australian shores, a spokesperson from Stellantis told Chasing Cars that “we don’t have plans at this time to bring [the 600e] to Australia”.
The Fiat 600e is a B-segment small SUV by European standards, and will be offered globally in pure electric guise, as well as in hybrid form, during 2024.
The 600e is certainly the larger car when compared to the compact Fiat 500e, which has recently launched here in Australia.
In terms of dimensions, the 600e is 4170mm long, or a significant 538mm longer than the new Fiat 500e.
The regular 600e on which the Abarth version is based is powered by a 115kW electric motor powering the front wheels. Fiat claims a range of 400km (WLTP) combined, or up to 600km (WLTP) in the city thanks to a 54kWh battery pack.
