With the launch of the mild-hybrid version of Fiat 500, the electrification of Fiat's model program begins. Moreover, this development continues when the brand new Fiat 500 as a pure electric car is put into production.
The Fiat 500 Hybrid becomes the first model with the new mild-hybrid engine. The latest version of Fiat's three-cylinder FireFly engine is combined with a 12-volt electric BSG (Belt-integrated Starter Generator) engine and a lithium battery.
It offers a number of benefits. Compared to the previous 1.2-litre Fire engine with 69hp, the new mild-hybrid engine has better fuel efficiency. On average, it reduces CO 2 emissions by 20% without compromising performance. The new engine also ensures a sound and vibration-low start of the internal combustion engine at Start & Stop driving, as well as living up to the latest and most stringent emission standards.
