The two cars, in fact, can now be powered with the same powertrain seen on the Alfa Romeo Tonale as well as on the Jeep Compass and Renegade: the mechanics exploit the synergy between the four-cylinder turbo of the FireFly family – displacement of 1.5 liters, 130 HP of power. and 240 Nm of torque – and an electric motor of just over 20hp, housed in the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The battery-powered unit allows a silent and 100% electric start and supports the thermal improving its efficiency and performance, allowing the vehicle to travel with zero exhaust emissions in different situations. According to the parent company, the electrified technology allows you to consume less than a diesel engine does: 4.7l / 100 km against 5.0l / 100 km of the 1.6 Type diesel engine; 5.1l / 100 km against the 5.4l / 10 0km of the 1.6 diesel engine of 500X.

Fiat. It is possible to take advantage of the power supply alone to make short and repeated forward movements without pressing the accelerator – as in traffic jam – and for parking. In addition, the hybrid power supply is designed to recover energy during both braking and deceleration.

Today we can offer all our customers a sustainable mobility solution, whatever their mobility needs, with simple technology and at an affordable cost, and I am extremely proud of this because it is consistent with our vision: ‘It’s only green when it’s green for all ‘. But that’s not all. Our journey towards sustainable mobility for all continues, the goal – as I have already announced – is to launch a new vehicle every year as early as next year, each with an electric engine and to have a fully electric range from 2027 ”.
