Never has an Abarth been so powerful. But purists risk choking when they see that it’s with an electric SUV!
Announced recently, the Abarth 600e is already official. Even if we have to be content with just one photo for the moment. The brand preferred to anticipate the photos which are about to appear on the Internet while it is in the process of taking photos and videos of the car in the streets of Milan. This is also how we were able to discover the new Lancia Ypsilon in advance.
After looking at the 500e, Abarth therefore tackled the 600e, Fiat’s new small urban SUV. But if the aesthetic customization may have seemed timid on the 3-door, Abarth has let loose more on the adventurer. The 600e has a much more aggressive look with the imposing air intake which seems ready to eat asphalt. We can also see an imposing fin. The published photo corresponds to the limited series which will be offered at launch, the Scorpionissima. Offered in 1949 units, it received huge 20-inch rims.
Test – Abarth 500e: an extra toy?
This Abarth 600e is not just a show-off. The mechanics will be in tune. While the Fiat version announces 156 hp, the Abarth climbs to 240 hp. Which therefore makes it a record for a series model from the scorpion brand. The latter does not say more about performance. She is also careful not to talk about autonomy, which risks taking a hit with the power and the big wheels!
The vehicle will have a limited slip differential developed for the specific needs of the electric motor. Braking will also be revised, with larger brake discs and wider disc surfaces for better heat dissipation and better resistance to fading.
