Now also as a hybrid
With the arrival of the new Fiat 500X Hybrid and Tipo Hybrid, the entire Fiat range has been electrified. Both vehicles have 48 volt hybrid technology. The secret in terms of performance of the Fiat 500X Hybrid and Tipo Hybrid lies in the synergy between the 1.5-cylinder four-cylinder engine FireFly turbo – good for 130 hp and 240 Nm -, 48- Volt, 15-kWh e-motor, and 7-speed automatic dual-clutch gear.
FireFly Power is supported by the BSG electric vehicle. The car can even run electrically, without the combustion engine working. The average consumption in the city is lower than that of the diesel variant (WLTP). The new 48-volt 1.5 T4 Hybrid engine is more economical than the 1.3 T4 engine from the Fiat 500X replacement. Consumption and production of CO2 is up to 11% less (WLTP).
The hybrid system is designed in such a way that during deceleration and breakage, the battery is charged (regenerated). The benefits of this hybrid technology are immediate. These are low consumption, low productivity and, thanks to the smooth transmission of automatic transmission and electricity supply response, more comfort and ease of driving.
