From 2027, Fiat will be the electric brand in Europe


(Motorsport-Total.com/Motor1) – From 2027, Fiat’s model range should consist of battery-powered cars only.

This makes it clear to the rest of the Stellantis brand when the combustion engine will end. Previously, the departure dates came out DS (2024)Lancia (2026), Alpha (2027) and Vauxhall (2028) known. Many of these departure dates were announced when the company announced its results for the first half of 2021. Fiat’s announcement will now come with the release of full-year 2021 figures.

So far, Fiat has three electric cars on the market – Fiat 500 e and commercial vehicles e-Ducato and e-Scudo. The e-Ulysse will follow soon, but this is a glazed version of the e-Scudo.

Whether it’s the Centoventi or another car: In any case, the new product roadmap from Stellantis still lists the launch of an electric model for this year or next. It appears with the notation TBA (“To Be Announced”) to the right of the channel in the following chart:

In June 2021, Fiat boss Olivier François said: “Between 2025 and 2030, our product range will gradually be converted to electric vehicles.” In January, the brand boss then promised a new electric Fiat based on the Centoventi, which should have been delivered in 2022 and launched in 2023.
