The Fiat 600The electric SUV that replaces the Fiat 500X, has been spied in the dark during a movie shoot in Italy.
In an image shared on the Instagram account cochespias, we can see a Fiat 600 followed by a film crew on the streets of Italy. Another image of a different vehicle has been shared by the Italian site Tiscali.
While the model has previously been spied in camouflage wrap, these images show the vehicle’s styling as it looks to be production ready.
A ‘600’ logo adorning the front, and a custom license plate, confirm that the model will drop the 500X to use the 600 badge.
Styling up front is similar to the smaller 500e. There is a circular area where the lamp itself sits at the bottom, with LED daytime running lights running along the lower edge of the circle.
The interior has been spied before and appears to feature a large round instrument cluster reminiscent of the Mini, as well as a rectangular tablet-style touchscreen that sits atop the center stack.
The SUV is expected to be underpinned by the CMP/e-CMP platform, with technical specifications similar to the Jeep Avenger and other Stellantis small crossovers such as the Citroen C4 and Peugeot 2008.
Petrol-powered petrols and hybrids are also supported by the CMP/e-CMP architecture and may be introduced in mainstream markets.
The related Avenger, for example, offers a petrol engine only in a handful of European markets such as Spain.
Like the Avenger, power is expected to come from a 115kW/260Nm electric motor and a 54kWh cobalt manganese nickel lithium-ion battery to provide a range of around 400 km.
We can expect to learn more about the technical specifications of the model in the coming months, which is expected to debut later this year for the 2024 model year.
The 600 is expected to enter production at the Stellantis plant in Tychy, Poland alongside the Avenger and the upcoming entry-level Alfa Romeo crossover.
Although the Fiat 500X is still offered in markets such as Europe and the US, it has been discontinued locally in 2021 as the brand “refocuses on consumer choice”.
Fiat currently sells only the 500-year-old city car and the large Ducato van. However, the local lineup will get an electric 500e mid-year.
The Italian brand is focusing on its electric expansion, confirming earlier this year that it will unveil two new electric vehicles (EVs) this year, likely under the Panda and Punto nameplates.
