Abarth 500e is the small new sports car from the Scorpion brand. Model that was presented, as we know, a few days ago. Apparently, the automaker is working on even more performing variants which will be proposed in the future. News that comes directly from Olivier FrancoisCEO of Fiat and Abarth.
According to reports, Abarth will follow a path similar to that undertaken with the endothermic 500 which is offered in the 595 and 695 variants.
Everyone is already working to make this car even faster, even sportier, even louder.
We recall that the new Abarth 500e has an electric motor that can deliver 114 kW – 155 HP with 235 Nm of maximum torque. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 km/h, while it takes 7 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h. However, Abarth engineers have hinted that this power is close to the limits of the current powertrain which derives strictly from that of the “classic” electric 500. This means that future more powerful variants could have a different motor or different batteries. There will still be a way to find out over time.
Abarth will go beyond just the 500e in the future. Olivier François pointed out that new models will come as the Fiat range grows in the future. The Italian marque is working on 10 cars, 5 of which will arrive in the next 5 years. However, the brand’s number one highlighted that not all future Fiat models will have an Abarth counterpart. It will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
All of these models may have a potential Abarth version, but it wouldn’t make sense to make one for everyone. We will evaluate each individual model in the future and see whether to transform it into an Abarth model.
Therefore, it seems that Abarth will debut several new models over the next few years, obviously also electric given the future of the Stellantis Group. All that remains is to wait for more information.
