With the introduction of the Fiat 500X Hybrid, Fiat only sells cars with electrified powertrains. Now it is also known what the 500X equipped with mild-hybrid technology should cost.
Fiat recently introduced new mild-hybrid engine versions for both the Tipo and 500X. The regular 500 that will be delivered alongside the electric 500e was already only available as a Hybrid, which means that the entire Fiat range now consists of cars with electrified or fully electric powertrains. The new mild-hybrid powertrains have pushed the non-electrified 1.0 and 1.3 off the price lists. AutoWeek can now report what the new mild-hybrid Fiat 500X Hybrid should cost.
Do not be alarmed by the new starting price of the 500X. It has been set at €30,990. The Fiat 500X Hybrid has a 130 hp and 240 Nm strong 1.5 under the hood that works together with a 20 hp electric unit. The new Hybrid powertrain replaces both the 120 hp 1.0 and 150 hp 1.3 turbo engines. Where the 1.0 was only available with a manual transmission and the 1.3s were equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, the Fiat 500X Hybrid always has a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
The starting price of €30,990 applies to the Fiat 500X Hybrid as a Club. Fiat also supplies the 500X 1.5 Hybrid as Cross, Sport and Red and all versions can now be combined with a new electrically operated fabric roll-top. The 500X then gets the addition ‘Cabrio’. The Fiat 500X Hybrid costs in Club trim with the dolcevita called roll-top €33,990. The roll-top roof also has an additional cost of €3,000 for the Cross, Sport and Red flavors. Base version Club includes the Uconnect system with 7-inch multimedia screen, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, 16-inch alloy and air conditioning.
As before, the 500X is also available as a lavishly decorated Yacht Club Capri, a beautifully decorated version that has always been designed as a ‘Cabrio’. Fiat is asking €38,990 for the 500X Hybrid Yacht Club Capri (Convertible). This top version has, among other things, an interior fully covered with light leather, a blue convertible roof and almost all options that Fiat can supply on the 500X.
The Fiat 500X 1.5 Hybrid will be available at dealers from May.
