Launched in February on the Panda Hybrid Launch Edition, the exclusive special series that debuted at the same time as the 500 Hybrid Launch Edition, Mild Hybrid technology is now available across the New Panda line-up, providing all the benefits of efficient, compact, lightweight and accessible hybrid driving. In short, it is the best city car solution and is perfectly in line with the approach taken by Fiat, an increasingly sustainable pioneer of technology and an innovator in mobility.
The gasoline Mild Hybrid engine pairs the new Euro 6D Final-compliant 70 hp (51.5 kW) 3-cylinder 1-liter engine from the FireFly family with a BSG (Belt-integrated Starter Generator) electric motor. The latter recovers energy during braking and deceleration, stores it in a lithium battery with a capacity of 11 Ah, and uses it, at a peak output of 3.6 kW, to restart the engine in Stop&Start mode and to assist acceleration.
Compared to the 1.2 69 hp Fire, the Panda’s Mild Hybrid engine improves fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions by up to 30%, guaranteeing the same performance and ensuring a very high standard of comfort, even when restarting. The BSG system also means the internal combustion engine can restart very quietly and vibration-free when stopping and setting off again.
The transmission takes on the new 6-speed gearbox, designed to further optimize the engine’s range of usage. The New Panda Hybrid also gives customers access to all the advantages of hybrid vehicle homologation, which – depending on local regulations – include freedom of access and movement in city centers, cheaper parking in towns and tax breaks.
On demand, the New Panda can also be fitted with the new D-Fence by Mopar pack, consisting of three devices for optimum car hygiene: a filter that stops impurities getting into the car from outside, blocks particulates and practically 100% of allergens, and reduces the formation of mold and bacteria by 98%; a purifier for the air inside the passenger compartment, which filters out micro-particles such as pollen or bacteria; and a UV lamp to cleanse all the contact surfaces in our cars: the steering wheel, the gear stick, and the seats.
Aimed at a young, dynamic customer attracted to a sporty, characterful style, the New Panda Sport complements the “Fiat Sport family”, currently consisting of the 500X, 500L and Tipo models.
The new Panda Sport is instantly recognizable from its distinctive aesthetics: the new two-tone 16″ alloy wheels with black and red rim covers; the handles and wing mirror housing in the same color as the bodywork, on demand in gloss black paired with a black roof (optional); and the exclusive chrome “sport” logo on the side panel, above the direction indicator. A new and exclusive Matt Gray livery is also available.
The same bold features can also be found in the interiors, where the standouts include the new titanium-colored dashboard, specific door panels in eco-leather, black ceiling and new seats with dark gray upholstery, techno-leather details, fabric side panels and red stitching. And for the customer who wants an even bolder image, the New Panda Spot can be fitted on demand with the Pandemonio Pack – a clear homage to the kit launched in 2006 on the on the Panda 100 HP – which includes red brake calipers, blacked-out windows and the new techno-leather steering wheel with red stitching.
Finally, features as standard include the new 7’” touchscreen radio with DAB digital system, set up for Apple CarPlay and compatible with Android Auto™, and a smartphone bracket.
