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.
The third New Panda soul is ‘Cross’, available in the City Cross and Cross trims, with a distinctive and off-road character. Both versions are available with 4×2 and 4×4 traction, and can now be methane-powered.
Specifically, the New Panda City Cross was designed for customers looking for a city car resembling an off-roader, at an accessible price
Aesthetically, the new model comes with the new Ceramic Blue pastel livery, a perfect combination with the new two-tone (blue and black) techno-leather upholstery on the door panels and seats, the latter embellished by silver-colored stitching and fabric side panels. In the center of the dashboard is the new 7” touchscreen radio (optional) and automatic air conditioning, which comes as standard. The new Panda City Cross is complemented by LED DRL headlights and features in black, such as the roof rack and side sills, which accentuate its urban look.
It features stylish new 15″ wheel rims, double red tow hook below the bumper grille, chrome paintwork for skid plates, roof rack and side shock absorber bands with the wording ‘cross’ in relief in black.
The wide range of equipment as standard includes rear parking sensors, automatic air conditioning, leather steering wheel, new black techno-leather door panels, new ‘woody’ dashboard in recycled materials and new 7” touchscreen radio complete with DAB digital radio, set up for Apple CarPlay and compatible with Android Auto™ and smartphone bracket. Other new features: two-tone seats made with sustainability in mind, the center panel of which are spun with a special eco-friendly fabric with at least 37” recycled plastic from the land. The seats are embellished with brown side stitching in fabric, eco-leather details and specific “cross” logo.
