- Fiat to remove all non-electrified vehicles from sale in the UK this year
- Italian manufacturer takes another important step towards sustainable mobility for all
- 2021 saw the biggest annual increase in electric vehicle registrations in the UK
In 2021, more than 60% of Fiat’s line-up was electrified offering at least one low emission version of each model for UK customers. This year, the Italian manufacturer goes a step further by confirming 100% of the range will be electrified from July 2022.
The brand’s electrification journey began with the 500 Hybrid and Panda Hybrid, and continued with the fully-electric New 500, followed most recently by the new 500X and Tipo Hybrid. Fiat now offers at least one low-emission version for each model and takes a further step along the path of energy transition and sustainable mobility with its latest announcement of only electrified models being sold in the UK starting this summer.
Last year saw the biggest annual increase in electric vehicle registrations with an 88.3% increase in BEV, a 43% increase in HEV, and an 18.5% increase in MHEV (YTD 2022)*. With 30 international awards to date, the fully-electric New 500 is the best-selling electric city car in eleven countries and the second best-selling electric car in any segment in Europe, behind only Tesla. In Italy and France, it is the best-selling electric model ever, while it ranks second in Germany, the largest electric car market in Europe. It continues its journey that began in Europe, moving into Brazil and Japan.
Greg Taylor, Fiat and Abarth UK Managing Director, commented: “This step in Fiat’s history marks a pivotal point in our commitment to providing affordable and sustainable mobility solutions for all of our customers. The move lends itself to our vehicles which are suited to urban areas, spearheaded by the popularity of the New 500.”
