Abarth, a brand in the Stellantis Group, has given a first look at the new Abarth 600e which was out in the public eye as it was at the shooting of a new commercial in Italy.
More advanced platform
Riding on a new platform based on the well-known eCMP, now renamed Perfo-eCMP, it will be the most powerful production model in the company’s 75-year history, with a 240 ps output from its electric powertrain. Development work has been done by Abarth in collaboration with Stellantis Motorsport.
To ensure excellent driving stability, improved handling, and traction, Abarth engineers have added a mechanical limited-slip differential – unique for an electric car.
Experience from Formula E
It will also have an advanced braking system with bigger brake discs and larger disc surfaces for better heat dissipation and fading resistance. Developed from experience in Formula E racing, the tyres ensure maximum grip without compromising on range and acoustics.
Thanks to the softer compound tread on the exterior and centre area, they provide extra grip when cornering and improved range, while the polyurethane insert ensures acoustic insulation (20% lower perceived noise level).
Inside, the high-comfort seats with racing ergonomics contribute to a comfortable ride even on the ‘most extreme journeys’. Made up of 4 different foams for optimized support on each area of the body, the high-performance seats feature an enveloping shape to contain bends and emphasize lateral support. Higher-density foam guarantees high durability.
Special launch edition
