Fiat has announced the removal of all non-electrified vehicles from sale in the UK. This will take effect from 1st July 2022.
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, but now the Italian manufacturer has confirmed 100% of the range will be electrified from July 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.
In February 2022, Fiat announced the arrival of the new 500X and Tipo Hybrid, completing the electrification of its line-up.
Greg Taylor, Fiat and Abarth UK Managing Director, said: “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.”
