Fiat has confirmed that every car it sells in the UK will be either hybrid or electric from July 2022. 

The Italian car brand has been slowly ramping up its range of hybrids and EVs, and is now set to remove all non-electrified models from its line-up. 

Fiat started introducing electrified models with mild-hybrid versions of its 500 and Panda city cars, before taking a big step in 2021 with the launch of a brand new electric 500, a model that has proven popular.


In 2022, Fiat launched new mild-hybrid versions of its 500X crossover and Tipo hatchback, helping to bring customers lower running costs. 

This announcement means the end of the turbocharged 1.0-litre ‘FireFly’ petrol engine in the 500X and regular 1.0-litre petrol engines in the Tipo, and follows on from the recent discontinuation of the 500L people carrier and four-wheel-drive versions of the Panda. 

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.”


Fiat has already said it will become an electric-only brand by 2030, with the next model in the pipeline set to be the long-awaited Panda replacement, previewed a few years ago by the Centoventi concept car.
