Yesterday, european manufacturers swore by the diesel engine to cope with hybrid cars and vehicles that were announcing. Now here after using the system "Stop & Start" on most of their different models in recent years, here is a listing feerie new hybrid models on the old continent.

Even the manufacturer Fiat engineers are currently working on the opportunity to offer their model "500" driven by such an engine. Thus, after the Honda Fit / Jazz hybrid, Toyota Yaris hybrid and other small cars has come, it is now plausible that Fiat will follow the trend.

As it should, the hybrid version of the small "500" will receive a small atmospheric twin engine TwinAir 900 cc whose power would be around 65 horses. Battery ultra mild lithium-ion take the place of the spare wheel. A turbocharged version with 105 horsepower could be proposed. Robotized gearbox has dual clutch six-speed TCT would complement the whole.

According to the data of the manufacturer, and we hope to improve consumption 24% in urban driving and 12% on average. Autonomy announced could vary between 240 and 320 km. A full recharge take eight hours via a household outlet or two times faster through a 220 V.
