Design and performance
Abarth claims that the 600e has unique qualities and features, making it distinctive in the electric vehicle market.
As you can see in the photo, the launch edition sports an exclusive Hypnotic Purple body paint that emphasizes its aggressiveness.
Moreover, it has 20″diamond-cut wheels, a sporty fixed roof-mounted spoiler, and new tinted rear lights. It also features a more aggressive lower intake section and new diagonal grilles for better cooling. It also has an aerodynamic rear spoiler to optimize its performance.
It reportedly features a mechanical slip differential and high-performance tyres to enable powerful handling, stability, and traction. Moreover, Abarth 600e’s Scorpionissima launch edition boasts up to 240 horsepower, making it the brand’s most powerful offering to date. It will ride on the new Perfo-eCMP platform, a high-performance product from eCMP.
Abarth plans to finally kick off the production of the new 600e immediately after it completes the necessary final testing in Milan.
According to the news, the Italian brand will only initially produce 1,949 units of the Scorpionissima launch edition.
It remains unknown if Abarth will also launch the new 600e in the US market, as Fiat already announced plans to relaunch the 500e for American customers.
What’s special about Abarth?
Abarth is a legacy rally and performance automaker with nearly 75 years of market presence.
Fiat reportedly took over Abarth in the early 1970s, putting the Italian brand under Stellantis’ portfolio. Nonetheless, Abarth remains committed to producing exceptional, high-performance cars with its iconic scorpion badge but with Fiat’s components.
Excitingly, its latest innovation Abarth 600e presents an all-electric take on the legacy Fiat 600 from the 1950s-60s. However, it would come with notably higher horsepower and an “evil” Hypnotic Purple tint on its limited Scorpionissima launch edition.
Abarth will initially release the 600e’s Scorpionissima launch spec limited to 1,949 units for the global market. The company has yet to announce the specific launch date and pricing of the new high-performance model.
