From 2023 on, Fiat will once again sell a non-Punto vehicle that is not named Punto. This is followed by the Panda and 500, both of which have distinct designs and electric propulsion. As a result of the merger between FCA (Fiat Chrysler) and PSA (Peugeot/Citron) to establish the Stellantis Company, the different brands within the mega-group reflect on their heritage and leverage technological synergies to create fresh versions of classic vehicles.
Fiat will provide its model series totally electrically by 2027 at the latest, using the four new electric STLA platforms that Stellantis announced in the summer of 2021 and which would be used sequentially beginning in 2023. With the motto: “It’s Only Green When It’s Green for Everyone” (translated: “It’s only green when it’s green for everyone”), Fiat is a leader in inexpensive and environmentally friendly transportation.
Olivier Francois, the head of the brand, told British media that he is confident in the initiative “Fiat should be the Tesla of the masses: electric for everybody. Clearly, the price of electrification must decrease. We will arrive by 2027, or even before. That depends on the price. I want us to be the first mass-market brand to transition to all-electric vehicles.”
Additionally, the new Fiat Punto is electric
The Italians want to provide a total of 10 models, including four light commercial vehicles, the Strada for the South American market, and five global automobiles. These include all models of the Fiat 500, three crossovers, and a B-segment vehicle beginning in 2023. This vehicle will have the same size as the Punto, but it will not be named the Punto, according to Francois.
Since the STLA-Small will not be ready until 2026, the Punto replacement will initially be built on the CMP (Common Modular Platform) created by PSA, which is also used by the Peugeot 208, the Opel Corsa, and the SUV rivals Opel Mokka, DS 3 Crossback, and Peugeot 2008. In addition, the eCMP has an electric-only drivetrain (e-Corsa or e-208). Currently, electric vehicles have a range of around 340 kilometers.

From 2022 through 2027, Fiat plans to introduce a new model year. According to Olivier Francois, the design of the five global vehicles has been finished, and two of them are heavily impacted by the 2019 Centoventi Concept. The brand’s executive left the matter as well as the precise time open. The Fiat 500 and the Panda are our two most recognizable automobiles.
“In the universe of the Fiat 500, there are two distinct models: the 500 and the 500X. There is still space for something elegant and urban to be added.” On the other side is a panda. It is interpreted in a contemporary manner while retaining its minimalist claim. In this instance as well, Francois notes the Centoventi, whose minimalist aesthetic recalls the panda. “There will be smaller automobiles and bigger crossovers.
Fiat will stay between 3.6 and 4.5 meters in length, leaving the D sector to its sibling brand Citron. This implies that by 2026, all Fiat models will be based on the STLA compact platform with electrical modules capable of producing up to 70 kW.
The Fiat Punto, which will no longer be named Punto, will return in 2023 after a five-year absence. This is due to the platform strategy of the huge Stellantis group, which has the ability to roll out the “CMP” and “eCMP” platforms to several companies.
After the replacement of the Punto, the Fiat 500 and Panda series will get new models. Here, the completed designs are based on the Centoventi research. However, there is no specific timeline; the only thing that is certain is that Fiat intends to provide completely electric vehicles beginning in 2027.
