2023 was a pivotal year for Fiatmarked by the launch of news 600 and Topolinoofficially unveiled on July 4 at the Lingotto in Turin. And this is just the beginning of a series of new products planned for the coming years, including the arrival of at least one new model every year until 2027. Between official announcements and rumors, here's what's in store for the future of the Fiat range.

2024: the arrival of the new Fiat Panda

The new Fiat Panda will set the ball rolling in 2024. Expected in July, it will coincide with Fiat's 125th anniversary, an emblematic date for the brand. Based on the Smart Car platform, similar to the recent Citroën e-C3This small 4-metre SUV promises to be Fiat's first low-cost electric car. With a range of 320 km and a starting price of around 23,000 euros, it will be followed by a more affordable electric version offering a range of 200 km and a hybrid version whose prices could start at around 14,000 euros.

2025: launch of a new suv

2025 will see the launch of a mid-size SUV between the B and C segmentsmeasuring just over 4.3 metres. Scheduled for production in Kenitra, Morocco, this car will be closely linked to the new Fiat Panda and could initiate a new family of Fiat models. Although its name has not yet been confirmed, it is provisionally called the new Fiat Multipla and will share features with the new Citroën C3 Aircross, potentially including a 7-seater version.

2026: a year of transition with possible surprises

2026 could mark a period of transition with the discontinuation of production of the Tipo in Turkey and the 500X in Italy. However, speculation suggests that Fiat could surprise with the launch of a larger model, possibly called the Fiat 500XL, which would be an enlarged version of the 500X and positioned at the top of the Fiat range.

2027: new-generation electric Fiat 500

2027 promises to be an interesting year with the planned launch of the new generation electric Fiat 500. Still produced at Mirafiori, this future 500 promises to be even more efficient, technological and autonomous, probably based on the STLA Small platform. As for the design, it's still too early to say, but we can expect an evolution rather than a revolution of the current model.

  1. It's no coincidence that Fiat Heritage is offering for sale a unique example of the Fiat Multipla autographed by Mr Roberto Golito 🙂 on the site you'll find some beautiful vintage visuals and the video of an interview with the legendary designer, the real saviour of Fiat.

      • Of course, it was Roberto Golito who created the Fiat Trepiùno concept in 2004, transformed into a production model in the Fiat 500, 75,000 reservations in 4 months after its presentation, Car of the Year in 2008, WCOTY 2009, sold since then in 90 countries worldwide at nearly three million units.

        • I'm not saying that it didn't help the group increase its profits, but that's forgetting that when the 500 and its family came out, the group no longer had any financial problems and won its lawsuit after GM failed to respect the agreed agreements and the Panda was selling without a hitch, but yes, it did help Fiat climb back into the upper echelons.

  2. Otherwise, I really hope that the refusal to call the Fiat 600 an SUV heralds a genuine Fiat Panda as presented at Geneva under the Centoventi concept, especially since a lower height than the Citroën version will allow for greater efficiency (and therefore more range) while escaping the Dacia "fake SUV/poor man's car" syndrome and keeping the price very accessible.

      • One thing's for sure: when you're designing an SUV, you'd better make sure the technical specifications follow, i.e. all-wheel drive, plenty of torque and the ability to tow. When it's all about the bodywork and the performance underneath, I think it's ridiculous. When you create a city car, you optimize both habitability and fuel consumption, which the C3 doesn't do. I hope that Fiat was bold and understood before anyone else that fake SUVs and their huge grilles hiding three-cylinder engines made no sense. The presentation of the 600 as an "augmented city car" lets us hope so...

        • We'll see how it fares against the current Panda model, which is capable of climbing anywhere like its ancestors, but I have strong doubts, and if it doesn't, sales will literally plummet, and the Jimny will continue to take up the slack, establishing itself everywhere with its 4-seater utility version (which escapes the government's malus) and adapted to run on ethanol.

  3. This is a good program of new products, if hybrid models are also available. The Panda is still a big hit in Italy, where the market for small, economical cars remains strong.
    The new Punto is missing.
    The Multipla had the merit of being different, but also of being one of the ugliest cars on the market. But since then, the big brands have done worse.

    • The Multipla offered 6 real seats, excellent fuel economy and roadholding unrivalled in the segment, while the classy Mercedes A-Class ended up on the roof in the moose test...

      • The A-Class is probably the worst Mercedes ever, a real 4-wheeled turd.
        The Multipla had the merit of originality, but it was still a bit special.

        • It was the time of the triumph of biodesign, and Fiat had the courage to follow Golito and subordinate form to function. It's a true architect's car, as was the first Panda, with a huge glass surface ideal for children and city driving, and a very good chassis. In the end, it sold quite well, and those who chose it appreciated it.

          • Today, we can see that the new Scenic has no modularity whatsoever: it's impossible to remove the rear seats (or rather the bench), nor is it possible to slide them out. Only the Smart #1 does this... Fiat would be well advised to renew these features on its future Multipla, while limiting the length of the hood to maximize the space available on board.

    • Stanilas.

      The Panda is still a big hit in France's mountainous regions, and can be seen everywhere (in Haute Savoie and especially Savoie and Jura). It's the car you see the most, compared with all the other brands, including Fiat, because in its 4WD version it climbs everywhere, and you need a Jimny, a G-Class or a Land to compete.

    • Stanislas
      I don't know about ugly. In the automotive world, we call it atypical or original, because in fact no car in the world is ugly.

      Fredo
      It's easy to forget the Honda Jazz, which was based on the same concept, with equally effective roadholding and an extraterrestrial reliability that the Multipla didn't have, with its repetitive electronic bugs but a mechanical reliability worthy of Honda.

  4. The FRV was based on the same 3×2 layout, but sold far less... And the Multipla was actually very reliable mechanically, even if the quality of the interior plastics and their assembly was average, it rarely required major work. The kind of vehicle capable of reaching a million kms with regular maintenance...

    • Fredo
      That's exactly what I just said about the multipla. It's the Jazz that had 6 seats and no, it sold well and continues to sell, especially in the USA where Honda's image is as imperial as that of Toyota or Mazda.
      The Multipla is like the Thesis, a hypochondriac that often complains but never leaves you stranded on the road.

  5. Bravo Fiat, your Pandas are the stars of the Pyrenees! So surprise us once again with your innovative designs, because the countries and also the towns are going to throw themselves at your models, just like the illustration! Keep your soul! Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you!

  6. The A-Class was a fiasco because its handling, even after modifications that cost Mercedes a fortune, disastrous reliability (rarely did the engines live to 100,000km without a total overhaul, and the gearbox was a horror that had to be drained every 25,000 on pain of breakage) and electronic bugs that were never solved, so dried up Mercedes' finances that they preferred to use the Mégane platform to make the A-Class. Even for the Forfour, they called on Mitsubishi to design it on the basis of the Colt, because all the other Smart models have been a reliability disaster, as I've experienced with rental agencies (engine and turbo didn't make it past 50,000km without breaking, at a cost greater than the price of the vehicle itself, and at 100,000km it was ready for the scrap heap). This was also a huge financial drain for Mercedes.

  7. Smart fortwo cars are more like buggies than cars. With the Fisher price interior borrowed from the toy brand to boot.
    I hear Smart Roadsters are fun to drive, but when it comes to reliability, you don't have to be picky.
    Let's wait and see about the future Fiat Panda, but don't judge it before it's released.

    • We'll just have to see what the Citroën's abilities can do, and we'll understand right away. The Forfour was nothing like a small car, being a Colt in disguise.

    • I was thinking of the Smart #1, which is based on the Volvo EX30, a 4.30m electric propulsion unit that's no mean feat in terms of competition...
