Abarth 600e: the most powerful Abarth ever

The new Abarth features system power of 176 kW (240 hp) and a smart braking system, which offers more power and stability thanks to large brake discs and large disc surfaces for better heat dissipation and more resistance to “brake fading.

New tires

Newly developed tires derived from experiences in Formula E racing offer maximum grip without compromising range and acoustics. The softer rubber tread on the outer and center sides provides extra grip when cornering and improved range. At the same time, a polyurethane insert provides acoustic insulation, reducing perceived noise levels by 20%.

Sporty interior

Inside, comfortable seats with racing ergonomics contribute to a pleasant seating position. The high-performance seats are composed of four different foams to provide optimal support for every part of the body. Their enveloping shape is designed to provide plenty of support when cornering. The higher density foam also provides high durability. More details will follow soon.
