The icon that is Fiat never stands still.
Now, performance has a new power – The new Abarth 500e Scorpionissima.
The new Abarth 500e Scorpionissima is a limited edition that combines style, electric power, and a powerful new sound.
1949 units with exclusive graphics and a numbered certificate of authenticity, the new Scorpion turns energy into emotions, high technology into adrenaline and, sustainability into performance.
The new Scorpion signature is not “just a signature”. Rather, it is the union of performance with innovation, of fun with sustainability. It’s the proof that Fiat can leave its mark on history, as they have done since 1949.
Prior to its debut back in November, the full electric New Abarth 500e is “More Abarth than EVer”, setting pulses racing as it electrifies Europe with a tour seeing it through Italy, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Portugal, and Spain. Next stops include Austria, France, and Switzerland. This journey has seen it capture the hearts of over 400,000 people and there are still 5,000 kms left to go.
Setting a new benchmark with its electric architecture, improved weight distribution, improved torque and wider wheelbase, the success of the New Abarth 500e has been confirmed with over 1,500 Scorpionissima launch editions being pre-booked online with only a few hundred still available. A very fitting reward for a car which represents one of the most exciting launches in the history of the brand and a great new addition to its line-up.
With best-in-class acceleration, zero emissions, a fun driving experience, quick recharge, and distinctly Italian design both in the interior and exterior, this Scorpion lets you drive by your own rules with an added sting in the tail.
The exclusive drive modes Turismo, Scorpion Street and Scorpion Track, suit your driving style, giving you total freedom to fully enhance the sporty set-up and unleash the power of your Abarth in every challenge on the road for a unique fun to drive experience.
With new sporty seat design, enriched with an embossed scorpion in Alcantara, a premium racing-derived material that gives a dark sporty look and the highest comfort thanks to the integrated headrest, obviously with a scorpion lasered on it, each 500e Scorpion really does have its own throne.
Let yourself be won over by the new sound generator, which evokes the classic Abarth roar making it even more powerful and iconic. You can choose to turn it on or off whenever you want, but with this innovative sound system, fun- to- drive is always on.
The European tour comes after the reveal of the New Abarth 500e to 150,000 members of the public at the Milan Games Week & Cartoomics, the most important Italian event dedicated to video games, e-sports and the world of comics. By participating in this event, the Scorpion brand consolidated its connection with the gaming world, as highlighted by the various initiatives launched in recent years, like the e-sport team.
The electric Scorpion then travelled across Europe including the Brussels Motor Show, held every two years in the city of Brussels, which saw more than 270,000 visitors over the course of nine days. In addition, Abarth announced its local ambassador in Spain, Marc Gene, one of the most successful drivers in Spanish motorsports, winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Formula 1 professional with a career spanning more than two decades.
