Fiat 500 Hybrid and Fiat Panda Hybrid - how the new models drive
"Electrified vehicles require a rethink. The new Fiat 500 Hybrid and the new Fiat Panda Hybrid also react differently in certain situations than cars powered solely by a conventional combustion engine. Moreover, the full savings potential of mild hybrid technology can only be realized if it is supported by simple actions on the part of the driver. The short film illustrates how the technology works, which is largely identical in the Fiat 500 Hybrid and Fiat Panda Hybrid. Both models are so-called MHEV (Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle) vehicles and do not require external charging. Fiat 500 Hybrid and Fiat Panda Hybrid are therefore ideal for customers who do not have access to a charging station at home or at work but still want to benefit from the environmental and cost advantages. The internal combustion engine used in Fiat 500 Hybrid and Fiat Panda Hybrid is a three-cylinder gasoline engine that generates 51 kW (70 hp) from one liter of displacement. It is combined with a belt-driven starter-generator (RSG), which is connected to the crankshaft via a belt system and, depending on the situation, supports the combustion engine or acts as a power generator to charge an additional battery. In the Fiat 500 Hybrid, an animation in the central instrument cluster provides information about the energy flow between the belt-driven starter generator and the battery. A second graphic shows the relationship between charging and power extraction. When starting from a standstill and accelerating, the belt-driven starter-generator supports the gasoline engine with up to 3.6 kW of power. The RSG, which then operates as an electric motor, draws the necessary power from an additional lithium-ion battery (12 volts, 11 Ah). It is mounted under the driver's seat in the Fiat 500 Hybrid and behind the rear seat bench in the Fiat Panda Hybrid."
