FCA: 500 X hybrid and two Alfa Romeo and Maserati SUVs on the way
FCA confirms its industrial plan which envisages the introduction of new models in the vehicle range. The cars will be distributed between 2020 and 2021 and will involve the Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands. The 6.3 billion euro credit line provided by the government will allow a vast renovation of the production plants that the group manages in Italy.

500 X hybrid and SUV for Alfa Romeo and Maserati

Among the novelties, the introduction of a hybrid variant for the 500X is confirmed. The car, however, will not use the 4xe structure as on the Jeep Renegade: therefore no plug-ins, but a simpler 48 Volt mild hybrid. The hypothesis is that the solution uses the new 1.3 Turbofly gasoline engine Firefly.

The hybrid unit will then be re-proposed on Renegade and Compass: all three models will be produced at the Melfi plant.

The Alfa Romeo Suv range will be expanded with a model belonging to the C segment, positioning itself under the Stelvio. Derived from the Tonale concept, it is not excluded that it takes up the style and the same denomination of the prototype presented in Geneva in 2019. At the debut, the car may be available with hybrid engines and plug-ins.

Maserati will undergo a decided step towards electrification starting from 15 July, when the hybrid Ghibli will be presented. The Levante hybrid is also expected to debut shortly. Both cars will be produced in Turin, the same fate lies with the replacement of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio: the two sports cars will also be available in a fully electric variant.

Not only that: the MC20 super sports car will also have a battery version. Finally, to try to improve the brand's sales, a segment D SUV will be produced which will go alongside Ghibli, representing access to Maserati's raised vehicle range.
