The Fiat 600, the electric SUV successor to the Fiat 500X, has been spied undisguised during a film shoot in Italy.

    In images shared on Instagram account cochespias, we can see the Fiat 600 being followed by a film crew on Italian streets. Another image of a different vehicle was shared by Italian site Tiscali.

    While the model has been previously spied in camouflage wrap, these images show the styling of the vehicle which appears to be production-ready.

    The ‘600’ logo adorning the front, and the custom licence plate, confirm that the model will drop the 500X to adopt the 600 badge.

    Styling up front is similar to the smaller 500e. There’s a circular area in which the lights themselves sit in the bottom half, with the LED daytime running lights running along the bottom edge of the circle.

    The interior was spied previously and appears to feature a large, circular instrument cluster reminiscent of a Mini, as well as a rectangular, tablet-style touch screen sitting atop the centre stack.

    The SUV is expected to be underpinned by the CMP/e-CMP platform, with similar technical specifications to the Jeep Avenger and other small Stellantis small crossovers like the Citroen C4 and Peugeot 2008.

    Petrol-powered and hybrid powertrains are also supported by the CMP/e-CMP architecture and may be introduced in key markets.

    The related Avenger, for example, offers a petrol engine only in a handful of European markets like Spain.

    Like the Avenger, it’s expected power will come from a 115kW/260Nm electric motor and a 54kWh nickel manganese cobalt lithium-ion battery to provide a range of about 400 km.

    We can expect to learn more about the technical specifications of the model in the coming months, which is expected to debut later this year for the 2024 model year.

    The 600 is expected to enter production at Stellantis’ plant in Tychy, Poland alongside the Avenger and an upcoming entry-level Alfa Romeo crossover.

    While the Fiat 500X is still offered in markets like Europe and the US, it was axed locally in 2021 as the brand “refocused towards consumer preferences”.

    Fiat now sells only the ageing 500 city car and large Ducato van. However, the local lineup will gain the electric 500e mid-year.

    The Italian brand is focusing on its electric expansion, confirming earlier this year that it will reveal two new electric vehicles (EVs) this year, possibly under the Panda and Punto nameplates.
