Radical new Fiat Panda EV to arrive in 2025 from less than £22,000


It’s some 0.3m longer than the previous Panda, at 3.99m, but that’s still “below the 4.06m segment average”, claims Fiat.

The five-seat cabin is as funky and vibrant as its exterior, with a colourful 10.25in infotainment screen and 10in instrument display enclosed in a Lingotto-inspired design.

Ovals are the prevailing theme, in a nod to the 1920s building’s famous rooftop test track, and efforts to reduce the weight and cost of various elements will lend an airier, more spacious feel.

Although minimalistic in its design, Fiat says it is “perfect for comfortable family living and contemporary urban mobility”.

After the Grande Panda, Fiat will expand the Panda family with a new derivative every year until 2027. This will begin with the Dacia Duster rivalling SUV and Ford Puma-sized Fastback, both of which Fiat has confirmed it is readying for production.

Importantly, the Panda family will be distinct from the rest of Fiat’s portfolio, which has the 1950s-inspired 500 at its heart, although the brand hasn’t indicated plans for any additions to that family beyond the 600 crossover and the hot Abarth versions of each.

Fiat expects to begin UK deliveries early next year, and while it’s quiet on pricing, the Grande Panda is expected to be one of the most affordable cars on sale, starting at around £15,000 in petrol form and about £22,000 as an EV.
