This is the stylish new contract hire Fiat 500X Hybrid which means the carmaker can now offer a low-emissions version for each of its models.

Fiat 500X Hybrid car lease range
The power for the new Fiat 500X Hybrid car lease range, and also for the Tipo Hybrid, comes from a new-generation 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and a 48-volt 15 kW motor.
The petrol unit produces 130 hp and torque of 240Nm and the power is delivered using a new seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission.
When starting up, drivers get to enjoy battery power alone for a silent and smooth driving experience, and the advanced hybrid technology will decide whether to use electric or petrol power once moving.
Fiat says the models are its first hybrids that will use electric power alone, with the system disconnecting the petrol engine.
