The electric Abarth 500 begins road tests, spy photos

L’Abarth 500 electric it seems to have entered the most intense phase of its development. After the announcement of the changeover of the brand to full electric by 2024 and the recent confirmations of the ceo Olivier François to Autocarnow is the time of spy photos.

Published on Facebook by Walter Vayr, the shots portray the very first prototype of the electric sports car.

It hides its qualities

The bodywork is without sporting excesses, but a sheet placed in the rear window does not leave much room for interpretation. The written “332 BEV ABARTH M 001”Would indicate the code name of the project (332) and the prototype number (M 001). For the moment, the model differs from the other 500 electric only by the presence of circles larger in size and tires with a slightly larger section.

In the definitive Abarth, however, we might find a new light design, one spoiler specific rear and a wider body. They shouldn’t be missing either stickers on the sides, while the passenger compartment will receive sports seats and specific instrumentation.

Exciting and engaging the fans

The electric Abarth 500 should be fitted with the same 42 kWh battery of the “normal” version, but the power could grow to at least 180-200 CV. According to recent rumors, in fact, the goal would be that of an acceleration 0-100 km / h around 7 secondson the same level as the Abarth with internal combustion engine.
