Had a quick look at Fiat Hybrid system, they're calling it a 'Mild' system.


It appears to have a small motor and battery that aids acceleration and Stop/Start technology. It doesn't seem like you can use the car in EV mode, its just the electric motor adds a bit of clean power when you accelerate and so reduces emissions. Fiat claim it reduces by 20% thats probably an 'Ideal' figure and real world figure might be less.


If the 500X has the same mild hybrid system as the Panda then it looks to me to be a gimmick really and not particulary green.
