Fiat's designers attempt to echo cute lines of 1980s Panda.

Fiat reveals the first pictures of the new Grande Panda billed as a compact family mover targeting global B-segment markets.

The vehicle echoes the design of the Panda of the 1980s that became something of an icon for cute-looking yet practical family transport. It’s the first model of the new global lineup based on Stellantis’ multi-energy STLA Smart platform, as the Fiat brand starts its transition from local-based production to a global offering using a common platform. The automaker plans to add a new model to its lineup every year until 2027.

The Grande Panda will see first deliveries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and will be available in both battery-electric and hybrid powertrain versions. A compact vehicle, the vehicle’s length is pegged to just a smidgen over 13 ft. (4 m) and yet boasts seating for five people.

Olivier Francois, Fiat CEO and Stellantis Global CMO, says: “The best way to celebrate Fiat's 125 years is to start writing the first pages of our future, starting with the new Grande Panda. Designed in Turin, Italy by our Centro Stile, Fiat’s new creation embodies its forerunner’s values. This compact car is based on a global platform, giving the Brand the opportunity to expand its global reach.”
