Fiat 500E rocks!
By bbergholdt on
2013 FIAT 500e 2dr Hatchback (electric DD)
Just leased this. Really impressed with fit, finish and fun to drive performance! Easy to exceed rated MPGe. With sweet lease deal, total cost of car is less than I was spending on gasoline alone, each month. Range is OK, better than others except Tesla and Volt. Getting by with included slooow 120V charge device, others may desire $800 optional fast charger. Costs $1 per day for electricity to drive 40 miles, previous vehicle was $10 per day for gas. Very impressive car, hope future models offer extended range and lower cost batteries. My SUV will last forever, now parked except when needed!
Loaded features, hard to pick one-- Bluetooth phone, heated seats, Sat radio...
Yikes! Slams itself into park if you turn off key while still rolling slowly--- this is a recall/safety problem for sure!
Tires noisy, can't help it-- super quiet and it's all you hear! A bit rough riding, but the wheelbase is only a bit longer than my dog...
