2013 FIAT 500e Battery Electric 2dr Hatchback (electric DD)


We bought the car rather than lease it and overall we are very happy with it.
The rear seats are very usable except for tall people but we use normally keep the rear seats down.

Very zippy; excellent acceleration, specially 0 to 50.
I regularly get over 85 highway miles from each charge but YMMV: less if you have the A/C on, more in the city or if you drive less aggressively than me

I've driven the gas 500 (not the abarth) and the 500e is significantly more fun than it.

We had to deal with the half-shaft recall and some additional teething problems but the fundamentals (electric engine, inverter, battery) all look very good.

The car deserves the awards it has received recently.

Best Features

Instant torque. Comfy seats. Good handling. External and internal design.

Worst Features

A 150+ range. Steering wheel with reach adjustability (already has tilting). Support for the new SAE Combo Fast Charging standard. Work with other car companies to make more chargers available around the country.
