Fiat 500e Returns to America: A Modern, Sustainable Take on a Classic

After a four-year hiatus, the Fiat 500 returns to American roads, this time in its electric form, the Fiat 500e. As Stellantis' first battery electric vehicle (BEV) offered in the US, this city car aims to captivate eco-conscious drivers with its peppy performance and zero-emission driving experience.

Fiat launches the electric-only 500e in the US, combining iconic design with sustainability

Powered by a 42 kWh battery pack, the Fiat 500e features a single electric motor delivering 118 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels. While its top speed of 94 mph may not thrill speed enthusiasts, the 500e proves to be an enthusiastic urban companion.

Weighing in at 2,952 lbs, it sprints from 0 to 60 mph in a respectable 8.5 seconds, making it an agile option for city commuting. With an EPA-estimated range of 149 miles, the Fiat 500e is ideally suited for city driving rather than long-distance journeys. However, it surpasses its closest rival, the Mini Cooper Electric Hardtop, which offers an official range of 114 miles. Recharging the 42 kWh battery takes approximately four hours and 15 minutes using an 11 kW Level 2 charger.

Moreover, a quick charge from an 85 kW DC fast charger provides 31 miles of range in a mere five minutes and reaches 80% charge in approximately 35 minutes. Offering three driving modes, including Normal, Range, and Sherpa, the Fiat 500e ensures drivers have options to suit their preferences. The vehicle also introduces one-pedal driving as standard, allowing owners to regenerate range while driving in stop-and-go traffic.

The Fiat 500e stands out with its timeless retro styling, signaling a nod to the original 1957 Fiat 500. The US models sport LED lighting, flush-fitting "e-latch" door handles, and 17-inch diamond-cut wheels, which enhance its charm and appeal. The initial launch brings the (RED) Edition, a special edition model partnered with the (RED) charity. Each sale of this edition contributes towards supporting global charitable causes.

Inside the Fiat 500e, modernity meets nostalgia with a two-spoke steering wheel and a rounded instrument cluster reminiscent of the original model. The car offers a generous 10.25-inch center screen equipped with Uconnect 5, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a built-in virtual assistant. Safety features include Lane Keep Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Pedestrian Alert.

Priced at $32,500 for the (RED) Edition (excluding the $1,595 destination fee), the Fiat 500e debuts as a premium option in the market. However, Fiat aims to introduce more affordable models with prices under $30,000 in the future. The Fiat 500e is set to hit dealerships in the first quarter of 2024, offering drivers a modern, sustainable, and joyful driving experience that stays true to its roots. As Fiat states, "Try not to smile when you drive this car."
