First Reviews Of The 2021 Fiat 500e Are In – Is It The Go-To Electric Small Hatchback?


Fiat has revised the 500 for 2021, making it bigger, more stylish and, more importantly, all-electric.

Looking like an evolution of its predecessor, the zero-emission small hatchback starts at just under £23,000 ($30,765) in the UK, excluding the £3,000 ($4,013) car grant for the version equipped with the 24 kWh battery that powers a 94 PS (93 HP / 70 kW) motor.

This model takes 9.5 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill, has a 135 km/h (84 mph) top speed, and can travel for 185 km (115 miles) on a single charge on the WLTP cycle. Fiat also offers a 42 kWh battery option with a 120 PS (118 HP / 87 kW) electric motor which shaves half a second from the acceleration time and has a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph) as well as a 299-320-km (186-199-mile) range.
