All-New Electric Fiat 500: Full Spec and Pricing Revealed
Italian firm, Fiat, has released full specification and pricing details for the all-new electric Fiat 500. With prices starting from £19,995 (including the Plug-in Car Grant), this fully electric city car will be available to order in the UK from December 2020. We expect the all-electric Fiat 500 to be strong competition for the MINI electric and Peugeot e-208 when it hits UK forecourts, with deliveries expected from March 2021.
Electric Fiat 500 Specifications
The base model for the electric Fiat 500 is called the 500 ‘Action’ and prices will start from £19,995. This model comes with a 24kWh battery that offers a 115-miles range. As the base model, the Fiat 500 Action is only available as a hatchback. Whereas, the mid-range Fiat 500 Passion is available as a hatchback or a convertible. Also, this excellent model contains a bigger 42kWh battery and has a longer charging range of 199 miles. Fast charging via an 85kW charger means the Fiat 500 Passion can be charged to 80% capacity in just 35 minutes.
Alternatively, you might prefer the high spec Icon model which features a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, keyless entry and a smarter interior. Also available in a hatchback and convertible version, this model is priced from £24,995.
At the top of the range, the La Prima version comes with larger 17-inch alloy wheels, leather seats and a panoramic glass roof for the hatchback models. Excellent safety features include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and a surround-view camera system.
We think Fiat has done a fantastic job of maintaining the iconic style of the original 1957 model. It's instantly recognisable due to its shape and side arrows. However, the electric Fiat 500 has a modern, renewed look which will appeal to potential EV drivers. Overall, only small tweaks have been made to the styling but we particularly like the less cluttered dashboard on the inside. Also, the new electric model is slightly bigger in size than the current Fiat 500.
Exciting news! The electric Fiat 500 takes city car to a whole new level! This will be the first small car with Level 2 Autonomous Driving available. As your trusted co-driver, this city car can accelerate, brake, as well as stay within the lane autonomously. This offers drivers the ultimate driving experience and shows a modern twist to this iconic Fiat model. Be prepared for city driving with this smooth looking, affordable electric car.
So, what do you think of the all-new electric Fiat 500? We cannot wait for this fantastic car to hit the roads! As the automotive industry continues to electrify, we expect this superb supermini to excel in the EV market.
