The Italian carmaker FIAT has recently released an electric version of the popular 500 models, called 500e. The fresh addition comes with a 120 hp under its bonnet, an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 9 seconds and a top speed of 150 km/h.

The 500e can run on electricity for 320 km, thanks to its high-capacity battery. Once depleted, it can be plugged into any house’s electric system to recharge. If done, it will need approximately 14 hours until it is fully charged. When plugged into a specially-developed charging station, FIAT 500e will reach about 80% of its charge in a matter of 35 minutes.

The elegant Italian vehicle comes with three different driving modes: Normal, Range and Sherpa. Each one of those modes unveils a different side of the dynamic nature of the FIAT. Though compact, 500e has impressive dimensions, which signify the comfort and space the car’s ability to offer its occupants.

The hatchback comes with 3,63 m of length, 1,69 m of width and a height of 1,48 m. The brand new exterior shins out thanks to the implemented LED lights, chrome details, and sleek 17-in wheels. The cozy interior comes with comfortable and ergonomic seats, dressed in eco-leather. An upgraded infotainment system has also found its place inside the new 500e.

It is accompanied by a fully-digitalized high-resolution screen and a 10,25-in sensor display through which a variety of functionalities of the FIAT can be operated. The latter is an essential part of the updated Uconnect5 multimedia system – an integrated part of FIAT’s cars.

Like many other modern cars, the new 500e comes with a long list of driver-assisted systems. The most notable among them are the Emergency Brake, BLIS, Lane-keeping assistant, and adaptive cruise control.
