Fiat has relaunched and reinvented the iconic Fiat 500 city car as an all electric car, with no combustion versions going to be available. Fiat has already announced the convertible version as well as the pricing back in March, but now the hatchback version has now been revealed.
The convertible version costs from £29,000 and the hatchback is from £26,995, after the government grant. Both cars have a 42kWh battery which gives it enough range for 199 miles. Fast charging is supported at 85kW, which will give the car 80% charge in 35 minutes. The 500e has a larger battery than the VW e-up and the Skoda Mii Electric which both have 32.3kWH battery packs in similar sized cars, an increase by 33%.
It must be said the £29,000 starting price of the convertible and the £26,995 price of the hatch is for the launch edition spec, the ‘La Prima’. Fiat will be launching lower spec cars later on. The high spec model has an all glass roof, LED headlights and 17-inch diamond cut alloys wheels. On the inside, Fiat has gone for an animal friendly leather material on the dash and seats.
Both the 500e hatchback and convertible are available to order now.
