Zagame Fiat is pleased to introduce the Fiat 500e – the first full-electric model in Fiat history and 100% designed, engineered and manufactured in Turin, Italy.

Totally new but unmistakably Fiat 500, the Fiat 500e is a clear evolution of the original 1957 Fiat 500, incorporating quintessential design cues and pairing them with an extraordinary electric experience.

Head-turning Italian design, fun-to-drive features and new safety inclusions have made the new Fiat 500e the most awarded Fiat model in history with the vehicle achieving 39 awards since it’s European launch, notably Best Small Electric Car for the city by What Car? Best Small Car and Car of the Year at the Electrifying Awards, and Best Car at the Marie Claire Sustainability Awards.

The Fiat 500e is one of the most environmentally friendly cars on the market, scoring a maximum five-star rating from the Green New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) and it was the first vehicle in history to achieve a maximum score of 10/10 in Energy Efficiency Index.

The Fiat 500e is equipped with a front-mounted electric motor outputting 87kW and has a peak torque output of 220Nm, enough to push the new 500 from 0-100km/h in 9.0 seconds and supports three charging modes. A DC fast charging rate of 85kW is offered as standard with a 0-80% charge capable in 35 minutes. 

Fully equipped with an array of features the Fiat 500e offers a driving ease in the urban environment and includes an all-new braking system, Adaptive Cruise Control (iACC), Lane Centring (LC), rear-view parking camera and blind spot monitor.

The full EV nature of the new Fiat 500e is clearly identified by the logo on the liftgate, carrying also a distinctive light blue accent colour. The new 500 logo has been designed to introduce the “e” into the well-known 500 logo. The same logo is also visible in the side at the back end of the daylight opening moulding.

The inside of the Fiat 500e has been just as thoughtfully designed as it’s outside with great focus on the quality of fit and finish. Occupants will immediately recognise a contemporary interpretation of the timeless style reflected by some unique design cues, including the classic Fiat dashboard insert, the two-spoke steering wheel and the rounded cluster make a clear connection with the 1957 original 500

An unmistakable 500 glass roof comes standard with the Fiat 500e and fills the interior with light, creating a bright and welcoming ambiance. The vehicle is also equipped with a retractile curtain, in order to share the interior ambient when the sunrays are too intrusive.

Bridging the new era is a touchscreen infotainment system, with a 10.25” tablet combined with a 7” TFT full digital cluster which provides intuitive information with a seamless experience. The huge 10.25” tablet becomes the unsurpassed protagonist of the dashboard area. Paying homage to the birthplace of the Fiat 500e the new wireless charging pad, conveniently positioned under the 10.25” infotainment system, features the Turin skyline.
