To begin with, we will tell you that the Fiat 500 is classified as a city car, designed by the Italian manufacturer Fiat since 2007. Currently, the car is also produced in Mexico by Chrysler Group LLC. The traditional version has a petrol powered engine and comes either in a three-door hatchback body style, or in a three-door cabriolet body style. As for the electric version, you should know that Chrysler introduced it to the public about three years ago, once with the 2010 North American International Auto Show. The car is produced and commercialized under the name of Fiat 500e and the first units are scheduled for delivery this year, in July.

The 2013 Fiat 500E EV represents a full-electric car which is powered by a three-phase AC synchronous motor, which produces up to 111 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque, and a 24 kWh liquid-cooled (heated) li-ion battery. If you look to find out more about the time this car takes to charge its battery, you should know that about four hours are required (with the level 2 – 240 volt -, on board charging mode), when refilling battery. Another important thing you need to know is that this electric car has a top speed of 75 miles per hour (120 kilometers per hour).

The 500E comes with many improvements and reworked parts which Fiat 500 owners can easily track. The major difference between the electric version and the traditional model stands in the instrumental panel the 500E gets, which is a full-color display, showing speed, range, battery level etc. The platform this car incorporates is the same one that the manufacturer put in the European Ford Ka and Fiat Panda. This car is said to compete with other full-electric cars like Nissan Leaf and the traditional petrol powered Fiat 500. Last but not least, we should mention that the 2013 Fiat 500E EV can be purchased for a price starting at $ 29, 650.
