Fiat has announced that the new 2024 Fiat 500e, an all-electric model of their iconic city car, will be available for order in the United States beginning March 12th, 2024. The 500e starts at an MSRP of $32,500.
The electric 500e will offer an EPA-estimated range of 149 miles from its 42 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The battery can be charged from 0-80% in around 35 minutes using an 85 kW DC fast charger. With a home Level 2 charger, a full charge takes around 4 hours.
Fiat claims the new 500e will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds thanks to its electric motor producing 118 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. Despite the instant electric torque, Fiat has tuned the 500e to be exceptionally easy and intuitive to drive.
As the first battery-electric vehicle sold by Fiat in North America, the 500e brings classic Italian style and charm to the EV segment. Design details give homage to the original 1957 Fiat 500, while the interior features modern tech like a 10.25-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 5 infotainment.
The launch 2024 Fiat 500e will be offered initially as a limited (RED) Edition featuring unique red exterior styling details. Fiat states this special edition supports COVID-19 relief efforts. More versions of the 500e are planned over time.
With its March 12th debut fast approaching, the 2024 Fiat 500e is set to electrify America with its iconic European style and affordable price in an efficient, sustainable package. Fiat’s city car goes fully electric starting at just $32,500 before incentives.
