FIAT 500e crowned Best Electric Small Car | Vospers News



The all-electric FIAT 500e has received yet another ‘What Car? Award’. It is the third year the 500e has won Best Electric Small Car 2023.

Fiat 500e Winning Characteristics

The Fiat 500e’s distinctive and retro styling present on the exterior and interior of this awesome electric vehicle set it apart from other electric small cars. This coupled with the seamless integration of the latest technology continue to impress the judges representing ‘What Car?’. As well as this, ‘What Car?’ believe the ability of the 500e to incorporate entertaining driving dynamics while still retaining a city-friendly turning circle and nimble feel makes it worthy to be crowned with this award once again.

As well as the 500e’s aesthetic and practical features ‘What Car?’ have suggested that the price point also set it apart from its competitors. The entry level 24kWh model remains one of the most affordable fully-electric cars on sale. The longer range 42kWh model, which offers 199 miles of range (WLTP) and achieves 0-62mph in 9.0 seconds, also undercuts its rivals by a significant margin.

On top of that, FIAT launched its E-Grant earlier this year. The E-Grant is a £3,000 incentive to help people make the switch to electric; available for both the fully-electric 500e and 500e convertible. This shows Fiats dedication to help Britain make the switch to electric in the coming years.

What’s even more impressive is that the FIAT 500e is the first fully-electric model in the brand’s history! They clearly out a lot of thought into this vehicle as it boasts a range of best-in-class features including Level 2 Autonomous Driving technologies, fast charging capabilities and a driving range of up to 199 miles (WLTP). This being the furthest range of any electric city car on the market today.

A Word From ‘What Car?’

“The exterior design of the electric 500 manages to offer retro appeal while feeling utterly up to date. And likewise, the interior remains charming, yet features all of the kit buyers now expect. The 500 also has the sort of tight turning circle and nimble feel that make driving in town a joy. But the battery of our preferred version is big enough to ensure that you’re not limited to short journeys.” Steve Huntingford, Editor, What Car?
