The New Abarth 500e was announced on 22/11/22 so here is everything we know about the very first electric Abarth that will be open for purchase in early 2023.
Significant Features and Cost of the Abarth 500e
The 500e is equipped with a powerful 42 kWh battery coupled with a powerful e-motor,
resulting in 113.7kW/155PS and combining the performance of the Scorpion with the innovation of
electric mobility. It can reach 62mph from zero in just seven seconds. It boasts of best-in-class acceleration and ensures zero emissions while driving.
How it will Feel to Drive the Abarth 500e
The 500e is the most responsive and exciting Abarth in urban driving and the most
enjoyable in suburban driving. In short, it is more Abarth than ever. The electric architecture performs
better than petrol thanks to improved weight distribution, better torque and wider wheelbase.
Electric is the perfect technology to improve driving pleasure and ensure more sprint, greater
balance, more stability and better road holding.
In a nutshell, for Abarth, electrification means being more fun as well as being more competitive. If you look at it from another angle, electrification not only means looking for greener solutions but is also synonymous with pure, distilled, and hardcore fun. The more responsive electric motor, longer wheelbase, widened track widths and better balance between the axles offer great handling and driving dynamics. This provides the 500e with a quicker response, better corner entry and a higher cornering and exit speed.
Finally, the New Abarth 500e is the first and only city car that can be equipped with the Sound
Generator for those who don’t want to give up on Abarth’s signature “roar”. The Sound Generator accompanies the engine performance and faithfully reproduces the sound of an Abarth petrol engine. Designed to offer all the emotions that every Abarth driver seeks the 500e perfectly combines performance and sound, this innovative sound system gives a true Abarth driving experience.
