On the brand-new Fiat 500 e

The Fiat 500 is an iconic model from the Italian brand. Unlike other famous nameplates that get a redesign with every generation, the 500 has kept its overall style with uncommonly lengthy lifecycles.

The all-new Fiat 500, only in electrical, features a variety of 320 km (WLTP variety) and a leading speed of 150 km/h. Unveiled in 2015, it retained the original design, however that does not mean Fiat designers were lazy. To have a new generation in an electrical platform without deviating from the original design is much more tough. Fiat had actually released a video showcasing the development of the new electric 500 through numerous stages in 2015.
