The 2017 Fiat 500e is an all electric version of the Fiat 500. The 500e is powered by an 83 kW electric motor and a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which take the car from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about nine seconds. On a 240V circuit, the 500e will charge from empty to full in about 4 hours. In an effort to reduce “range anxiety,” the Fiat 500e comes with 12 days of a rental car per year, for the first three years.  The 500e does not feature fast charging.

The 500e is now available in select markets. To sign up for more information on the Fiat 500e, visit

    I LOVE my 2013 500e, bought used in 2015:
    – Zero-60 is closer to 8 seconds than to the “9” listed above (8.4 at
    – A rental car for occasional roadtrips costs WAY less than the money you save on gas & oil changes

    There are 4 Fiat 500e’s in our family and extended family. They all realize that it is not a car to take on a vacation. I would like to lease one myself but living in the mountains I need an occasional 4 wheel drive. Hope Fiat gets into this into this type of drive soon. Would be a ideal vehicle to do local trips in Big Bear CA where you can’t drive faster than 40MPH and can’t go further than 30 miles both ways.

    I was wondering if when the EV charger 120Volts is still plugged into the car but the car is full ,does it still generate electricity because it is still plugged in ?

    1. Mariano Bruno says:

      Like your laptop, and other electronic things (even your desktop) the charger will still active an consume electricity. Some electronic devices will announce it as “standby power consumption”, normally it’s like nothing. On this charger will be the same case. Will consume almost no power. Like 1W or less.

    They haven’t offered the rental service since 2015 – my friend has a 2015, I have a 2016 … no rental service for me, which totally sucks as I’m always having to beg, borrow, or steal a vehicle when I need to go more than 40 miles one direction as there aren’t enough chargers that accommodate Fiats (but you can always find Tesla chargers!). I drove 38 miles to a winery a few weekends ago, figured, “Okay, 80 miles r/t, I’ll be good” – nope. Being that some parts of the highway had incline and I averaged 60 mph, I got to the winery with 28 miles left! I left with 88 miles. I hoped I could coast and brake the 29 miles to a friends house with a Fiat charger just off that highway – but 1 mile short – 9 miles from my house, I pulled off and called AAA to be towed home because I did not want to completely run the battery out as we all know that can lead to the key getting stuck in the ignition and needing to be towed to Fiat, and my local dealership is a HOT MESS of awful customer service.

      Lol, you were driving on the limit range at 60mph? hahahah, well.. you should be more carefully if you are going to play on the limits. and always have a plan B, like borrow a 110v outlet during your stay on the winery. (its like 3 hours / 10 miles). Or simply buy a car with more range, like the egolf with 125 miles per charge and its even cheaper 🙂

    We leased a 2016 500e. The car is fun to drive. Range can depend very highly on how one drives! Lead foot and late braking folks will see range in the 70-85 range, while careful acceleration, coasting and early gentle braking will give you a range between 85-100 miles.

    I have two issues though. The app Fiat that is available ios and android are not maintained anymore. Very minimal functionality offered. It also works very unreliably. The second issue is that the mpge shown in the scroll through menus, seems to account only for the mpge consumed by the electric motor. It may not account for the energy used for the cabin heating / cooling.

    We recently purchased a 2015 Fiat 500e and love this car! We average just over 100 miles of range in city driving and around 50 to 60 miles of highway range. We have owned this car for almost one month and the only thing we want to say is, Thank you Fiat for making this car! We love it!

      I love my 2017 FIAT 500E!! I commute and this little car is sturdy and absolutely love it!! I am a truck person but now with my job and all and traffic getting only worst in busy California!! I am going to buy one at the end of my least!!! It is sporty looking and not ugly like the Prius! I am a Toyota truck girl but not with their electric cars!

    I don’t t believe that Fiat offers the 12 days of free rental anymore since the 2016 model year came out. They claim Enterprise Rent-a -car pulled out of the program. ( I guess there are no other rental companies out there.
