The Fiat 500e range, which consists of multiple trim levels (Action, Icon and La Prima), has previously been recognized as excellent value for money, stylish and with a fantastic real-world range. The car has three driving modes to choose from: Normal, Range and Sherpa, which are designed to support and enhance the driving experience and manage energy efficiency.

Mark Tisshaw, editor, Autocar said: “The 500 sets the stage for all small electric cars. Our roads don’t get any wider and the 500e’s size is just as useful on the streets of Turin as it is on an English country road. The battery in the floor has banned any top-heaviness, and the stiff suspension, pointed steering and impressive lateral grip give the response any avid driver wants.”

Tisshaw added: “The [Fiat 500e] is a competitive electric car. Where it really stands out is that it is truly joyful to look at and to drive. It’s recognizable, it’s retro yet modern, it’s cute and it’s distinctive.”

Greg Taylor, UK Managing Director for FIAT and Abarth, said: “At the end of February, the 500th took its 25th prize. Less than three months later, this award from Autocar marks the 30th accolade our first all-electric car has been awarded. This milestone pays tribute to the exceptional work of our designers and engineers who have made the 500e as impressive as it has been with our customers and industry experts.”
