The Fiat 500 e is so much fun it should illegal for anyone under 21. Really !! It has great comfort and performance with a Euro flare. And you can feel good about it having zero emissions. Seating space is appropriate and rear hatch storage is more than enough for shopping , errands or a couple of overnight bags when heading to the airport.

Fiat 500e - Pleasantly surprised

I leased a Fiat 500e really not knowing if this would be a great commute car but I've been pleasantly surprised. My daily commute is about 35 to 40 miles which means that I can take the full trip from home to the office in one single charge (range is about 87 miles). It also helps that the office has charging stations and a charge from 10% to 100% will take about 3 to 4 hours. So, now having clocked up over 5000 miles in 4 months I really enjoy the drive of the vehicle. The torque is also impressive especially from 30 to 50. Freeway driving does limit the range but the moment i'm off the freeway the (braking regenerating) will increase the range. Having the obtained the car pool lane stickers has also reduced my commute by 10-15 minutes. What you will find thats annoying is the general availability to charge the vehicle at different locations. These can be taken up (example at malls) which can be frustrating, so I would strongly recommend to use apps such at ChargePoint to plan ahead. This is not down to the vehicle, but it is the general issue with owning an electric vehicle. We also use the vehicle to do our grocery shopping at the weekend and although the space at the back is limited we have been able to place all our shopping in the back. At occasions, the ease of placing the back seat down has helped. I also like the App which allows me to start the air con 10-15 before I get back to the car but in general the App does need some updates to improve the functionality. Pros: 1. It is solidly built, quiet, and smooth. 2. Good technology, such as media player (USB option), Sirius FM, Navigation 3. Incentives, tax and rebates Cons: 1. App could be improved 2. Limited space in the back for 2 adults. 3. Small vehicle (this is felt in particular on freeways).

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
