Fiat’s next-generation 500 city car will be fully electric, with a range of 200 miles

The new FIat 500 full electric is set to arrive in the UK next year, 2021 and has been re-designed from the ground up.

With a 42kWh battery pack – that is integrated into the car’s floor – and an 85kW onboard fast charger, Fiat says the car can achieve an 80% charge in only 35 minutes and enough power to travel 30 miles in just five minutes.

The new Fiat 500 has three distinct driving modes that alter the car’s behaviour:

  • Normal Mode - is said to provide a similar driving experience to a conventional petrol Fiat 500;
  • Range Mode - enables one-pedal driving by activating the regeneration system;
  • Sherpa Mode - puts the car into a super-efficient mode with limited acceleration and a 50mph top speed, also the car’s sat-nav will analyse the route and adjust it to include any necessary charging stops.

The new 500 is the first FCA vehicle to feature the company’s new Uconnect 5 infotainment system that is operated via a 10.25-inch touchscreen, offering connected services and an all-new user interface.

Driver assistance systems are available across the range and include adaptive cruise control blind-spot monitor and lane keep assist.

Externally, the car has an all-new body that is longer and wider than before. The 500’s wheelbase has

been increased to improve passenger comfort and give the car greater stability.

Whilst the styling reflects that of the previous car, it features retro touches that mirror the original 500.

Inside, the interior has been lifted with higher levels of comfort and technology.
