Are you ready for fun? The small car sector is about to get an electric shock with the arrival of the new Abarth 500e. Created by Fiat’s sporting sub-brand, the Abarth 500e is the first all-electric 500 to wear the famous scorpion badge and adds a high performance option to the award-winning 500 range.
The Abarth 500e will be available in both hatch and cabrio forms with both models featuring a host of additional features. The first model to arrive will be a Limited Edition Scorpionissima, which will be followed by a standard Abarth version. Just 1,949 examples will be made – a number that pays homage to the brand’s birth year.
The Abarth 500e comes with a 42kWh battery – which is the same size as the pack fitted to the normal 500. But don’t be fooled – it’s not exactly the same battery. In order to deliver 155bhp to the wheels, Abarth had to create a new specification that allows for a bigger transfer of energy.
As for range, well, there are no official figures at the time of recording. But given that the standard Fiat version returns 199 miles on the WLTP cycle, we’d expect the Abarth to be around the 160 or 170 mile mark.
Join Nicki as she takes a look around the Abarth 500e ahead of its arrival at UK retailers. Do you like the look of it? As always, we’d love to hear your views and opinions in the comments below.
