The Fiat 600e is a cute, compact family crossover – the all-electric successor to the 500X and a more spacious big brother for the 500e. It shares most of its hardware and powertrain with the Jeep Avenger, is well equipped and competitively priced. We also love that it’s genuinely quite small; it’s in between a VW Polo and VW Golf in length.

The Fiat 600e is a compact family car that, at 4.17m long and 1.78m wide (without the wing mirrors) is a bit bigger than a traditional supermini and a bit smaller than a traditional mid-size family car. It’s more of a high-riding hatchback than an SUV, which means it’s designed to offer the best of both worlds as a conveniently urban-appropriate parking ninja, and a practical grown-up car for the longer motorway trips.

It looks cute, too. The styling cues from the electric 500 are unmistakable, and that’s no bad thing as the 500e is one of the best-looking cars out there, to our eyes. For the 600e the proportions are stretched and there’s chunkier finishes all round, with contrasting chequer-finish surrounds to the rear lights and – on the top-spec La Prima – also on the wheels. La Prima also gets the contrasting black body kit and chrome badging for additional premium SUV-ish appeal.

The Fiat 600e has a 54kWh lithium-ion battery, with a usable capacity (the amount that you’re actually charging and discharging) of 51kWh. That’s good for a range of up to 254 miles in the cheaper 600e (RED) model, or 252 miles in the La Prima, and in our summer test drive through a variety of faster country roads and slow town stuff, we managed a real-world figure of 220 miles, which is only a fraction less than you get in an MG4 Long Range or VW ID.3.

Join Nicki as she takes the new Fiat 600e out for the first time. Does it still have the magic of its smaller sibling? Should it be on your shortlist? Let us know in the comments below.
