The 2015 Fiat 500e is mainly delivered because of the zero emission rules in California. Even this is the main reason for creation of this vehicle we can say that it offer quite great features, especially for those that will use this vehicle in city.
Power is delivered from the electric motor that is capable of producing 83 kW or 111 hp and 147 lb-ft of torque, this is more than enough for this small and pretty light vehicle. Electricity is stored in Lithium Ion battery pack of 24 kWh capacities and it is capable of delivering about 83 miles of range, this can go to more than 100 miles in pure city driving thankfully to its superb regenerative brake system. During this trip it will return 116 MPGe in city and 100 MPGe on highway.
Another thing that is different on this vehicle is the addition of the Eco button. When in this mode, you will be getting slower response from the engine for a few more miles. It will still offer decent performances but not like in the standard mode and only few additional miles will be available to driver. With further improvements to the aerodynamics and about 13 percent lower drag we have higher efficiency. About 140 hours of wind tunnel tests and we are getting many improvements.
2015 Fiat 500e Changes
Let’s take a look at the interior and features that it offers. We are getting modern and futuristic design that is combined with retro design language. Instrument cluster is consisted of 7 inch TFT display where all the most important details about car systems are delivered. Through this display you will be getting info about range, efficiency, speed, trip and much more. One of the things that certainly attracts a lot attention is the shifter. It is located in the central console and offers four buttons that allow you to choose P, R, N and D modes.
Immediately, as soon as we take a look at the exterior we can notice similarities with iconic look and proportions of previously available small models in Fiat lineup. For those that want to emphasize the aggressive looks of this vehicle will be able to choose e-Sport package. This way slightly more athletic character will be pronounced with only few small changes.
Aerodynamics is important but for Fiat it was also important to deliver vehicle that will clearly remind us on the Cinquecento. At the front end we have dot matrix fascia on the lower part of the front bumper and unique design of the rest. With the bi-halogen headlamps and familiar fog lamps it is quite easy to notice similarities between this modern vehicle and the iconic car that was delivered many years before. On top of this we are getting unique 15 inch wheel that further improve aerodynamics and style.
Release Date Of 2015 Fiat 500e
Since the changes for the 2015 Fiat 500e will be only minor, when compared to 2014th model, we do not expect to see much hype about the delivery of this vehicle. It is expected that mid-summer release will happen and that shortly after that we will be getting this car on the market. It will certainly come before the end of this year so we will not have to wait much longer for additional details about it.
