Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular for many reasons, including their environmentally friendly features and cost-effectiveness. However, when it comes to the Fiat 500e, there's another reason why it stands out from the rest - it's an energy-efficient charmer that's sure to turn heads.
The Fiat 500e has been named the 'Best electric minicar' by the English car magazine "What Car?" for the second year. Editor-in-chief Steve Huntingford praised the 500e for its ability to easily tackle city traffic while still providing a thrilling driving experience. Its energy efficiency is also impressive, with a rating of 140 Wh/km to 149 Wh/km, depending on the version. This puts the Fiat 500e at the top of the most energy-efficient electric cars on the market.
But what does energy efficiency really mean, and why is it so important? According to electric car technician Christoffer Mathiasen, energy efficiency is the electric equivalent of km/l in conventional fuel engines. Essentially, the better the energy efficiency, the longer the range you can get out of your car, and the less money you'll spend per km driven. For the Fiat 500e, this translates to a cost of approximately 42 øre per km, based on an average electricity price of $0.43 per kWh.
In addition to its energy efficiency, the Fiat 500e also has a battery capacity of 42 kWh, providing a WLTP range of 298 to 321 km (depending on the variant). This means that even with factors such as driving style, speed, and weather affecting the range, the Fiat 500e is still a practical choice for many drivers.
But what about the price? The good news is that the 500e is an affordable option for those looking for an electric car. It can be privately leased for just $428 per month with a payment of $1,429 for a 36-month period and 10,000 km per year. And if you need an extra 5,000 km annually, it's possible for just $42/month. The Icon Pack equipment level also includes a variety of features, such as automatic air conditioning, a 10.25" touch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, rear camera, wireless charging, 16" alloy wheels, keyless start, and automatic emergency brake.
If you're looking for even more excitement, you can upgrade to the Fiat 500e Cab for just an extra $42 monthly. The possibilities are endless with the Fiat 500e, making it the perfect choice for anyone looking for an energy-efficient charmer that's sure to put a smile on their face.
