All-Electric Fiat 500e Coming to California This Summer

2013 Fiat 500eFor Californians, there will soon to be another option for buying an affordable and efficient electric car, as Fiat has announced the availability of their all-electric Fiat 500e by this summer.

According to Fiat, this little EV will be listed for about $32,500 USD when it comes available, and for state residents that qualify for rebates from Fiat and federal and state incentives, the cost could be as low as $20,500.

The 500e is a four-seater rated at 115 MPGe, with an estimated 87 mile range, which is decent for a city or urban commuter car, but not quite long enough for serious interstate driving.

However, Fiat dealers will have four charging stations available for use at each location, and the in-car navigation system can locate nearby charging stations for drivers.

The Fiat 500e also comes with its own smartphone app (iPhone and Android) that tracks energy use, manages the charging system, and delivers real-time status updates on the vehicle, as well as route and charging station mapping.

For those who don’t want to take the plunge of purchasing the 500e, a lease option makes them available for about $200 per month (for 36 months), which is comparable with the company’s gas model 500. And for those who might want a bit more reassurance that the vehicle will fit their needs, Fiat has a program that provides buyers of the 500e (and those who lease them) with up to 12 days of alternative transportation each year. The Fiat 500e Pass program partners with Enterprise Holdings to give customers access to other vehicles, including the gas model of the 500, with unlimited mileage.
