New Fiat 500

by Lorna Oakley

This iconic Italian car has had a modern day makeover and Fiat have introduced a slightly quieter taste of La Dolce Vita to the UK with the all new Fiat 500. The brand have just introduced the latest electric version of Fiat 500, a car that has been inspiring change since 1957 and it’s now ready to take you into the next decade.

So, what makes the all electric Fiat 500 different? Quoted as the next level city car it is the first to bring level 2 autonomous driving to a small car, with clever technology and up to 199 mile range on one charge. It’s been long anticipated and already well received by the motoring community, the incredible aesthetics do not let the heritage down. If anything, the attention to detail is a compliment to the birthplace of this stylish car.

It’s looks speak louder than its engine sounds, with the loveliest details, from the Fiat branded stitching in the vegan leather seats to the monogrammed retractable roof. Style joins comfort to offer an exclusive driving experience. All details are inspired by nature, like the seats made with Seaqual® fabric, containing plastic recycled from the sea, and designed to amplify the spaciousness of the interior. Also with the new front armrest and smartphone holder that has wireless charging everything will find its place.

Think advanced technology and infotainment with a 10.25’’ Radio, NAV and a stylish wearable key with a pebble-shaped cover, driving is a joy. The automatic gearbox allows you to accelerate and brake with the ebb and flow of traffic with ease. With a spritely acceleration that feels a lot sharper than the 9.0 sec 0-62mph time suggests, it never feels remotely underpowered even if you ask for a burst of power when overtaking. It’s super-light steering and a tight turning circle makes it joyously easy to drive through town or around awkward multi-storey car parks. 

You can charge the Fiat 500 electric both at home and at thousands of public charging points across the UK, assisted by the My Easy Charge that allows you to search and use public charging points.

From Turin to Chelsea…. Italian style on four wheels has landed in the UK with the all new Fiat 500 electric.
