Fiat has set their footprints long before in the EV industry. Being the pre-eminent ones, they have a clear vision regarding their subsequent and contemporary projects. The Fiat 500 electric, which is a compact and stylish European electric car can be defined as the company’s entry to the EV world. They have brought up quite a lot of changes in the modern Fiat 500e. The new 500 looks largely the same as the previous version, with styling inspired by the original Fiat 500 of 1957.
The three-door model, which has small dimensions with length 3.55 m, width 1.63 m, and height 1.49 m, as well as a small turning circle of 9.2 m, make the car light and comfortable, fast, and maneuverable. The New 500 is slightly bigger than the gasoline-engine car currently on sale. The main innovations are at the forefront. Highlight for the new front grille where the logo was replaced by the 500 and the headlights were renewed. Daytime driving lights were also added to the vehicle accentuations. Because it’s so small, it’s easy to park, even in spaces that would be too tight for a full-size car.
