Fiat 500e – economy, Italian style

Fiat 500e – economy, Italian style | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

Fiat says EPA tests indicate that, when fully charged, the 500e has a best-in-class range of about 87 miles (140 km).
When Fiat puts its 2013 500e on sale in California, the Italian automaker says the subcompact electric vehicle (EV) will deliver the best fuel economy in the industry.
Using a formula developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the 500e gets a highway rating of 108 MPGe. That translates into the equivalent of 2.18 L/100km. MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) determines how many miles an EV can travel on battery-generated electricity that contains the same energy content as a gallon of gasoline.
The 500e’s EPA rating for city driving is even higher – 122 MPGe (1.93 L/100km).
Fiat says EPA tests indicate that, when fully charged, the 500e has a range of about 87 miles (140 km), which is better than any EV sold in North America produced by a high-volume manufacturer.
Helping the 500e achieve even greater fuel economy are eight efficiency-inspired exterior enhancements that contribute to a 13% improvement in aerodynamics.
“The Fiat brand is about unique Italian style, fuel efficiency and great value. Now we have taken a page from our own playbook to change the expectations of what an electric vehicle can be,” said Tim Kuniskis, head of Fiat North America.
The zero-emissions 500e has an electric powertrain that produces 111-horsepower. Fiat claims the battery can be recharged in less than four hours with its Level 2 (240 volt) on-board charging module.
The 500e is the latest vehicle in the ever-expanding Fiat 500 line-up, which also includes the 500 Abarth, 500 Abarth Cabrio and 500 Turbo. In 2013, Fiat will also introduce the larger 500L – an all-new five-passenger vehicle that will compete in the B segment.
