The all-electric Fiat 500 has picked up from where it left off in 2022, gaining further recognition amongst industry experts. For a second year in a row, all-electric 500 has picked up Best Small Electric Car for the City and Best Convertible for Value at the 2023 What Car? Awards.
When awarding the all-electric 500 with Best Small Electric Car, judges praised its design and driving capabilities.
Steve Huntingford, Editor at What Car? said: "The instant response from the Fiat 500's 117bhp motor helps you nip in and out of traffic with ease, while the car’s tiny dimensions and light steering make it great for urban manoeuvres and squeezing into tight spaces. We're also big fans of the smart, modern interior and the relatively high driving position, with the latter boosting visibility."
Damien Dally, Managing Director Fiat and Abarth, said: “2022 was an incredible year for all-electric 500, having achieved so many accolades from industry experts.
“It’s very promising to see our first fully-electric car kick off the year in style and equally rewarding that we have been able to retain the title of Best Small Electric Car for the City and best Convertible for Value at the prestigious What Car? Awards.”
The all-electric Fiat 500 is the first fully-electric Fiat designed from the ground up. The car provides a raft of best-in-class features such as Level 2 Autonomous Driving technologies, a variety of battery options and a substantial driving range of up to 199 miles (WLTP) – the longest range of any electric city car on the market today.
To put the all-electric 500 even further at the forefront of customers’ minds, the car boasts 85kW fast charging, enabling the battery to reach 80 per cent range in just 30 minutes and, more impressively, 30 miles in around five minutes.
Additionally, courtesy of the fully-electric nature of the car, all-electric 500 is congestion charge and ULEZ-exempt, making it the perfect vehicle for the city.
The all-electric 500 convertible is also the only 4-seater convertible in its segment.
