What was in announcements, now became a reality — the electric “charged” hatchback Abarth 500e, built on the basis of the new generation FIAT 500e, debuted. As required by the rules of the genre, the new “hot” version is distinguished by changed bumpers, large wheels, and notable stickers.

But the main changes are hidden inside: an electric motor with a maximum power of about 114 kW or 155 “horses” (torque 235 N•m), which provides acceleration from 0-100 km/h in about 7 seconds. It is interesting that with Turismo settings, the engine output is slightly reduced (100 kW and 220 N•m), and only in specific Scorpion modes (Street or Track) can you get the maximum. And it is also interesting that the new electric car Abarth 500e supports 85-kilowatt charging, which allows you to add 40 km of mileage in just five minutes of charging. However, the manufacturer does not announce the full range on one battery charge of 42 kWh.

Of course, the interior has changed: sports seats and steering wheel, the use of Alcantara, the original 7-inch instrument panel. The latter received its own graphics, which display the speed of movement, battery charge, information on the traveled route, selected movement settings.

Finally, it is worth noting that the debut of the Abarth 500e begins with the limited Scorpionissima version, which is distinguished by the maximum equipment. Such an electric car will be produced in the number of only 1,949 copies — in honor of the brand’s year of birth. Symbolic!
