A few months after its official release, the new Abarth 500e electric car now reveals its range and prices. The electric sports car derived from the Fiat 500e is even eligible for the ecological bonus of 5,000 euros.
While manufacturers will no longer have the right to market thermal cars from 2035 in Europe, there are particular concerns about the future of certain sports divisions. This is particularly the case of Abarth, which has been producing hormone-fed versions of the Fiat 500 for several years. But now that it has become electric, the fate of the trainer was still uncertain until recently.
A complete range
Fortunately, we were quickly reassured, since the firm unveiled its Abarth 500e last November, a boosted version of the electric city car, the price of the “civilized” version of which was recently lowered. This highly anticipated new variant had already been seen before its reveal. In addition, it had been confirmed by the preparer, who asked for help from his fans to design his noise. The result is also quite impressive as we have seen in a file dedicated to the noise of electric cars.
At its launch, the small sports car had only been unveiled in its launch version called Scorpionissima and limited to just 1,949 copies. A tribute to the manufacturer’s date of birth. A declination obviously well equipped, including sports seats in Alcantara or the adaptive cruise control. All for a salty price, displayed from 43,000 euros in sedan version and 46,000 euros in a convertible.
Suffice to say that not everyone can claim it. But now the brand is unveiling today in a communiqué the entire range of the sports car, which rivals the Honda e, the Mini Cooper SE and the Smart #1 Brabus. Something to reassure fans, who can choose a slightly more affordable version. Indeed, the range begins with a variant soberly baptized Abarth 500ewhich is distinguished by a more modest endowment.
But not stripped down, since it includes 17-inch alloy wheels, upholstery with red stitching and a 10.25 inch touch screen integrating the Uconnect system with navigation. This is associated with a 7-inch TFT screen with specific graphics.
Just above, the Pack version is distinguished by additional technological equipment with an endowment that includes in particular an induction smartphone charger, keyless opening, reversing camera and parking sensors as well as blind spot detectors and automatic dipped and high beam switching. Heated and electrochromatic mirrors are also standard.
Finally, the Turismo finish crowns the catalog and is first recognizable by its 18-inch alloy wheels, three-spoke leather steering wheel and Alcantara, a material that is also found on the dashboard. The endowment is also completed by a JBL audio system comprising seven speakers and a 320 watt amplifier. This is combined with the Virtual Center system, which guarantees the same sound experience regardless of passenger seating position.
The finish chosen does not affect the technical sheet of the sports car, which is only available with a single engine. For the record, she embarks an electric motor of 155 horsepower and 235 Nm, allowing it to achieve 0 to 100 km/h in just seven seconds for a maximum speed of 155 km/h. The 42 KWh battery promises a range of 260 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle. It takes 35 minutes to reach 80% at a power of 85 kW and it is possible to recover 40 kilometers in just five minutes.
The range of the new Abarth 500e is now starting from 36,900 euros in a sedan and 42,300 euros in a convertible, which makes it eligible for the ecological bonus of 5,000 euros. Sales will open online and in dealerships during the month, while deliveries should start by the end of the yearwithout further details at this time.
