All-electric Fiat 500 priced at £26,995 with wallbox charger

Published 09 June 2020

Fiat has announced that it is now taking orders for the new electric Fiat 500 'la Prima', priced at a smidge under £27,000 - including the Plug-In Car Grant – and fitting of a wallbox charger. Range is 199 miles.

Fiat's 500 'la Prima' hatch will rival the Honda E and MINI Electric, although it's got a bigger price tag than both at £26,995. The all-electric hatchback that follows the convertible version - which launched in March.

It features lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 42kWh, connected to an electric motor that will allow up to 199 miles of range on the WLTP cycle. This is better in comparison to the 124 miles of the electric MINI and the 136-mile range of the Honda E.

Fiat claims the 85kW fast-charge setup can charge up to 30 miles of range in five minutes, and 80 per cent in 35 minutes where possible. At home, it'll take a bit longer and, if you upgrade the 'easyWallbox' to 7.4kW, you can fully charge at home in six hours.

The 500 now comes with a panoramic glass sunroof and a more pronounced spoiler, while la Prima models get full LED headlights, 17-inch diamond-cut wheels, chrome-plated inserts on the side panels, and dashboard and eco-leather seat upholstery as standard.

In terms of tech, the new UConnect 5 infotainment system offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and works with the car's 10.25-inch high-definition touchscreen that is integrated into the dashboard.

There's also now Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, lane keeping assistance, Intelligent Speed Assist, blind spot sensors, attention assist and 360-degree sensors.

Petrol and diesel-engined 500s will be available alongside the new, bigger 500 too. Prices for the electric city car start at £26,995.

This is a high price to pay for zero emissions. How long will it take to get anything back from the cost per mile/service intervals

I have had Abarth 500, 500 Twin Air and Panda Twin Air 4x4. No major problems with any of them.
