The 2013 500e beats out other electric vehicles like the Honda Fit EV  and Nissan Leaf  with an EPA rating of 108 MPGe on the highway and a total driving range of 87 miles between charges. The 2013 Fiat 500e also has a 116-MPGe combined and 122 MPGe city-cycle rating.
“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 Brand North America. “Our environmentally sexy Fiat 500e offers a design proposition like no other, while delivering unsurpassed MPGe and class-leading range making our 500e a serious contender in the market.”
The 2013 500e , which is the electric version of the 500, is powered by a 111 horsepower electric motor . It recharges in less than 4 hours with a 240-volt outlet. The exterior of the 500e remains almost identical to the gas powered 500 models, but gets distinctive styling cues that also contribute to a 13 percent improvement in aerodynamics.
