A taste of Italy! Driving the Fiat 500E

"I genuinely enjoy and love this car; it is such a cool little electric vehicle that has so much of that Italian charm the presence you'd expect from a kind of retro-modern classic type vehicle, but it's actually pretty practical. It has really good electric vehicle drivetrain and great technology."

Be careful what you wish for – The all-electric FIAT 500e review

"The new Fiat 500e is the best 500 in virtually every way, bar its personality. It’s quicker, more confident, better in the corners, quieter and offers far more technology, however, I couldn’t help but feel that it lacked the impiness and annoying quirks of the older model. The temperamental gearbox, the engine note, the rattles – maybe the 500e is too good?"

Fiat 500e: the best electric city car ever?

"Although it doesn't have as much power (much less power than the Mini Electric in fact), I'm kind of drawn towards this one because it's just more fun. It's more adorable, it's even easier to park in the city. That turning circle is ridiculous."
