After Fiat retired from domestic market, Abarth became popular again with its parallel imported 595/695 models. Although Fiat 500 series has been launched for a long time, this small car still looks full of life. The Abarth 500e is Abath's latest electric vehicle, a performance version based on 500e.
The look of Abarth 500e is much more radical than that of regular 500e. The original pretty shape has been replaced with a more aggressive aerodynamic body kit, but split headlight design has been retained. And as shape of bumper has become fuller, effect of original wide-body body has been improved, and body height has been reduced, and feeling of movement has been greatly improved.
A closed central grille is a standard configuration for electric vehicles, and Abarth 500e uses large fonts to match car logo, a certain area of \u200b\u200bthe air intake is allocated below, and overall dynamics are not inferior to fuel version.
On side you can see exclusive Abarth garland and scorpion stickers. The blade-shaped irregular wheels are very pretty and there is also a striking scorpion logo. The rest is basically same as the regular 500. The Abarth version will not provide an extended 3+1 version, which is reasonable for a high performance version.
The change in shape of tail is relatively small. Compared to 500s, only some spoilers are added, and it is equipped with a small size spoiler, which still looks very cute and cute.
The interior is based on 500e, but some materials have been added to improve driving atmosphere. The center console is wrapped in large-area suede, and handshake area on steering wheel is also made from same material, which is expected to have a good touch.
In terms of performance, compared to regular version, Abarth's power has been greatly improved. The maximum output of 500e is only 117 horsepower and maximum torque is 220 Nm. The maximum power of Abarth 500e has been increased. up to 155 horsepower and a peak torque of 235 Nm, which reduces its 100-kilometer acceleration time to 7 seconds, which is still two seconds faster than regular version of 500e. In addition, Abarth 500e is equipped with simulated sound waves to make driving more exciting, and it can also be turned off manually to make it quieter.
However, compared to data of fuel version, these results are not very good. The most powerful Abarth 695 is equipped with a tuned 1.4T engine with a maximum power of 180 horsepower and a peak torque of 250Nm. has a faster 0-100 acceleration time of 6.7s, and top speed can reach 225km/h.
Compared to regular 500e, Abarth 500e has a certain performance improvement, and look also continues Abarth essence, which can be seen as a skilled Abarth work. But in terms of performance, in terms of objective data, this Abarth 500e hasn't been able to beat past Abarth models, and in terms of performance, it seems deplorable. For now, fuel version of Abarth model is still a good car to consider. The old platform provides a cleaner driving experience, which could also be a trait that will become increasingly rare in future.
