You can already reserve your new 2024 Fiat 500e

  • The urban EV can drive 240 km between charges.

  • The 500e is the cheapest EV in Canada.


 

The Italian brand has finally launched the reservation process for its new 500e 2024. This second electric variant of the city car – the first generation of the electrified urban car was marketed in California, among other places, but its distribution remained limited – also becomes the most affordable electric car in Canada, with a starting price of $39,995, or rather $42,190 with additional fees, but without applicable taxes. However, this figure does not include the two government rebates still available in British Columbia and Quebec.

In la belle province (Quebec), this amount to be deducted from the purchase price can reach $12,000 ($5,000 federal and $7,000 provincial), which significantly reduces the financial burden of this urban electric.

Interested consumers are invited to visit the Fiat Canada website (FiatCanada.com) to complete their reservation for the first deliveries scheduled for spring 2024.

The Fiat 500e 2024 can drive 240 km before having to stop to charge its 42-kWh battery. Its 85-kW recharging capacity also enables it to regain 50 km of range in five minutes or return to 80% of its charge in just 35 minutes, when connected to a fast-charging station. Connection to a Level 2 (11 kW) terminal takes a little longer, at four hours and fifteen minutes.

At this time, Fiat had still not divulged the power figures for its first electric, but we do know the optimum torque of 162 ft-lb. On the other hand, with a weight of 1,361 kg, we can’t expect staggering performance, even if the 500e becomes the lightest electric car in North America.

It will be interesting to see how consumers respond to this new electric Fiat 500. We’re betting that die-hard fans of the Italian division will fall for it, but that the vehicle’s reduced dimensions will limit its diffusion.
