The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Fiat 500e can be viewed as the best 500 minicar, if you can live with a real-world range of 80 miles; its power is smoother, its handling is more balanced, and it's cheap to buy and run—but you can only get it in California and Oregon. The 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf is a competent electric car, but its specs are less competitive than before.
