The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Fiat 500e is a fashionable way to drive an all-electric vehicle, but its comparatively short battery range and limited availability undermines its broader appeal. There's a VW Golf for everyone, and they're even better for 2018 thanks to a big tech upgrade inside.
