2017 FIAT 500e vs. Its Competition

2017 Fiat 500e

The 2017 Fiat 500e will be facing sales headwinds in California once the Bolt EV arrives with twice the range, so look for even better deals than the $199-per-month leases that Fiat has offered for the last couple of years.

Quick Specs
6.2
If you can live with a real-world range of 80 miles, the 2017 Fiat 500e is probably the best 500 minicar.
7.4
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV could become the first mainstream electric car, with a 238-mile range and a base price in the high $30,000s before incentives.
6.3
The fun-to-drive 2017 Ford Focus Electric finally gets the range boost and DC fast-charging it's needed for years, but Ford's sole electric car is still only available in a few markets.
5.8
Eclipsed by the Chevrolet Bolt EV's 200-mile-plus range, the Nissan Leaf is best enjoyed with the substantial discounts dealers are eager to offer.
6.4
The 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf is a Golf that happens to run only on electricity, but its range is now sub-par.
