2019 FIAT 500e vs. Its Competition

2019 Fiat 500e
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Fiat 500e isn’t very common and it doesn’t match well against competitors, all of which have longer ranges.

The Tesla Model 3 is the electric vehicle that seemingly everyone wants, and a low-priced version more than doubles up on the 500e’s range for nearly the same price—before applicable incentives.

The Chevy Bolt EV is a better car for more uses, its range of more than 230 miles is much better.

The Honda Clarity electric has a short range (89 miles, according to the EPA) but can comfortably seat four.

The Nissan Leaf has a longer range—151 miles or more—and is more widely available.

If a two-seater city car is a must, the Smart Fortwo is electric only, but with a shorter range than the 500e it’s very impractical.
