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.

6.8
The 2019 Chevy Bolt EV electric hatchback started a trend that others are only now catching up to.
6.0
The 2019 Honda Clarity is a hybrid or electric vehicle with a bold exterior that ultimately fails to make a statement.
6.8
With a quicker-accelerating, 226-mile Plus model in the lineup, the 2019 Nissan Leaf is a lot of electric car for the money.
7.3
The 2019 Tesla Model 3 is a glimpse of the future in many ways; but it’s far from perfect.
