    All-electric Fiat 500 wins Best Small Car at the Autocar Awards 2022

    New Fiat 500 named Best Small Car at the Autocar Awards 2022
  • Acknowledged for its affordability, distinctive design and impressive battery range
  • In 2022, the New 500 has already scooped the Small Electric Vehicle of the Year by Company Car Today and City Car of the Year Award by GQ magazine

The fully-electric New Fiat 500 continues to make its mark, picking up yet another prominent automotive award. This time, the city car has been named Best Small Car at the annual Autocar Awards.

The New 500 marks the third generation of this iconic car and received praise for its ‘cute and distinctive’ design features, manoeuvrability and impressive driving range of up to 199 miles (WLTP) - the longest range of any electric city car on the market.

The car also earned Klaus Busse, Fiat’s vice-president of design at the time, the Design Hero prize in last year’s Autocar Awards.

Made up of multiple trim levels – Action, Icon and La Prima, – the New 500 range has previously been recognised as being great value for money, stylish and having fantastic real world range. The car boasts three driving modes to choose from: Normal, Range and Sherpa, which are designed to assist and enhance the driving experience and manage energy efficiency.

Mark Tisshaw, editor, Autocar said: “The 500 shows the direction for all small electric cars. Our roads aren’t getting any wider, and the 500’s dimensions are as useful on Turin’s streets as they are down an English country lane. The battery in the floor has banished any top-heaviness, and the stiff suspension, pointy steering and impressive lateral grip give the responses a keen driver wants.”

Tisshaw added, “The New 500 is a competitive electric car. Where it truly differentiates itself is that it is genuinely joyful, to look at and to drive. It is recognisable, it’s retro yet modern, it’s cute and it’s distinctive.”

Greg Taylor, UK Managing Director for Fiat and Abarth, said: “At the end of February, New 500 scooped it’s 25th award. Less than three months later, this award from Autocar marks the 30th accolade that our first, fully-electric car has picked up. This milestone pays homage to the exceptional work of our designers and engineers that have made the New 500 as impressionable as it is amongst our customers and industry experts.”
