    New 500 scoops Best Electric City Car title at inaugural EcoCar Electrified Top 50 Awards

    New 500 - the first-ever, fully-electric vehicle from Fiat continues to be recognised as the go-to urban car of choice with yet another accolade as Best Electric City Car
  • Credited for its stylish interior, generous battery options, and affordability

New 500, the first fully-electric car from Fiat, has picked up yet another Best Electric City Car award at the inaugural EcoCar Electrified Top 50 Awards 2022, in Diesel&EcoCar Magazine.  

For 2022, Diesel&EcoCar Magazine has announced the very first EcoCar Electrifed Top 50 Awards, celebrating the most capable new hybrids, plug-in hybrids, hydrogen fuel-cell and electric cars on sale today. Over the past 12 months, a team of well-respected writers have tested more than 200 new cars, assessing them in everyday conditions and scrutinised with the target customer in mind.

Judges were most impressed by the New 500’s stylish interior, generous battery options, and attractive price point. The New 500’s punchy performance and tight turning circle were also credited when announcing Fiat’s first, fully-electric vehicle as Best Electric City Car.

Ian Robertson, editor at Diesel&EcoCar Magazine, commented: “The New 500 is already climbing sales charts, and we wouldn’t be surprised if this affordable EV quickly becomes one of Europe’s most popular electric cars.

Despite its tiny size, it packs an impressive 42kWh battery in all but the entry trim which has a 24kWh item, giving it a range of approaching 200 miles (118 miles on the Action). With a starting price of just over £22k, it’s also one of the cheapest EVs to buy or lease.”

“It excels in towns and cities, with punchy acceleration and a tight turning circle making it ideal for nipping in and out of traffic. It also looks cool inside and out, with a vastly improved interior and smart 10.25-inch infotainment setup.”

Greg Taylor, Fiat and Abarth UK Managing Director, said: “It is always a huge pleasure to receive further recognition from industry experts, which pays homage to the phenomenal work of our engineers and designers that have made the New 500 as impressionable as it is.”
