    New Fiat 500 crowned Best Small Electric Car by Parkers

  • New Fiat 500 bags Best Small Electric Car award at Parkers New Car Awards
  • Recognised for its easy-to-drive engineering, impressive range and iconic design

New Fiat 500 takes up its award tally to eight in 2021, this time taking the acclaim from Parkers as the Best Small Electric Car.   

Judges praised the New 500 for its impressive turning circle, good looks and affordability.

The New 500 is the first fully-electric vehicle from Fiat and provides a range of best-in-class features such as Level 2 autonomous driving technologies, a variety of battery options – 24kWh or 42kWh - and a substantial driving range of up to 199 miles, the longest range of any electric city car on the market.

New 500 also benefits from fast charging capabilities, allowing the battery to recharge to 80 per-cent range in only 35 minutes. In addition, 30 miles of range takes only five minutes.

Boasting a host of entry levels, New 500 includes three trim levels (Action, Icon and La Prima) as well as convertible options from the Icon trim upwards.

Keith Adams, editor, Parkers said: “What makes a great city car? Pert looks, titchy overall dimensions, a tight turning circle, and zero emissions are good starters, and the new Fiat 500 Electric ticks all those boxes and more. The Parkers team has fallen for this car big time, and I can understand why, thanks to all of the above and an agreeable starting price. Top all that off with a model line-up that includes a cheap entry-level model with a smaller battery, as well as a long-range version that can turn its hand at motorway driving, and you have a great all-rounder that’s difficult not to fall for.”

Greg Taylor, Fiat UK managing director, said: “New Fiat 500 continues to make waves among industry experts, tallying its eighth award in as many months. Boasting best-in-class features – such as Level 2 autonomous driving – an impressive driving range, as well as multiple trim levels, it is no surprise the New 500 continues to grab attention in the industry.”

In 2021, the New 500 has already been named Best Electric Car (Marie Claire), City Car of the Year (Auto Express), Best Small Car and Car of the Year (Electrifying.com), as well as Convertible of the Year, Best Small Car for the City and Best Electric Small Car (What Car?). New 500 has also been recognised among fleet experts, picking up Best EV City Car by Fleet World.
