Fiat is selling the 500e in California

There is a new member we have to welcome in the electric car family. We are actually talking about the new Italian model, the Fiat 500e. So that you know the model will be only sold and leased in the US state of California. The price list has also been made public. The owners will start receiving their cars starting this summer only, but can start placing orders now. The Golden State is the place where the first all-exclusive 500e will show face.



The model carries a starting price of $32.500 and future owners will not receive any help from the state or from the federal government. After further investigation, we found out that there are models eligible for the reduction and that the price can drop as low as $20.500 after federal credits, FIAT rebates and state incentives. As an option, California residents also have the option to lease the car for $199 per month for 36 years. In the last situation, the owner has to offer a $999 down payment. The Italian carmaker wants to underline the fact that the new model is no more expensive per month than a comparable petrol model, like the 500 Pop, for example. The new Fiat 500e has an EPA-certified range of 87 miles, which means 139 km and according to Fiat, this is the best-in-class. It is also better than all US market all-electric vehicles produced by high-volume manufacturers. The carmaker offer buyers and leasers up to 12 days each year of alternative transportation for the first three year. This new feature is called standard feature and it is actually a very good idea. This is all we were able to find out on the matter, or at least for now.
