Which 500 is the Best?

Live in California or Oregon. Or at least move there. If you don't, you can forget about the 500e. Otherwise, with only one trim level to consider, there's not much to recommend beyond thinking twice about the optional sunroof -- it seriously robs front headroom. Find a Fiat 500e for sale

Competition

2019 FIAT 500 vs the competition

2019 Chevrolet Bolt -- The Chevrolet Bolt is arguably the most appealing EV on the market, boasting a massive 238 miles of range, a spacious cabin and surprisingly sharp driving dynamics.

2019 Hyundai Ioniq EV -- Although it can't go as far as the Bolt, the new Ioniq Electric nevertheless tops most other rivals with its 124 miles of range. It also offers commendable interior space and a more conventional body shape.

2019 Kia Soul EV -- The Soul also goes a bit farther than the norm, and like the 500e, boasts a funky design available in fun colors. Unlike the 500e, it has a huge cabin that rivals a small SUV. Ample feature content rounds out its virtues.

2019 Nissan Leaf -- Decent range, user-friendly interior and a relatively low price make this EV a solid choice for environmentally concerned drivers.

Used BMW i3 -- BMW's little i3 is a perfect car for any urban commute. It's also neatly futuristic with its carbon fiber structure, eco-friendly cabin materials and a funky design that's oddly cool. It's available with a gasoline extended range model too. It's more expensive than the 500e, so a used model will most likely be in order.
