New Fiat 500 Named Best Small Electric Car

fiat 500 best small electric car award

For the eighth time this year, the New Fiat 500 has bagged an outstanding award! This time, being named Best Small Electric Car by Parkers.

The panel recognised the New 500 for its impressive range, iconic design and easy-to-drive engineering.

Besides being Fiat’s first 100% electric vehicle, it also delivers plenty of top-class features like Level 2 autonomous driving, a choice between 24kWh or 42kWh batteries and up to 199 mile range*.

Driving the New 500, you can also benefit from fast charging capabilities, meaning you can recharge to 80% within just 35 minutes, or 30 miles in only five minutes.

The New 500 comes in a choice of three trim levels – Action, Icon and La Prima – along with 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.”

Throughout 2021, the New 500 has also been awarded:

  • Best Electric Car (Marie Claire)
  • City Car of the Year (Auto Express)
  • Best Small Car and Car of the Year (
  • Convertible of the Year
  • Best Small Car for the City
  • Best Electric Small Car (What Car?)
