Wrap-Up

So, the information mentioned above tells us how well designed The FIAT 500e looks and how its customers are going to enjoy riding it.

But…

Are the customers really satisfied with this so-called Top Notch car?

There are some customers who think that this car is really good but there are also customers who feel that this Electric Vehicle in India can still be improved in many ways.

Many customers think that this car is too costly and a luxury car can be afforded at this price. This is because the starting price of this car in India is approximately 30 Lakhs.

This Electric Vehicle in India is not something that middle-class people or most people can afford. Apart from this, the people have complained about the car’s Battery life. This car doesn’t have a long Battery life as it works 80 Miles per Charge, which is not a long life for a car battery.

If we compare this Electric Vehicle in India with the BMWi3 (which is also an electric car), driving it the way as FIAT 500e will prove that the BMWi3 subsequently uses less miles to cover the same distance.

There is yet another problem with this car and that is if you exceed the car speed at 50mph, the battery charge diminishes surprisingly fast to such a point that you would think you might not be able to make it to your destination. In the city areas the car works alright and has regenerative braking so that it can help in recharge but when you take it to the highway area, the motor start eating the battery power super fast.

In short in this review about FIAT 500E I believe that the car is designed beautifully with an awesome body and sporty alloy wheels. But I think that this car is something that the elite buyers will avoid and would prefer taking a Luxury car in its place. There is also the fact that this car is extremely dangerous due to its not satisfying Battery System or Battery Life and cannot be taken out for a long run

The FIAT 500E can attract the people who are thinking of buying the Mini Cooper S. As the cars have a bit of similarities and the FIAT 500e is actually cheaper than the Mini Cooper S.
