New or Significantly Altered Models

2013 Fiat 500 e
The 500 line adds a battery-electric model for 2013. Power is provided by a 111-bhp electric motor powering the front wheels. A 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack gives the 500e an estimated range of 80-100 miles on a charge. The battery pack is rechargeable in less than 4 hours at 240v. The 500e is more aerodynamic than the standard 500 to increase efficiency.

Mostly Unchanged

The convertible version of the 500 adds an Abarth model for 2013. The 500C Abarth is powered by a turbocharged version of the 1.4l engine which increases power to 160-bhp. The Abarth model also includes a sport suspension and 45-series tires to improve handling.
