Introducing the brand-new Abarth 500e is one of the most anticipated events in the company's history. The new Abarth 500e electric sports car is the only "small" Abarth to feature the optional Sound Generator, which mimics the infamous exhaust note of the Scorpion. The new Abarth 500e combines the strength of the Scorpion with the convenience of electric mobility thanks to its 42 kWh battery and powerful electric motor.
Outside of city driving, the new Abarth 500e electric sports car is more agile than its gasoline counterpart; for example, it can accelerate from 40 to 60 km/h in under 1.5 seconds, while the petrol model is 15 meters behind by the time it reaches 60 km/h. This unique "Scorpionissima" launch edition comes with all the bells and whistles and is sure to turn heads. The delivery date is set for 2024.
The new Abarth 500e electric sports car drives and handles better because the electric motor is more responsive, the wheelbase is longer, the track is wider, and the balance (or lack of balance) between the axles is better.
Customers have complete control over their Abarth's sporty setup and can let it rip on the road or the track thanks to three reliable performance modes (Tuscano, Scorpion Street, and Scorpion Track). For a more frugal yet thrilling drive, switch to Turismo mode and enjoy more gradual acceleration and reduced power output (maximum power of 100 kW instead of 113 kW, torque of 220 Nm instead of 235 Nm).
When the Abarth 500e electric car is in Scorpion Street mode, its regenerative braking is at its best, letting it perform at its best. The one-pedal driving function allows you to achieve peak performance with a single pedal in Touring or Scorpion mode. When you release the brake pedal, the automobile slows down, regaining the momentum converted into electricity to replenish the battery.
We mark a significant moment in Abarth's history by showing off the first Abarth electric car in Europe, which is based on the new Fiat 500e, and launching the new Abarth Pulse in Brazil.
