The Fiat 500e Makes It Fashionable to Plug-in

The Fiat 500e is perhaps the first all-electric car that can be described as "stylish." Other electric cars, while great for the environment, tend to be a little on the chunkier and plainer side.

Fiat's new EV is anything but plain. Its electric engine is good for 111 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. Its max range is said to be around 80 miles, but there have been "stories" of the 500e going more than 100 miles on a charge.

Now 100 miles isn't very long to most drivers, but the Fiat 500e can be recharged in four hours using a 240v outlet. Additional features include he ability to remotely monitor you car's battery life using your iPhone or Android smartphone. The Fiat 500e is expected to get a soft rollout that should begin a few months into the new year.
