New electric 500 "La Prima"
The pre-booking of the sedan version begins.
After the success achieved throughout Europe with the pre-booking dedicated to the New 500 "la Prima" cabrio, limited edition of 500 numbered copies, presented last March in Milan, now sold out, the third full electric generation presents itself with the sedan version , also in the special series "La Prima" - which combines the new electric and sustainable soul with the unmistakable design and attention to detail of the Fiat house icon.
The immediately recognizable silhouette of the car presents the upper profile of the roof which is combined with the characteristic inclination of the rear one. This volumetric setting of the passenger compartment is one of the iconic elements of the car and in this third generation it has evolved leading to the development of a more pronounced spoiler, which improves aerodynamic efficiency and, therefore, autonomy. On the front, the absence of the Fiat brand (positioned only behind, in the center of the tailgate) and the original shape of the full LED headlights is striking. It grows in the dimensions of 6 cm in length and in width gaining two centimeters in the step used to improve internal habitability.
The New 500 "the First" sedan is also characterized by the panoramic glass roof for greater light in the passenger compartment which increases comfort and well-being on board.
The autonomy of the New 500 reaches up to 320 km with WLTP cycle, thanks to the lithium-ion batteries which have a capacity of 42 kWh and power an electric unit of 87 kW / 118 hp. The maximum speed is 150 km / h (self-limited) with an acceleration from 0-100 in 9 seconds.
To optimize recharge times, the Nuova 500 enables fast charge in direct current up to 85 kW which allows you to recharge the battery in a very short time. For example, for a reserve of energy sufficient to travel 50 kilometers in urban use - more than necessary in the average daily use - it takes only 5 minutes. And always thanks to the fast charge, you can charge the battery up to 80% in just 35 minutes. The "Combo 2" socket located on the rear right side of the car allows charging in both alternating and direct current and can give input on the charging schedule as well as providing feedback on the vehicle's state of charge.
The New 500 is equipped with three driving modes selectable according to the driving style: Normal which brings driving as close as possible to that of a vehicle with a normal combustion engine, Range that activates the "one-pedal drive" function and maximizes the regenerative braking and Sherpa which intervenes on several elements to minimize the car's energy consumption by optimizing available resources.
It is equipped as standard with automatic emergency braking, high resolution rear camera, automatic twilight and high beam sensors, emergency call (ecall) and electric parking brake. In addition, it adopts the ADAS "Advanced Driver - Assistance Systems" assistance and safety devices for autonomous Level 2 driving. The new UConnect 5 infotainment system with on-board control panel with 7 '' full TFT display is also standard. Radio 10.25 '' Touch Screen NAV, DAB, Wireless CarPlay / Android Auto, which provides connected services through the Uconnect Box and the UConnect Services suite of services.
The new 500 "La Prima" sedan is available in three exclusive liveries: Ocean Green (mica-coated), Mineral Gray (metallic) and Celestial Blue (three-layer).
The price of the New 500 "the First" sedan, including easyWallbox, the system that allows you to connect to the home network developed by ENGIE Eps for FCA, is 34,900 euros and can also be purchased with the "Più by FCA Bank" program.
