Fiat 500e Efficiency, Range Higher than Ford Focus EV, Nissan Leaf

Sergio may have grumbled that the company would lose money on every Fiat 500e it sells, but pint-sized plug-in nonetheless just returned some impressive figures after EPA testing. The 500e attained a 108 MPGe highway rating, which Fiat is claiming is “industry-best.” In addition to the high MPGe ratings, the 500e also received a range rating of 87 miles by the EPA, which is being touted as “best-in-class among high-volume manufacturers.” Presumably Tesla does not yet belong to the “high-volume” club with its 200+ mile Model S sedan.

Size and performance-wise, the 500e is probably closest to the just-announced Chevrolet Spark EV. The Mitsubishi i is similar in size, but nowhere close in terms of objective performance. The Nissan Leaf and Ford Focus Electric are both substantially larger and heavier. Therefore, any specific references to “best-in-class” performance is a tricky proposition.
