The new Fiat 500e is a bit larger than the old Fiat 500 sold in North America; it provides 162 lb-ft of torque and 118 hp for a 3,000 lb (1361 kg) weight. 0-60 takes around 8.5 seconds, similar to a Toyota Corolla and faster than at least one Corolla powertrain.

Range is around 149 miles, but is likely going to be downrated later when it is tested by U.S. methods. Fast charging provides 31 miles of range in five minutes, and 80% battery capacity in 35 minutes. The car as a whole weighs 3,000 lb (1,361 kg). With a Level 2 charger, a full charge takes four and a quarter hours; the battery only holds 42 kWh. Driving modes are normal, one-pedal (high regenerative braking), and sherpa (maximum range, including 50 mph top speed).
