So, if designers and engineers were able to increase the 500e’s range by several miles from simply tweaking its bodywork, how far can the car actually travel on a single charge? The company estimates it can go around 80 miles on a full battery, but in urban conditions it ought to be able to travel 100 miles before needing a recharge. This is likely because city driving provides more opportunities for energy-saving regenerative braking.

When it comes to “fuel” economy the federal gub-mint rates the Fiat 500e at a whopping 122 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) on the urban test cycle and 108 on the highway. This works out to a combined score of 116 MPGe.

    I hate this car because it represents everything that’s wrong with California. CARB has too much power and I think its dangerous. Tell all these people that if they REALLY want to be green they should go ride a damn bike.
