The Fiat 500e is a spunky hatchback with a torquey electric drivetrain that provides 111 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of peak twist, though it feels A LOT quicker than its numbers suggest. Overall this car returns a highway fuel-economy rating of 108 MPGe, which is pretty fantastic, wouldn’t you agree? This little Fiat is also offered in a wide array of chic colors, like Arancio Electtrico (orange) and Celeste Blu (a retro-inspired light-blue hue).
Design-wise, the Nissan Leaf is a lot more conservative than its Italian counterpart. It’s a lot less exciting to look at but a good bit more functional. With four doors and a real back seat it can actually replace a family sedan. And with a maximum driving range of an advertised 107 miles it’s got decently long legs, too. It features a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor that provides stable of 107 horses.
