The Fiat Abarth 500e is offered in both three-door hatchback and two-door Cabrio body style variants.

Abarth has unveiled its first entirely electric vehicle, a Fiat 500e-based variant with a host of performance-oriented improvements. Featuring a distinctive body kit, a sportier chassis configuration, a more potent electric engine, unique driving modes, and a 'sound generator', the Abarth 500e stands out from its rivals.

In terms of performance, The Abarth 500e's single electric motor generates 153bhp and 235Nm of peak torque  36bhp and 15Nm more over those of the Fiat 500e.

In terms of range, the Abarth 500e gets the Fiat 500e's 42kWh battery, along with a new 85kW rapid charging technology, which can add approximately 40 kilometres of range in less than 5 minutes, while a 0 to 80% charge takes 35 minutes. The Abarth 500e's revised face is what makes it noticeably different from the standard Fiat. It also features a freshly drawn Scorpion signet, a newly designed radiator grille, and slightly altered full LED headlights. Additionally, there are new titanium-grey exterior mirror caps, a new rear diffuser insert, more flared side skirts, a new front apron, and distinctive light-alloy wheels.

The car's interior is almost identical to that of the Fiat. The standard equipment includes a 7.0-inch instrument panel, a rearview camera, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. The top-tier variants of the car come with JBL speakers and sports seats wrapped in Alcantara. The pre-orders for the model are now being accepted, although the prices are still unknown.
