2024 Fiat 500e Arrives In America With 118 HP And $32,500 Price Tag

There are three driving modes: Normal, Range, and Sherpa. In ‘Normal,’ the vehicle retains “familiar” driving characteristics. In this mode, the car will coast along like an ICE-powered vehicle. In ‘Range,’ the one-pedal drive system with regenerative braking is activated.

Lastly, there’s ‘Sherpa.’ This mode maximizes efficiency to ensure the driver reaches their destination safely. The top speed is limited to 50 mph, while power is restricted to 76 hp. However, total power is restored if the driver floors the throttle, for example, in an emergency.

To warn pedestrians of its presence, the 500e has an Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS) that “sings” a charming tune as it passes by. Created by Flavio Ibba-Marco Gualdi, “The sound of 500” is said to give a taste of Italian culture while you drive along.
