To enter the electric era, Abarth unveiled the first Abarth 500e, a fully electric sports car. The new Abarth 500e electric car is a fantastic addition to the Scorpion range and one of the most anticipated models in the company's history.

The new Abarth 500e electric sports car is a responsive and thrilling electric city car that is also quick and fun to drive on the open road. To put it succinctly, it's "more Abarth than ever." When pitted head-to-head against a gasoline engine, the electric design comes out on top because of its superior performance in those three areas: weight distribution, torque, and wheelbase.

The electric drive is the ideal technological advancement for enhancing the driving experience, as it allows for more acceleration, improved balance, increased stability, and superior road holding. In a nutshell, electrification means greater excitement and more competitiveness for Abarth. When viewed through a different lens, this technology represents the quest for greener alternatives and the purest form of vehicular enjoyment possible.

"We offer the first Abarth electric car in Europe, based on the Fiat 500e, and launch it after the launch of the Abarth Pulse on the Brazilian market," said Olivier Francois, CEO of FIAT & Abarth. Since I consider our audience to be part of our family, they will be invited to participate in every stage of our road to electrification.

In addition to being a genuine scorpion, the new Abarth 500e electric sports car is "more Abarth than ever." That's right; it's as much fun to drive as it is to look at, thanks to its unabashedly whimsical yet bold design. The new Skorpion converts cutting-edge technology into adrenaline and eco-friendliness into performance with its potent blend of performance, electric power, style, and a new, booming sound.

In city driving, the new Abarth 500e electric sports car is the most responsive and exhilarating model ever produced by the brand. It even outperforms the Abarth 695, which is known for its quickness. It has 50% better acceleration from 20 to 40 km/h than its gasoline-powered analog. Outside of the city, the new Abarth 500e is more elegant than the gasoline version, covering the same distance from 40 to 60 km/h in just 1.5 seconds (the petrol version is 15 meters behind, covering the same distance in only a second).

Because the electric motor is more responsive, the wheelbase is longer, the track widths are wider, and the balance between the axles is just right, the new Abarth 500e electric city car responds faster, is more agile going into corners, and goes faster in the curve and coming out of it.

The electric motor in the new Abarth 500e generates 113 kW of power and is powered by a 42 kWh battery (155 hp). Together, the scorpion's speed and the convenience of electric mobility create a formidable machine. The new 500e can go from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 7 seconds. The car boasts the class's highest rate of acceleration and the lowest rate of drag, all while promising zero local emissions.

Since the new Abarth 500e is thrilling and quick, you can enjoy driving it with abandon. By remaining loyal to its roots and DNA, the new Abarth 500e wants to broaden its customer base.

The new Abarth 500e electric city car features an 85 kW fast charging system, which replenishes the battery in record time and ensures a good time. For instance, the required energy reserve for the day (around 40 kilometers) can be built up in less than five minutes. In comparison to, say, picking the next vacation spot, this takes far less time. With the rapid charge, you may get 80 percent of your battery life back in just 35 minutes.

The automobile may be charged fast and conveniently in the garage with the help of an easyWallbox. It's a simple solution that requires no setup beyond mounting it on the wall near a power source. The easyWallbox may be set up and its settings monitored with the help of a Bluetooth connection and the "MyEasyWallbox" app.

Abarth has always placed a premium on audio quality. As opposed to being merely a functional aspect, it is now used as a means of artistic expression. The Abarth roar has also been associated with fun and adrenaline behind the wheel for decades. It's tailored to deliver the range of feelings that every Abarth driver craves. The new Abarth 500e is the only small car to provide an enveloping auditory experience for people who like to drive electric while still experiencing the distinctive Abarth roar, in addition to its high performance and daring design. After all, this noise has accompanied ardent drivers for decades, and it has always been associated with speed and prowess.

In contrast to the normal noise, the Sound Generator offers an option with an AVAS that is reminiscent of the sound of a gasoline engine. In addition, the new Abarth 500e's key on/off system plays a guitar chord every time the ignition is turned on or off if the car's sound generator is installed. The noisemaker can be turned off at any time while the car is parked.

The new Abarth 500e electric sports car will feature a paperless, online, and intuitive customer experience that reflects the desires of Abarthisti and the brand's strategy of simplicity. With the first click, the customer gets a taste of the checkered flag, and it only takes a few minutes to make a personalized selection and reserve the vehicle of their choice.

Starting on November 22, the new limited Abarth 500e Scorpionissima Launch Edition will be available exclusively through the new online system. As a special thank you for their dedication to the brand and participation in the online "Performance Creators" campaign, members of the Abarth "Scorpioship" community will be given a one-month pre-reservation period.

An integral part of the Abarth brand has always been its loyal fan base. There are now over 160,000 Abarthists living in over 100 countries. They wear their loyalty to the company, its founder, and its heritage on their sleeves. Style and excellence are core qualities in their daily lives. There is a sizable clan that regularly shows up for Abarth events and discusses the development of new vehicles in great detail. For this reason, we've decided to ask Abarth enthusiasts to do more than just hit the road in their vehicles; we want them to participate in shaping the future of the brand.
