Comparison between Fiat 500 turbo and New 500 electric
|   Sunday, July 21, 2013
Recently Fiat has launched its electric vehicle version which name as Fiat 500e. Let's have a look at the comparison with Fiat 500 battery powered version with this electric vehicle version. This comparison test has conduct by the officials of Fiat. In comparison with 500e there is another turbo test car whose model name is 500. First of all the price of the cars, the Fiat 500 has an initial price of 24 thousand dollars while the Fiat 500e model has an initial price of 24.
thousand dollars. There is not a big difference in the prices of the cars.

As per the specification and comparison of the engine there is not a big difference in the performance because Fiat 500e has 111 HP capacities while the Fiat 500 has 135hp the torque of the car is 147 pound-feet of electrical and 150 for turbo coupe. The overall exterior of the car is nearly identical, there is no such big difference in the exterior looks of the car. As we highlight the transmission characteristics than, turbo has 5-speed manual transmission while the 500e has one speed push button transmission which boost the speed of the car.

Now we highlight the efficiency of both the car than it is quite obvious that the efficiency of both the car is not good at all. The efficiency of 500 turbo is better than 500e Fiat. The turbo vehicle has averaged 28 miles per gallon in the normal zone while 34 miles per gallon on highway or fast track. On the other hand the electric vehicle 500e Fiat has 1.51 dollars per gallon on gas. This is quite obvious that gas with electric combo is much cheaper than a diesel engine.

To give an honest review, if your daily travelling is more than 80 miles than electric vehicle is not a practical choice for you. Because electric vehicle could travel less than 80 miles on charge and it will take 4 hours to recharge its battery. But the turbo 500 gives you the freedom of driving you can go anywhere anytime, this is one big advantage of the turbo.
As we talk about the performance of both the car than in a test race which has organized by Fiat noticed that 500e boost and dart in front of turbo this is the advantage of the battery. But after a few seconds turbo catches and pass 500e when it was just at a speed of 60 miles per hour. Turbo just took 8 seconds to catch 500e. It depends on your interest whether you like electric car or you want to spend money on diesel engines.

Last but not least the purchasing price of both the vehicle is almost same but Fiat launched a scheme with an electric car. In this scheme you can easily avail the deal with 200 dollars with no down payment. This could lead to print a good impact on consumer mind related to electric cars. Now it depends on your choice which model you prefer for your need.
