The Fiat EV Range
As soon as the industry leading innovator Tesla made sure that it 2012 Tesla Model S range will truly create a brand new huge personal use EV market it was obvious that at some point it will meet some serious competition from big old established brands.
Not surprisingly as one of the oldestestablished companies on the market Fiat was sure to start its own line and became one of the few brands truly trying to compete with the Faraday Future range.
Thus similarly to how many big established brands also from Germany like Audi and BMW that decided to branch out its EV production and its ranges to include different car types from CUV hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars, the Fiat EV range will be pretty much all about the same car and size class carrying on being a supermini smallest size EV. As its performance is not very good at all compared to other EV ranges though based on the size this classifies it as a strong entry level option for sure even considering the price.
Surely targeting both the newcomers to the EV market based on the car size and also EV owners looking for a second car, the Fiat EV range is meant to be more of a personal use or a small personal car more than anything. Still it was the range that inserted and is keeping Fiat in the EV conversation.
On top of that when surely being in the game of comp`eting with the market leader Tesla, it is crucial to compare the Fiat EV range to that brand both in terms of specs and looks. So comparing how technically and technologically, not even mentioning comfort wise did this range get to Tesla it might be not a very close call as it lacks behind Model Y it somewhat resembles. With its FWD with 1 to 2 motors depending on the specific variant of the range it is definitely most comparable to Tesla Model Y or Tesla Model 3 as a similar class-performance option.
For sure we are not skipping the looks as well - we can say that just like Tesla yet with a more minimalistic and less of a premium approach, Fiat EV has gone the more of a minimalistic route and made its range look more simplified and minimalistic. Its range has both a somewhat minimalistic futuristic body form as a sedan and a very minimalistic yet stylish interior finsh with some premium options.
Aware of the fact that the looks and design are very important for any car range for sure, the specs and performance are truly everything. Based on just judging the Fiat EV range on the merit of it specs and metrics, let's take a look at specs. Depending on the specific variant in the range it starting electric range and acceleration vary, as it starts o to 60 at very much slow even for its size class 11 seconds which is one of the greatest at all and works as an entry level spec for those who do not care about the speed. Kind of average in terms of max speed or acceleration or other show-off features, it is also kind of not surpising or gaining in range to improve the impression. This tranlsates to when the journey has already begun, it will deliver you as far as the official EPA rated range of up to 84 mi without a single recharge. This sort of puts it into an entry level as well as it limits any sort of long distance traveling whatsoever.
It easily can be categotized as somewhar lower priced than a few other smal sized EVs, which might make buyers or people new to the EV world ignore a lack of some things other similar ranges in or close to its size class or other offer at a higher cost.
