After the average fuel consumption of the Abarth 500e was revealed, its range will be no more than 250 km.
Hours after the official presentation of the Abarth 500e, the brand has started the reservation process for the limited edition Scorpionissima, thus revealing some information that was not mentioned at the presentation.
Important information such as the range of the Abarth 500e and the price of this urban sports car for the Spanish market.
Fortunately, on this occasion we only had to wait a few hours to find out this information, which is very important for any vehicle, but perhaps even more so for an electric car.
So let’s start by revealing the price of the Abarth 500e.
Price of the Abarth 500e Scorpionissima
In fact, the only price that has been revealed for the Abarth 500e is for its launch edition, a limited edition of 1,949 units in honour of Abarth’s founding year and named the Scorpionissima.
As is usual with such launch versions, the brand usually equips this version to the “teeth”, offering the maximum of features and finishes. This time it is no exception and the Abarth 500e Scropionissima is equipped with a large number of extras and finishes.
The price of the Abarth 500e Scorpionissima is 43,000 euros for Spain, a price that already gives a clear indication of how much the other versions marketed by the brand will cost. The other versions are expected to be priced between 36,000 euros and 41,000 euros.
The Scorpionissima version comes as standard with exclusive 18-inch wheels, sports pedals, alcantara seats, keyless entry and start and a JBL premium sound system.
It also features the brand’s latest safety technology such as driving assistance, blind spot detector, active cruise control and lane keeping system among others.
Fuel consumption and estimated range of the Abarth 500e Scorpionissima
Another secret that has been revealed and which we have been eager to know is the range of the Abarth 500e. This data has not been provided as such, but it has been published a data that allows us to know the estimated range of the Abarth 500e, and it is none other than its average consumption.
The average fuel consumption of the Abarth 500e is 18 kWh/100km, which for the size and weight of the car is already somewhat high. It should also be borne in mind that the fuel consumption figures are always somewhat different from the actual figures.
With this and taking into account that the battery of the Abarth 500e is 42 kWh, we get a range of just under 250 kilometres.
It is true that the Abarth 500e is a vehicle designed for city driving, but today most electric cars already offer a greater range than the Abarth 500e. The Achilles heel of the Abarth 500e is probably its high fuel consumption, and compared to other similar cars, even larger and more powerful ones, it comes off badly.
