The New Abarth 500e is a real Abarth and even more Abarth than ever, meaning that it offers an irreverent, playful, yet bold style, and a thrilling driving experience with the same amount of fun! Combining performance, electric power, style and a new powerful sound, the new Scorpion turns advanced technology into adrenaline, and sustainability into performance. Thanks to its electric architecture, in fact, along with improved weight distribution, better torque, and a wider wheelbase, the New Abarth 500e is faster and more exciting in both urban and suburban driving, ensuring the best performance.

The New Abarth 500e is the most responsive and exciting Abarth 500 ever in city driving, performing better than an Abarth 695 in responsiveness. In fact, it is 1 second faster in the urban pickup, which means 50% faster acceleration from 20 to 40 km/h than its gasoline-powered counterpart.

The New Abarth 500e is also faster outside of city driving, for example on hairpin bends, where from 40 to 60 km/h it can reach the target speed in just 1.5 seconds—much faster than its petrol version, which lags behind by 15 meters, reaching 60 km/h a second later.

Finally, on the open road, the full electric New Abarth 500e performs overtaking maneuvers faster than its petrol version, reaching a speed of 100 km/h (starting from 60km/h) when its petrol counterpart is still driving at 91 km/h, with a difference of approximately 1 second. To summarize, on ‘Misto Alfa Handling Track’ at Balocco the New Abarth 500e beats the 695 by over a second.
