Despite the critical situation in Italy surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, Fiat revealed the new 500e earlier this month. It’s a cute-looking, all-electric city car built from the ground up on an entirely new platform. Initially, it’ll be available as a special launch edition model, of which just 500 will be made priced at €37,500. All these units feature a foldable roof design but new spy photos confirm the Italian company is also working on a more traditional hardtop version of the car.
Photographed testing on public roads in full-body attire, the 500e hatchback looks virtually the same as the already revealed 500e with the only difference, obviously, being the new roof design. Gone is the foldable roof mechanism and in place is a fixed roof with a stylish small spoiler at the back. We expect the rest of the car to be virtually identical, including the funky LED headlights and the grille-less front fascia.
