The Fiat 500e's $199 Lease Deal Is Hard To Come By

The Fiat 500e's $199 Lease Deal Is Hard To Come By

Fiat 500e suprised everybody with its performance in March reaching an estimated 1,310 sales in the US.

In the few prior months, we saw decline in sales year-over-year, so the surge of over 100% from 644 in March 2014 was indeed strange.

Believe it or not, the 500e is now one of the best selling electric cars in the US in 2015 (8% market share for plug-ins in three months), above the Chevrolet Volt! Well, it will be hard to preserve such a result in the longer term, but congrats to Fiat for moving so much electrified metal.

As it turns out, typically the 500e accounts for 10-20% of all Fiat 500 sales, but in March that figure jumped to a record high 40%.

Editor's note: Fiat has chosen to not disclose 500e sales, so sales are now estimated based on state-level reports and incentives claimed from California (1,223 Clean Vehicle Rebates were claimed in March, double any previous period) and Oregon.
