Which Is Better? The VW e-Golf or the Fiat 500e – Video
A lot of times plug-in car comparisons don’t make a lot of sense. For example, we have already seen one too many Tesla Model S vs BMW i3 comparisons. Enough.
This time though, we are intrigued.
Which is the better EV? The Fiat 500e or the Volkswagen e-Golf? Having yet to drive the all-electric VW, we really aren’t qualified to answer that question – but perhaps Autobytel is, as they put both cars through the paces.
At first blush, the EVs have a lot of similar features:
- both are mild electrified conversion of a popular petrol platform
- both have similar starting MSRPs, the Fiat 500e from $32,300 – the VW e-Golf from $35,445
- both could be considered “compliance” EVs if you reside the US (regional rollouts)
- how about EV range? The 500e is rated at 87 miles, the e-Golf at 83 miles
Thankfully, Autobytel isn’t too preachy and lets you make up your own mind. So, which is it – the e-Golf or the 500e?
