Fiat has launched a very special version of its Fiat 500e electric car that adds a third door to gain practicality: Fiat 500e 3 + 1.
The new Fiat 500e 3 + 1 has an additional door (or half door) on the right side, which opens in the opposite direction of travel and only from the inside (the front door must also be open).

The Fiat 500e 3 + 1 budget version electric car is equipped with a 95 hp electric motor, which can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 9.5 seconds. A tiny battery of 23.8 kWh guarantees a range of up to 180 km.
The top version has an electric motor that develops 118 horsepower, a maximum torque of 220 Nm, a top speed limited to 150 km / h (electronically limited) and a range of 320 kilometres on a single charge.
Initially, Fiat 500e 3 + 1 will be available in the expensive La Prima trim level: chrome inserts, LED headlights, 17-inch wheels, 10.25-inch touch screen, rear-view camera, 360-degree parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, automatic braking and traffic sign recognition.
The new Fiat 500e 3+1 electric car can already be ordered and the list price varies from around 30,000 euros for the budget version to almost 38,000 euros for the top-of-the-range version.
