The good: The 2013 Fiat 500e's silent electric engine offers good low- and midrange acceleration and feels capable at highway speeds. Cabin tech is simple, but checks the right boxes for audio sources and hands-free calling. The mobile app lets the driver monitor the vehicle and its battery remotely.
The bad: The TomTom navigation system was disappointing. Could take up to a full 24 hours to charge on 110v outlet power.
The bottom line: The pure-electric 2013 Fiat 500e has the looks, the range, and the power to be city-car practical, but competing models offer better dashboard tech.
