New Fiat 500e Projected to Get 108 MPG: Will You Buy One?

The Environmental Protection Agency has given the 2013 Fiat 500e the highest highway MPGe rating ever earned by an electric vehicle in the U.S.

The 2013 Fiat 500e has earned the Environmental Protection Agency's highest highway MPGe, or miles per gallon gasoline equivalent, ever by an electric vehicle in the U.S. 

According to the website Slash Gear, the estimated cost to “fuel” the car annually is just $500, with the vehicle using 29kWh over the course of 100 miles. The cost is calculated by estimating the price of electricity over the course of 15,000 miles of travel distance, using both a mixture of highway and city ratings.

The car, which is set for a spring 2013 release, is also estimated to get a range of 87 miles when completely charged — it can be charged in under four hours with 240 volts — higher than all other electric vehicles in the U.S.

Is the 108 MPGe rating high enough to make you look twice at an electric vehicle when considering a car purchase? Tell us what you think about the 2013 Fiat 500e in comments below.
