2022 Abarth 500e first look – the first electric hot hatch?

For most of its life, the Fiat 500 has always had a slightly rowdier brother thanks to in-house tuners Abarth.

These pocket rockets have always been a great laugh, with go-kart driving characteristics, aggressive styling and noisy exhausts.

However, the Fiat on which it’s based has gone all-electric for the latest generation, and Abarth has followed suit. You could argue that this is the first electric hot hatch, with 152bhp being sent to the front wheels.

So, what’s it like up close? Join Matt Prior as he takes a look around.
