This car is pretty peppy... For driving around town it's more than enough. I got the 2015 for my mom to test out (ev) before getting them a tesla, so far they like it. My dad would like it to be roomier tho. These fiat feel like gokarts on crack..lol

You are referring to the gas version of this car. It got dinged in reviews for being front heavy. The electric is way better. The heavy battery pack lowers the center of gravity, making this a great fun car to drive in the city. Highway max speed is limited to 88 mph.

84-90 miles in the city in ideal conditions ( AC is off, audio is off etc).

More realistically its about 70-75 miles on a single charge.

I thought if you lease an EV, the sate rebate goes to the dealership.

True. I test drove almost all pure EVs out there, except for the Teslas. This Fiat 500e was the funnest!

Nope. The bigger 7500 credit goes to the bank.

But for a lease more than 30 months, the lessee gets the CA rebate.
