Between the achingly good looks and dirt-cheap running costs, a used 500e makes a great deal of sense for buyers who don't need masses of space but want a bit of style.
As the numbers appearing on the used forecourts start to go up, prices will certainly fall and make the cute little electric Fiat more attainable for those wanting a second-hand one. Already there are 18 month old cars with the desirable bigger battery and around 25,000 miles which offer a £10,000 plus saving on the new car price.
The model line ups can be confusing, but the Prima is the top spec and the Action 24 is the lowliest, with a smaller range and less equipment too. The [RED] edition is priced the same as other mid-range versions but has some more colourful trim options - make sure you like them before you buy or you could be in for a surprise!
