Review

Great to look at and surprisingly good fun – just don't expect to carry lots of people and luggage. Go for a version with the larger 42kWh battery for a decent range between charges.

get the best price

This is worth considering if you like your creature comforts, because as well as climate control and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, Lounge models also come with a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system and Bluetooth, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, rear parking sensors and fog lights.

Despite the 'hybrid' badge, the 500 can't travel on electric power alone and you can't plug it in. It only has a tiny battery that barely does anything the improve the weedy acceleration, although performance is adequate for town driving.
