What Car? says...
The Fiat 500 Cabrio is a car with a long and storied history. Soft-top roof aside, it’s identical to its hatchback stablemate – a car that traces its lineage back to the late 1950s, but which was brought kicking and screaming into the present by switching to electric power. To achieve that, it was redesigned from the ground up, yet is still instantly recognisable as an evolution of the petrol-powered original.
So, despite the familiar looks, you’re looking at a cutting-edge electric 500 Cabrio that’ll be sold alongside the existing 500C. Unlike that car, which is offered only with petrol power, albeit with light hybrid assistance, the 500 Cabrio is all-electric.
