The 500e’s miles per gallon equivalent is a combined 116 city/highway with a 122 MPGe city rating and 108 MPGe highway rating. The EPA also estimates a full year of driving (15,000 miles) to cost $500 for charging. By comparison, the i-MiEV’s estimated annual cost is $550 and both the ForTwo’s and Leaf’s is $600.

The all-electric 500e is powered by a 111-horsepower electric motor that propels the subcompact to a maximum speed of 85 mph. Supplying juice to the motor is a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery with an estimated charge time of less than four hours on 240-volt Level 2 charging. Expect charging times of around 24 hours on 120-volt power.

California will be the first state to see the 500e when it goes on sale in the second quarter of 2013.
