The front of the 500e is a bit lower than in other 500 models. The distinctive front fascia aids in aerodynamics and helps the 500e go 87 miles on a single charge.

The 500e can be fully charged in 24 hours from a 110-volt outlet. A 240-volt outlet will get the job done in 4 hours. Unfortunately, the 500e does not support level 3 quick charging.
