Hooray! The 104bhp Twin Air arrives

So, it’s arriving in April 2014. 104bhp instead of 84bhp, and with a sporty upmarket Cult interior trim, this is the car that we were promised over 2 years ago, but never turned up.

Pity, because, due to the Congestion Charge changes in London, it’s no longer a relevant car to anyone who commutes into London.

Some interior changes, including a great upgrade to the instrument panel with the introduction of a TFT screen, what’s not to like.

For younger drivers who crave a very sparky 500, as Autocar suggests in their excellent online review, this is a £700 cheaper option than the base level Abarth, and if the lower powered but still entertaining 84bhp Twin Air is anything to go by, those 20 extras horses will be very entertaining indeed.

Fiat 500e Road test

Here’s a road test from last year (2013) on the Fiat 500e.

With London’s congestion charge changing so that only, basically, electric cars will qualify if you buy a car now – and if you have an existing Twin Air you are OK if it is registered for Congestion Charge  (CC) until 2015 (but not if you were to buy one now, or buy one from someone who had previously had it registered for CC).

With Fiat announcing the 2015 range of 500s and excluding any electric or hybrid option, it’s no longer possible to buy one of these great cars and use it CC free in London.

Crazy? This writer thinks so, especially when the 500e does exist.
