The autonomy of the novel Abarth 500e is the subject of considerable scrutiny, owing to its status as an electric vehicle. The vehicle’s centerpiece is a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 42 kilowatt-hours, whose primary function is to energize an electric motor capable of producing 113 kilowatts (154 horsepower) and 235 newton-meters of peak torque, with power being directed to the front axle. Regrettably, an all-wheel-drive alternative is not available.
In a mere seven seconds, it can achieve 0-100 kilometers per hour acceleration. In specific circumstances, it outperforms its petrol-powered counterpart, such as in tight corners outside urban areas, where it can accelerate from 40 to 60 kilometers per hour in just 1.5 seconds. The Abarth 500e’s range according to the WLTP cycle is 265 kilometers.
Charging times vary depending on the power outlet utilized. The vehicle comes with an 85-kilowatt fast-charging system. In less than five minutes, it can gather enough energy to achieve approximately 40 kilometers of driving range. Fast charging can reach 80% of capacity in just 35 minutes.

The front bumper retains its menacing contours and expansive air intakes, while the sides of the license plate exhibit a smoother demeanor. The same degree of enhancements is featured at the back, where the taillights truly demonstrate a novel design inspired by the exclusive M4 CSL. A deeper red lens and a fresh light signature within culminate the headlamp cycle, enclosed by a shaded central section.
The rear bumper insert and exhaust area remain unaltered. Internally, the M4 Cabrio already integrates a new, slightly curved display into its dashboard; however, it will be furnished with the newest generation of the “iDrive” system. Version 8.5 will furnish novel connectivity solutions and a variety of applications for this convertible sports car, still accommodating four seats adorned with recent ornamental applications and upholstery that complements the alluring color palette of the exterior.
The BMW M4 Convertible is set to premiere in early 2024. BMW M experts will also modify the chassis to continue providing an elevated dosage of comfort and sportiness in almost equal measures. Suspensions, steering, brakes, and the 8-speed sports automatic transmission will be recalibrated. Nevertheless, the updated BMW M4 Cabrio will not obtain more power than it already provides, as it is sold only in the most potent version of the M Competition with 510 hp and all-wheel drive “M xDrive.” Nonetheless, this is sufficient to continue delivering unmatched sensations. The development process has only just begun, and eager customers must wait for one year until it is available for purchase in early summer 2024.
