Does the new Fiat 500 offer the “One pedal driving” experience?

The new Fiat 500 is equipped with an EV mode selector that gives the driver 3 choices to manage the best driving style: NORMAL, RANGE and SHERPA.
The NORMAL mode offers a driving style as close as possible to vehicles with internal combustion engines, with a reduced intrusion of the EV typical regen effect on the brake pedal.
The RANGE mode on the contrary includes the ONE PEDAL DRIVE experience, that maximizes regen by combining conventional acceleration, using the right-hand pedal, with a much higher degree of deceleration than in a conventional car.
When the driver lifts off the pedal, the car slows down more quickly than an internal-combustion-powered car would, coming to a complete stop under some circumstances.
The driver still has to use the brake pedal to come to a complete stop, but once he/she has acclimatized, they only need to hit the brakes in emergency situations, and gradually reducing the need to lift the right foot from one pedal to another.
The SHERPA mode optimizes residual range, through a smoother and lower accelerator pedal response. Limits the maximum speed at 80km/h. Climate and auxiliaries (heated seats, windshield, mirrors) are automatically turned off by the vehicle, even though the driver is always allowed to turn them on.

What’s the Price of the «la Prima»?
