There isn't one. There probably should be one, that covers the entire state, and has local chapters around dealership locations. Unified. Strength in numbers. blah blah blah

It could be part of a larger Fiat Club, but focused on the electric.

For instance, those drives that people go on, as a group, might not be the same exactly for the e, simply because it would be hard to find a place that has like 20 chargers available so people can top off their battery before going on the run.

In order to include the 500e in regular club activities, special attention to charge points and miles will be important. There needs to be someone who can cross-reference driving routes with chargers and miles.

I've seen get togethers where people will reserve a campground for a day of pot luck, barbeque, etc. Again, find a location that has chargers AND can be reserved (if that exists). I've seen on the Fiat charging station map there are chargers at beaches, recreation areas, parks.

Other ideas include meeting at dealerships which will have the chargers and then going for a drive or lunch or something. Especially if the dealers sponsor something or give discounts to club members.

I don't know anything about the regular Fiat clubs, but someone here probably knows, and can look into a new offshoot for the 500e drivers. Post updates here, though, so many people can see what's going on.
