Fiat unveils Ducato Electric

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Van Expert?

Fiat Professional has unveiled its Ducato Electric, an all-electric BEV – Battery Electric Vehicle – version of its popular van range, which will go on sale in 2020.

The new Ducato Electric is Fiat’s first full-electric model, designed and developed according to the FCA Group’s most advanced quality standards.

The Ducato Electric has been developed through pilot projects involving large companies, to identify all specific uses and demands, which in turn assists with individual customisation and configuration. Fiat has a year’s worth of customer data in relation to the real use of their vehicles.

When it goes on sale, the Ducato Electric will be available in all body variants. It will also feature modular battery size options, with range from 136 to 223 miles (NEDC cycle) and different charging configurations.

Its speed will be limited to 62mph to optimise energy use and it will have a maximum power of 90 kW and maximum torque of 280 Nm. The new electric powerplant does not penalise the Ducato’s load volumes from 10m3 to 17m3, and a payload of up to 1,950 kg.

More information on cost will be released closer to when the Fiat Ducato Electric goes on sale in 2020.
