Fiat reveals electric Ducato with 360km range

After Renault, Ford, VW and Mercedes, Fiat is also announcing the introduction of a large all-electric van in its line-up, i.e. the Ducato Electric. When it reaches showrooms in 2020, it will be available in all body variants with the same load volumes as the conventional Ducato, from 10m³ to 17m³, and offers payloads up to 1,950 kg.

The Fiat Ducato Electric will offer a choice of battery options for a total range of 220 to 360 km (NEDC), so expect between 150km and 240km on average in real use conditions. The maximum output and torque are 90kW and 280Nm.

BEV attitude

The Ducato Electric has been conceived and developed on the basis of a specific, detailed study of customers' real use of their vehicles, involving a year of data gathering, which confirmed that more than 25% of the market already has a "BEV Attitude" in terms of use, routes, dynamics and performances, Fiat Professional says.

The Italian OEM added that the Ducato Electric is supported by pro-active cooperation with the customer, through Pilot Projects involving some large industry players, to fully exploit all their knowledge base, and identify all specific use demands to be borne in mind during individual customisation and configuration for every application.

With this approach, Fiat Professional intends to offer complete electric mobility solutions, ranging from vehicles to infrastructures.
