New 2020 Fiat e-Ducato pilot scheme launched

15 June 2020

The new, all-electric Fiat e-Ducato van has been revealed

The Italian brand’s first zero-emissions commercial vehicle has entered the final stages of its development programme in a pilot scheme with several “major clients,” ahead of going on sale in the UK in autumn 2020.

The e-Ducato’s electric motor offers similar performance to the van’s least powerful 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, with an output of 121bhp and 280Nm of torque. The motor allows the panel van to haul a payload of up to 1,950kg – although Fiat has limited its top speed to just 62mph to maximise the vehicle’s range.

The e-Ducato is the result of an extended series of measurements and tests, taking into account all the variables of usage by different types of clients, as well as dynamic, load and environmental aspects. The new electric vehicle will soon join the methane-driven Ducato Natural Power in the offering of alternative propulsion systems.

The development of the e-Ducato included over one year of on-road measurements to analyse more than 28,000 connected vehicles. The measurements from a client’s perspective were taken by a dedicated team of professionals on vehicles with combustion engines running more than 50 million kilometres, to take into account all the variables of client usage, dynamics, load, and environmental aspects. The analysis was focused on mileage, model variability for any kind of mission, fuel expenditure, vehicle usage, and temperature. By adopting this approach, Fiat aims to offer comprehensive electric mobility solutions.

With an analysis of energy demand as a starting point, these solutions will not only cover every single task, they will also provide answers ranging from the vehicle to infrastructure, not to mention a whole range of the everyday services increasingly required by a new and emerging mobility. In addition to a full line-up of versions, the e-Ducato also offers modular options for battery size, with ranges in a typical urban real delivery cycle from 200 to over 330 km at standard environment conditions, depending by battery pack, and a variety of charging configurations. It also comes with high-potential performance: speed limited to 100 km/h for improved energy absorption, maximum output of 90 kW and maximum torque of 280 Nm.
