Fiat has confirmed the pricing for its new electric E-Ducato van, with models available from £47,675 including the government’s plug-in van grant.
The large electric van rivals the likes of the Mercedes eSprinter and is available with two battery packs – a 47KWh one offering 99 miles of range and a 79kWh option delivering a claimed range of 192 miles. The ability to charge at 50kW also means the battery can be topped from flat to 80 per cent in 30 minutes. Both versions feature an electric motor producing 120bhp.
Fiat claims the E-Ducato retains all the practicality of the standard diesel model, with a 1,950kg payload being the best in its class – offering a volume of up to 17m3 .
The electric van features regenerative braking to maximise the range, and is available with four driving modes – Eco, Normal, Power and Turtle. The latter setting is an emergency mode that’s activated when power reaches nearly zero per cent, and offers reduced performance to extend the remaining range.
Two trims are available – Standard and eTecnico. Standard kit includes a five-inch touchscreen, automatic climate control, automatic lights and wipers and a host of safety equipment. The eTecnico brings a larger seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring, a reversing camera and electric folding mirrors.
Various lengths and wheelbases are available, with the E-Ducato originally just available as a panel van, but chassis cab and passenger models will follow in 2021.
All E-Ducatos come with a five-year warranty, five years free servicing and five years of roadside assistance, along with a 10-year battery warranty.
Order books for the Fiat E-Ducato are now open, with first deliveries expected late in the year.Enquire on a new Fiat
