Specs and prices have been announced for the new Fiat Professional E-Ducato electric van, which is available to order now.
The model comes with either a 47kWh or 79kWh battery, allowing electric ranges of up to 146 miles and 230 miles respectively on the WLTP city cycle – ranges are 88 to 175 miles on the combined cycle. Times for a full battery charge are two hours 25 minutes and four hours respectively.
Both batteries come with a 122hp motor, allowing acceleration from 0-30mph in less than six seconds, although top speed is only 62mph.
The E-Ducato has a payload of up to 1,885kg, while load volumes are the same as the diesel Ducato, at 10-17m3.
Three bodystyles are available – goods van, chassis cab, and passenger van. The goods van is available in three different heights (2309mm, 2579mm, or 2814mm), three different lengths (5413mm, 5998mm, or 6363mm) and three different wheelbase sizes (3450mm, 4035mm, or 4035mm).
