Fiat Professional has officially detailed its new Ducato Electric van, at a media event held in Europe overnight.
Due to go on sale in 2020, the Fiat Ducato Electric is the commercial arm’s first EV and will offer several battery capacity options with driving range rated between 136 and 223 miles (219-359km) on the older NEDC cycle depending on configuration.
Regardless of battery capacity, the Ducato Electric will be powered by a 90kW/280Nm electric motor, with a top speed limited to 62mph (100km/h).
The company adds the electric van should appeal to professionals “working in specific areas” that are “well placed to be early adopters of this technology”.
Various pilot programs with “large companies” will be conducted to “identify all specific uses and demands which in turn assists with individual customisation and configuration”.
With the Ducato Electric, Fiat also aims to focus on the total cost of ownership to better cater to its commercial customers.
Further details of the Fiat Ducato Electric will be revealed in the lead-up to the new model’s 2020 on-sale date. Stay tuned.
Speaking with CarAdvice last month, an FCA spokesperson said: "At this stage, we're not in a position to comment on local availability of the Fiat Ducato EV".
