Ducato goes electric

Fiat has lifted the lid on its Ducato electric, which will be launched in 2020.

The first full-electric Fiat Professional model, the Ducato was developed after the company completed an extensive research project into customers’ attitudes towards electric vehicles. The study found that 25 percent of customers are already ready and willing to go the electric route (this will obviously increase by 2020).

Fiat claims that the vehicle is best in class in many areas. It will offer a range from 220 to 360 km and different charging configurations. Speed will be limited to 100 km/h to optimise energy use while the vehicle boasts maximum power of 90 kW and maximum torque of 280 Nm. Load volumes from 10 to 17 m3, and a payload of up to 1 950 kg, are claimed to be best in category.
