FIAT has unveiled its new midsize electric van, the E-Scudo, which ranks immediately below the already well-known E-Ducato. This model is practically identical to its sisters from the Stellantis group (Citroën ë-Jumpy, Opel Vivaro-e, Peugeot e-Expert) and the Toyota Proace Electric, so the newcomer does not bring any novelty on the technical level.
The FIAT E-Scudo will be available in three lengths. The load capacity depending on the chosen model will be between 4.6 and 6.6 cubic meters. In addition, later on, a tourism variant called E-Ulysee will be added, a more refined model that will be aimed at those families looking for a large minivan.
It is interesting to note that, in addition to being able to carry a maximum payload of 1,000 kg, the electric van will also be able to tow up to 1,000 kg. An interesting point is that thanks to the use of the modular EMP2 platform, the electric versions of the Scudo do not lose load capacity compared to the thermal models, something that will be especially appreciated by professional customers.
The new model will be available with two battery packs (50 kWh and 75 kWh), both associated with a 136 hp (100 kW) and 260 Nm electric motor. Top speed will be limited in all cases to 130 km / h, while the maximum range will be 230 km WLTP with the small battery and 330 km WLTP with the large one.
The FIAT E-Scudo will have a maximum autonomy of 330 kilometers WLTP
Regarding the load, the Italian proposal will be able to reach 100 kW of power in direct current, recovering 80% of its autonomy in 30 minutes (version with the 50 kWh battery) or 45 minutes (version with the 50 kWh battery). 75 kWh). In alternating current, the vehicle will be limited to a maximum of 11 kW (three-phase)
The order book for the new FIAT Scudo will open in December, and although its final prices have not yet been announced, it is already known that it will be available with three trim levels (Easy, Business, and Lounge). In any case, it is to be expected that their rates will be similar to those of the Citroën, Opel, and Peugeot proposals.
