Fiat E-Doblo compact electric van announced

Italian brand's commercial vehicle range expands with new model, available in panel-van and crew-cab configurations

Fiat E-Doblo

Fiat has become the latest brand to enter the compact electric van class, announcing a new E-Doblo model to join the larger E-Scudo and E-Ducato in its zero-emissions commercial-vehicle line-up.

The E-Doblo is a sister model to the Citroen e-Berlingo, Peugeot e-Partner, Toyota Proace City Electric and Vauxhall Combo-e Cargo, sharing their 134bhp electric motor and 50kWh battery for a 173-mile driving range on a full charge.

Maximum torque is 260Nm and top speed is 80mph, while a choice of Eco, Normal and Power driving modes allows the motor's output to be restricted in order to maximise range. Rapid charging is possible at up to 100kW, equating to an 80% battery charge in around half an hour.

Fiat will offer the E-Doblo in the UK in two configurations (panel van and crew van) in both short and long-wheelbase form. Both have a maximum payload of 800kg, while the long-wheelbase version has a maximum load volume of 4.4 cubic metres.

The long-wheelbase crew van E-Doblo also incorporates a moving bulkhead that allows the amount of rear passenger and cargo space to be adjusted according to your needs. All versions also allow items like power tools or a portable refrigerator to be powered by the van's traction battery.

Available safety equipment includes traffic-signal recognition, active safety braking, lane-keeping assistance and driver attention alerts, along with a head-up display and parking sensors, while a Grip Control system ensures optimal traction on snowy, muddy or sandy surfaces.
