Fiat E-Doblo

Fiat has announced pricing for the new E-Doblo. The Italian brand's entry into the compact electric van class is on sale now in two trim levels – Standard and Primo – with prices starting from £27,855, excluding VAT and with the government’s plug-in van grant has been deducted.

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), and 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 adaptive cruise control, 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.

Another optional extra is the ‘Magic Mirror’, which uses two cameras – one under the right rear-view mirror and the other above the rear doors – and can provide three different views, all displayed on a five-inch digital rear-view mirror to help make complicated manoeuvres safer, according to Fiat.

The E-Doblo is the smallest model in Fiat’s zero-emissions commercial-vehicle line-up, sitting below the medium-sized E-Scudo and the larger E-Ducato – the brand’s rival to the Ford E-Transit.
