New Fiat e-Scudo medium-sized electric van confirmed for early 2022

The Fiat Scudo name is being revived for a new medium-size van, which will be available with fully electric power already seen in Citroen, Peugeot, Toyota and Vauxhall sister models

Fiat e-Scudo

The Fiat Scudo name is being revived for a new medium-sized van that's set to join the Italian brand's line-up in late 2021 or early 2022. It'll be available with both diesel and pure-electric power; the latter will be called the 'e-Scudo' and will be a sister model to the Citroen e-Dispatch, Peugeot e-Expert and Vauxhall Vivaro-e, as well as the Toyota Proace Electric.

Panel-van, crew-van and platform-cab variations of the e-Scudo will be offered, and it'll be built at the same French factory that produced the previous Fiat Scudo van between 1996 and 2012. Exact UK pricing and specification information for the e-Scudo is set to be confirmed before the end of 2021, with orders opening around the same time or shortly afterwards. A passenger version seating up to nine, called the e-Ulysse, will also be available.

No precise technical details or range figures have been confirmed for the e-Scudo yet, but it's certain to share the technology used by the Citroen, Peugeot, Vauxhall and Toyota models mentioned above. That means a 134bhp electric motor and most likely a choice of 50 and 75kWh battery packs for driving ranges of 143 and 211 miles respectively, along with 100kW rapid-charging capability for swift battery top-ups on the go.
