Fiat E-Ducato Battery and Charging
The E-Ducato comes with a choice of either a 47kWh or 79kWh Lithium-Ion battery using NMC chemistry. The 47kWh battery is coupled to the 90kW (122hp) motor with 280Nm torque . Both batteries have AC and DC capability with a charging time from zero to fully charged in 2 hours 25 minutes and four hours respectively. The 47kWh has a 7kW on-board charger and the higher powered 79kWh has an 11kW on-board charger. The ability to DC charge is available at a cost of £2995+VAT.
Fiat E-Ducato Range
The E-Ducato comes with a choice of either a 47kWh or 79kWh battery. The 47kWh coupled to the 90kW motor provides a range of 120miles under WLTP City standard, which is derived from two testing sub-cycles the low and medium testing. and 78 miles on the combined cycle. The 79kWh battery pushes this up to 192 miles on the city and 148 miles on the combined cycle. If we take all the models and two battery options the ranges cover between 99 to 192 miles.
E-Ducato Dimensions and weights
Payloads on the E-Ducato model range covering vans and chassis cabs go up 1950kgs and load area cargo cubic capacities from 10 to 17. More specifically the van has three lengths ( 5413mm,5998mm and 6363mm) and two roof heights ( 2569mm and 2814mm). This results in internal load lengths from 2670mm to 4080mm and an internal width of 1870mm.
E-Ducato Pricing and Warranty
Pricing for the new Fiat Professional E-Ducato starts at £47,675 excluding VAT but after the Government Plug-In Van Grant. The battery warranty is ten years or 150,000 miles whichever comes first and does include bi-directional charging. The rest of the vehicle has a five years warranty, five years roadside assistance and five years servicing.
