Stellantis, which currently owns 14 different automotive brands, has been electrifying its vans – which is really important to improve levels of urban air quality – the latest one being the Fiat E-Scudo. The E-Scudo is available with a 50kWh or 75kWh battery with an electric driving range of up to 205 miles.
The Scudo electric van is available in three configurations (Van, Crew Cab and Cab with platform) and three trim levels (SX, Tecnico and Business). The entire range is available in an electric version, from the van to the cab and crew van.
The E-Scudo has the same load carrying capability as the diesel version: a loading bay volume of 5.3m3 to 6.6m3 depending on the body style, a payload up to 1.4 tonnes, and a towing capacity of 1 tonne.
Despite the internal capacity, the E-Scudo is designed to be compact on the outside, being less than 5 metres long (5.3 metres for the Maxi version), and it’s only 1.9 metres high.
The Fiat E-Scudo Van can use 11kW three-phase workplace charging, and it can also rapid charge at up to 100kW, which should be able to deliver a 0-80% charge in 45 minutes.
There’s a head-up display as well as front and rear parking sensors, and the rear camera can deliver a top-view 180° image of the rear area. There are 14 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) features in total.
The Moduwork system transforms the passenger seat into a workstation and an extension of the load compartment, to transport items up to 4 metres long (Maxi version), and increases the volume by 0.5m3, to a total capacity of up to 6.6m3.
The Fiat E-Scudo Van is priced at £38,869 for the E-Scudo Van SWB Electric 136HP Auto 50kWh Tecnico MY22 and £49,825 for the E-Scudo Van LWB Electric 136HP Auto 75kWh Business MY22.
