You can order your Fiat Professional E-Ducato now and its priced from £47,675 after the Government Plug in Grant and excluding VAT, and has a range of between 113 and 230 miles (WLTP City*) depending on the variant.
The E-Ducato provides a choice between two battery sizes – 47kWh or 79kWh both batteries power a 90kW (122bhp) motor with 280Nm of torque at 12,000rpm. The 47kWh battery vehicle has a range of up to 146 miles (WLTP City*) and reaches a top speed of 62mph. Charging from zero to fully charged takes 145 minutes and can be charged via AC or DC.
The 79kWh battery has an extended range as would be expected compared to the 47kWh with a range of up to 230 miles (WLTP City*) and in this instance charging from Zero to 100% takes 240 mins and again it can be charged either via AC or DC.
As far as on-board chargers are concerned there’s both a 7kW (with 47kWh) and 11kW (with 79kWh) as well as a mode 3 charging cable.
Power and Re-gen modes
There are three driving modes options which help to extend the range, ‘Normal’ which optimises the balance between performance and economy, ‘Eco’ for an increase in the available range by restricting acceleration and shutting down the air conditioning system. Finally the ‘Power’ concentrates on providing the maximum power to the motor in all driving situations.
There is a ‘fourth Turtle mode’ which is activated when battery power reaches near-to zero percent it alerts the driver and activates a specific driving mode with strongly reduced performance to extend the remaining range.

Electric is cheaper to run
Fiat Professional believe the E-Ducato is cheaper to run than the equivalent diesel in fact according to their figures it offers real-world fuel savings of approximately £13,000 to a comparable diesel version running 95,000 miles, whilst servicing costs are over 40 per cent lower than a similarly sized diesel commercial vehicle.
