Fiat Professional’s all-electric E-Ducato has been crowned Best Large Electric Van for 2021 at DrivingElectric’s annual awards.
Judges praised the all-electric E-Ducato for its impressive driving range and best-in-class payload.
Kickstarting Fiat Professional’s foray into fully electric vehicles, the E-Ducato has a range of between 113 (47kWh battery) and 230 (79kWh battery) miles (WLTP City*).
The all-electric E-Ducato also delivers a payload of up to 1,885kg while maintaining the same best-in-class load compartment size as its ICE counterpart of between 10m3 to 17m3.
Due to the fully electric nature of the vehicle, it is also congestion charge and ULEZ-exempt, making it the perfect tool for businesses in both urban and suburban environments.
Richard Ingram, Editor, DrivingElectric, said: “Electric vans are big business now, and few come larger than Fiat Professional’s E-Ducato.
“Despite switching its diesel engine for a battery and electric motor, the E-Ducato still offers a strong payload, as well as an impressive range of up to 230-miles. Capable of far more than last-mile deliveries, the E-Ducato is the best Large Electric Van currently on sale.”
Richard Chamberlain, Head of Fiat Professional in the UK, said: “With class leading features, exceptional ride quality and innovative technology, the award pays tribute to all the hard-work the engineers have put into the development of all-electric E-Ducato.
“Understandably, we are delighted that DrivingElectric has named the all-electric E-Ducato as this year’s Best Large Electric Van.”
