E-Ducato, the zero-emission professional vehicle born from a customer-driven “Pilot Project”.
Throughout its 120-year history, Fiat Professional has always been a brand that “let the facts speak for themselves”, producing vehicles that are first and foremost work tools for growing the business. This tradition of excellence and proactivity is confirmed by E-Ducato, the first Fiat Professional vehicle 100% electric and 100% designed with our customers.
In fact, the E-Ducato was born as a “tailor-made” vehicle: before finalizing the product briefing, Fiat Professional gathered monitoring data for a whole year from 4,000 thermal Ducatos, whose control units, connected in real-time, allowed the different mission profiles to be identified in their actual application on the road.
This study phase was followed by the launch of a “Pilot Project” so complete and complex that it was unprecedented in the history of Fiat Professional. During the engineering development phase, a mini fleet of pre-series vehicles was produced and assigned to strategic customers before they were available on the market, allowing Fiat Professional to collect the electric and no longer thermal mode.
The new E-Ducato fleet bears a distinctive livery, combined with international partners who took part in the project such as Arcese, GLS, Lyreco, Mercitalia, EDF, Fraikin, CSB, Nippon Express and BT Fleet, to name a few. All leading companies, interested in combining the commercial side of their business and respect to the environment.
