The order books for Fiat's new battery-powered E-Doblo van are now open, with prices starting at £27,885 once the Government's plug-in van grant has been applied.
It comes with a 134bhp electric motor and a 50kWh battery, and will deliver up to 173-miles of range following a full-charge.
Fiat’s E-Doblo also supports Rapid charging at up to 100kW, meaning a 0 to 80% charge in around 30 minutes.
It is available in two lengths and two different configurations – Panel and Crew Cab.
The short wheelbase Panel van has a cargo volume of 3.3m³ and an external length of 4.4m, while the long wheelbase version has a cargo volume of 3.9m³ with a length of 4.75m.
Meanwhile, the Crew Cab – only available with a long wheelbase - possess a cargo volume of 3.5m³ and a length of 4.75m.
Both models come equipped with Fiat’s ‘Magic Mirror’ which uses two cameras – one under the right rear-view mirror and the other above the rear doors. They work to provide up to three different views which are displayed on a five-inch digital rear-view mirror, which Fiat says will help assist parking in tight spaces.
Interior tech includes a Head-up-Display, a digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, as well as an 8-inch infotainment display which works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Fiat has also added some advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) features, which include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist as well as Blind Spot Detection.
The E-Doblo is in addition to its diesel and petrol versions, and establishes Fiat as the latest player to compete in the competitive class of compact electric vans.
Rivals include the e-Berlingo from Citroen, the Peugeot e-Partner, as well as the Combo-e-Cargo from Vauxhall.
