Fiat has unveiled the new Scudo, announced at the end of October, and at the same time opened the order books. The new Scudo is the second commercial vehicle from Fiat Professional, after the Ducato, that is also available in an electric version.
The powertrain of the E-Scudo BEV variant is well known from other Stellantis models: the e-motor produces 100 kW and can be combined with either a 50 or 75 kWh battery. With the larger battery - which cannot be ordered with the short wheelbase of the L1 version - the WLTP range is up to 330 kilometres. The DC charging power of up to 100 kW and the charging times to 80 percent of 30 minutes for the small battery and 45 minutes for the large battery are also in line with familiar Stellantis models. As standard, the AC charging power is 7 kW, but an 11 kW onboard charger can be ordered as an option.
The body also follows the familiar models: the short L1 version is 4.60 metres long, the L2 is five metres long and the L3 is 5.30 metres long. The height of all versions is 1.90 metres, which means that the Scudo can drive into most underground garages and storage rooms. The payload is up to one tonne, as is the towing capacity. The load volume is exactly the same as that of the combustion models: 4.6, 5.3 or 6.1 cubic metres, depending on the body version.
The Scudo also adopts the "Moduwork" system: if required, the passenger seat can be converted into a workstation for two people, or a flap in the partition wall can be used to enlarge the load compartment, allowing the L3 version to load objects up to four metres long.
