Fiat claims battery innovation for E-Ducato LCV

Fiat claims battery architecture - multiple modules - allows battery modules to work independently of each other if required.

By David Leggett

Stellantis -owned Fiat says its new E-Ducato is the only light commercial vehicle (LCV) on the market with a parallel batteries set-up that allows it to continue in operation if one of its battery modules drops out.

The E-Ducato has three to five battery modules depending on the size of battery fitted. The 47kWh and 79kWh batteries both come with ‘Recovery Mode’ as standard.

Connecting the batteries in parallel means that the current flow cannot stop because the current is taken from each individual battery.

Fiat says the E-Ducato has a range of between 113 and 230 miles (WLTP City), depending on the variant. It is congestion charge and ULEZ-exempt.
