-Lower payload than diesels

Heavily revised and with new safety equipment and a much-improved cabin, the already excellent Fiat e-Doblo is a superb electric van. But does it suit your requirements? Read our comprehensive Fiat e-Doblo review to find out.

The latest version of the Fiat Doblo shares its bodywork with the Peugeot e-Partner, Citroen e-Berlingo and Vauxhall Combo Electric, as well as joint venture partner Toyota’s Proace.

And now, it has seen an impressive boost in electric range that makes it even more of a convincing proposition for those considering the switch away from diesel power.

In electric form it now delivers a 205-mile range up from 171 miles (WLTP mixed cycle). Some of that increase is down to a new regenerative braking system, which can be activated at three different regeneration levels using steering wheel-mounted buttons, while the 52kWh battery pack offers a greater capacity than the old model did.

The latest Fiat e-Doblo is also offered with CCS rapid charging at a maximum speed of 100kW - twice that of its predecessor, allowing a 0-80% charge in around 30 minutes on a 100kW charger. The onboard charger, meanwhile, is a 7kW unit compatible with most home sockets, while a three-phase compatible 11kW charger is offered an option.

There are two body lengths, a crew cab option in the larger of the two and two trim levels, known as Standard and Primo, the latter of which is also offered as a crew cab with flat-folding seats and a pop-up bulkhead to increase load space when they’re not in use.

In terms of the styling, there’s a new-look front end featuring Fiat’s revised retro-look new badge and new healamps, as well as some more subtle tweaks at the rear.

All versions now come with a smartphone station with inductive charging and DAB radio, Bluetooth and two USB connections.

Safety equipment includes driver attention alert, advanced emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, cruise control and rear parking sensors, while the Primo model gets Stellantis Group’s Dynamic Surround View, which projects images from two cameras to a rear-view mirror.

Power comes from a 136PS electric motor with 270Nm of torque, and offers a lively driving experience. The Fiat e-Doblo’s payload of 780kg and towable weight of 750kg are seen as benchmarks in the segment, but they’re still not as good as diesel models.

The standard warranty runs for three years or 100,000 miles, while the battery comes with an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty. An extended warranty is available under Fiat’s 555 Peace of Mind deal. This brings you five years of warranty, five years of servicing and five years of roadside assistance. It is an optional extra, though.
