In addition to its diesel and petrol versions, the Doblo debuts in the world of e-mobility with an electric motor capable of guaranteeing efficient, smooth and responsive driving up to 175 miles, courtesy of the van’s 50kWh battery.
The E-Doblo also boasts rapid DC charging capabilities as standard, allowing for 80% charge to be reached in 30 minutes.
Technology and Safety – E-Doblo and Doblo boasts 18 ADAS features
Both the new Fiat Professional E-Doblo and Doblo feature new connectivity, infotainment and safety technologies that help drivers overcome all the daily challenges and obstacles they may face.
New E-Doblo and Doblo come jammed packed with 18 level two autonomous advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The stand-out safety feature on both products is the Magic Mirror, which thanks to two cameras – one under the right rear-view mirror and the other above the rear doors – ensures the driver has three different views (displayed on a five inch digital rear-view mirror) to perform the most complicated manoeuvre in the safest possible fashion.
The E-Doblo and Doblo also benefit from a new Head-Up Display, ensuring that drivers can monitor all key driving information without taking their eyes off the road. With its digital transparent panel, drivers will be able to drive safely and monitor key information such as speed, their navigation status and receive signal warnings including speed limits and fuel consumption.
Additional ADAS safety features include Adaptive Cruise Control; adapting the vehicle’s speed to that of the vehicle in front, Lane Keeping Assist; warning the driver if a longitudinal lane marking on the ground is accidentally crossed, and Blind Spot Detection; informing the driver if another vehicle is present in the van’s blind spot.
Both vans are available with a safety pack as standard which includes advanced emergency braking, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition.
The New E-Doblo is equipped with a 100kW electric motor and a 50kWh battery which allows up to 175 miles in the WLTP cycle.
It also offers charging capabilities up to 100kW, which allows the van to reach 80% charge in just 30 minutes.
The driver can also choose between different driving modes: Normal, Eco, Power and B-Mode.
Each mode modifies the vehicle’s driving response, enhancing, and optimising vehicle performance, depending on the job at hand.
Normal is recommended for driving under regular, everyday driving conditions. Eco improves the van’s economy, extending the van’s range. Power improves the peak power of the vehicle and should be used when the van has a heavy load, while B-Mode allows for maximum battery regeneration.
In recognition of their flexibility, the New E-Doblo and Doblo and are 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.
