The new medium-size Fiat e-Scudo electric van

Fiat e-Scudo

DrivingElectric »

The Fiat Scudo name has been revived for a new medium-sized van, available to order from December 2021 and priced from £35,720 (CDN$61,000 / USD$47,300) before VAT in fully electric ‘e-Scudo’ form. If it looks familiar, that’s because it’s a near-identical sister model to the Citroen e-Dispatch, Peugeot e-Expert, Toyota Proace Electric and Vauxhall Vivaro-e – joint winners of DrivingElectric’s 2022 Best Medium Electric Van award.

As it shares drivetrain technology with those models, the e-Scudo gets a 134bhp electric motor and a choice of 50 or 75kWh batteries, for driving ranges of 143 and 205 miles respectively, along with 100kW rapid-charging capability for swift battery top-ups on the go.

Two main versions of the e-Scudo are being offered at launch: the short-wheelbase 50kWh battery model comes in the Tecnico trim and has an on-the-road-price of £35,720 before VAT, while the long-wheelbase 75kWh battery model comes in Business specification and is priced at £43,050 on the road, excluding VAT.

The Citroën, Fiat, Peugeot, Toyota, and Vauxhall electric vans share the same Stellantis mid-van platform and technology, and are equally responsible for raising the bar in their class.

You don’t need a driver’s license to drive a fully electric Opel Rocks-E on German roads

Opel Rocks-E, a fully electric vehicle that can be driven without a car license. Opel describes it as a SUM, sustainable urban mobility rather than a car and it’s aimed at 15/16-year-olds, similar to the Citroen Ami. It has a range of 75kms and a top speed of 25kph (16 mph).

The Rocks-e is available in three different versions, that mainly differ by their looks. In Germany, it can be purchased for less than €8,000 (CDN$11,600 / USD$9,000).

Lancia brand to be revived with new EV models

Automotive News Europe »

Napolitano has presented a 10-year plan to Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares to relaunch Lancia, based on three new models: the new Ypsilon in 2024, both hybrid and battery electric, and a compact crossover expected in 2026 followed by a compact hatchback in 2028, both full-electric models.

“Clearly volumes are important, but our targets are about profitability,” Napolitano said in an interview on Friday.

Lancia, which alongside Alfa Romeo and DS was grouped in the pool of Stellantis brands cooperating in the premium market, needed to continue on this high-end path, he added.

“We still need to work and need to look at a benchmark … which for us is Mercedes,” Napolitano said. “I don’t mean we want to fight against Mercedes, that would be naive, but that is an example of what we look at.”

While Alfa Romeo and DS are global brands, Lancia’s target is to move to Europe, initially targeting Germany and France, where electrification is moving faster, then adding countries including Spain, Belgium, Austria and the Nordics, he said.

CEO Linda Jackson says Peugeot will switch all European models onto EV platforms by 2030

Automotive News »

There will continue to be internal-combustion based models in Peugeot’s lineup for international buyers, Jackson added.

“As we move on to the new [Stellantis] platforms, STLA Small, Medium, Large, by 2030 in Europe all of our models will be electric,” Jackson told Automotive News Europe. “But I still have to make sure I maintain internal-combustion offerings for my international customers.”

Peugeot’s move would come five years ahead of the EU’s proposal to mandate only zero-emissions vehicles in 2035. A number of automakers have already announced they will be all-electric in Europe well ahead of that date.

Ford aims to be world’s #2 EV maker within two years, with annual production capacity of nearly 600,000

Paul Lienert / Reuters »

The automaker’s optimism stems from increasing demand for its next new EV, the Ford F-150 Lightning pickup, with retail reservations approaching 200,000, Lisa Drake, chief operating officer of Ford North America, said.

Reuters reported on Wednesday that Ford likely would be vying with Stellantis for third place in the EV race by 2025, behind Tesla and the Volkswagen Group, based on production forecast data provided by AutoForecast Solutions.

Speaking at an investor conference, Drake said Ford is working to vertically integrate more EV components, including power electronics and e-drives, at existing facilities that build parts for combustion vehicles – a modern take on founder Henry Ford’s pioneering work in building many of his own components.
