Stellantis Unveils Electric Commercial Vans
Stellantis unveiled a range of renewed and electrified compact, mid-size and large commercial vans for the Citroën, FIAT Professional, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall brands as part of the Pro One strategic offensive for the Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business.
“This second generation of zero-emission vans, in line with customer expectations and offering increased BEV autonomy, additional fuel-cell offer, 18 ADAS, full connectivity, and innovations such as 'electric Power Take Off,' will reinforce even further our current leadership in BEV vans and in all van segments,” said Xavier Peugeot, Senior Vice President, Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, in a statement.
Stellantis offers both BEV and fuel-cell options in zero-emission propulsion for commercial vehicles in Europe. The renewed commercial vehicle lineup of 12 vehicles adds a second generation of zero-emission technologies, including in-house EV battery systems that deliver greater range.
The second generation of BEV propulsion gives the new compact vans best-in-class range of up to 330 kilometers (205 miles). In the new mid-size BEV vans, battery packs offer 50 or 75 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy and up to 350 km (224 miles) of range. In the large van segment, a 110-kWh battery delivers EV range of up to 420 km (261 miles). Additionally, fast charging at 150 kW will take the large van’s battery from 0% to 80% in less than one hour.
The improvements also extend Stellantis’ leadership in zero-emission hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion. A second generation of hydrogen fuel-cell power in the mid-size vans, launching in mid-2024, adopts a Stellantis mid-power system and provides a segment record of up to 400 km (249 miles) of range. Hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion expands to the large vans in 2024 with the mid-power architecture, range up to 500 km (311 miles) and a refill time of five minutes.
The company is also maximizing energy recovery with its regenerative braking system activated via steering wheel paddles, which takes into account vehicle weight and road dynamics.
A heat pump in BEV compact vans optimizes energy usage in cold and winter conditions to maximize vehicle range.
A 400V e-Power Take Off (ePTO) brings electrification across the range of commercial vehicles without compromising the vehicle’s payload. The ePTO draws its power from the installed traction battery instead of requiring a separate power source.
