New Fiat Professional Ducato van confirmed for early 2020 region launch

Europe's leading van regional debut to be followed by electric global launch later in the year

Fiat Professional’s new Ducato MY2020 will make its regional debut early in 2020, T&FME was told at its global launch in Turin.

The latest model of the Ducato was unveiled at a special press event in northern Italy last week and Fiat Professional describes it as its best-ever version of the best-selling business vehicle.

The Ducato was the undisputed European market leader for the fifth year running in 2018 and is number one in terms of sales in 12 different countries.

The new Ducato MY2020 unveiled last week included the Euro 6D engines and a new “9Speed” automatic transmission.

“This is a latest-generation torque converter, capable of best exploiting all the engine’s torque points. It is the best transmission in its category in terms of weight, guaranteeing reliability and durability along with driving satisfaction at all times,” claims Fiat Professional.

A completely electric version, which implements Fiat Professional technologies and supplements the Ducato Natural Power methane-powered version in the alternative fuels offering, will also be available during 2020.

“The Ducato Electric is being developed through an innovative pilot project, together with major selected clients to offer more appropriate solutions with no trade-off in terms of load and performance,” said Fiat Professional. “Last but not least, there is no shortage of the most advanced ADAS driving assist devices and a latest-generation infotainment system.”
