SolarEdge’s e-Mobility division has been selected by Fiat to supply full electrical powertrain units and batteries for the Italian automaker’s new E-Ducato light commercial vehicle.
SolarEdge’s e-Mobility division is new for the company, having arrived with the company’s 2019 acquisition of S.M.R.E Spa. Prior to the acquisition, S.M.R.E Spa had more than 15 years of experience developing end-to-end e-mobility solutions for electric and hybrid vehicles. Its technology can be found in motorcycles, commercial vehicles, and trucks.
Fiat’s E-Ducato vehicle has been in development for more than four years, and will be configured around three chassis models and two battery module configurations. The configurations consist of three battery modules with 47 kWh for a range of roughly 143 miles, or five modules with 79 kWh and a range of roughly 224 miles.
The vehicle also offers four electric charging options: standard AC charging, AC quick charging, AC quick+ charging, and a DC fast charge. All models equipped to continue to drive and operate normally in the event of a module failure.
Fiat released a promotional video for the new E-Ducato on YouTube.

Looking them up the batteries are 20lb/kwh vs others in the 15lb/kwh range now and motors with lower/4500 rpm making them heavier/kw vs most are 10k rpm and up range..
These are a lot of things but state of the art isn’t one of them, more like 8-12 yr old tech..
