Ducato Electric will offer a choice of battery options for a total range of 220 to 360 km (NEDC cycle).

The Ducato Electric was conceived and developed on the basis of a specific, detailed study of customers’ real use of their vehicles, involving a year of data gathering, which confirmed that more than 25% of the market already has a “BEV Attitude” in terms of use, routes, dynamics and performances, and is therefore ready and waiting for a mobility change.

I do not know what the cost of this vehicle is but the total cost of ownership may be close to break even compared with a similar diesel vehicle as apparently BE transit buses have already hit the break even point. Once this happens, there will be a reasonable demand for these vehicles. They probably make more sense than BE private cars for reducing fossil fuel consumption.
