The model is 1.94 m high and 5.3 m long, allowing for an internal volume of 6.1 m³. Thus, it is possible to transport items up to 2.8 meters in length. The load capacity is up to 1.5 ton. The split rear door opens 180 degrees, while the side door is sliding: both are adapted for forklift loading.

The combustion versions of the new Fiat Scudo are assembled in Uruguay by the local company Nordex. They have a speed controller, central door locks, electric external mirrors, electric windows with one touch system, on-board computer, height and depth adjustments of the steering wheel, height adjustment of the driver’s seat and a 12v socket in the cargo compartment.

Among the safety items, there is a fatigue alert (a warning if the driver has been driving, without a break, for more than two hours at a speed of 65 km/h), ABS brakes, three airbags (for driver and passengers), electronic control stability), hill assist, front fog lights, daytime running lights. The cabin has several storage compartments, totaling almost 42 liters of capacity.

Fiat Scudo Cargo

Intended for carrying loads, this version does not have glass compartments on the sides, so the items stored in the compartment are not visible. A wall separates the cabin from the cargo bay. According to the manufacturer, the model can be used as an ambulance, mobile pet shop, hortifruti, mobile workshop, service station on wheels, store, etc.

Fiat Scudo Multi

The Multi version has glazed sides and leaves the factory approved as a cargo vehicle, but can also be adapted for transporting people. The family car configuration, with 8 seats, features high-end interior lining, reclining seats, air conditioning for all occupants and 850 liters of trunk.

Fiat Scudo Multi can also be adapted for different types of use, such as a flower shop or mobile office, among other options. The manufacturer says that it will approve specialized companies to carry out these transformations from October.

Motor

The Scudo is equipped with a 1.5-liter turbodiesel engine, which debuts in a Fiat. It develops 120 hp of power and 30.6 kgfm of torque. The transmission is a six-speed manual. Suspension is independent on all four wheels.

In accordance with current legislation, versions equipped with a diesel engine have a tank for AdBlue (equivalent to Arla 32, which is a mixture of water and urea): this feature treats exhaust gases and reduces the emission of pollutants.

Fiat Scudo consumption

The van’s fuel consumption is 12.4 km/l in the city and 11.9 km/l on the road, according to Inmetro’s Vehicle Labeling Program (PBE). These numbers guaranteed an A grade and the PBE’s Energy Efficiency Seal.

The fuel tank has 69 liters and, according to Fiat, gives the Scudo a range of approximately 800 km. The model also has a start/stop function, which helps to reduce fuel consumption.

The vehicle is equipped with an electric motor with 136 hp of power and 26.5 kgfm of immediate torque. The system also includes a 75 kWh Li-ion battery pack, 11 kW OBC three-phase. According to the manufacturer, fast charging, from up to 80% battery charge, takes 48 minutes.

There is also a regenerative braking function, which acts as a motor brake and allows to conserve or even partially recharge the battery. The Fiat e-Scudo is equipped with an e-drive mode selector, which offers three options: Normal (for the best compromise between autonomy and performance); Eco (to optimize energy consumption) and Sport (to prioritize performance).

In addition to having all the items of the thermal version, the e-Scudo also has a 7” multimedia center (with Apple Carplay and Android Auto), reverse camera and digital panel. It also has electric-hydraulic steering, electric parking brake, tire pressure monitoring system and rain and light sensors.
