Fiat E-Ducato Dropside vs Vauxhall Movano-e Dropside
For an individual or business who is looking to transport plenty of cargo with ease, while also making the cargo easily accessible, a dropside is the van for you. The ingenious sides of the van drop down, allowing you to easily load and unload whatever you need from all angles. This is ideal if you want to quickly get things off your van and don’t want to waste time rummaging through a large space trying to access something pushed right to the back.
Electric vans are rising in popularity year by year, as they are great for the environment and still offer a great performance when comparing them to their diesel or petrol counterparts. They also allow you to enter clean air zones without charges, and are perfect for urban driving where stopping and starting a lot is needed.
Here at Van Sales UK, we have a great selection of electric vehicles available for you to purchase, but with so many options available, it can be hard to choose which one to go with. We’ve put together this guide comparing two popular models, the Fiat E-Ducato Dropside and the Vauxhall Movano-e Dropside.
The Fiat Ducato is one of the most popular vans in the world, frequently outselling many light commercial competitors. In 2019, the Ducato range was expanded to include the electric E-Ducato. The Movano is another popular van model from Vauxhall, which has followed up with the Movano-e in recent years.
Read on to find out a bit more about both of these vans.
The Fiat E-Ducato is a great ride that combines a lower centre of gravity with balanced steering to create a sleek and dynamic driving experience. Control how you drive with three selectable driving modes. Normal is intended for normal driving, while Power is ideal when on hills or carrying a heavy payload. Finally Eco is best for when you want to make the most of the engine and extend the driving range as much as possible. It even has a special automatic mode that will switch on when the battery becomes critical, allowing you an extra push to get to a charger.
Now we’re onto the Movano-e Dropside. It has a 90kW motor which is powered by either a 37kWh or 75kWh battery. This can give a speed of up to 75 mph with 122hp and 260 Nm of instant torque! This impressive engine will give you a range of between 72 and 139 miles, depending on the battery size you go with. It also has one of the largest payloads in the light commercial vehicle class, with a payload of over 200kg.
The interior of the Movano-e reflects the cutting-edge design of the engine. The gear stick has been replaced with a button to allow you to easily switch between driving modes and there is an infotainment display with a built-in navigation system and real-time traffic information. You can connect your vehicle to Vauxhall Connect and the MyVauxhall app. The app will allow you to access helpful information, such as nearby charging stations.
You can tell the E-Ducato is built for business, with a robust interior that has plenty of practical storage and a comfortable driving position. There is a tray for small things like keys, cupholders, a glovebox and a table that folds out of the middle seats. This table is perfect for working on the go, as you can easily position a laptop or papers on it. It has easy-to-read dials and the battery information is handily shown on a screen mounted on the A-pillar.
