With one swooping move, Stellantis has launched 12 brand new electric commercial models across four of the ranges within its stable, all offering extended working ranges and high levels of connectivity.

The renewed and electrified compact, mid-size and large commercial vans for the Citroën, FIAT Professional, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall brands as part of the Pro One strategic offensive for the Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business.

Citroen Range

“This second generation of zero-emission vans, are built in line with customer expectations and have increased BEV autonomy, additional fuel-cell offer, advanced driver safety, full connectivity and innovations such as ‘electric Power Take Off’,” says Xavier Peugeot, Senior Vice President, Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business Unit.

The new compact vans have a range of up to 330 kilometres. In the new mid-size BEV vans, battery packs offer 50 kW/h or 75 kWh of energy and up to 350 km of range. In the large van segment, a 110 kWh battery delivers 420 kilometres. Additionally, fast charging at 150 kW will take the large van’s battery from 0% to 80% in less than one hour.

Opel's lineup

The improvements also extend to hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion. A second generation of hydrogen fuel-cell power in the mid-size vans, launching in mid-2024, adopts a Stellantis-exclusive mid-power system and provides up to 400 km of range. Hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion expands to the large vans in 2024 with the mid-power architecture, range up to 500 km and a refill time of five minutes.

Additional technologies include:

  • Regenerative braking system, activated via steering wheel paddles, taking into account vehicle weight and road dynamics to maximize energy recovery.
  • A heat pump in BEV compact vans optimises energy usage in cold and winter conditions to maximize vehicle range.

The driver is the focus of the renewed range of vans including the following technologies:

Fiat Ducato interior

  • New generation of human-machine interface (HMI) that enhances productivity and safety. Instrument clusters and centre displays are larger and configurable by the driver.
  • Dynamic Surround Vision uses exterior cameras that provide a wide view around the vehicle, an aid for navigating traffic and crowded streets.
  • Wireless connectivity, activated when the vehicle is delivered, keeps drivers informed and managers connected with their fleets in real-time. It enables available cost-saving service packs such as preventive maintenance, eco-drive coaching, EV routing and charge management. Over-the-air updates let vehicles evolve with their users.
  • In compact vans, a new Smartphone Station connects to a dedicated app enabling the mobile phone to become a control panel for the vehicle, including interaction with steering wheel buttons, making it a cost-effective way to upgrade the online experience.
  • In large vans, class-leading Level 2 assisted driving solution via the combination of Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go function, Lane Centering and Traffic Jam Assist. Also, a new generation of the internal combustion engine mates with an 8-speed automatic transmission for improved range and capability.
  • All-new commercial vans are equipped with full LED headlights for exemplary vision and safety.

“The essence of the customer-centric renewal of our entire van lineup is no compromise – in range, capability, safety and connectivity,” says Luca Marengo, Global Head of Product – Serial Life for the Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business Unit.

A 400V e-Power Take Off (ePTO) brings electrification across the range of commercial vehicles without compromising the vehicle’s payload. The ePTO draws its power from the installed traction battery instead of requiring a separate power source.


The Ram brand commercial vehicle product lineup will be reinvigorated in North America with the upcoming electrified van and pickups, including the Ram ProMaster EV by the end of 2023 and the Ram 1500 REV in late 2024. The future portfolio includes hydrogen fuel-cell technology.

The global announcement also did not give any further indication as to which one-tonner will be on the assembly line when the Stellantis factory opens in Coega in the Eastern Cape.
