Stellantis Pro One unveils the second generation of its updated, fully connected electric van

08 Nov 2023
  • What are the specifications of the renewed and electrified compact, mid-size and large commercial vans from Stellantis?

With a focus on unparalleled capability, safety and versatility for business and professional customers, Stellantis today unveiled a full range of renewed and electrified compact, mid-size and large commercial vans – 12 vehicles in all – for the Citroën, FIAT Professional, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall brands as part of the Pro One strategic offensive for the Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business.

Stellantis and its brands are leveraging a full range of advanced electrified propulsion, safety, ADAS and connectivity technologies to provide a stress-free environment for drivers and a reliable business partner to commercial owners.

“This 2nd generation of zero-emission vans, in line with customer expectations and offering increased BEV autonomy, additional fuel-cell offer, 18 ADAS, full connectivity, and innovations such as ‘electric Power Take Off’, will reinforce even further our current leadership in BEV vans and in all van segments,” said Xavier Peugeot, Senior Vice President, Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business Unit.

Today, Stellantis is the undisputed leader in zero-emission propulsion in commercial vehicles in Europe, offering both BEV and fuel-cell options. The renewed commercial vehicle lineup brings with it a 2nd generation of zero-emission technologies, including in-house EV battery systems that deliver greater range with no compromise in capability.

The 2nd generation of BEV propulsion gives the new compact vans best-in-class range of up to 330 kilometers (205 miles). In the new mid-size BEV vans, battery packs offer 50 or 75 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy and up to 350 km (224 miles) of range. In the large van segment, a 110-kWh battery delivers best-in-class EV range of up to 420 km (261 miles). Additionally, fast charging at 150 kW will take the large van’s battery from 0 to 80% in less than one hour.

The improvements also extend Stellantis’ leadership in zero-emission hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion. A 2nd generation of hydrogen fuel-cell power in the mid-size vans, launching in mid-2024, adopts a Stellantis exclusive mid-power system and provides a segment record of up to 400 km (249 miles) of range. Hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion expands to the large vans in 2024 with the mid-power architecture, range up to 500 km (311 miles) 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 optimizes 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:

• New generation of human-machine interface (HMI) that enhances productivity and safety. Instrument clusters and center 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 our customer-centric renewal of our entire van lineup is no compromise – in range, capability, safety and connectivity,” said 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. Details will be released in the future.

Full details van updates are available from the brands at the following links:

• Citroën – Well-being on board with Citroën Advanced Comfort Seats. 

• FIAT Professional – Close to our customers with a dedicated network and innovative, ingenious, affordable and electric solutions.

• Opel – Focus on technology with high-tech lighting, including matrix headlamps.

• Peugeot – Distinctive and assertive design, refinement with the i-Cockpit, 100% electric.

• Vauxhall – Focus on technology with high-tech lighting, including matrix headlamps.

Latest project from CALLUM to make global public debut at Concours on Savile Row

CALLUM SKYE, the first own brand vehicle fully developed in-house by the British design and engineering business CALLUM, will be seen in public for the first time at Concours on Savile Row, London on 22-23 May 2024.

The pioneering, high-performance, all-wheel-drive, multi-terrain electric vehicle was announced in November 2023 to global critical acclaim. The first running prototype will be displayed outside Edward Sexton’s store throughout the free-to-attend event that celebrates the long history that car manufacturers and tailors share.

Engineered to offer an exhilarating and rewarding driving experience both on- and off-road, SKYE has been crafted to ensure the utmost capability, refinement and beauty for discerning adventurers. As an all-electric vehicle, it’s powered by a 42kWh battery with anticipated range of 170 miles, with the option to specify an ultra-fast charging battery for full charge in under ten minutes. Measuring 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, and weighing just 1,150kg, it boasts sportscar performance with 0-60mph achieved in under four seconds.

“The CALLUM SKYE is bold, beautifully engineered and crafted with refinement and craftsmanship. The same can be said for the world-leading bespoke tailoring that exists on Savile Row. We can’t wait to see and hear the reactions of event visitors who will be the first to see SKYE in person,” says David Fairbairn, managing director, CALLUM. “Compact, capable and extremely beautiful, we’re confident that this representation of the SKYE exterior will turn heads, as we invite those interested in commissioning a CALLUM SKYE to reserve their build slot.”
