The Fiat Scudo and Ulysse will make a comeback to the market next year, as both nameplates go into production at the historic Stellantis plant in Hordain, France. The Fiat MPV and Fiat Professional LCV will be available with either ICE or BEV powertrains.
The Scudo will be available in three configurations – Van, Combi and Cab with platform – to meet all professional transportation requirements. While Ulysse will be available with combinations from six to nine seats. Both vehicles are also based on the EMP2 platform, the modular nature of which makes it possible to meet specific needs in various markets.
Inspired by the success of their predecessors, the two new models will take the names Fiat Ulysse and Fiat Professional Scudo. Providing a boost to the range, both serve as zero-emissions solutions aimed at large families, the recreational vehicles market, chauffeured transportation, professionals, and outfitters.
Making a return to the French site, the Fiat Ulysse MPV was produced at Hordain between 1994 and 2002, and the Scudo from 1996 to 2012. The industrial complex will be the ‘cradle’ of the two new Fiat and Fiat Professional models, ready to meet the challenges of increasingly sustainable urban mobility.
The new models are both a response to the ongoing transition to zero-emissions mobility. Specifically for Scudo, with the rising use of light commercial vehicles in urban areas, it will make a significant contribution to reducing emissions in cities. Likewise, Ulysse will enable families to enjoy a more sustainable active lifestyle, benefiting from innovative high-tech devices, extraordinary levels of comfort and space at the top of their segment, and advanced safety features.
By 2030, Stellantis low-emission vehicles are expected to make up more than 70 per cent of sales in Europe and more than 40 per cent in the U.S., with investment of more than €30 billion by 2025 in electrification and software development.
Orders for the Fiat Professional Scudo will open to most countries by the end of this year and early 2022, while the Fiat Ulysse will be available by the first quarter of 2022.
Full specification and pricing information for Fiat Professional Scudo and Fiat Ulysse in the UK will be released towards the end of 2021.
