The new all-electric Fiat E-Ulysse marks the brand's comeback to the MPV sector in Europe. The Fiat E-Ulysse, the successor to the same-named model sold until 2010, marks a further step in the brand's electrification process, which began with hybrid drives and accelerated by introducing the new Fiat 500e electric car. The new Fiat E-Ulysse is suitable for passenger transport, whether for families or a shuttle for hotel guests.
The new Fiat E-Ulysse combines all of the benefits of electric propulsion, including prospective financial incentives and preferred parking, with a quiet engine. Additionally, the electric minivan is defined by its car-like handling and small proportions. The new Fiat E-Ulysse is also suitable for parking in underground garages. With the interior's modular design and seating capacity of up to eight people, these features make the new Fiat E-Ulysse a suitable vehicle for families.
The new Fiat E-Ulysse electric minivan has two battery capacities available, 50 kWh or 75 kWh, to provide the optimal solution for the user profile. The 75kWh battery offers a range of up to 329 kilometers (WLTP cycle). This battery enables enough mobility both within and beyond the city. The new Fiat E-Ulysse electric car has a top speed of 130 km/h. The electric drive produces 100 kW (136 hp) and has a maximum torque of 260 Nm.
Standard equipment includes a 100 kW rapid charging system capable of charging the battery to 80% in just 45 minutes; an 11 kW charger is available for use at home or public charging stations.
The new Fiat E-Ulysse embodies the Italian culture of hospitality. This vision is evident in interior design. It is comparable to a living room, where you may bring family and friends, as well as colleagues and clients.
The new Fiat E-Ulysse has an innovative ultraviolet light-based air purifying technology (UV-C). The technology enhances indoor cleanliness by utilizing UV-C light to eradicate nearly all microorganisms. Due to the inbuilt battery, the disinfection module has about four hours of battery life. The simple-to-use gadget is portable, allowing for comfortable use outside the car. Additionally, the two-zone air conditioning system with a circulator and separate controls for the driver, front passenger, and rear passengers enhances onboard comfort.
The panoramic glass roof, which comes standard on the new Fiat E-Ulysse LOUNGE equipment variation, floods the interior with light and provides passengers with an unimpeded view of their surroundings. The glass roof encloses two panels, each 40 by 100 cm in size, totaling about one square meter. Both glass surfaces may be darkened with a sliding curtain to provide privacy or block out excessive light.
The air conditioning diffuser is between the two glass roof panels. It has six independently adjustable air vents and an integrated temperature and power control, ensuring optimal comfort throughout the car. In addition, two LED strips provide ambient illumination that is both pleasant and soothing throughout the vehicle.
The new Fiat E-LOUNGE Ulysse's equipment variation enables the creation of an entire living room on four wheels, complete with two comfy individual back seats and a convenient folding table. This space is suitable for longer family trips or business meetings.
The extra-large seats, adjustable armrests, and many storage choices contribute to the comfort. In addition, the double folding table folds up to provide a substantial useable surface and is stowed between the second and third rows of seats when not in use.
The new Fiat E-rear Ulysse's seats are set on rails in both interior configurations - with seven or eight seats in three rows. They can be moved, modified, or eliminated with a simple hand movement. The cabin is readily reconfigurable to accommodate a variety of passenger and luggage transit duties. The eight-seat Fiat E-Ulysse is available in twelve different configurations. The seven-seater can be configured in sixteen different ways. The new Fiat E-Ulysse is also a perfect electric vehicle for professional usages, such as group excursions or recreational activities, with nearly limitless interior configuration options. For example, when on vacation, the new Fiat E-Ulysse provides adequate room for packing skis, bicycles, or surfboards.
The new Fiat E-Ulysse is a minivan with a car's DNA. The chairs provide exceptional comfort for passengers on lengthy travels. The high seating position provides an optimum view of the road for the driver. In addition, passengers have easy access to the cabin because of the short side skirts.
The new Fiat E-Ulysse electric minivan with all-wheel independent suspension and progressive-response chassis springs offer a secure grip on the road and a high degree of comfort in all situations.
The Fiat E-Ulysse has a trunk up to 4,200 liters or 4,900 liters in the extended variant. There is still 900 or 1,500 liters of baggage space available when all seats are full. The cargo space can accommodate items up to 3.1 meters in length (3.5 meters in the extended version).
The new Fiat E-Ulysse is equipped with cutting-edge electronic driver assistance systems (ADAS), which aid the driver in avoiding possible hazards. Depending on the equipment type, it may be included as standard or optional.
As standard, the traffic sign recognition system recognizes traffic signs, displays them on the central instrument display, and, if necessary, provides a speed restriction. The lane departure warning system alerts the driver if the vehicle seems to abruptly change lanes. The blind spot helper monitors the outside mirrors' so-called blind spot. If another vehicle is nearby, a light indicator on the exterior mirror alerts the driver to the potential risk.
The collision warning system analyzes the surroundings around the car and alerts the driver to the possibility of colliding with other vehicles or pedestrians. Additionally, the Active Emergency Brake Control initiates emergency braking if the driver fails to react or reacts poorly to a risk.
For example, the reverse camera presents a 180° picture onto the dashboard display to assist with parking. In addition, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) has been enhanced to incorporate a traction control system that may be adjusted (Grip Control). This feature regulates the drive in one of four modes: asphalt, snow, sand, or mud, depending on the road surface.
Even in its most basic configuration, the Fiat E-Ulysse electric minivan is equipped with various standard features. It has 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, adjustable and detachable seats, and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB connection, and smartphone mirroring, among other features. In addition, the LOUNGE trim level adds electrically operated side doors and tailgate, as well as ambient lighting throughout the cabin, xenon headlights, and leather seats that can also be turned to form a living room arrangement.
Ordering for the Fiat E-Ulysse electric minivan is anticipated to begin in the coming days. The Fiat E-Ulysse MPV is manufactured in Hordain, France.
