Fiat launches full MulitJet van range

The Italian manufacturer builds small, efficient vans for use in city environments and the latest range features its award-winning MultiJet technology.

The former International Engine of the Year will appear in the compact Doblo Cargo, Fiorino Cargo and Punto Evo Van, the model based on the car of the same name.

All three of the vans will use the 1.3-litre diesel engine delivering 90bhp and CO2 figures as low as 126g/km.

The Fiat Fiorino van with MultiJet technology is a UK first at the show after the range was updated to comply with new European emissions regulations.

The new model boasts Start&Stop and a diesel particulate filter to lower fuel consumption and diesel particulates – or soot – emissions respectively. CO2 emissions in the new Fiorino are as low as 113g/km, making it one of the lowest emitting vehicles in Fiat’s range.

Gerry Clarke, Director of Fiat Professional UK, comments: “The Fiat Professional range of award-winning vehicles has been enjoying a high level of interest from customers and the media, and this is set to continue with the introduction of new environmentally friendly Euro 5 engines in the Fiat Fiorino van, Scudo and Punto Evo Van.”

However, the technology will also be showcased on Fiat’s larger van range, including the Scudo and Duacato vans. These will use a more powerful 2.0-litre MultiJet engine developing 135bhp.

The MultiJet engines won the International Engine of the Year Award in 2005, when they were described as: "a very smooth and quiet diesel application that offers fine driveability and performance, combined with economy”
