Fiat announces ESP across entire van range

Fiat Professional has announced that ESP (electronic stability programme) is to be fitted as standard across the entire range of Ducato vans, chassis cabs, combis and minibuses.

Fiat say the introduction of ESP comes in anticipation of any possible changes to commercial vehicle legislation.

ESP is an important safety device, which uses information supplied by various sensors to check whether a vehicle is cornering safely or not. If the ESP computer believes the vehicle is going to skid, it brakes the appropriate wheel or reduces engine power.

ESP also incorporates a number of other technologies. These include:
  • Load Adaptive Control (LAC), which identifies the size of the load and the vehicle’s centre of gravity to enable the systems to work at peak effectiveness.
  • Hill Holder, which makes starting on slopes easier by holding the brake on momentarily after the driver’s foot has released the pedal.
  • Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA) increases braking pressure under emergency conditions.

Sebastiano Fedrigo, director, Fiat Professional UK says: “The addition of the important safety device, ESP, as standard on Ducato reinforces further Fiat Professional’s commitment to its customers.”
