Take a close look at the FIAT Doblo – does it resemble anything? Well, of course, this is another “clone” of cars Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Rifter, Peugeot Partner, Opel Combo, Toyota ProAce City… Yes, enough! So, this is just another embodiment of the already known van model: cargo or passenger version, sliding side doors, 5- or 7-seater interior, length 4.4 or 4.75 m.
The technical part is also known. More interesting is the appearance of the electric version, which offers a battery of 50 kWh (up to 280 km WLTP) and an electric motor with a capacity of 100 kW (136 hp) with a torque of 260 Nm. Interestingly, the passenger version of the FIAT Doblo will be offered only with electric drive and will receive an additional letter “E” to its name. But cargo versions of the new FIAT Doblo van will also be available with petrol or diesel engines and MKPSH or AKPSH.
All the differences of FIAT are only in the design of the front of the body, as well as their own logos on the outside and in the cabin. After all, in general, the front panel has not changed in comparison to other “relatives”: a separately installed touch screen, 2-storey compartment “glove compartment”, a noticeable central protrusion under the lever MKPSH or selector switch of the automatic gearbox.
Other details of the interior are already familiar: three separate seats in the rear and IsoFix mounts, sliding doors can offer lowering glass. The maximum versions will receive 2-zone climate control and a projection display. There is an option – a roof with transparent sections and additional shelves.
Everything is like the “French”. Even the place of production is at the Stellantis plant in Spain. This is it, modern automotive globalization.
