New Fiat Doblò after 12 years
Fiat has had the current Doblò in the range since 2010. After the acquisition by the Stellantis group, a successor based on Peugeot Partner and Opel Combo is finally announced. If desired, he can also drive exclusively electrically like his colleagues.
A generational change is awaited for Fiat’s Doblò series of vans. Instead of a real Fiat, as before, the new edition will be a well-known model of the Stellantis shelf, which is already available in the same design as the Peugeot Partner and Opel Combo. Like its brothers, the Doblò, available in two lengths as a passenger car and as a commercial vehicle, will also be available with a combustion engine and electric drive.
For the car variant, electric is the only driving option. As with identical models from other Stellantis brands, a 136hp electric motor provides propulsion, the 50kWh battery is said to allow a WLTP range of up to 280km. As an alternative to electric traction, the Cargo-Doblò will be available with a 1.5-liter 100hp or 130hp turbodiesel and a 110hp 1.2-liter petrol engine.
One ton for the internal combustion engine, 800 kilograms for the E-Doblò
With a long wheelbase, the transporter variant can deliver a cargo volume of up to 4.4 cubic meters. Access to the rear is provided by a vertically split tailgate and a sliding side door. The payload is one ton for the versions with internal combustion engine, in the E-Doblò it is 200 kg less. The electric van variant can be equipped with a power socket in the load compartment, which can be used to operate utilities such as a refrigerator with power from the traction battery.
The auto version of the Doblò will have two sliding doors, a one-piece tailgate and five seats. The three rear seats can be folded down individually to expand the trunk. Additional storage compartments can be found in the roof if the Magic-Top with extra windows is ordered. Other equipment options for the Doblò car include a head-up display, a folding rear window or a digital rearview mirror.
Fiat has not yet provided a market launch date or price for Germany. However, twin models such as Opel’s Combo provide guidance: here the cargo version with conventional fuel starts at around € 23,000, for the passenger car version with electric drive it starts at around € 43,000.
