Do you find it Joe deja vu? And for good reason, the Fiat Doblo is the fifth car developed on a joint basis by the Stellantis group. There was already a Peugeot Rifter, Citroën Berlingo, Opel Combo and the group’s brand partner model Toyota Proace City Verso.
What you have in front of you is the family version of the Fiat Doblo, which will have the same peculiarity as the other members of its family: it will only be offered in a 100% electric version. It will receive a 136 hp engine and a 50 kWh battery which promises a range of about 280 km.
Stellantis’ decision to limit the use of an electric vehicle typically intended for families may seem ridiculous. The fact is that it is caused by the share of carbon dioxide emissions that Europe imposes on each active brand on its territory. To meet this quota, the Stellantis brands had to “eliminate” sales of thermoelectric models, and in MPV cars the ax fell. But do you know any brand that specializes in crossbreeding that has no problem with stakes? Toyota, which will continue to offer internal combustion engines. If your family needs Berlingo petrol or diesel, you know what to do: buy a “Berlingo” from Toyota.
