The Fiat Doblo is a panel van and mini multi-purpose vehicle first released at the 2000 Paris Motor Show. This was manufactured by Italian automaker Fiat and first launched in the Netherlands. Reception was optimistic during the Doblo’s first few years, and the Doblo continues to enjoy healthy sales all over the world.
The Doblo has had a lot of local editions in many countries in the course of its production. In Singapore, the Doblo is marketed as the Fiat Panorama and comes in 5- and 7-seater versions. In North Korea, the Doblo is known and marketed as the Ppeokkugi under Pyonghwa Motors. Brazilian Doblos meanwhile come in various engines, with a 4x2 off-road edition called the Fiat Doblo Adventure hitting the market in 2003. The latest model is a rebadged Adventure Locker with a fire flex engine and styled in a European flair.
The first generation Doblo has been named International Van of the Year in 2006 by a jury comprising 16 countries. The same generation also gave rise to an electric version with the help of Micro-Vett S.p.A.
The second generation Doblo is exclusively manufactured by the Turkish automaker Tofaş. An electric version was also explored by the Turkish company, and was announced in 2010.
