Fiat Doblò facelift

It is manufactured by Fiat's Tofaş subsidiary factory in Bursa, Turkey, in Brazil since 2002 and in Russia and Vietnam. Turkish models have an engine range that includes a 1.4-litre petrol, a 1.9-litre MultiJet, and a 16-valve 1.3-litre MultiJet.

In North Korea Pyonghwa Motors produces Doblò branded as its own name Ppeokkugi.[5]

The facelift version came in autumn 2005, and was restyled with modifications to the front and rear light groups, and the total design of the front part.

Brazilian Doblò[edit]

Launched in 2002 the Brazilian Doblòs were initially available with two 16-valve petrol engines, a 1.3-litre Fire and a 1.6-litre Torque. From 2004 to 2009, the only engine available in Brazil was an 8-valve 1.8-litre Powertrain, supplied by General Motors do Brasil. This engine was produced initially in a petrol version and later as flex fuel.

In 2003 Fiat Brazil introduced an off-road 4x2 version called Fiat Doblò Adventure, also with the straight-4 Powertrain 1800 cc engine. It has revised exterior look with bigger bumpers and mouldings and raised ride height 6 cm (2.4 in) and spare wheel on the rear.[6] In 2009, the whole Adventure line (Doblò, Idea, Strada and Palio Weekend) was equipped with a locking differential. The line was rebadged as Adventure Locker. Only in the 2010 model, the Brazilian Doblò and the Doblò Adventure were updated with the 2005 European facelift. Besides the 1.8-litre Powertrain, Doblò is now equipped with a 1.4-litre Fire flex engine.[7] In the 2011 model, the 8-valve 1.8-litre Powertrain engine was replaced by the brand new 16-valve 1.8 litre E-Torq engine, produced by Fiat Powertrain Technologies.[8]

  • a 43 kWh lead-acid battery pack, providing a range of 150 km (93 mi) in the urban duty cycle on a single charge; recharging takes 5–8 hours
  • 60 x 200 AH 3.6V lithium modules; Battery life: 1000 cycles at 80% DOD / 2000 cycles at 70% DOD

The vehicle uses a 30 kW (60 kW peak) motor from Ansaldo Electric Drives, that gives 120 km/h (75 mph) top speed.

On October 2, 2007, a 60 day demonstration of the All-Electric Fiat Doblo was begun. The Electric engine is powered by a custom 18 kWh Altairnano high performance NanoSafe(R) battery pack, traveled 300 kilometers (190 mi) in an urban delivery circuit. The custom battery pack was fully recharged in less than ten minutes a total of three times using AeroViroments' high voltage, 125 kW rated, rapid charging system. The vehicle will be driven an estimated total of 7,500 kilometres (4,700 mi) during the 60-day demonstration period, which translates to an annual equivalent use of 45,000 kilometres (28,000 mi).

Ram ProMaster City (2015-)[edit]

It is a version of Fiat Doblo from Ram Commercial Truck division for the North American market, set to be introduced in Q1 2015. The ProMaster City will be built in the same plant in Turkey as the Doblo and imported to North America. To circumvent the 25 percent import tariff imposed on light trucks, only passenger vans will be imported into North America, with cargo vans being post-import conversions. Unlike its Fiat counterpart, passenger versions of the ProMaster City will have solid metal panels instead of glass in its rear quarters. The 2.4 L Tigershark engine matted to the 948TE 9-speed automatic transmission will be the sole powertrain available for the ProMaster City.[19]
