The fate of the model became known the other day. In an interview with a British edition, the head of Fiat Professional, Richard Chamberlain, said that it would be extremely unprofitable to offer this pickup to customers.

The Italian company Fiat will no longer sell the Fullback pickup. This became known during the automobile exhibition of commercial vehicles in the English Birmingham. Fiat Professional head Richard Chamberlain told reporters at Auto Express that this model leaves the conveyor for two reasons. First, it is low sales, and secondly, the tightening of environmental standards in European countries.

Recall that since the launch of the Fiat Fullback pickup truck called perelitsovannoy version of the Mitsubishi L200. Then the Italian pickup differed from the Japanese only logos, wheels, front bumper and the original grille.

Over time, Fullback began to offer modifications that are not in the L200. Among them – Fullback Cross, for which the manufacturer has developed several exclusive shades.

With the introduction of Euro-6 diesel, Fiat not only had to abandon Fullback production, but also updated several of its models at once – Ducato, Talento, Doblo and Fiorino. All of them by September of this year will acquire new engines that meet all standards for emissions of harmful substances. A Fiat Ducato with the change of generations will receive a fully electric version.
