On Monday, Fiat took the wraps off its second-generation Fiat Doblo compact van, which will go on sale in Europe in mid-January. According to Automotive News, Chrysler Group LLC’s new Ram brand will get a version of the Fiat Doblo to compete with Ford’s new Transit Connect, which started selling in United States in July.
The Fiat Doblo is sold as seven-seat passenger vehicle or a panel van for small businesses. It has been sold in Europe since 2001. The model will join a large Fiat-based van to be sold in the United States by Ram, along with a restyled chassis cab model and light and heavy duty Ram vehicles.
Chrysler said it expects Ram sales to hit 415,000 by 2014, up from 280,000 in 2010.
