The production of Fiat-branded commercial vehicles is ready to move into Russia. Of one model in particular: Fiat Scudo. We recall that Stellantis, the company that controls Fiat, owns a 70% stake in an automobile plant in the Russian city of Kaluga, and is planning to assemble one of its most important commercial vehicles there. The marketing of the units built there will not be limited to Russia: the Fiat Scudo units produced in that plant will come exported to other markets.

According to the latest rumors reported by Reuters, the production of Fiat Scudo at the Kaluga site (30% of which is owned by Mitsubishi) will be launched in 2022. A move that was in the air: Stellantis has long claimed that it was transforming the Kaluga plant into an export hub, thanks to which it would supply engines and cars in Europe, Latin America and North Africa. We recall that the production of Fiat Scudo took place from 1996 to 2016, when by virtue of an agreement between FCA and Renault it was replaced by the new Talento, a slightly modified version of the third generation of the Renault Trafic.
