Stellantis plant in Luton manufactures first FIAT van
The Stellantis plant in Luton has expanded its manufacturing portfolio with the start of production of the FIAT Professional Scudo light commercial vehicle. This production supports the strong demand and high order banks for the FIAT Professional Scudo further to its launch.
It is the first time that FIAT vehicles have ever been manufactured in the UK. The vehicles will be produced here in both right-hand and left-hand drive for UK and European markets. The FIAT Professional Scudo will continue to also be produced at Hordain, France where the battery electric e-Scudo version is manufactured for all markets.
Luton continues to build the internal combustion derivatives of the Vauxhall Vivaro, Opel Vivaro, Citroën Jumpy, Citroën Dispatch and Peugeot Expert LCVs.
Mark Noble, plant director at Stellantis Luton, said: “It’s great news for Luton Plant to start manufacturing the FIAT Professional Scudo, this means we now produce all of the Stellantis brands mid-sized light commercial vehicles, for both the UK and the European markets.”
