The Ducato was first launched in 1981, and was the result of Fiat’s collaboration with PSA Peugeot Citroën, that resulted in the vehicle’s development starting in 1978. The vehicles were manufactured at the Sevel Val di Sangro plant in Atessa, central Italy, and at the Sevel Campania plant in Pomigliano d’Arco, Naples together with the similar Alfa Romeo AR6, Citroën C25 and Peugeot J5 versions.
The Peugeot J5 was sold as the Talbot Express in the United Kingdom (1986–1994). The collaboration of Fiat and PSA had earlier produced the Fiat 242 and Citroën C35 from 1974. This military specification example has recently been restored and is ready for its next custodianship.
