The Fiat Ducato is a large van produced by Fiat. The Fiat Ducato is the same van as the Citroën Jumper and the Peugeot Boxer, which are all very popular vans to convert into motorhomes. All these models are produced at the same Fiat factories in Italy and Brazil, and under licence in Elabuga (Russia) by Russian automobile company Sollers (formerly Severstal Auto) since 2008. Sollers also produces UAZ off-roaders, Ssangyong (South Korea) and other Fiat platforms under licence. Russian conglomerate Severstal divested the division Severstal-Auto in 2001, and the company changed its name to Sollers in 2008.
