A fresh report out of the United Kingdom suggests Fiat will axe the Fullback bakkie from its line-up thanks to lacklustre sales and stricter emissions regulations in Europe.

It’s not yet clear whether Fiat Professional plans to continue offering the bakkie in other markets, such as South Africa (where the range currently comprises three double-cab derivatives and four single-cab variants).

According to Auto Express, the Fullback will soon disappear from the Italian automaker’s range.

"A combination of factors has led to the Fullback no longer being on sale," Richard Chamberlain, the head of Fiat Professional in the UK, told the publication.

"Low sales volumes and the forthcoming Euro 6 diesel emissions legislation meant it was no longer viable for Fiat Professional to offer the Fullback," he added.

The Fullback is, of course, based on the Mitsubishi Triton, which recently benefited from a comprehensive facelift. In the first three months of 2019, Fiat sold just 39 units of its Fullback in South Africa, while Mitsubishi registered 102 units of its Triton.
