The Sevel vans are a family of vehicles produced as a joint venture by PSA (Peugeot-CitroŽn) and Fiat. The Sevel name comes from Sociťtť Europťenne de Vťhicules Lťgers SpA (European Society of Lightweight Vehicles), the name given to the first collaboration between PSA and Fiat in 1978 that created Sevel Sur .
We must distinguish between the Sevel Nord and Sevel Sur factories. The Nord factory, near Valenciennes, France, is controlled by PSA, and assembles the MPV and light commercial range, while the Sur factory, in Val di Sangro , Pescara, Italy, is under Fiat management and assembles the mid-weight commercial range. The agreements to create the factories are separate.
After General Motors' takeover of the Fiat Group, it is not known for certain if the agreement that created Sevel will be held or not, even though a framework agreement for Sevel Sur was achieved in 2001 which extended the cooperation until 2017.
