Italy

The new 1500E was launched, at the Fiera del Levante in Bari. The main difference is the large boot, which is now accesible from outside and is also housing the spare wheel. Other changes includes the front bumper (strengthened) and the gear change lever moved to the steering wheel.
At the end of the summer came the 1100E with similar changes to the bigger 1500 - larger boot, new bumpers and gear change lever under the steering wheel. There is also a new gearbox with synchromesh on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear. The 1500 got that in the autumn last year. A van 1100 BLR Giardiniera is a new addition to the 'Millecento' family.
