In 1930 Alfa Romeo presented a light truck in addition to heavy LCVs based to Büssing constructions.[4] In the Second World War Alfa Romeo also built trucks for the Italian army ("35 tons anywhere") and later also for the German Wehrmacht. After the war, commercial motor vehicle production was resumed. In co-operation with FIAT and Saviem starting in the 1960s different light truck models were developed. The production of heavy LCVs was terminated in 1967.

In Brazil the heavy trucks were still built for a few years by Alfa Romeo subsidiary Fábrica Nacional de Motores under the name FNM. The last Alfa Romeo vans were Alfa Romeo AR6 and AR8, which were rebadged versions of Iveco Daily and Fiat Ducato. The company also produced trolleybuses for many systems in Italy, Latin America,[5] Sweden,[6] Greece,[7] Germany, Turkey and South Africa. Later, Alfa Romeo concentrated exclusively on manufacturing passenger cars.
