PSA Peugeot Citroen has revealed its next generations Expert and Jumpy (previously badged Dispatch in UK and Australia) light commercial vehicles ahead of their European debut.
Locally, the commercial vehicle offerings are being evaluated for Australian introduction.
Built on a brand-new vehicle base, the vehicle benefits from all the advantages of the modular EMP2 platform: compactness, weight reduction, efficient engine options, achieving as little as 133 g/km of CO2 , as well as quality.
It introduces innovative features to this segment such as hands-free sliding side doors, the modularity of the cab with Moduwork, Active Safety Brake, rear-view camera with VisioPark, and connected 3D navigation.
The new PEUGEOT Expert carries a maximum useful load of 1400 kg and is available in three lengths, from the new Compact version at just 4.60 m up to 5.30 m.
It is a van particularly well suited to urban journeys, with reduced height of 1.90 m. In terms of safety, it has the highest level in its category, achieving a 5-star rating in Euro NCAP tests.
General manager of Peugeot, Citroen and DS Australia, Kai Bruesewitz, said that the all-new light commercial vehicles are being considered for Australian introduction.
“Introduction of the next-generation Peugeot Expert and Citroen Dispatch are currently under study with PSA Peugeot Citroen, with these models part of a wider review of the PSA commercial vehicle portfolio in Australia,” said Bruesewitz.
“Both Peugeot and Citroen models bring with them significant level of innovation, specification and safety to the market; and if the business case is strong we believe the all-new light commercial would be a welcome addition to the Australian line-up.” Said Bruesewitz.
