PSA has released all the details about their new commercial vans, the Citroen Jumpy and the Peugeot Expert.
Based on the company’s new modular EMP2 platform, both new models are scheduled to go on sale in Europe from June 2016.
Offered in three different body lengths (4.6m-4.95m-5.3m), the new Peugeot Expert and Citroen Jumpy offer the same options to professionals as with their sister car, the new Toyota Proace Van.
“The new Peugeot Expert and Citroën Jumpy are designed to win market share and help us reach the objectives of our profitable growth plan,” said Carlos Tavares, PSA’s Chairman.
Featuring innovations like hands-free sliding side doors, a new modular system for the cargo space, Active Safety Brake and connected 3D navigation using a voice-controlled tablet, the new LCVs want to continue leading their market segment in Europe.
The new platform also means a lighter construction of between 100kg and 150kg, depending on the engine. Speaking of which, the new Citroen Jumpy and Peugeot Expert are going to be available with 5 diesel engines ranging from 95hp to 180hp and three gearbox options (manual, robotized manual and automatic).
