PSA Teases New Peugeot, Citroen, And Opel/Vauxhall LAVs Aka Vans

Group PSA has announced new generations of the Peugeot Partner, Citroen Berlingo, and Opel/Vauxhall Combo Leisure Activity Vehicles (LAV).

Part of their ‘Push to Pass‘ plan, the three specific models will help the French automotive giant consolidate its leadership in the LAV segment in Europe.

All of them will be based on a modified version of the EMP2 platform, which serves as the foundation stone for several vehicles made by Peugeot, Citroen, Opel/Vauxhall, and Toyota. This move will allow the accommodation of “the latest generation of powertrains and driver assistance equipment”.

What PSA wants to say is that the new Peugeot Partner, Citroen Berlingo, and Opel/Vaxhall Combo, whose names haven’t been confirmed yet, will be identical beneath the skin. They will have the same boot volume, modularity, engines, transmissions, and technology features, and will come with seating for five or seven passengers.

However, their exterior designs will differ, as the three LAVs will get styling specific to each brand, as we can see in the teaser image that accompanies the announcement.

Following their presentation announced for “the days ahead”, they will be joined by utility versions in the coming months, and all of them will be assembled in Vigo, Spain, and Mangualde, Portugal.
