Sevelnord to produce three new vans

Carmakers PSA Peugeot Citroën and Toyota have unveiled their newest vans:

  • The Citroën SpaceTourer
  • The Peugeot Traveller
  • The Toyota Proace

All three vehicles will go into production at the Sevelnord plant in Lieu-Saint-Amand in early 2016, and each model can be offered in two versions—private van and commercial shuttle.

Successful partnership

PSA Peugeot Citroën and Toyota launched their industrial partnership in 2012 with the goal of developing a competitive product. To succeed, the carmakers optimized development and manufacturing costs, investing a total of €80-90 million in the Sevelnord plant, mainly for body-in-white assembly.

Sales begin in 2016 after Geneva launch

After their official launch at the Geneva Motor Show, March 3-13, 2016, the three new vans will go on sale in spring 2016.
