toyota proace 1

Commonality takes a new meaning with this particular triple play – they feature different faces and badges, but all three are essentially the same vehicle. Welcome the Citroen SpaceTourer, Peugeot Traveller and Toyota ProAce MPVs, which aside from their styling are underpinned by the same platform and technical features.

They are the result of the collaboration between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Toyota that began in 2012, the objective being to come up with a mid-size light commercial vehicle, shuttle and combi offering that would benefit from shared development and production cost optimisation.

Initially, the first Toyota ProAce that came about in 2013 was based on the current-generation Peugeot Expert and Citroën Jumpy, though it had been agreed at the start of the collaboration that the companies would develop the next-gen together.

The trio, which share common technical features, powertrains and equipment, will be be available in MPV versions for private use and in shuttle versions for business use. No specific details as of yet, but they’re all set to be shown in Geneva in March and will be launched into the European market sometime after that. All three vehicles will be produced at PSA Peugeot Citroen’s Sevelnord plant in France.
