New vans to debut at CV Show
Tuesday, February 06, 2007
With a slightly larger cargo area than its 206 Van predecessor and a marginally higher payload capacity, it will be up for grabs with a choice of three engines; a 70 bhp 1.4-litre HDi diesel, a 90 bhp 1.6-litre HDi diesel and a 75 bhp 1.4-litre petrol lump.
Peugeot's new 207 Van will be making its worldwide exhibition debut at the British Commercial Vehicle Show, to be held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, on 24-26 April.
Back at the exhibition after an absence of several years, Peugeot will also be displaying the latest Expert, including an example with a particulate trap. It's a technology that could become vitally important to van operators in the South East of England in particular if the planned London Low Emission Zone is extended to embrace light commercials from 2010 onwards as is proposed.
Other newcomers will include the long-awaited LDV Maxus chassis cab and a revised Toyota Dyna with a 108 bhp 3.0-litre D-4D diesel engine. Elsewhere, Lloyds TSB Autolease will be exhibiting a Volkswagen Transporter Sportline van equipped with a load area storage system and roof racking made from light, but strong, carbon fibre.
We will be posting a full show preview closer to the event, but in the meantime don't forget to pre-register for your free ticket. It speeds up entry on the day.
