Just as Citroen has the full line-up of Dispatches available, sister brand Peugeot is now marketing the full line-up of Experts, including the Expert Long. Dispatch and Expert are fundamentally identical aside from some styling differences and their badges.
The new Expert Long Crew Van is getting a particularly positive reaction says Peugeot head of business sales, Louise Neilson. "It can carry up to six people and its payload capacity is well over a tonne," she points out.
The electric Partner is being well-received too she says and like Citroen's battery Berlingo has gone on sale in bigger L2 guise. "We're seeing a real resurgence in interest and I definitely believe there is some potential for sales growth," she states.
Later this year Peugeot is likely to roll out a ready-to-go-work line-up of bodied vehicles similar to Citroen's Ready-to-Run range, with tippers, dropsides and Lutons all figuring highly.
"We do a lot of bespoke conversions but we need to have some off-the-shelf products too," she says.
