What new vans are coming soon to the UK?

The new Volkswagen Caddy Cargo, which arrived in the UK in early 2021, will soon face renewed competition from the next-generation Renault Kangoo. The Kangoo will once again form the basis of a new Mercedes-Benz Citan and Nissan NV250, too. Ford will also launch a new small van in 2021, but this will be based on the latest Caddy as first fruits of 'Project Cyclone', the new alliance between Ford and VW to share development and manufacturing costs.

The small van sector is pretty lively right now.

As for larger vans, there's a potentially disruptive new entrant called the Maxus Deliver 9. Maxus is the new name for LDV, and the Deliver 9 replaces the aging V80 with a design that's bang up-to-date (if somewhat derivative of the Ford Transit).

Meanwhile the Vauxhall Movano is to become a variant of the Fiat Ducato, just like the Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay. And although an all-new Stellantis group large van is also in the works that would replace all four of these, the existing Ducato has been thoroughly updated for 2021 as well.

Other new LCVs to look out for include a commercial 4x4 version of the latest Dacia Duster SUV, which is set to go sale in 2021 as one of the cheapest vans of any type you can buy in the UK.

List of new vans on sale soon

These are the new vans we're expecting in 2021 and beyond.

2021 Volkswagen Multivan (T7)

New vans coming soon: 2021 VW Multivan

Volkswagen unveiled the new T7 in June 2021, but in a move that will surprise some, the new VW Multivan - as the model is called - is a passenger carrying vehicle alone, joining the range only as a replacement for the Caravelle. There is no T7 Transporter.

Instead, the T6.1 carries on alongside the Multivan, which - despite the name - is based on a car platform. An all-new VW Transporter is coming, but will be based on the same platform as the next-generation Ford Transit Custom. Both of which we're expecting to see launched in 2023.

2021 Dacia Duster Commercial

New vans coming soon: 2021 Dacia Duster Commercial

If the Land Rover Defender Hard Top seems a bit expensive, here's the antidote - a commercial 4x4 version of the very budget Dacia Duster SUV.

Priced from under £12k, this is a similar concept, but without the fancy styling and lacking in some (well, most) of the off-road capability. The entry-level model doesn't even have four-wheel drive.

Still, there's a lot of choice in the range and it's cheaper than regular car-derived vans such as the Ford Fiesta Van and Renault Zoe Van.

2021 Vauxhall Movano

New vans coming soon: 2021 Vauxhall Movano

In a move that's come as a suprise to some, Vauxhall is to begin selling a new Movano large van based on the old Citroen Relay and Peugeot Boxer. This also makes it a close relation of the Fiat Ducato (which is also being updated in 2021).

This is set to be a large, inexpensive van with high payload. But it lacks some of the versatility of the previous Renault Master-based Movano, and is based on one of the oldest large van platforms around. Still, there is also a Movano-e electric version.

2021 Fiat Ducato

New vans coming soon: 2021 Fiat Ducato

Suggesting that an all-new replacement is still some way off, Fiat has revealed a substantial overhaul to its large Ducato van range. This bring new technology in the cab, advance driver assistance safety features, and sees the Ducato adopt the same engines as the Boxer and Relay for the first time.

This not only means a choice of 120hp, 140hp, 160hp or 180hp, but also light and heavy duty emissions variants, too. The New Ducato - as Fiat is calling it - is priced from £27k and should be reaching UK dealers soon. Go for the nine-speed auto, if you can.

2021 Iveco Daily

New vans coming soon: 2021 Iveco Daily

Another mere update, rather than an all-new van, but the latest upgrade to Iveco's ultra-tough Daily range includes a few interesting options as well as a sleek facelift (following on from the previous one, which only dates from 2019).

Top of the list here is the Air-Pro suspension, an all-round system that includes trick damping control for a more stable ride. But as before, the Daily also continues to offer both 2.3-litre and 3.0-litre engines - large capacities that are becoming increasingly rare in the van sector, and underline the Iveco's heavy-duty nature.

2022 Renault Kangoo (and Nissan NV250)

2021 Renault Kangoo - new vans coming soon

The next-generation Renault Kangoo is a new small van with striking style. As with the current Kangoo, it will come in two body lengths and as an all-electric Kangoo ZE as well. As it's now launched in Europe, we've managed to grab an early review drive, but it won't go on sale in the UK until 2022.

Sadly, its most innovative features won't be coming to the UK at all. But this is still looking like a clever piece of kit, including tricks such as a permanent rear-view camera to really take the fight to the latest Stellantis trio, the Citroen BerlingoPeugeot Partner and Vauxhall Combo, which are two-times winners of the Parkers Small Van of the Year award.

This van will also form the basis of the next-generation Nissan NV250 and Mercedes-Benz Citan.

2022 Mercedes-Benz Citan

New vans coming soon: 2020-2021 Mercedes-Benz Citan spy shot

We have spy photos but few further details of the next-generation Mercedes Citan, as although it was due to be unveiled before the end of 2020 it would seem the Covid-19 pandemic has pushed plans back a bit.

We do know that it will be based on the Renault Kangoo once again, and that Mercedes claims to have had more input into development this time around, which should hopefully result in a small van that feels more worthy of the three-pointed star.

Expected upgraded cabin materials and an electric version called the eCitan this time around.

2023 Ford Transit Custom (and VW Transporter)

New vans coming soon: 2023 Ford Transit Custom (current PHEV pictured)

Ford has announced the first details of the next-generation Transit Custom, and stated that it will go into production in 2023. Big news, as this is the UK's most popular van, and winner of the 2021 Parkers Van of the Year award.

Beyond this, details are scarce so far - except for the confirmation that it will be sold as an all-electric van as well as a diesel, a mild hybrid and a plug-in hybrid.

We do know that it will also form the basis of the next Volkswagen Transporter, however, and both vans will be built at Ford's facility in Turkey.

Other new vans on the horizon

We've no firm details of any kind about these yet, but we are expecting new versions of the Citroen Relay (known as the Jumper in Europe) and the Peugeot Boxer in around about 2022 - which will also spawn new versions of the Vauxhall Movano. Vauxhall and its European equivalent Opel are set to lead on this project, which will likely also form the basis of the next Fiat Ducato, given all these brands are now part of Stellantis.

At around the same time we are also expecting an all-new Renault Master, which will in turn be the basis for a new Nissan NV400.

Looking further ahead, Ford has announced a mystery new light commercial vehicle will be built in Romania from 2023, but at this stage we don't even know if this is a van or a pickup.

And don't forget, if you're after details of up-coming electric vans, those are listed in our dedicated electric vans coming soon page.
