Peugeot to build next Vauxhall Combo

  • Based on next gen Berlingo and Partner vans
  • Expected to arrive in 2018
  • Will be built at PSA’s Vigo plant in Spain

Parent company of Peugeot and Citroen, PSA, has announced that it will build the next-generation Vauxhall Combo. The current model is built by Tofas, in Turkey, and shares the same chassis and driveline as the Fiat Doblo.

The new model is expected to arrive in 2018, and will share the same architecture as the next-generation Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner. However, a press release from the companies stated that “the vehicles of both manufacturers will be differentiated and consistent with their respective brand appearance”.

Vauxhall's new Doblo will be built at PSA’s Vigo production facility in Spain, which builds the current Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner. The partnership between PSA and General Motors (GM) for the time being is confined to this small van development, but it remains to be seen who GM will partner with for the Vauxhall Movano replacement, due in a couple of years’ time.
