Want to know what new van models are going on sale in the next couple of years? Looking to replace your existing van and wondering whether to hold out for an all-new model? Then you've come to the right place.
See what's coming in 2020...
The LDV EV30 is one new arrival that will have Nissan quaking as the little Chinese van may knock the eNV200 off the top spot for European electric van sales. With a range of up to 200 miles, up to 6 cubic meters of load volume and payloads of up to one tonne, the EV30 certainly makes the electric van proposition a lot more credible.
The LDV V90 is the upcoming large panel van from LDV which its owners say is a drastic improvement on the current V80. Developed primarily for Europe, LDV says it now rivals the Sprinter and Transit for comfort and refinement. The LDV V90, when it arrives, will be powered by an all-new diesel engine that will be compliant with Euro 6 emissions legislation.
The Nissan NV250 is the upcoming small panel van from Nissan, built at Renault’s Maubeuge factory and based on the Renault Kangoo platform. Replacing the NV200, the Nissan NV250 is powered by the same 1.5-litre diesel and will offer payloads up to around 850kg. The NV250 comes in more variants, including some conversion options.
Introduced in 2008, the Renault Kangoo will be the oldest van on the market when it comes time to being replaced in 2020. The new model is earmarked for a Q3 2020 launch, meaning it is likely to roll into UK dealers in time for the September 2020 registrations. The Renault Kangoo 2020 is a completely new van from the wheels up, introducing new technology, better ride and comfort and a range of new powerful engines.
Toyota officially revealed its new Proace City small van at the CV Show in 2019, but it won't go on sale in the UK until 2020. Based on the same platform as the Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner and Vauxhall Combo Cargo, it's neatly styled and packed with technology. It offers designed-in practicality with excellent load and length capacity, being one of few models that accommodate two Euro pallets,’ according to the company statement.
The Transporter 6.1 panel van is the latest of the line, featuring a redesigned front end and interior, unprecedented connectivity and a more efficiently packaged load space. It carries over Volkswagen’s latest driver assistance systems and offers a range of Euro 6 compliant drivetrains including 4MOTION, to suit every purpose.
