Sale new Peugeot Expert and Citroen Jumpy was launched in Russia this summer, but until we receive the vans, collected in France at the factory Sevelnord. Here are available single-platform vans Peugeot Citroen Spacetourer and Traveller for our market, they localize in Russia is not planned yet. But Expert and Jumpy will fall on the conveyor of the Kaluga plant next year. It has been known for a long time, but today announced officially.

To release the vans we are planning on a full cycle, but some body panels at first will come from Europe. Nevertheless, the “PSMA Rus” promises that already at the start of production of the Peugeot Expert and Citroen Jumpy will be localized in Russia by 50%, although manufactured in the Kaluga plant for several years for Citroen C4 Sedan and Peugeot 408 is localized only 35%.

High degree of localization gives hope that the ruble prices for Jumpy Expert and can be significantly reduced. However, while any statements on this subject the manufacturer did not. Now the citroën Jumpy is available with a 90-strong 1,6-litre turbodiesel and 5-speed manual transmission offered in Russia for 1 299 900 rubles, Peugeot Expert a little more expensive — from 1 349 900 rubles. Similar size of the Volkswagen Transporter and Mercedes-Benz Vito is more expensive: from 1 830 500 2 227 870 rubles, respectively. Ford Transit Custom is available in Russia at a price of 1 749 000 rubles. If, after the start of production prices on Peugeot Expert and Citroen Jumpy will fall, competitors will likely remain out of work — pay the extra half a million and more for prestige business becomes. But a certain intersection on prices with larger Gazelle Next the French vans it is possible — wait for the updated price list!

Recall that Expert and Jumpy cars built on a modular platform EMP2, which means the development of the Kaluga plant opens prospects for containment of the newest crossovers from Groupe PSA, namely Citroen C5 Aircross and the Peugeot 3008.
