Also known as the CitroŽn Jumpy, the CitroŽn Dispatch is a French-designed and Italian-produced light commercial vehicle thatís been on the international market since 1994. Itís available in 4- or 5-door models, and was first made available as a panel van, which is still its most popular iteration. The model is designed by CitroŽn and manufactured by Sevel Nord. If your business has a CitroŽn Dispatch on its fleet, consider picking up a CitroŽn Dispatch workshop manual to keep on hand to aid with regular maintenance and troubleshooting.
As a light commercial vehicle, the CitroŽn Dispatch is meant to be used for commercial carrying, with low operating costs, a fuel-efficient engine thatís still powerful enough to carry weight, and a tough build that can withstand heavy use while driving in cities and highways both.
A later-gen minibus version of the CitroŽn Dispatch was released in 2015, called the CitroŽn SpaceTourer. This version is meant to carry passengers instead of solely cargo, making it a flexible version of the commercial vehicle. The vehicle has had three generations so far, and itís been remarketed as the Peugeot Expert and the Fiat Scudo since 1995. Itís known as the CitroŽn Jumpy across the European Union, but international markets refer to it as the CitroŽn Dispatch.
Its drive layout features a transverse front engine with front wheel drive, which is both practical in terms of maintenance, and inexpensive in terms of manufacturing, allowing the light commercial vehicle to have a competitive price point in European and international markets. Because the CitroŽn Dispatch isnít meant to be used as a passenger vehicle (except for the minibus iteration), the front wheel drive layout doesnít necessarily affect weight distribution in a way that it would in a non-LCV, making it an efficient build choice.
In 2011, the CitroŽn Dispatch received a second-generation redesign, causing the vehicle to become more angular and slim-looking. The redesign also involved new engine choices, including the PSA EW10, DLD-416, and PSA DW10 as options. The third-generation redesign saw the LCV become more conspicuous in design, with fewer curves and more angular lines.
Between 2009 and 2012, CitroŽn produced over 465,000 units of this light commercial vehicle under its own name, and another 500,000 units under the Peugeot name.
