For quite some time now, Peugeot and Toyota have been producing cars together. The Toyota Aygo and Peugeot 107 was one of the first cars to be made under the collaboration. Since then, the partnership has also extended into making vans and the Japanese and French marques are looking forward to make more.
Toyota and Peugeot have announced that they will be building more vans under the partnership. Not only that, the two said that they will be introducing a new small van in the future. Dubbed the C-Van project, it will spawn Toyota, Peugeot, and Citroen variants and will be sold across Europe. But given that their first van project, the Peugeot Traveller, is sold in most parts of the world, it is possible that the ASEAN region could see the fruits of this partnership.
For now, there isn't a lot of details surrounding the C-Van project. However, it is possible that they will something similar to a Sienta, Toyota's small MPV for select Asian countries. As part of the deal, Peugeot will be doing most of the development with Toyota providing additional input from an engineering standpoint. With that, Toyota's next small van could be based on the recently introduced, all-new Peugeot Partner (pictured above).
With commercial vehicles being the primary focus of the joint venture, Toyota and Peugeot will be ending their small car program. That means the Toyota Aygo, Peugeot 108, and Citroen C1 may not live to see a next-generation model come 2021. On the flipside, the partnership could also spawn a Hilux-based pickup truck from Peugeot.
