It was a busy year at the CV Show. As usual we’ve got a round up of the main van and pickup highlights, plus a few other interesting and amusing models.
One of the most important new models at the show, in terms of likely sales, was the new Peugeot Expert/Citroen Dispatch mid-size van, which will also be sold badged as a Toyota Proace:
Other new vans in evidence included a new Volkswagen Crafter Tipper conversion:
Another highlight of the show was the long-awaited return of LDV vans. Now in Chinese hands, LDV were back in force with an updated version of the old Maxus the V80, plus the smaller G10 and an all-electric V80 with a promised range of 217 miles.
Although Ford didn’t have any new vans at the show, the Blue Oval did have a good display of past and present models, including these gems:
Another firm flying the electric flag was Iveco, which gave visitors the chance to get a good look at the electric drivetrain used for the Iveco Daily Electric:
Iveco was also keen to remind visitors of the truly cavernous loadspace proportions offered by the current Euro 6 Daily:
On the pickup front there was also plenty of action. As promised Isuzu unveiled an all-new version of its D-Max pickup at the CV Show. The D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 is designed for serious off-road use, with massive tyres and rims plus uprated suspension:
Also present was SsangYong’s wacky camouflage special edition of the excellent value Korando Sport pickup:
Finally, to finish off with here’s a shot of Iveco’s Dakar race truck, which was on display outside the hall:
