Related Citroën, Opel and Peugeot models will no longer be available with petrol or diesel engines. Their base price has risen sharply.

In addition to purebred electric cars, there are a number of cars on the market today that offer several versions of the drive. Until recently, this category included MPV relatives from the Stellantis workshop, namely Citroën Berlingo, Opel Combo and Peugeot Rifter. However, their wide model range is a thing of the past. How warned Autorevue.cz portal, conventional versions are coming to an end.
The multinational group is withdrawing its MPV with internal combustion engines from the offer, which is due to fleet emissions. Stellantis will only sell electric variants of these vehicles on European Union markets. The same is true for the larger ClassTourer, Zafira Life and Traveler types, but in all cases these are only personal versions. The end is not affected by utility models.
Stocks are currently being sold out within individual brands. Subsequently, several related models will no longer be available with petrol or diesel engines, which will affect their financial attractiveness. The base price has risen significantly. Until recently, for example, the Peugeot Rifter sold from € 19,590, while its electric version costs at least € 32,290.
Stellantis is to continue to offer conventional versions of these vehicles outside the EU, for example in Switzerland. However, they do not leave the Slovak market at all. The mentioned MPVs are also sold under the Toyota brand, which refers to them as Proace City Verso and Proace Verso.
The Japanese manufacturer plans to continue to offer its models with internal combustion engines, which was confirmed by the Slovak importer. The reason is clear. Toyota can afford this by selling much of its cars with hybrid drive.
