Citroën Dispatch First generation
|1994 to 2006|
|Also called||Citroën Jumpy
|Production||June 1994 – December 2006|
|Body and chassis|
Citroën released the first generation Jumpy in June 1994, opting to rename the model "'Dispatch'" in English-speaking markets such as the United Kingdom. Peugeot and Fiat followed with rebadged models in July 1995 and February 1996, respectively. The vans differ little technically and visually, being a prime example of badge engineering. They share mechanicals and body structure with the Sevel Nord Eurovans vans: the Citroën Evasion (Synergie), Fiat Ulysse, Lancia Zeta, and Peugeot 806.
The engines available throughout the models do differ, with the Fiat getting its own engines separate from those fitted to the Citroën and Peugeot. The Fiat Scudo replaces Fiat 900T.
The model received a slight facelift in 2004, which changed most of the front end; including the bumper, bonnet, and for the first time, the headlamps were combined with the indicator rather than being a separate set of lights.
