The 1990s were a boom time for family transport. While the concept of a van with seats was nothing new, it was the launch of the Renault Espace in 1984 that galvanised the concept in Europe – creating one of the first MPVs in the process and spurring manufacturers into action.

In a bid to be competitive, manufacturers pooled resources. Citroen and Peugeot worked with Fiat and Lancia to create the Synergie, 806, Ulysse, and Zeta – and the ‘Eurovan’ was born.

All the variants were made at the Sevel Nord factory in France. And all models used PSA’s petrol and diesel engines. The car could seat seven people, while the front seats could swivel through 180-degrees (while all manner of combinations was available from the other).
