The Talbot Express van was the last Talbot motor vehicle to be sold. Produced as part of the Sevel Sud joint venture between PSA Peugeot Citroën and Fiat, it was made in Italy alongside the Fiat Ducato, Peugeot J5 and Citroën C25. Production began in 1984 when the Talbot badge was withdrawn from passenger cars.

The Express' main competitor was the Renault Trafic. Its engines are transversely mounted; the petrol one is a Peugeot 504 unit whilst the diesel one is from the Citroën CX diesel. Both are coupled to a Citroën gearbox.

In 1991, the series 2 Express was launched with an enlarged grille but was discontinued in 1994 when Peugeot finally discarded the Talbot marque.

The Express was very popular in the UK as a basis for campervan conversions.
