Peugeot and Citroen launch electric MPVs in UK


Peugeot and Citroen are taking orders for their pure electric MPVs – the e-Traveller and e-SpaceTourer respectively. Both models share a platform and powertrain components, with a range of up to 143 miles on a charge quoted.

Each use a 100 KW electric motor powered by a 50 kW battery. This is able to be charged at up to 7 kW AC or 100 kW from ultra-rapid DC charge points, via the CCS inlet.

Charging times are around seven and a half hours for a full charge on 7 kW AC units, and as little as half an hour to 80% on rapid units. Both companies are offering buyers a free six month Polar Plus subscription for public charging.

The Peugeot e-Traveller seats up to eight passengers – two in the front with two rows of three seats behind – while the Citroen e-SpaceTourer seats up to nine.

Retail customers will get an eight-seater configuration, but a Business trim is aimed at professional users, with three rows of three seats, alongside materials designed for added durability.

Whilst Citroen offers a choice of seating configurations, Peugeot offers a choice between two lengths – Standard and Long.

Citroen’s e-SpaceTourer comes in Feel or Business trim, while Peugeot offers Active and Allure specifications. Both come with connected car features through smartphone apps.

Prices are available for Citroen’s e-SpaceTourer, with Feel starting at £46,250 and Business from £45,600. Deliveries are expected to start in November. Peugeot is taking deposits for the e-Traveller, though pricing hasn’t been finalised ahead of its arrival early next year.
