PSA Group has released details and specifications for the battery-electric versions of its midsize vans from Peugeot, Citroen and Opel/Vauxhall.
The models — the Peugeot e-Expert, Citroen e-Jumpy (e-Dispatch in the UK) and Opel/Vauxhall e-Vivaro — will be launched in the second half of this year; prices have not yet been announced.
The vans will be offered with two battery sizes: 50 kilowatt hours, with a WLTP range of 230 km (143 miles); and 75 kWh, with a range of 330 km. The batteries have an eight-year, 160,000 km warranty (up to 70 percent of charging capacity).
Charging times from a 7.4 kilowatt wall box are 7.5 hours (50 kWh battery) or 11 hours 20 minutes (75 kWh battery). A 100 kw charging station will charge the battery 80 percent in 30 (50 kWh) or 45 minutes (75 kWh). A charging port is on the front left fender.
The vans are available in compact (4600 mm), standard (4950 mm) and long (5300 mm) sizes, and can be adapted by conversion companies to specific uses. Battery-electric versions have the same interior volume, which ranges from 5.1 to 6.6 square meters, as combustion versions.
Payload for the standard size ranges from 1,001 kg (2,200 lbs) to 1,238 kg, depending on options, slightly less than internal-combustion versions.
PSA says it is aiming the vans at tradespeople, environmentally-minded businesses such as delivery services, and municipal agencies. Competitors include the Nissan e-NV200, with 2,097 sales in the first quarter of 2020, and the Renault Kangoo ZE, with 1,874 sales.
