Groupe PSA has announced that Peugeot Expert, Citroën Dispatch and Vauxhall Vivaro will come in all‑electric versions from 2020.
The electric versions will offer two levels of travel range: 124 miles on the WLTP cycle equipped with a 50 kilowatt/hour battery; and 186 miles on the WLTP cycle equipped with a 75 kilowatt/hour battery.
Since 2019, all new models launched by Groupe PSA come with either all-electric or plug-in hybrid powertrains. The aim is for the Group’s entire passenger car and LCV range to be electrified by 2025.
Xavier Peugeot, senior vice-president of Groupe PSA’s light commercial vehicles business unit, said: “Groupe PSA is pushing ahead with the electrification of its LCV range by offering electric versions of compact vans for business and individual customers.
“Without compromising on features, the range will help strengthen our leadership in this segment in Europe.”
Groupe PSA’s new generation of compact vans has been designed around the EMP2 multi-energy platform to offer zero-CO2 mobility for individuals (passenger car versions) and freight (commercial vehicle versions), responding in particular to the development of e-commerce activities.
The all-electric versions of the four brands’ compact vans will be assembled at the Hordain plant in northern France and equipped with electric powertrains assembled at the Trémery plant in the country’s east.
