Citroen e-Dispatch: payload and range revealed

Citroen e-Dispatch

Citroen has confirmed the new e-Dispatch electric van will be available in the UK in the second half of 2020.

The new model will offer a range of 143 or 205 miles, depending on version.

It is available in three sizes (XS, M and XL) with a payload of up to 1,275Kg.

It will be joined by a 100% electric version of Relay at the end of the year and an electric Berlingo Van next year. From 2021, Citroen says its entire LCV range will include electrified models alongside efficient internal combustion engines.

The e-Dispatch looks identical to a regular Dispatch, other than a charging point mounted on the front wing and discreet badging.

Load volume is unaffected by the electrified powertrain, with the battery pack integrated into the van’s chassis.

The XS version (4.6m length) provides a 5.1 cubic metre load space and is available with the smaller 50kWh battery – giving a range of 143 miles.

The M version is 4.95m long and can be specified with the 50kWh battery or the larger 75kWh unit, which increased range to 205 miles.

XL versions are 5.3m long and provide up to 6.6 cubic metres of load space. These are fitted with the larger battery only.

All can tow up to 1,000Kg and payloads are rated at up to 1,275Kg regardless of size or battery.

The electric motor in the e-Dispatch develops 136PS and 260Nm. Top speed is restricted to 80mph.

Charging times vary, with the smaller battery able to gain an 80% charge in just 30 minutes when using a 100kW charging point.

The van can be specified with either a 7.4kW or 11kW on board charger, depending on the charging needs of the user.

Pricing will be confirmed closer to the vans launch.
