PSA confirms electric Combo, Partner and Berlingo vans coming in 2021

Groupe PSA will expand its range of electric vans next year with the introduction of the Citroen e-Berlingo, Peugeot e-Partner and Vauxhall Combo-e.

Toyota will also offer an electric version of the Proace City.

Featuring 50kWh battery packs and 136PS electric motors, the new models will use the same powertrain as their larger counterparts in the medium-seized van segment.

Pricing and range details are yet to be announced, but PSA has confirmed that passenger car versions of each vehicle will also be offered.

The electric compact vans and the battery packs will be assembled at PSA’s Vigo plant (Galicia, Spain), the electric motors in Tremery (France) and the final drive gears in Valenciennes (France).

Xavier Peugeot, Senior Vice-President of Groupe PSA’s Light Commercial Vehicles Business Unit said: “With these all-electric versions of compact vans and associated passenger cars, Groupe PSA is continuing its electrification offensive and now offers a completely electrified LCV portfolio without compromises on performance”.

Since 2019, Groupe PSA has launched all-electric or plug-in hybrid versions of all its new models. The Group's objective is to offer a fully electrified portfolio by 2025.
