Citroen and Peugeot have launched a pair of large new electric vans as the brands expand their EV line-ups further.
Both mechanically identical, the Citroen e-Relay and Peugeot e-Boxer are soon to arrive in showrooms, and play a key part in the two brands offering a battery-powered version of every van they sell.
Across the two vans, buyers have a choice of a 37kWh battery pack offering 73 miles of electric range, and a larger 70kWh option that enables a claimed 139 miles of range. Each also uses a 90kW electric motor producing 350Nm of torque. Each van can also be rapid charged at 50kW in an hour, while plugged in using a 7.4kW wallbox, the 37kWh version can be charged in six hours, or 12 hours for the model with the bigger battery.
Each is also available in a Panel Van, Window Van or Chassis Cab configuration and offered in various lengths offering a load volume of up to 15m3 and 1,150kg of payload.
There’s just a single trim level available on each, with standard equipment including a five-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation and DAB radio, along with a rear-view mirror that displays key information about the van. The Peugeot also comes with a free six-month subscription to BP Pulse, which has one of the UK’s largest networks of public chargers.
Prices for the Peugeot e-Expert and Citroen e-Relay are identical, with models starting from £49,335 for the 37kWh battery and £55,085 for the 70kWh battery option. Both prices exclude VAT but include the government’s £6,000 grant for electric vans.Enquire on a new Citroen van
