Citroen, Peugeot and Vauxhall compact electric vans now on sale

Brand’s entry-level electric commercial vehicles can travel around 170 miles on a charge

Citroen, Peugeot and Vauxhall have announced that their trio of mechanically-similar electric vans are now on sale. 

Completing the three brands’ electric commercial vehicle line-ups, the Citroen e-Berlingo, Peugeot e-Partner and Vauxhall Combo-e are now available to order. 

Each is available as a regular panel van or as a crew cab, which get a set of rear seats and are available in a choice of two lengths – Standard and Long. The former has a load length of up to 3.09m and has a maximum payload of 803kg, while the stretched versions offer a maximum load length of 3.44m, and a payload of 751kg.

All the electric vans share the same powertrain, which links a 100KW electric motor (producing 134bhp), with a 50kWh battery. All firms say this allows for an electric range of up to 171 miles, while 100kW rapid charging capability means its battery can be charged to 80 per cent in as little as 30 minutes. For charging at home with a wallbox, it would take seven hours, though you can specify a larger on-board charger as an extra, which reduces this time to five hours. 

Standard equipment and trim levels differ across the three vans, though standard equipment includes an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 16-inch steel wheels and a folding passenger seat that allows longer items to be carried. Higher spec versions are available with alloy wheels, a digital instrument cluster and a reversing camera to name just a few features.

All the electric vans are now available to order, with prices starting from £24,910 for the Citroen e-Berlingo, £27,910 on the Peugeot e-Partner and £25,238 for the Vauxhall Combo-e. All prices are excluding VAT though include the government’s electric van grant. First deliveries are expected before the end of 2021, while production of the electric vans is set to move to the UK’s Ellesmere Port plant later next year.
