Groupe PSA has announced that the Peugeot Expert, Citroën Dispatch, Vauxhall Vivaro and Opel Vivaro will be available in all‑electric versions from 2020.
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.
The electric versions of all four brands’ compact vans will have 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.
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. In 2021, our entire range of LCVs and their passenger car equivalents will be electrified.”
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).
