Peugeot, Opel, and Citroen are among the most popular vans in Europe both for cargo and passenger transport. The mid-size models, like Vivaro, Jumpy, Expert, and Traveller, as well as the large models are often also used as campervans. Opel and Vauxhall even market a factory-built Vivaro Life for road trips and for vanlife lifestyle. Now, PSA Group that owns all these brands has announced that these mid-size vans will have an all-electric version in 2020.
The Peugeot Expert, Citroën Jumpy, Opel Vivaro and Vauxhall Vivaro will be available as all-electric versions in 2020.
Two options for battery is provided: a 50 kWh battery with 200 km / 124 mile range and a 75kWh battery that has juice for 300 km / 186 mile drive. The range has been measured according to the WLTP specifications.
The automaker has created a new platform for electric and hybrid vehicles, the EMP2. The electric vans are built on this platform.
The PSA Group claims to have 24.7% market share of compact and mid-size van market in Europe. The introduction of electric Citroen, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall vans to this large product segment should have an impact on the charging networks as well.
The target for the PSA Group is to make its entire range of vans available as all-electric models in 2021.
