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.”
The models concerned are the Peugeot Expert, Citroën Dispatch, Vauxhall Vivaro and Opel Vivaro, which are based on the EMP2 platform.
Since 2019, all new models launched by Groupe PSA come with either all-electric of plug-in hybrid powertrains. The aim is for the Group’s entire passenger car and LCV range to be electrified by 2025.
The all-electric versions of the four brands’ compact vans will be assembled at the Hordain plant in northern France and equipped with electric powertrains assembled at the Trémery plant in the country’s east. The electric versions will offer two levels of travel range:
- 124 miles on the WLTP cycle equipped with a 50 kilowatt/hour battery
- 186 miles on the WLTP cycle equipped with a 75 kilowatt/hour battery
