PSA to launch all-electric versions of its compact van range from 2020
Peugeot Expert, Citroën Jumpy, Opel Vivaro and Vauxhall Vivaro will come in all‐electric versions from 2020.
In an increasingly urbanized environment, 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), responding in particular to the development of e-commerce activities.
The new all-electric offering, in both LCVs and minivan and business van versions, will address a key challenge by allowing Groupe PSA to win new market share in these segments.
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: 200 kilometers equipped with a 50 kWh battery and 300 kilometers equipped with a 75 kWh battery.
