The new electric Citroen e-SpaceTourer will be priced from £45,600 after the plug-in car grant and is available for orders now.
The fully-electric e-SpaceTourer is effectively the same vehicle as the Peugeot e-Traveller and the Vauxhall Vivaro-e Life, with the three differentiated by minor styling variations and trim differences. They are all based on the equivalent diesel SpaceTourer/Traveller/Vivaro Life models, which are in turn passenger versions of the Dispatch/Expert/Vivaro delivery vans.
The e-SpaceTourer is available in two trims. The less expensive is called Business and is focused on fleet buyers. It gets seating for up to nine and has hard-wearing floors for better durability.
The other trim is called Feel and that’s aimed at families, with prices starting at £46,250. This gets a child observation mirror, load restraint net, rail-mounted rear seats, and automatic dual-zone climate control.
In both models, there are up to three rows of seats, with the rear seats able to be removed for almost 4,000 litres of luggage capacity. Both also have no benefit-in-kind to be paid in the 2020/21 financial year.
It’s powered by a 136hp (100kW) electric motor and has a 50kWh battery that can provide up to 143 miles per charge. It also supports up to 100kW rapid charging, so a 0-80% charge takes around 30 minutes.
All models have a seven-inch infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a smartphone app that lets the owner pre-condition the battery or defer charging, and a drive-mode selector.
The e-SpaceTourer’s battery comes with an eight-year or 100,000-mile warranty for up to 70% of the initial battery capacity.
