Already five brands (4 PSA plus Toyota) announced versions the same, mid-size electric van.
PSA Group (Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel/Vauxhall) has launched a huge electrification offensive in Europe to offer all three types of its vans (small, medium and large) in an all-electric version by all its own and some related brands.
Here, we will focus on all the mid-size vans (commercial and passenger), as those are the vans that come first on the market (fall 2020 or early 2021). The small and large vans will be introduced later.
All of the models described below are built on the EMP2 multi-energy platform, and offered with two battery options:
- 230 km on the WLTP cycle fitted with a 50 kWh battery, made up of 18 modules
- 330 km on the WLTP cycle fitted with a 75 kWh battery, made up of 27 modules
The electric motor (front-wheel drive) is 100 kW and 260 Nm, while the charging is up to 100 kW DC. The on-board charger can be 11 kW (three-phase) or 7.4 kW (single-phase).
- Peugeot e-Expert commercial van (see details)
- Peugeot e-Traveller passenger MPV with up to 9 seats (see details)
- Citroen e-Dispatch or Citroen e-Jumpy (depending on market) commercial van (see details)
- Citroen e-SpaceTourer passenger MPV with up to 9 seats (see details)

- Opel Zafira-e Life passenger MPV with up to 9 seats (see details)

Toyota, which partners with the PSA in the commercial van segment, will use the same mid-size electric vans, although with some differentiation characteristic to the Japanese brand.
The biggest difference is the battery warranty of up to 15 years /1,000,000 km (621,500 miles), including 75% of initial battery capacity. PSA offers eight-year/160,000 km (100,000 miles) and 70% of initial battery capacity.
