PSA Group To Introduce Lineup Of Electric Vans

OCT 20 2018 BY MARK KANE 7

Peugeot and Citroën develop all-electric commercial vehicles.

PSA Group plans to offer electric versions of all of its commercial vehicles by 2025 and offer them at competitive prices compared to diesel counterparts.

In 2020, the twin brands are expected to introduce Citroën Jumpy and Peugeot Expert, which would directly compete with Nissan e-NV200. Jumpy/Expert come in three versions with cargo volume between 4.6 and 6.6 m3 and payload of up to around 1,400 kg. The range of those BEVs is unknown at the moment, but PSA apparently targets 85% of applications.

Another step will be to increase the range of Citroen Berlingo Electric and Peugeot Partner Electric, which since inception several years ago has been equipped with a 22.5 kWh battery. After Renault increased battery capacity of Kangoo Z.E. to 33 kWh, those two are not competitive.

The final move would be electrification of bigger Citroën Jumper and Peugeot Boxer, based on the Fiat Ducato, so maybe even Fiat would consider electrification of Ducato on its side.

“In 2020, the twin brands are expected to introduce Citroën Jumpy and Peugeot Expert, which would directly compete with Nissan e-NV200. ”

What about Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro (and maybe also Toyota ProAce)?
Oepl has been owned by PSA Group for more than a year now.
The 3rd generation Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro (from the beginning of 2019) will be based on Citroën Jumpy, and will replace the 2nd generation Vivaro, which is based on Renault Trafic.
Besides Peugeot Expert and Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro, the Citroën Jumpy/Dispatch is also sold as Toyota ProAce.

In fact the above models will be built at Vauxhall’s Luton plant and the Vivaro will be electrified too, confirmed by thier chairman.

Found this: https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/vauxhall/101651/vauxhall-s-luton-plant-to-build-the-next-vivaro-van-plus-its-peugeot-and-citroen
“This is likely to mean a move over to PSA diesel engines to power the Vivaro and we can also expect hybrid and full-ev models, with the chairman revealing that the new Vivaro will be electrified at some point in its lifecycle.”

Vivaro will be electrified too, I found this quote from PSA Chairman Carlos Tavares:

https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/vauxhall/101651/vauxhall-s-luton-plant-to-build-the-next-vivaro-van-plus-its-peugeot-and-citroen
“Tavares announced that production would increase in Luton from 2017’s 70,000 vehicles to 100,000, with the new van based on the PSA group EMP2 platform that underpins everything from the Peugeot 3008 to the new DS 7. This is likely to mean a move over to PSA diesel engines to power the Vivaro and we can also expect hybrid and full-ev models, with the chairman revealing that the new Vivaro will be electrified at some point in its lifecycle.

Although the announcement only mentioned Vauxhall and Opel Vivaro models, PSA confirmed that Peugeot Expert and Citroen Dispatch will also be built in Luton alongside Vauxhall and Opel versions of the Vivaro if demand for vans continues to increase.”

I took a look at the new Berlingo and is a very nice MPV, with a decent BEV version could be an interesting and afordable electric alternative, spaceous and practical for big families.

An electric Fiat Doblò flatbed would be interesting, they are really popular here.

Troy

Electric Ducato would make a great Class B!

A tip to PSA, add DS seats as an option for all their vans. The current seats are not that good.
