  • Groupe PSA presents a preview of the electrified versions of Peugeot Boxer Electric and Citroën Jumper Electric at the Birmingham Commercial Vehicle Show (from 30 April to 2 May).
  • Leader in the LCV[1] segment in Europe with 24.7% market share in 2018, Groupe PSA reaffirms its ambition to offer 100% of its range with an electrified version, both in PC[2] and in LCV.
  • As of September 1, 2019, Groupe PSA has all the assets to successfully complete the new Euro 6 standard with WLTP[3] applicable to LCVs.

 

Philippe Narbeburu, Senior Vice-President, Light Commercial Vehicles Groupe PSA Business Unit: "In line with our ‘Push to Pass’ strategic plan, we are continuing to electrify our entire range. This new offer is a major competitive advantage for our brands in a very competitive LCV segment. This is an opportunity to strengthen our leadership in Europe by meeting the new needs of zero-emission driving without giving up the useful services related to the demanding uses of our professional customers."

 

The Peugeot Boxer Electric and Citroën Relay Electric large vans will be offered with two levels of autonomy depending on the version: 141 miles[1] on NEDC cycle for the length L1 and L2, and 169 miles on NEDC cycle for the lengths L3 and L4. After production at the Sevel factory in Val di Sangro (Atessa, Italy), the vehicles will be electrified and homologated by the BD AUTO partner.

In the medium van segment, Peugeot Expert and Traveller, Citroën Dispatch and SpaceTourer, Vauxhall Vivaro and Vivaro Life, will all offer an electrified version in 2020.

 

In the C-van segment, Partner Electric and Berlingo Electric have already existed since 1998. The new generation of these vans for Peugeot, Citroën, Opel and Vauxhall will be available with an electrified version by 2021.

 

As of 1st September this year, thanks to sound technological choices made in anticipation of the regulations (SCR - Selective Catalytic Reduction and GPF - Gasoline Particulate Filter), Groupe PSA’s LCV range (both standard vehicles and converted vehicles) have all the assets to successfully complete this new step to Euro 6 standard with WLTP test procedure reflecting more realistic fuel consumption in real use.
