Peugeot is accelerating its move to electrification as it announces that starting this year, all MPVs from the French carmaker — currently made up of the Rifter and Traveller — will be sold exclusively as electric models.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are Peugeot's EV MPVs?

    Replacing their ICE versions are the e-Rifter and e-Traveller.
  • What motor and battery setup does the e-Rifter and e-Traveller have?

    Both the e-Rifter and e-Traveller will be powered by a 100kW (136hp) electric motor and a 50kWh battery.
  • What other EVs does Peugeot have in the pipeline?

    According to Peugeot, it will also release the new Peugeot 308 and 308 SW to expand its EV lineup.
  • Replacing the aforementioned models are their electrified versions: the e-Rifter and e-Traveller. To meet the growing demand for electric vehicles, Peugeot has ceased production of the gasoline and diesel variants of the Traveller and Rifter.

    “Peugeot is committed to electrification, with a goal of offering a fully electric variant across our entire model lineup by 2024. Already we offer a fully electric van across our entire LCV portfolio, so with our award-winning MPV range now exclusively available as electric vehicles, we’re catering for the growing demand for zero-tailpipe emissions vehicles,” said Peugeot Managing Director Julie David.

    According to Peugeot, both the e-Rifter and e-Traveller have already impressed fleets and private owners with their ease of use, low running costs, versatility, and practicality.

    The e-Rifter is built on Peugeot’s EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform 2) and can be specified as either a five or seven-seat model. It is powered by a 100kW (136hp) electric motor and a 50kWh battery, capable of reaching zero to 80 percent in just 30 minutes thanks to its 100kW rapid charging technology. In a single charge, the e-Rifter can run up to 172 miles.

    Meanwhile, Peugeot’s e-Traveller is made available in both Standard and Long body styles with both variants capable of carrying up to eight occupants. The e-Traveller is also powered by a 50kWh battery and a 100kW (136hp) electric motor. It can achieve up to 148 miles between charges, and like the e-Rifter, supports 100kW rapid charging, and can reach zero to 80 percent charge in just 30 minutes.

    In addition, the new Peugeot 308 and 308 SW will expand the brand’s electric lineup. From launch both the 308 and 308 SW will be available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, with a fully electric 308 and 308 SW arriving as early as 2023.

    To support its EV offerings, Peugeot offers a broad range of helpful services allowing its customers to easily transition from ICEs to EVs. In the UK, Peugeot has teamed up Pod Point to launch a charging station finder so its customers can conveniently search for locations to recharge their EVs. The initiative, according to Peugeot, is fully approved under the Government Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and Workplace charging scheme.

    Peugeot customers can also opt to purchase their vehicle with a single service plan to cover all essential maintenance. Owners are also given a certificate of battery capacity after each service, with the battery under warranty for eight years or 100,000 miles for 70 percent of its capacity.

    The Stellantis-owned French automotive company is also working on next-gen low-emission vehicles. In December last year, the first-ever Peugeot e-Expert Hydrogen rolled off the production line and will first be sold in Germany and France. The e-Expert Hydrogen features hydrogen plug-in fuel cell technology and is capable of up to 248 miles between refueling — which takes just three minutes at designated hydrogen fuel stations.
