Peugeot E-Rifter electric MPV gets 2024 updates but remains as roomy as ever

Peugeot’s budget electric seven-seater receives several useful improvements for 2024

  • Refreshed exterior design.
  • Up to 199 miles of range.
  • New 10-inch infotainment screen.

Peugeot has treated the E-Rifter electric people-mover to a mid-life refresh. Improvements such as a 10-inch infotainment display, revised front-end styling and longer range help to bring the E-Rifter up to date with the rest of Peugeot’s EV range.

Up front, the E-Rifter has a new front bumper along with a pair of redesigned headlights, featuring Peugeot’s trademark ‘three-claw’ design. Buyers will also have two new colours to choose from: Sirkka Green and Kiama Blue. Other than these changes, the 2024 E-Rifter retains the same spacious van-based MPV look and layout from the pre-facelift car.

Changes have been made on the inside too. As standard, the dashboard now houses a central 10-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system that includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A wireless phone charging pad can be found on the centre console and the cabin also features two USB-C ports, one USB-A port and a 230V socket. The steering wheel is now heated and Peugeot’s suite of driving assistance and safety technologies are included, as before.

The 50kWh battery and single electric motor remain unchanged, with a power output of 134bhp. However, improvements have been made to the E-Rifter’s range, increasing it from around 170 miles in the old models to 199 miles. The battery can be recharged from 0 to 80% in just 30 minutes with a 100 kW DC charger. Expect a full recharge time of 5 hours when using an 11kW AC domestic wallbox charger or 7 hours 30 minutes with a 7.4kW AC charger.

The E-Rifter is available in two lengths: Standard (4.4 metres) with 5 seats, or Long (4.7 metres) with 7 seats. We were fans of the previous model’s huge boot and thankfully this remains unchanged, with a capacity of up to 4,000 litres with the seats folded down.

The E-Rifter will go on sale from February 2024 and although Peugeot is yet to release pricing information, we can expect a starting price marginally higher than last year, at around £34,000.
