Citroen e-SpaceTourer MPV to go on sale in 2020

Like the mechanically identical Peugeot e-Traveller, the Citroen e-SpaceTourer offers 143 miles of range

  • Fast-charging available
  • Available with five to nine seats
  • e-SpaceTourer allows cabin preconditioning

The Citroen e-SpaceTourer has been revealed. It’s an electric version of the Citroen SpaceTourer MPV, which itself is based on the Citroen Dispatch van. Thanks to those origins, it offers a huge amount of space, while the new electric powertrain provides a 143-mile range. The e-SpaceTourer will arrive in the UK later this year.

Like the rebadged Peugeot e-Traveller, the e-SpaceTourer uses a 50kWh battery. It’s the same size as the battery fitted in the Peugeot e-2008, but the SpaceTourer’s bulk means the range is a little lower, at 143 miles. Zero-to-62mph acceleration isn’t as nippy as we’ve come to expect from electric cars - it takes just over 13 seconds - and the top speed is 80mph.

Fast-charging is available, so topping up the battery can be done relatively quickly. Plug in to a 100kW charger and the battery will reach 80% capacity in half an hour. You can also charge it from a public or private wallbox, which fully recharges the battery in under eight hours.

Only the ‘M’ size is available in electric form (diesel SpaceTourers also come with an extended ‘XL’ body style), and two different trim levels are offered for private and business customers. The ‘Feel’ trim available to private buyers can be specified with between five and eight seats, while the ‘Business’ trim level is aimed at private hire companies and chauffeurs, and offers up to nine seats.

A seven-inch touchscreen can offer sat nav, the display for the reversing camera and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity. There’s also plenty of safety technology available, such as blind-spot monitoring and driver fatigue monitoring. Downloading the MyCitroen app adds extra features, including the ability to preset the cabin temperature before getting in.

The e-SpaceTourer’s EMP2 platform means the batteries are stowed under the floor, so passenger and luggage space is unaffected. Citroen claims a boot space figure of 2,381 litres with five seats in place. Its 1.9-metre height means most car parks won’t be a problem.
