Peugeot e-Rifter MPV on sale now from £30,375

Electric Peugeot Rifter offers 172 miles of range

  • Uses same powertrain as e-208
  • Up to 4,000 litres of boot space
  • 100kW fast charging

The fully electric Peugeot e-Rifter MPV is on sale now in two trim levels, priced from £30,375.

The e-Rifter, which is offered alongside the petrol and diesel models, offers a 172-mile range and fast charging. Like the Peugeot e-208 and various other Peugeot, Citroen and Vauxhall models, it packs a 50kWh battery and a 134bhp electric motor. Its stats are perfectly reasonable for a car of its type: 11.2 seconds from 0-62mph, an 83mph top speed and a 750kg towing capacity.

New Vauxhall Combo-e Life MPV priced at £31,160

You can recharge it using a 7.4kW wallbox (a three-phase 11kW one is also available), which takes 7.5 and five hours respectively. Plug in to a costlier public charger and it can charge at up to 100kW, giving an 80% top-up in half an hour. The accompanying MyPeugeot phone app lets you choose when the charging starts to take advantage of cheaper tariffs.

There are three modes, which give you different amounts of power depending on whether you want to prioritise economy or performance, and two settings for the brake regeneration system.

Two trim levels are available from launch: the standard five-seater Allure Premium and the five-seater GT variant, which starts at £32,455. Customers also have the option of a long wheelbase seven-seater Allure Premium, which is £32,375. All versions of the e-Rifter qualify for the government’s plug-in car grant.

The new model is equipped with Peugeot’s digital i-Cockpit interior, available with both a 10-inch digital instrument panel and a digital central display. The 10-inch central touchscreen gives drivers access to live energy flows, energy efficiency data and charge status while on the road. Drivers can also set delayed charging and view public charging points via the navigation menu.

Peugeot has confirmed that the e-Rifter is available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus convenience and driver assistance features like keyless entry and go, a reversing camera, auto high-beam assist, speed sign recognition, lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring.

The e-Rifter Allure Premium comes with 16-inch aluminium wheels as standard, while GT cars sit on larger, 17-inch wheels.

Buyers can also choose from ‘Standard’ and ‘Long’ body styles, and both can be specced with five or seven seats. The Standard five-seater offers 775 litres of boot space, which rises to an astonishing 4,000 litres if you fold the seats down on the Long version. There are myriad storage cubbies dotted around the cabin too, providing up to 186 litres of additional capacity, and you can open the rear window without opening the whole tailgate.

First deliveries of the Peugeot e-Rifter are expected in November 2021.
