After the Citroën e-Jumpy, PSA unveils the electric version of its compact utility vehicles. Available in two autonomies (200 and 300 km), the Opel Vivaro-e and Peugeot e-Expert will be marketed in the second half of 2020.
Reducing CO2 emissions is not just about cars. The utilities are housed in the same boat which explains their electrification. By 2021, the PSA group will have a full range. The Peugeot Boxer Electric is expected very soon and will then follow the e-Expert in the second half of 2020 and the e-Partner in 2021. The schedule will be identical at Opel with the launch of the Vivaro-e and the Combo-e.
200 and 300 km of range
Developed on the electrified version of the EMP2 platform (which will also be used for the future e-3008 ), the e-Expert and Vivaro-e, cousins of the Citroën e-Jumpy, offer two battery sizes, 50 and 70 kWh , including the technology is identical to that of the Peugeot e-208. Consequently, these utilities offer 200 and 300 km of autonomy respectively. However, manufacturers do not communicate on the electric motor which will be similar to that of the e-208 and e-2008. Except for the hatch on the left front wing which hides the charging socket, these trendy versions have no aesthetic differences compared to the thermal models.
