PSA Previews Peugeot Boxer And Citroën Jumper Electric Vans

PSA is displaying the upcoming electric versions of the Peugeot Boxer and Citroën Jumper (sold as the Relay in the UK) at the Birmingham Commercial Vehicle Show that takes place between April 30 and May 2.

The Boxer Electric and Jumper/Relay Electric large vans will offer two levels of autonomy depending on the version: 141 miles (227 km) in the NEDC cycle for the L1 and L2 lengths, and 169 miles (272 km) for the L3 and L4.

PSA will build the Boxer Electric and Jumper/Relay Electric alongside the ICE-powered versions at the Sevel plant in Val di Sangro, Italy. The vehicles will then by electrified and homologated by partner BD Auto. No other details were offered regarding the battery packs and electric motors.

However, the company said the move is in line with its “Push to Pass” strategic plan which calls for the electrification of its entire range of passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

“This new offer is a major competitive advantage for our brands in a very competitive LCV segment. This is an opportunity to strengthen our leadership in Europe by meeting the new needs of zero-emission driving without giving up the useful services related to the demanding uses of our professional customers,” said Philippe Narbeburu, Senior Vice-President, Light Commercial Vehicles Groupe PSA Business Unit.

PSA also said it will offer electrified versions of its medium vans, namely the Peugeot Expert and Traveller, Citroën Dispatch and SpaceTourer, as well as Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro and Vivaro Life, starting next year. Moreover, the Peugeot Partner, Citroën Berlingo, and Opel/Vauxhall Combo compact vans will also get electrified versions in 2021.

    Why ndc cycle and not the new wltp cycle?

    • It’s easier to get a higher range. The actual range will more likely be around 150 km but they’d rather advertise with 220 or 270 because they probably think the consumer doesn’t know the difference. They are still allowed to use NEDC in advertising, Opel does the same

    That black (un painted) bumpers are sicking ugly. They should stop doing that. And I mean every body,

    • Alex87f

      They’re cheaper to produce and to maintain, and that’s what the pro public is after.

      • Bash

        I knew someone will throw this statement! Come on!

    • Matt

      Trust me, on a commercial vehicle that is more prone to scrapes and dings a big painted bumper starts to look really crappy after a while. The unpainted bumper hides marks easily and as already stated is far more practical for commercial operators.

      • Bash

        Yeah I understand that.

    • Able

      Have you ever been to Paris?

      • mist

        That’s also true for Italy, it’s an Italian-French van.

      • Bash

        Nope.
