Peugeot e-Traveller Van is Now 100% Electric
A fully electric van? Yep, it’s 2020 and the world is changing in many different ways, a pandemic nuclear bomb, mass unemployment, protests etc. It’s as if a dystopian future has wreaked havoc rather too early. The Peugeot e-Traveller is one bold step into the future unknown, it is fully electric which means it is… an electric van. Traditionally vans end up in the hands of hoodie wearing hoodlums who tend to attach an extendable ladder to the roof. They then travel the country looking for remote country estates with the intention of helping themselves to whatever they can burgle.
But there is a problem with the Peugeot e-Traveller, it has a short range so those extendable ladder carrying hoddie wearing hoodlums will have a lot of thinking to do. Which means van related crime will decrease. Nevertheless, the all-new Peugeot e-Traveller has a range of up to 143 miles (230km) WLTP with a 50kWh battery capacity, two body lengths and up to eight seats.
The all-new Peugeot e-Traveller is available in the UK in two lengths: Standard (4.95 m) and Long (5.30 m). The all new e-Traveller can carry up to eight people with 1500 litres of boot volume, up to five people with 3000 litres or 4900 litres due to its removable seats in row two and three.
Available in multiple set-ups adapted for passenger or professional transport, the e-Traveller is designed for short-range deliveries/journeys. The e-Traveller has a changeable seat layout to maximise interior space. Aviation screens in the second-row house integrated sun blinds.
Standard interior equipment includes a head-up display with colour matrix, suitable for electric. Specific graphics for the central touch screen with TomTom Traffic 3D connected Navigation. A new “e-Toggle” automatic gearbox control. A drive mode selector to switch between Eco, Normal or Power modes. An electric parking brake. A number of advanced driver assistance systems, as well as Mirror Screen compatibility, including Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
The electric powertrain delivers a maximum power of 100 kW and a maximum torque of 260 Nm. The maximum speed is rated at 80mph (130 km/h) and 0 to 62mph (100 km/h) in 13.1 s.
Two types of on-board chargers are available, a 7.4 kW single-phase charger as standard, or an 11 kW three-phase charger (available as an option). The battery is guaranteed for eight years or 100,000 miles (160,000 km) for 70% of its charge capacity. Charging modes available are as follows:
- From a standard domestic socket: 31h
- From a 7.4 kW charge point: 7h30
- From an 11 kW charge point: 5h
- From a public rapid charge terminal: 100 kW chargers allow 80% charge in 30 mn
The all-new Peugeot e-Traveller will be sold in Europe in the second half of 2020, pricing will be announced accordingly.
