Available in Active or Allure trim, the e-Traveller meets the different needs of families thanks to its changeable seat layout, with sliding and removable capabilities.

Innovative features for the electric van include Grip Control; a reinforced drive system that adapts to varying terrain. The driver can select, via a dial on the dashboard, the traction mode required (Snow, All-Travel, Sand, ESC off).

Luggage in the boot can be easily accessed due to an opening rear window. Available from two to eight seats, with space, practicality, comfort and an easily cleanable interior, the zero emission Peugeot e-Traveller can cater for numerous customer needs.

The all-new Peugeot e-Traveller is available in the UK in two lengths: Standard (4.95m) and Long (5.30m). The van’s height is 1.90m.

e-Traveller can carry up to eight people with 1,500 litres of boot volume, up to five people with 3,000 litres or 4,900 litres due to its removable seats in rows two and three. Interior storage compartments total an addition 74 litres of space.

The van’s towing ability is restricted to 1,000kg due to the electric powertrain.

Performance is taken care of by the 136hp electric motor, powered by a 50kWh battery. 0-62mph acceleration takes 13.1 seconds, while top speed is 80mph.

Two types of on-board chargers are available, a 7.4kW single-phase charger as standard, or an 11kW three-phase charger (available as an option). These equate to 7h30 (7.4kW) and 5hr (11kW) charge times respectively, while plugging into a standard UK three-pin socket will entail a length 31 hours. Conversely, plugging into a 100kW rapid charger will see the battery rise from 0-80% charge in 30 minutes.

The van also comes with Peugeot’s handy MobilityPass rental scheme, which provides access to an internal combustion vehicle for a longer trip when required.

The Peugeot e-Traveller is available with a number of driver assistance systems, as well as Mirror Screen compatibility, including Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

The Peugeot e-Traveller will be sold in Europe in the second half of 2020.
