Peugeot Rifter and Peugeot Traveller: MPVs now electric only
January 13, 2022 by
The Peugeot Rifter and Traveller are going to be electric only from January 2022. The Partner and Expert vans on which they’re based will still be available with conventional engines. Read on for all you need to know.
The Peugeot Rifter will no longer be available with internal combustion engines from January 2022, leaving only the e-Rifter electric car.
The e-Rifter shares the same EV tech as its stablemates from Citroen and Vauxhall. This means it gets a 50 kWh battery and 174 miles of range. If you can find a rapid charger, you can boost its charge from empty to 80% full in around half an hour.
You still get the same practicality the Rifter has always offered. The seats can be moved around easily to increase boot space or leg room easily, and it’s easy to drive thanks to its van-derived seating position.
If you need more space and more seats than the Rifter offers, there’s always the larger Traveller. Like the Rifter, it is now only available as an EV.
It shares its EV components from the Rifter, meaning it also has a 50kWh battery and can be recharged from empty to 80% in half an hour at a fast charger. The range is slightly reduced however as a result of its size. The e-Traveller has 143 miles of range.
The e-Traveller can be specified with up to eight seats and a cavernous boot. The batteries are stored under the floor as well, so they don’t impact on interior space.
