PSA to expand line-up of electric vans

October 18, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

In 2020, the PSA Group will launch battery versions of its own compact commercial vans in two versions.

As the automaker emphasized, electric vans such as Peugeot Expert, Opel / Vauxhall Vivaro and Citroen Jumpy will be assembled at PSA in Horden, in northern France. And the engines will be manufactured at an enterprise in eastern France. At the same time, variations with traditional ICEs will be collected only in England.

According to the director of the PSA Group light commercial vehicle division, Xavier Peugeot, the entire model line of PSA vans will receive electrical modifications by 2021.

¬†All commercial vehicles of the concern will switch to the PSA group’s EMP2 architecture, designed to operate with electric and simple motors. It is also emphasized that electric cars with a battery of 50 kW / h will be able to travel up to 200 km on a single charge, and versions with a battery of 75 kW / h – up to 300 km.
