Landing in the second half of 2020, the 100% electric version of the Citroën utility, dubbed ë-Jumpy, offers up to 330 km of range and 6.6 m3 of cargo space.
The Opel version had the scoop a few days ago. The Vivaro-e, a pure product of the PSA group, revealed its unique electric range with 136 horsepower (100 kW) engine. We knew that the Peugeot (with the e-Expert) and Citroën brands would quickly draw, so here is the chevron model.
Two batteries, 3 models, 4 finishes
If you were familiar with diesel versions, no design revolution. Only a full radiator grille, the rear logo and the hatch on the front left identify this electric version. Like its cousin, two versions are on the program. The first with 50 kWh battery promises 230 km of WLTP autonomy, against 330 km for the second with 75 kWh pack. The van is also available in three sizes: XS, M and XL. 5.3 meters long, the latter allows 6.6 m3 of loading. Charging is based on the Opel Vivaro, with 100 kW possible in DC current via the Combo standard, i.e. 45 minutes to recover 80% of the 75 kWh battery. In AC, the power can reach 11 kW as an option.
By the way, we note that the name of electric cars will start with “ë”. We had revealed this information to you with the future ë-C4 which will be presented on June 30. This Citroën ë-Jumpy therefore strengthens the range of electric utility vehicles from the chevron brand. It thus supports the Berlingo Electric, which will be renewed in ë-Berlingo in 2021, and will be joined by the e-Jumper in autumn 2020.
The date of marketing and the prices have not yet been specified by the brand. Utility will be available “In the second semester” and will be available in four finish levels (Control, Club, Driver and CityVan). In terms of warranty, the manufacturer announces 8 years or 160,000 km on the engine and the batteries.
