We have the new Citroen e-Dispatch in stock and ready to drive away. This amazing van is still perfect for a huge range of jobs, still looks great but has gone green without comprising anything. Why not come to our van centre in Surrey and see for yourself.
The Citroen e-Dispatch is a fully electric van that offers a wealth of features designed to support your business and meet all your needs. Key features include a competitive payload, comfort, impressive performance, safety and driving range in excess of 200 miles. This industry gamechanger will allow you to enjoy lower motoring costs and reduce the environmental impact of your business.
Citroen Dispatch Electric Range and Charging
The e-Dispatch features a high voltage battery, providing a capacity choice of either a 50kWh offering a range of up to 143 miles, or 75kWh offering a range of up to 205 miles. What’s more, the battery comes with an 8 year or 100,000-mile guarantee. Charging time varies depending on the power of the charger. A basic 7.4kW home charger (known as a wallbox) will charge the smaller battery in approximately 7 hours 30 minutes and the larger battery in 11 hours and 20 minutes. A more powerful 11kW wallbox would decrease the charge time to 4 hours 45 minutes and 7 hours. In addition, powerful public chargers can provide an 80% charge to the smaller battery in 30 minutes and the large battery in 45 minutes.
Citroen e-Dispatch Performance
Out on the road, the 134bhp electric motor provides a highly enjoyable driving experience, delivering 260Nm of torque. With the way electric motors work, this torque is instantly available at all speeds, providing the ability to shift the Citroen’s maximum payload without struggle. Three driving modes are available: Eco, Normal, and Sport. These modes will change the performance of the van for your driving needs. Eco mode limits the power of the motor to conserve range, whereas Sport mode will allow faster acceleration.
