citroen e-dispatch

The all-electric Citroën ë-Dispatch is now available for operators to order in the UK.

The manufacturer said the van offers the same advantages as conventionally-powered models, such as load volumes up to 6.6m3 and payloads up to 1,262kg.

It is offered in three different lengths – 4.6m, 4.95m and 5.3m – to suit different business needs, with the smallest XS model said to be highly practical for city use.

Available with two operating ranges – up to 148 miles (WLTP cycle) if fitted with a 50kWh battery and 211 miles if using a 75kWh batery – ë-Dispatch enables operators to work in urban areas with zero emissions, and undertake longer journeys when needed.

Three trim levels are offered: the essential ‘X’ version; the versatile ‘Enterprise’ specification; and safety-focused ‘Driver’ pack.

The ë-Dispatch is available from £25,053 (excluding VAT and after Plug-in Van Grant once eligibility for scheme is approved).

First deliveries will arrive in UK dealerships during the second half of 2020.
