Peugeot has opened the order books for its all-new e-Rifter, with first deliveries expected in November this year.
The e-Rifter, available in two trims, is built on the manufacturer’s multi-energy EMP2 platform with a 100kw (136hp) electric powertrain capable of up to 260Nm of torque.
It is powered by a 50kWh battery, allowing the vehicle to achieve up to 172 miles from a single charge.
Drivers are given a choice of three driving modes: Eco (60 kW/180 Nm), for optimising vehicle range, Normal (80 kW/220 Nm), for daily use and Power (100 kW/260 Nm), to optimise vehicle performance.
With a top speed limited to 83mph, the e-Rifter can accelerate from 0-62mph in 11.2-seconds.
The e-Rifter comes as standard with a 7.4kW single-phase on board charger, and an 11kW three-phase on board charger is available as an option.
A full charge via a 7.4kW Wallbox will take 7.5 hours, or five hours using the optional 11kW three-phase on board charger.
The Peugeot e-Rifter also supports rapid charging providing 0-80% power in 30 minutes when using a 100kW rapid charger.
In addition, all customers buying a new full electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle are eligible for a six-month free subscription to BP Pulse.
Vehicles come with a certificate of battery capacity after each service, with the lithium-ion battery guaranteed by an eight-year/100,000-miles warranty for 70% of its original charge capacity.
Julie David, managing director of Peugeot UK, said, “We’re delighted to open for order on our new Peugeot e-Rifter, the latest fully electrified model in our exciting electrification strategy.
“The e-Rifter provides drivers with comfortable space, a practical range and a host of technological aids to make driving easy in any environment.
“We hope that the Peugeot e-Rifter provides a practical solution for drivers wanting to make the transition over to electric.”
