Citroën UK has announced details of its new all-electric ë-SpaceTourer range. The changes see the removal of the existing ‘Business’ and ‘Feel’ trim levels, replacing them with new ‘Business Edition’ and ‘Flair’ versions.
The introduction of the new ‘Business Edition’ trim means ë-SpaceTourer, which starts from £31,995, is now eligible for the government’s Plug-In Car Grant (PICG). This is a saving of £14,000 over the outgoing ‘Business’ model. This is great news for potential customers of the zero-emissions ë-SpaceTourer.
This substantial price reduction forms part of Citroën UK’s ongoing ‘Fair Pricing’ policy. This was announced as part of the ‘Citroën Advance UK’ plan in Q4 2020. The higher-spec Flair model starts from £47,595.
The new ë-SpaceTourer ‘Business Edition’ is capable of seating up to nine passengers, with three rows of three seats. The ‘Business Edition’ trim boasts a dual front passenger bench with under-seat storage, while the second and third rows feature a 1/3 – 2/3 split design and removable seats. The second row features Isofix anchorage points as standard.
The new Citroën ë-SpaceTourer battery electric vehicle (BEV) is powered by a 50kWh battery, which is connected to a 100kW (136hp) electric motor. This delivers a range of up to 143 miles (230km) on a single charge.
It supports up to 100kW rapid charging, with a charge of up to 80 percent taking just 30 minutes. A full charge from a 7.4kW domestic Wallbox takes seven and a half hours. For total peace of mind, the battery pack benefits from an eight-year/100,000 mile (160,000km) warranty for up to 70 percent of battery capacity.
Eurig Druce, Citroën UK managing director, commented: “As part of Citroën’s Fair Pricing policy, we’ve updated the ë-SpaceTourer model range so it continues to represent excellent value for our customers.
“With the new Business Edition trim level, ë-SpaceTourer is now eligible for the Government’s amended Plug-in Car Grant, following changes to the programme made earlier this year.
“With low Benefit-in-Kind rates and TCO, class-leading practicality and technologies, the new ë-SpaceTourer is now an ideal option for many more private and business customers.”
The new Citroën ë-SpaceTourer range is available to order now, with first deliveries anticipated from August.
