Citroën’s biggest and most capacious van is now available to order in the UK with a choice of two all-electric drivetrains. A 37kWh battery connected to a 120hp (90kW) electric motor available exclusively in the L2 Panel Van, or a 70kWh battery unit connected to the same 120hp (90kW) motor for all other body types.
The 37kWh battery provides a WLTP certified range of up to 73 miles in the L2 Panel Van, while the 70kWh battery increases range up to 139 miles under WLTP testing for L3 and L4 variants.
The ë-Relay is available exclusively in well-appointed ‘Enterprise' trim, and can be ordered as a Panel Van, Window Van or Chassis Cab – to suit a wide variety of fleet and business needs. Panel Vans are available in L2 (5,413mm), L3 (5,998mm) and L4 (6,363mm) lengths, while the Window Van is offered exclusively in L4 form. Chassis Cabs come in the most popular L3 length only.
All new Citroën ë-Relay models feature a Type 2 charging cable as standard, supporting AC charging up to 22kW. A full charge from a 7kW wallbox unit will take 6 and 12 hours respectively for the 37kWh and 70kWh versions. Both battery packs also support up to 50kW rapid charging.
The price range goes from £55,335 of the entry level ë-Relay 35 Heavy L2H2 37kWh to £75,255 of ë-Relay 40 Heavy L4H2 70kWh. All the 37kWh and 70kWh batteries are covered by an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty.
All these models feature a 5-inch colour touchscreen with DAB radio and integrated satellite navigation, as well as air conditioning and a perimetric alarm. For ease of use, rear parking sensors are also included.
Instead of a conventional gear lever, three buttons allow the driver to select the vehicle driving mode (D, N, R). To obtain key information relating to the vehicle's efficiency, all new ë-Relay models boast a specific rear-view mirror (exclusive to electric versions), that displays key information to the driver, including battery charge level and remaining range.
