The all-electric Multi-Purpose-Vehicle range now starts from only £31,995 for the ‘Business Edition', versus £48,615 for the outgoing ‘Business' trim level – a massive reduction of £16,620.
The introduction of the new ‘Business Edition' trim means ë-SpaceTourer now complies with the new pricing threshold to benefit from the Government's Plug-In Car Grant.
The new ë-SpaceTourer ‘Business Edition' is capable of seating up to nine passengers, with three rows of three seats.
The electric Citroën is powered by a 50kWh battery, connected to a 100kW (136hp) electric motor. Under WLTP testing, it has a range of up to 143 miles on a single charge.
With the ë-SpaceTourer supporting up to 100kW rapid charging, an 80% re-charge will take just 30 minutes. A full charge from a 7.4kW domestic wall box takes seven hours and 30 minutes. The Lithium-ion battery pack in the ë-SpaceTourer benefits from an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty for up to 70% of battery capacity.
The top of the range ‘Flair' model, with a starting price of £47,595, boasts a wealth of additional standard specification, including 17-inch ‘Curve' diamond-cut bi-tone alloy wheels, body-colour exterior door handles and a panoramic glass roof.
Also, all models feature Citroën Connect Nav with real time traffic alerts, as well as Citroën Connect Box that alerts assistance or emergency services in the event of an incident or accident.
The new ‘Business Edition' and ‘Flair' trim levels are available in the medium body style, at 4,959mm in length.
Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK said the with the new offer the ë-SpaceTourer will appeal to a greater audience and attract more 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,” he said. “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.”
