Every year a group of Jury, which is consist of 24 independent journalists and magazine editors specialized in Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) gather around to choose the bests of the year. Now the “International Van of the Year 2021” went to Citroen e-Jumpy. Also, in 2019 Citroen with its Citroen Berlingo Van was the holder of this title. For the record, this is the sixth time in the history of this highly coveted prize that Citroen has been honored.
Citroen e-Jumpy started its production in previous May. And now just after some month it won the title of “International Van of The Year 2021”. Many factors were included to choose this van for the title. The comfort, dynamic qualities and loading capacity combined with the benefits of the best electrical technology, all of them were enough for Jumpy to jump up to the first stage. Vincent Cobée - CEO of Citroën did say:
The electric version of Jumpy provides professionals with practical solutions to new mobility challenges in urban and rural areas thanks to its driving range that allows most journeys in unprecedented comfort while keeping all the useful features of its combustion counterpart. New e-Jumpy is faithful to Citroen’s strategy of designing tailor-made solutions that meet the expectations of our commercial customers
Maybe Citroen e-Jumpy isn’t the luxury car that you were expected to be, but as this vehicle can provide every thing we need in a compact van, that can be the real key of success. This electric van has all the features of a combustion Van like the dimensions, loading volume and payload, and also comfort. This van is not just very suitable for daily tasks, also it can provide acceptable speed for the urban surfing. This van can go 230km on the WLTP cycle with a 50kWh battery, or 330km with a 75kWh battery.
The other advances for the Jumpy are the quite interior, the top speed of 130 km/h, the very fast charge (just in 30 minutes 80% of battery is full) and the 7 inches touch screen with information of energy flow, consumption statistics, deferred charging, and thermal pre-conditioning.
This van can do everything that a combustion van can do.it has the same 1275 kg payload with up to 6.6m3 volume. Moreover, you should worry about the carpark too. This van can be a perfect choice not for the families, but also professional uses too.
