A new E-Traveller van from Peugeot has been quietly unveiled in Europe. It will be available in multiple configurations to suit the needs of different passenger transport operators, including shuttle services, hotels, and taxis.
Peugeot has updated the design of the new E-Traveller. with a new bumper and LED headlights added to the front fascia. A new dashboard featuring a 10-inch digital instrument cluster and a sizable 10-inch infotainment display is installed in the cabin. There is a wireless smartphone charger on the center console, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are both supported.
The new Peugeot E-Traveller is available in two lengths: 4.98 meters for the standard version and 5.33 meters for the Long version. Buyers can select from a variety of seat arrangements ranging from five to nine. The five-seater, which has four separate seats facing each other in a lounge configuration, is the most opulent.
The E-Traveller has 3,000 liters of cargo capacity in this configuration; if you choose the 9-seater, the new Peugeot still has an amazing 1,500 liters of room for your bags. With only two or three passengers, the load volume increases to 4,900 liters.
For the van, two distinct battery packs have been designed. The first is a 50 kWh pack, which on the WLTP combined cycle gives the E-Traveller an estimated range of 224 km. It is anticipated that the larger 75 kWh battery will last 350 km. A single 136 horsepower and 260 Nm torque electric motor powers both variants. With a maximum speed of 130 km/h, the van provides 100 kW DC fast-charging assistance. As a result, it takes 38 minutes for the 50 kWh version to charge from 5 to 80%, whereas it takes 45 minutes for the 75 kWh pack.
The E-Traveller features paddle shifters on the steering wheel to select between three levels of regenerative braking, just like other EVs on the market. A more potent 11 kW three-phase charger is an option, and it also comes with a 7.4 kW single-phase on-board charger.
Many safety features are also included as standard. These consist of adaptive cruise control, traction control settings for sand, mud, and snow, automatic emergency braking with detection of pedestrians and cyclists, traffic sign recognition, and warning systems for driver fatigue.
