All-new 2021 Peugeot e-Rifter MPV unveiled

KUALA LUMPUR: Peugeot has unveiled a new electric van-based MPV that goes by the name e-Rifter. Peugeot built the said electric van by joining hands with Vauxhall and Citron. It is to be noted that the two automakers have a similar product in their line-up - the Vauxhall Combo-e and Citroen e-Berlingo. And since Peugeot, Vauxhall, and Citroen are in a joint venture, their respective electric MPVs share the same battery and drivetrain tech.

On a full charge, the new e-Rifter can go for a good 275 km (as per WLTP certification).

Coming to e-Rifter's performance figures, it can complete the 0-100 km sprint in 11.2 seconds and can attain a top speed of 134 kmph, a tad bit quicker than the e-Partner.

Like the e-Expert and e-Partner, the e-Rifter features three driving modes - normal, eco, and power. With each mode, the system modifies the amount of battery power available by switching between maximizing range and performance.

The French automaker is offering the electric MPV in two trim options - Allure Premium and GT. Both can be picked in either 'Standard' or 'Long' variant options. The difference? While both are offered in 5-and 7-seat configuration, there is a difference in the boot space and length.
