WHEN the world gets back to normal, travellers can look forward to a new greener way to get from the airport to their final destination in the shape of the new electrically-powered Peugeot e-Traveller.
Aimed at larger families as well as executive transfer and taxi services the newcomer is due to be launched in the second half of this year and will come in two body lengths - 4.95 and 5.3 mtrs - with seats for up to eight people in three rows. Seats in the second and third rows slide or can be removed entirely to create more space if required.
With the battery pack mounted under the floor, there's no impact on luggage space which ranges from 1,500 to 4,900 litres depending on the seating configuration. Luggage is accessed through an opening rear window.
Based on the PSA Group's EMP2 multi-energy modular platform, the e-Traveller's 100 per cent electric powertrain has a 50kWh battery offering a range of up to 143 miles on a single charge. It takes just half an hour for an 80 per cent recharge from a 100kW public rapid charge terminal.
Drivers can select from three driving modes - Eco for optimising range, Normal or Power for peak performance with a top speed of 80mph in Power mode.
