CITROEN and Peugeot have announced more details about their electric people movers the first of which should be on the road before the year is out.

The e-SpaceTourer will be arriving first and deliveries are expected from November while the Peugeot is due on stream next year.
Prices for the e-SpaceTourer start from £45,600 after the Government grant for low emission vehicles and although Peugeot still has to confirm prices for the e-Traveller they are expected to be similar.
The e-SpaceTourer can be configured as a nine-seater in entry-level Business trim while a Feel version aimed more at families will be priced from £46,250.
Feel versions come as standard with a child observation mirror, rail-mounted rear seats for optimum modularity, a load restraint net in the boot and automatic dual-zone climate control with six ceiling mounted air vents.
The Business trim is aimed at professional users and come with a hardwearing TPO floor for improved durability.
Both models will take up to seven hours 30 minutes for a full charge from a 7.4kW domestic Wallbox takes.
