The e-Rifter will appear in car showrooms this autumn and is capable of up to 171 miles from a single charge. It has a towing capacity of up to 750kg and up to 4,000-litres of boot space. The 100kw (136hp) electric powertrain is capable of up to 260Nm of torque.
With a top speed of 83mph, the e-Rifter can accelerate from 0-62mph in 11.2-seconds. It comes standard with a 7.4kW single-phase charger and with an optional 11 kW three-phase charger. It supports a variety of charging methods. The e-Rifter can be charged using wallbox or 100 kW rapid charging. A full charge from a 7.4 kW Wallbox will take 7.5 hours, or 5 hours using the optional 11kW three-phase charger. Supporting rapid charging, 0 to 80 percent charge can be completed in just 30 minutes using a 100 kWh rapid charger.
“The new e-Rifter is our latest electric model, and is one step closer to fulfilling our promise of offering an electrified variant across our entire model line-up by 2023” said Julie David, Managing Director of Peugeot UK. “With a range of practical features, and available in five or seven-seat configurations, we believe the e-Rifter is the ideal choice for both families and businesses looking for a versatile, zero-emissions vehicle and are excited to introduce it to our customers later this year.”
Using the MyPEUGEOT smartphone app, owners can schedule delayed charging to take advantage of off-peak electricity tariffs. The vehicle also comes with three driving modes and two regenerative braking modes to optimise battery range and vehicle performance.
