Citroen E-Spacetourer Undergoes Major Update for 2024
Changes include new battery options, redesigned exterior and interior tech improvements
Auto conglomerate Stellantis has unveiled a series of updates to the Citroen E-Spacetourer. This latest iteration of the vehicle reflects a significant overhaul, with improvements encompassing a new battery, a redesigned exterior, and updated internal technology features.
The E-Spacetourer, which serves as Citroen’s people-carrier model and is based on the Dispatch, their mid-sized van, now aligns with similar products from Stellantis, such as the Vauxhall Vivaro Life Electric and the Peugeot E-Traveller. Both of these models have also recently undergone their respective 2024 updates.
Externally, the most noticeable changes to the E-Spacetourer are at the front. The vehicle sports Citroen's reimagined badge, echoing its 1919 design, on the new blanked-off grille. Newly designed headlights feature a distinctive daytime running-light signature.
The vehicle also introduces several new metallic paint options and is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the E-Spacetourer boasts a 10-inch touchscreen and a driver’s display of the same size. It offers smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with the added option of a wireless smartphone charger. Additionally, the interior has been reconfigured for improved ergonomics and convenience, including a redesigned gear lever and driving mode selector, as well as a newly designed, heated steering wheel.
In terms of its configuration, the all-electric E-Spacetourer is now available in two lengths, namely M and L, with the former measuring 4.98 metres and the latter 5.33 metres.
The vehicle caters to a range of seating preferences, offering private customers options ranging from five to eight seats, while professional clients have the choice of up to nine seats. One of the notable features for professional use is the ‘Business Lounge’ pack, which offers a reversible second row and a seven-seat layout.
Practicality is a key aspect of the new design. The front passenger seat can be folded to accommodate longer items, and the second and third-row seats offer flexible configurations.
The L-bodied version of the E-Spacetourer offers up to 4,554 litres of boot space. Additional practical features include hands-free operation of the side door and a tailgate with an opening rear window, designed for ease of use in tight parking spaces.
Underneath, the E-Spacetourer has seen significant updates, most notably with its new 75kWh battery, providing a maximum range of 217 miles. There is also a 50kWh battery version, with a 139-mile range. Both models are powered by a 136bhp electric motor and feature a new regenerative braking system with adjustable settings.
The E-Spacetourer is equipped with a standard 7.4kW onboard charger, and an 11kW charger is available as an option. The charging system is designed to accommodate rapid recharging, with the ability to recharge the battery from 0 to 80% in 38 to 45 minutes, depending on the battery size.
While the pricing for the 2024 all-electric E-Spacetourer has not yet been announced, it is expected to be slightly higher than the current model, which is priced at £37,045.
