French automaker Peugeot has discreetly introduced the E-Traveller electric van in Europe, catering to the diverse needs of passenger transport services such as hotels, shuttles, and taxis. The E-Traveller is available in both standard (4.98 meters) and Long (5.33 meters) versions, offering configurations ranging from 5 to 9 seats.
The E-Traveller provides versatility with seating arrangements, including a luxurious five-seater lounge configuration with four independent seats facing each other, offering 3,000 liters of cargo space. Opting for the nine-seater version still provides an impressive 1,500 liters of luggage space, expanding to 4,900 liters with just 2 or 3 passengers on board.
Equipped with two battery options, the first is a 50 kWh pack delivering an estimated 224 km of range, while the larger 75 kWh battery extends the range to 350 km. Both versions feature a single electric motor with 136 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque, reaching a top speed of 130 km/h and supporting 100 kW DC fast-charging.
The E-Traveller features regenerative braking options with paddle shifters, a 7.4 kW single-phase onboard charger, and an optional 11 kW three-phase charger. The exterior design has been refreshed with new LED headlights and an updated bumper, while the interior boasts a modern look with a revised dashboard, a 10-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 10-inch infotainment display supporting wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Safety features include driver fatigue warning, traffic sign recognition, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, and traction control settings for various terrains. The E-Traveller's discreet entry into the market aligns with Peugeot's commitment to electric mobility, offering practical solutions for passenger transport services.
