Introducing the Peugeot e-Rifter
The e-Rifter is a fully electric version of the quietly competent Rifter MPV, and makes use of Peugeot's latest electric vehicle powertrain technology to achieve optimum performance and an excellent maximum range.
Available in both Standard and Long wheelbase lengths, there are both 5-seat and 7-seat versions of the e-Rifter available to order from Evans Halshaw Peugeot dealers.
None of the superb practicality traits of the Rifter have been lost during the transition to electric. That means it's still super spacious inside, the boot is a good size and the sliding side doors make it simple to enter and exit the back seats.
Range and Performance
The e-Rifter has an official range of up to 171 miles according to WLTP testing. This is much higher than most daily mileage needs, meaning you can charge up overnight like you do your smartphone and be good to go the next day.
A 134bhp electric motor means 0 to 62mph acceleration takes 11.2 seconds, which is inline with the petrol models and quicker than the diesels. It's at home on the motorway too, with a top speed of 83mph.
Out on the road the e-Rifter makes for an enjoyable driving experience, with the near-silent electric motor resulting in great refinement. Drivers can choose between Eco, Normal and Power modes depending on whether they want to optimise range or performance at any given time.
Equipped with a 50kWh battery, the e-Rifter can be charged at home or at public rapid charging stations.
The standard charger is a 7.4kW single-phase unit and can fully juice the E-Rifter to 100 percent charge in seven and a half hours when connected to a home wall box. Upgrade to the 11kW three-phase charger to reduce this time to just five hours.
Out and about, the 100kW rapid charging capability of the e-Rifter allows you to complete an 80 charge in just 30 minutes at a 100kWh rapid charger, which are most commonly found at motorway service stations.
