The new all-ëlectric Citroën ë-Dispatch offers all the advantages of the combustion-engine versions of Dispatch van in terms of character, dimensions, load volume and payload.
This compact van’s move to electric means users have the freedom to access urban centres, while allowing longer periods between charges. It increases driver and passenger comfort, thanks to its driveability and acoustics, while helping to reduce CO² emissions.
It also offers a plethora of practical equipment for professional users, to improve ease of use in daily life.
Three trim levels
The all-ëlectric Citroën ë-Dispatch comes in three well-specified trim levels to meet the needs of fleet and business users:
The ‘X’ version offers all the essential features you expect in a Citroën LCV. Standard specification includes electric and heated door mirrors, electric parking brake and twin unglazed rear doors opening 180°. Inside, there is air-conditioning, DAB radio with Bluetooth®, Citroen Connect Box with Emergency & Assistance function, and cruise control with a programmable speed-limiter.
‘Enterprise’ is arguably the most the most versatile version, adding rear parking sensors, a Thatcham category one alarm, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, 7-inch colour touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto, and the Moduwork® dual passenger bench, with fold-up outer seat, a fold-down writing table in the central seat back and storage under the central seat.
