Ë-JUMPY’S KEYS OF SUCCESS
New Citroën ë-Jumpy offers all the advantages of the combustion version in terms of character, dimensions, loading volume and payload, in addition to the comfort of an electric vehicle:
Professionals can choose the driving range that better suits their daily tasks. Two driving-range options are available covering the majority of professional needs in this segment, whether it’s driving to a building site, making a delivery or transporting people: 230km on the WLTP cycle with a 50kWh battery, or 330km with a 75kWh battery.
This compact van’s moving to electric, provides freedom to access all urban centres while also allowing longer drive times between charges.
Comfort is particularly improved thanks to its driveability and the absence of noise and vibrations. Its 100kW engine can easily reach a top speed of 130km/h with torque immediately available on starting without changing gears. It provides complete peace of mind in a hectic work environment.
Ease of use:
ë-Jumpy can be easily charged at home (a mode 2 cable with standard 8A socket or a 16A Green’Up enhanced socket), at a private or public charging station (a 32A mode 3 cable, with a Wallbox) or a super-fast public charging station that can recharge 80% of the battery in 30 minutes only. ë-Jumpy’s 7” touch screen gives an array of electrical information about the vehicle, such as energy flow, consumption statistics, deferred charging, and thermal pre-conditioning.
The Best of Jumpy
Nothing has been compromised when it comes to the features that make everyday life easier for professionals using the combustion version. ë-Jumpy comes in three models and three lengths; its height of 1.90m ensures access to all car parks, and its useful payload and volume are identical to its thermal version: up to 6.6m3 of useful volume, 1275kg payload, useful width of 1.25m between the wheel arches, Moduwork, etc.
And like any good commercial vehicle designed for professionals and tradesmen/women, its cost per use remains reasonable.
Once again Citroën has demonstrated its expertise when it comes to commercial vehicles along with its desire to provide practical solutions to its customers. In this period of energy transition, New Citroën ë-Jumpy has proved itself to be an indispensable work tool for professionals, local authorities and associations. It combines the best of Jumpy's tried and tested features with all the benefits of an electric motor resulting in greater convenience, comfort, freedom of movement and reduced running costs.
