Peugeot has introduced a new addition to its expanding EV lineup. The E-Traveller is intended for professional drivers and promises a balance of flair, comfort, and efficiency.
The E-Traveller comes in two lengths: Standard (4.98 m) and Long (5.33 m), with a height of 1.90 m, making it appropriate for most parking lots. The cabin is surprisingly roomy, with options that can seat up to 9 people and have a trunk volume of 1,500 l, or provide up to 4,900 l of load volume with fewer passengers.

The E-Traveller is propelled by a single electric motor with a maximum power output of 100 kW (136 bhp) and torque output of 260 Nm. The top speed is limited to 130 kilometers per hour.
The E-Traveller has two battery capacities: a 50 kWh battery with a range of up to 224 km and a 75 kWh battery with a range of up to 350 km. They can be charged at a DC charging station at up to 100 kW, going from 5% to 80% in 38 minutes for the 50 kWh battery and 45 minutes for the 75 kWh battery. An 11kW wall box at home can charge a 50 kWh battery in 4 hours and 50 minutes and a 75 kWh battery in 7 hours and 30 minutes.
Its front end has been totally revamped, with the new Peugeot 3 claw hallmark, full LED headlights, and a bumper optimized for protection and aerodynamics. This change improves the vehicle’s aerodynamics and, as a result, efficiency.
Depending on the version, the inside of the E-Traveller features new fabric or perforated leather for the seats, as well as liquid palladium-colored trim on the side panels. The dashboard now has an e-toggle gearshift control, a digital instrument cluster, a huge center touchscreen, and more storage space.
A 10″ digital color instrument cluster controls the audio system and connected navigation, while the OK PEUGEOT voice assistant accepts commands in natural language.
Driver tiredness warning, traffic sign recognition, lane keeping assist, automated emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, and adaptive cruise control are all standard features on the vehicle.
The E-Traveller is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as over-the-air system updates. The car also includes a wireless smartphone charger as well as several USB-C and 12V ports to keep the driver and passengers connected while on the road.
The vehicle is intended for professional transportation needs, such as hotel shuttles and taxis, as well as clubs and associations. For more expensive settings, the firm offers a specific VIP trim level with a lounge arrangement and luxury finishes. Pricing and availability for the Peugeot E-Traveller will be announced later.
