Citroën UK has announced details of its new ë-SpaceTourer range. The changes see the removal of the existing ‘Business’ and ‘Feel’ trim levels, replacing them with new ‘Business Edition’ and ‘Flair’ versions.
The introduction of the new ‘Business Edition’ trim means ë-SpaceTourer now complies with the new pricing threshold to benefit from the Government’s Plug-In Car Grant (PICG).
Including PICG, the pricing for the new ë-SpaceTourer range now starts from only £31,995 for the ‘Business Edition’, versus £48,615 for the outgoing ‘Business’ trim level, representing truly good value for customers. This price reduction forms part of Citroën UK’s on-going ‘Fair Pricing’ policy, which was announced as part of the ‘Citroën Advance UK’ plan in Q4 2020. This long-term and fundamental change to the UK business model has seen list prices right across the vehicle range reduce to fairer and transparent levels.
The new ë-SpaceTourer ‘Business Edition’ is capable of seating up to nine passengers, with three rows of three seats. ‘Business Edition’ trim boasts a dual front passenger bench with under seat storage, while the second and third rows feature a 1/3 – 2/3 split design and removable seats. The second row features Isofix anchorage points as standard. In addition, the new lead-in ‘Business Edition’ also enjoys air conditioning, cruise control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 7-inch touchscreen and a driver attention alert system.
The top of the range ‘Flair’ model boasts a wealth of additional standard specification, including 17-inch ‘Curve’ diamond-cut bi-tone alloy wheels, body-colour exterior door handles and a panoramic glass roof. Inside, the ‘Flair’ version comes with eight seats, upholstered in Claudia Mistral leather, with driver and front passenger seats featuring heating and massage functions. All models also feature Citroën Connect Nav with real time traffic alerts, as well as Citroën Connect Box that alerts assistance or emergency services in the event of an incident or accident. The ‘Flair’ trim also features a programmable cruise control system with speed limiter, a head-up display and blind spot monitoring for enhanced safety.
New 100% electric Citroën ë-SpaceTourer is powered by a 50kWh battery, connected to a 100kW (136hp) electric motor. Under WLTP testing, new ë-SpaceTourer has a range of up to 143 miles on a single charge.
Supporting up to 100kW rapid charging, an 80% re-charge will take just 30 minutes. A full charge from a 7.4kW domestic Wallbox takes seven hours and 30 minutes. For peace of mind, the Lithium-ion battery pack in Citroën ë-SpaceTourer benefits from an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty for up to 70% of battery capacity.
The new ‘Business Edition’ and ‘Flair’ trim levels are available in the Medium (M) body style, at 4,959mm in length.
Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK, commented: “As part of Citroën’s Fair Pricing policy, we’ve updated the ë-SpaceTourer model range so it continues to represent excellent value for our customers. With the new Business Edition trim level, ë-SpaceTourer is now eligible for the Government’s amended Plug-in Car Grant, following changes to the programme made earlier this year. With low Benefit-in-Kind rates and TCO, class-leading practicality and technologies, the new ë-SpaceTourer is now an ideal option for many more private and business customers.”
