Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Citroën e-Dispatch Crew maintains a design that is both modern and functional, building on the aesthetics of its conventionally powered counterpart, the Dispatch. Its exterior presents a sleek and aerodynamic silhouette, with clean lines and subtle curves contributing to a visually appealing appearance. The front end features a distinctive grille with a bold Citroën logo, giving it an identity that aligns with the brand's design language.

The e-Dispatch Crew is designed with practicality in mind, making it suitable for a variety of business and personal applications. Its versatility lies in its ability to transition between a passenger and cargo carrier seamlessly. This adaptability is especially valuable for businesses that require both transporting people and delivering goods. In the Crew version, the e-Dispatch offers a flexible seating arrangement that can accommodate a driver and up to five passengers. The rear seats can be adjusted or folded down to create additional cargo space as needed. This practicality allows the van to cater to various scenarios, from transporting a work crew to carrying bulky items.

The boot space, or cargo area, of the Citroën e-Dispatch Crew is substantial and well-designed to facilitate efficient storage. While exact dimensions may vary depending on the seating configuration and optional features, the overall cargo capacity is impressive for a vehicle of its size and class.

With the ability to accommodate both passengers and cargo, the e-Dispatch Crew's boot space can be optimized based on the specific needs of the user. When configured for maximum cargo capacity, the rear seats can be folded down or removed entirely, providing a spacious area for transporting goods. This flexibility ensures that the e-Dispatch Crew is not only a people mover but also a capable cargo carrier.

Interior and Trims

The interior of the Citroën e-Dispatch Crew welcomes occupants with a spacious and thoughtfully designed cabin. Seamlessly combining comfort and functionality, the cabin accommodates up to six occupants, providing ample room for both passengers and the driver. The ergonomically designed seats ensure a comfortable journey, even during extended drives, and the adjustable driver's seat allows for a personalized driving position.

Crafted with a blend of quality materials, the e-Dispatch Crew's interior exudes a premium touch. Soft-touch surfaces, well-finished details, and durable fabrics create an inviting atmosphere that passengers will appreciate. This attention to detail is a testament to Citroën's commitment to enhancing the overall driving experience.

At the heart of the cabin lies an advanced infotainment system that keeps occupants connected and entertained. The intuitive touchscreen display serves as a hub for navigation, entertainment, and smartphone integration. With features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, seamless connectivity is at your fingertips, allowing you to stay in control while on the road.

One trim: Enterprise Edition.

Enterprise comes with 16-inch steel wheels, twin sliding side doors, 180° opening rear doors, manual air conditioning, rear parking sensors, height/lumbar adjustable driver's seat, dual passenger bench with a storage tray, hill start assist, automatic door locking, cruise control, and anti-lock braking.

Power and Performance

The Citroen e-Dispatch Crew is driven by a 100kW electric motor, which is coupled with either a 50kWh or 75kWh battery. Both configurations are mated to a single-speed automatic gearbox, delivering power to the front wheels.

With a top speed of 81mph, the Citroen e-Dispatch Crew may require a concerted effort to reach motorway velocities, and sustained high speeds can push the motor to its limits.

The driving range is estimated at 205 miles for the 75kWh battery which makes it an excellent choice for city commutes and short trips. However, for those frequently covering long distances across different locations, the diesel Dispatch might be a more suitable option.

To mitigate range concerns, you can efficiently incorporate recharging breaks into your driving routine. The e-Dispatch facilitates rapid charging at up to 100kW DC, allowing you to add approximately 100 miles of range in just about half an hour.

The Citroën e-Dispatch offers three distinct driving modes to cater to different preferences: Eco, Normal, and Sport. In Eco mode, power delivery is limited to approximately 60% to conserve energy, making it an optimal choice for urban environments and extending the electric range. Normal mode provides about 80% power, offering a balanced performance suitable for typical driving scenarios. On the other hand, Sport mode unlocks the full power potential of the vehicle, delivering a more dynamic and spirited driving experience.

No matter the chosen mode, the Citroen e-Dispatch Crew performs admirably on the road. Navigating city streets is a breeze, thanks to its responsive handling. Despite the added weight from the battery, the van's design ensures a comfortable ride quality, making it well-suited for urban commuting and longer journeys alike.
