Mpg stands for miles per gallon, and is used to show how far your car is able to travel for every gallon (or 4.55 litres) of fuel it uses. The combined WLTP fuel economy figure provides a general overview of a car's fuel consumption over a variety of speeds and road types.
Insurance groups range from 1 to 50 and dictates the cost of the vehicles insurance. The higher the group, the higher the insurance will be for the vehicle.
BHP rates the engine performance of vehicles and stands for the brake horsepower.
CO2 is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the vehicle in grams per kilometre travelled, the lower the CO2 emissions the cleaner the vehicle is for the environment.
Number Of Seats
The total number of seats in the vehicle.
Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £320 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.
The options for full-electric power are growing in the sector for really large MPVs. Here's Citroen's take on this concept, the e-SpaceTourer. In 50kWh form, it won't go particularly far on a single charge, but it'll seat up to nine, help you move house or function as an executive minibus. All without using a drop of fuel.
Very soon, no segment of the automotive market will lack full-EV model options. One of these sectors lately gaining BEV models has been that for large People Carriers. This isn't really because manufacturers think this to be much of a potential growth area. It's more because really big MPVs are always based on the kind of mid-sized vans that car makers, pressurised by governments, are starting to offer in full-electric form these days. The Mercedes Vito, Peugeot Expert, Vauxhall Vivaro and Citroen Dispatch LCVs can all now be had in full-EV form. So their MPV counterparts (the Mercedes V-Class, the Peugeot Traveller, the Vauxhall Vivaro Life and the Citroen Space Tourer) also get the BEV treatment. The Peugeot, the Vauxhall and the Citroen are essentially the same underneath, sharing the same PSA Group powertrain; it's the Citroen model, badged the 'e-SpaceTourer' that we look at here.
Big People Carriers are largely used for suburban duties, which is just as well because this car's not much good for anything else. A huge heavy People Carrier relying on a battery designed to sustain an electric supermini was never going to travel very far between charges and, sure enough, this e-Space Tourer's 50kWh battery pack takes this Citroen only 143 miles between charges. So you're going to need to think hard if you're going anywhere more than 60 miles or so away, unless you've the time for a potentially lengthy recharging stop before your return journey. This is annoying because this car's LCV counterpart, the Dispatch van, has the option of a larger 75kWh battery that would add around 60 miles of additional range. At the time of this test in Spring 2021, that wasn't being offered on the e-Space Tourer. Using this MPV is straightforward. You turn the key in the ignition, wait for the starting beep, then flick the gear toggle into Drive. There's a drive-mode selector that allows drivers to switch between ECO, NORMAL and POWER modes. There's 136hp on tap and there's also a 'B' option that ploughs extra energy back into the battery, offering more resistance while you're slowing down. Top speed is just 84mph.
Apart from the badge work and the charging flap, it'll be difficult for your neighbours to spot that you've switched your big MPV to full-electric power. This big Citroen is clearly van-derived, but the looks are modern and not too LCV-like. Normally, this MPV comes with medium-length 'M' and long 'XL' body lengths, but with the e-Space Tourer, only the shorter 4.95-metre 'M' version is being offered. This means that for family and minibus-orientated 'Business Edition'-spec model, you get an nine-seater 3-3-3 layout (with a 3-person bernch seat at the front) and you're going to need to slide the rear two rows about to facilitate legroom if a full complement of adults are aboard. The alternative 'Flair'-spec model is an 8-seater with two available seats at the front and three in each of the rows behind. The battery installation hasn't compromised passenger or cargo space in any way. All the rear seats can be removed to reveal a van-like cargo area, but they've heavy and awkward to lift and you'd need a big garage to store them in.at the wheel, there's a driver selector toggle where the gear lever would normally be and you get a power flow gauge instead of a rev counter in the instrument binnacle.
There's a choice of two trim levels for this 50kWh e-Space Tourer model, base 'Business Edition' and plusher 'Flair', both offered with a choice of either the mid-sized 'Medium' body shape or the largest 'XL' version. You'll probably want the 'Business Edition' model because it alone costs under £35,000 (in both 'M' and 'XL' forms), so therefore qualifies for the government's Plug-in Car Grant - and therefore can be yours for around £32,000 for the 'M' version (it's £500 more for the 'XL' variant). Because with the plusher 'Flair' model, you're on your own in terms of the asking price, there's quite a price jump if you want that - think around £47,500 for the 'M' and just under £48,500 for the 'XL'. Citroen still isn't offering the option of its larger 75kWh battery pack that you can get (and which gives you much greater range) in the brand's merchanically-identical Dispatch van. We'd like to see that change if this option can be introduced affordably. We mentioned two spec levels; the 9-seat 'Business Edition' version comes as standard with air conditioning, cruise control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 7-inch touchscreen and a driver attention alert system. The top 'Flair' trim is aimed at professional users and features plusher seating for up to eight people, the chairs upholstered in Claudia Mistral leather, with driver and front passenger seats featuring heating and massage functions. All e-SpaceTourer models feature Citroen Connect Nav with real time traffic alerts, as well as a Citroen Connect Box that alerts assistance or emergency services in the event of an incident or accident. Plus all Citroen e-SpaceTourer models feature Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Screen for smartphone compatibility. Users also have access to DAB radio with Bluetooth and an easy to read seven-inch capacitive touchscreen. There's also a colour instrument display, climate control and the usual executive niceties.
Because the e-Space Tourer supports up to 100kW rapid charging technology, an 80 per cent charge will take just 30 minutes. This EV People Carrier also features a 7kW on-board charger as standard. A full charge from a 7.4kW domestic Wallbox takes 7 hours 30 minutes. With the alternative 11kW wallbox, you can reduce that to four and three-quarter hours. For peace of mind, the lithium-ion battery pack in this model comes with an eight year/100,000 mile warranty, for up to 70% of the initial battery capacity. To get close to the quoted 143 mile range figure, you'll need to engage 'Eco' mode frequently - which reduces power output to 80hp. The included 'Citroen Connect Box' package allows the driver to set up deferred charging or to pre-condition the vehicle via the MyCitroen mobile app on their smartphone. To enhance the ownership experience of this Citroen, the brand has partnered with POLAR, the UK's largest public charging station provider, to give customers a free six-month subscription to POLAR Plus. This brings with it the convenience of having access to more than 5,000 public charging stations across the UK.
