Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

You have to look very closely to spot the differences between the Citroen e-Dispatch interior and the one in the regular model. Indeed, the biggest difference between the two is the instrument cluster. Instead of a rev counter, there's a power meter to tell you how much energy you are using, and the fuel gauge has been replaced by a battery charge level indicator. Oh, and the trip computer has been modified to provide you with a predicted electric range. 

The rest of the interior is as you’ll find in the regular Dispatch. That means it’s comfortable and well screwed together but a little on the small side – a problem it shares with the virtually identical Peugeot e-Expert, Toyota Proace Electric and Vauxhall Vivaro-e. The seating position, for example, is quite low, while taller drivers will struggle with leg room. It doesn’t have as many storage compartments as you’ll find in a Ford Transit Custom or VW Transporter, either.

Driver trim also gets automatic headlights and automatic windscreen wipers, which should help increase visibility in poor conditions, while Asphalt gets a wide range of safety features. 

Entry-level X trim models get DAB radio and Bluetooth, but that’s your lot for infotainment. Stepping up to Enterprise adds a 7.0in colour touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, while Driver models add built-in sat-nav. The system is a little laggy at times, but there are shortcut buttons for most functions on either side of the screen and you can control some of them using buttons and dials on the steering wheel.
