Introduction

What Car? says...

If you want an electric vehicle – whether it's something small and sporty or vast and practical – you're spoilt for choice these days. Take one glance at the Citroën e-Spacetourer and it’s clear which of those size extremes we’re talking about here.

For a start, you can seat up to nine people inside, or you can remove all the seats (if you’ve got somewhere to store them) and turn the e-Spacetourer into a big, carpeted van. That shouldn’t come as a surprise because, behind the big windows and body-coloured bumpers, all Spacetourers are based on the Citroën Dispatch

While the closely-related Vauxhall Vivaro-e Life is available in two sizes (medium and large), the e-Spacetourer is available in only one length. You do get a choice of a couple of different trim levels, though, and you can also choose how many seats you want. Citroën also gives you a smattering of other options to choose from if you require a bit more luxury.

The e-Spacetourer's rivals include not only its Vauxhall-badged cousin but also the Mercedes EQV. Spend a bit more and you could have a Tesla Model X, although that futuristically-styled MPV can only seat a piffling seven people. 

For buyers looking for a traditional diesel engine, the Citroën Spacetourer offers even more space. If you can live with seven seats, similar van-based MPVs including the Citroën Berlingo or traditional MPVs such as the VW Touran should be on your shopping list too. Of course, you might also choose a seven-seat SUV instead – the What Car? Award-winning Peugeot 5008 for example.

Should the Citroën e-Spacetourer be on your shortlist, then? In this review, we’ll tell you what it’s like to drive and to live with, as well as which version we think you should choose.

Don’t forget, whatever make and model of car you go for, our free What Car? New Car Buying service is on hand to take all the effort out of the process while making sure you get a great saving on the price. You should find some excellent Citroën Spacetourer deals there.
