Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The Citroën e-Spacetourer is priced lower than the rival Vauxhall Vivaro-e Life, but it’s worth noting that the latter is available in a bigger size and with more equipment. Plus, next to the more luxurious but hugely expensive Mercedes EQV, the e-Spacetourer looks like an absolute bargain. If you can do without electric power, there are far cheaper options out there, including diesel-powered versions of the Spacetourer.
You can recharge the e-Spacetourer’s batteries pretty quickly; an 0-80% top-up takes as little as 30 minutes if you use the kind of 100kW charging stations that are slowly becoming more common at UK motorway services. A domestic 7kW wallbox charger will complete a full charge from empty in 7.5 hours.
