With a loading volume from 4.6 cubic meters (XS) to 6.6 cubic meters (XL), the ë-Jumpy is one of the most spacious vehicles in the segment. Thanks to a loading width of 1.25 meters, Euro pallets can also be stowed effortlessly and at the same time, the electric transporter with a height of only 1.90 meters can also move in underground garages.

Customers can choose between two different lithium-ion batteries for the Citroën ë-Jumpy: a 50 kWh for a range of up to 230 kilometres and a 75 kWh for a range of up to 330 kilometres according to WLTP. The batteries consist of 18 or 27 modules. The Citroën ë-Jumpy is based on the EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform) multi-energy platform from Groupe PSA, which enables the battery to be installed in the chassis, which means that the loading volume is retained. The warranty of the electric drive unit and the battery is 8 years or 160,000 kilometres.

With an output of 100 kW (136 Hp) and a maximum torque of 260 Nm, the electric van is an ideal companion for trade and craft. In all three driving modes (Eco, Normal, Power) the maximum speed is 130 km / h. The normal mode optimizes range and performance, Eco optimizes energy consumption, and the power mode gives the e-Transporter performance and dynamics even with maximum payload.

There are various options for charging the battery of the Citroen e-Jumpy: It can be charged with up to 100 KW at a public quick charging station, the 50 kWh battery can be charged to 80 per cent in just 30 minutes. The empty battery can be fully recharged in less than 8 hours at a 7.4 kW charging connection, so the electric van is fully operational again overnight. The e-van can also be charged at any conventional household socket.
