Tough competition in the 2023 van market makes for a real selection dilemma if you’re acquiring a brand new model.

Weighing up pros and cons, this particular option is perfect for use in light construction, possessing best-in-class loading width for an electric variant.

If you’ve driven a Citroen electric vehicle before, you will likely be aware of what to expect, including a huge selection of accessories, and variants that cater to the specifics of different trades. Generally, drawbacks stem from the conversion, and the existing reasonable payload capacity could be great, though unfortunately remains impacted by an intricate battery conversion. Read on to find out more, including insight into the longer and roomier rear load space, range specifics, fast charge capabilities and observations on presentation and configurations. With so much to cover within the review of this feature-heavy and environmentally friendly van option, explore variants, conversions and much more.

Within our original review of the Citroen Relay Tipper, we praised the van’s sturdy build quality, which is no less evident here. The electric Relay Tipper is still equipped with a steel bulkhead and gantry, as well as heavy-duty zinc-plated corner pillars and a hardwearing ladder rack. These additions provide fantastic protection from weather conditions and otherwise unsafe roads.


Interior options remain flexible, and can always be acquired and fitted following acquisition of your van. 11 driving assistance systems can come pre-installed for enhanced safety on the roads, with thorough soundproofing and attention to detail for a relaxing drive. Variants catering to the specifics of different trades can be acquired with different features, from reversing cameras, automatic windscreen wipers and reinforced suspension. A payload of up to 1150kg is certainly competitive, while loading is easier thanks to two hinged rear doors.

Tipper capabilities are controlled conveniently from the cab, and with a clear view of the mechanism, driver and passenger alike can easily monitor the secondary function of this versatile electric van. Seamlessly manoeuvre large loads from A to B, with plenty of horsepower to drive you forward despite the arguably limited specs compared with diesel rivals.
