"The components have been ingeniously integrated so that their size does not affect the load capacity, an essential factor for professionals in this segment. As a result, Citroen e-Jumpy Hydrogen responds to the different needs and activities of professionals, with a range of over 400 km, a low impact of the outside temperature on the range, a charging time of only 3 minutes, and the ability to recover more energy during deceleration." - Laurence Hansen - Citroen Product and Strategy Manager.
The Citroen brand has constantly been innovating since 1928 to adapt to society's evolution and offer professionals more relaxation and a simplified use in their daily activities. Citroen will bring new energy sources in 2021 with e-Jumpy Hydrogen in response to contemporary social and environmental challenges.
The Citroen brand offers the most complex range of electric vehicles on the market. The Citroen brand supplements its range of electric LCVs to meet the needs of 8% of companies that have to travel more than 300 km or do not have time to recharge their vehicles during the day. The Citroen range of vehicles will thus meet all the needs of the segment.
The new Citroen e-Jumpy Hydrogen, an electric van with a fuel cell and rechargeable batteries, is the first Citroen vehicle to produce hydrogen-based energy. The new technology is seamlessly integrated without compromising payload and load capacity. Extremely practical, the new model offers a range of over 400 km and needs only 3 minutes to refuel with hydrogen. The three carbon-fiber tanks store hydrogen at a pressure of 700 bar. With zero CO 2 emissions, freelancers and traders can continue to use roads in urban areas subject to environmental restrictions in full freedom.
The 100% electric vehicle, Citroen e-Jumpy Hydrogen, benefits from two energy sources: a 45 kW fuel cell, which produces electricity by consuming the hydrogen stored in the three tanks (700 bar), and a 10.5 kWh battery, which provides a reserve of 50 km when the hydrogen tank is emptied. The hydrogen fuel cell ensures the vehicle's autonomy, while the battery provides extra power when needed. The two power sources combine to control the engine and drive the propulsion system. The battery recovers energy during the deceleration phases and is automatically charged using the electricity generated by the hydrogen fuel cell to ensure sufficient autonomy. It can also be recharged at charging stations for electric vehicles using a cable.
Citroen e-Jumpy is produced at the SevelNord plant and will then be transformed into Russelsheim-Germany, the global center of expertise in FCEV technology of the Stellantis Group. The new Citroen e-Jumpy Hydrogen is available in 2 length versions, M (4.95 m) and XL (5.30 m).
"Mark Citro e n has launched a wide offensive in light commercial vehicles and offers since 2021 a complete range electrified the European market up 26% in 2020. Citroen does not stop here. True to the desire to be inspired by professionals and their needs, the Citroen e-Jumpy Hydrogen version now completes the range of battery-powered electric vans. The new technology will meet the requirements of customers who regularly travel long distances or need fast refueling. The Citroen brand offers professionals a wide range of electrified LCVs, which allows them to operate in a sustainable way, depending on their needs, and protect the environment. » Anne-Lise Richard, Business Manager for Electrified Vehicles, Stellantis
The electric vehicle market proliferated in Europe by 132% in 2020 compared to 2019. As a result, about one in ten vehicles sold in 2020 is electric. The market is expected to grow by 53% in 2021, with more than 2 million registrations and a substantial boom in the electric LCV market (+ 127%), where Citroen intends to be a significant player. By 2025, Citroen's goal is to reach over 25% of the electric vehicle market.
Electric utility cars are essential for professionals working in environmentally restricted urban centers beyond the commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of the Citroen range of vehicles. In addition, electrification allows contractors to modify their vehicle fleet, with significant environmental and economic benefits. An example of this is the Citroen e-Berlingo Van, which consumes an average of 18 kWh of electricity per 100 km, the equivalent of € 3, with maintenance costs on average 30% lower than heat engine versions. Electrification offers employees extra comfort, with a smooth and quiet running that ensures well-being at work, with performances identical to those offered by the thermal versions.
Citroen announced in 2019 the electrification of the entire range of compact vans, starting in 2021. The brand has comprehensively fulfilled its promise, e-Jumpy being available for order in France since September 2020. The range will be expanded in the second half of 2021 when the first Citroen e-Berlingo Van, Citroen e-Jumper, and Citroen e-Jumpy Hydrogen models will be delivered. The Citroen brand offers a complete range of vehicles to offer customized solutions to professionals.
The new Citroen e-Jumpy is the most versatile model, which adapts to all types of use. The electric utility vehicle is suitable for medium-distance travel (on average, three journeys, with a stop time of 2 hours, over 50 km to 100 km, rarely more than 200 km). Citroen e-Jumpy offers all the advantages of the thermal version in terms of design, size, load volume, and payload, plus the comfort of an electric car.
Voted "International Van of the Year 2021", the Citroen e-Jumpy offers a modern design, comfort on board, a payload of up to 6.6 m 3 and a payload of up to 1,275 kg, as well as top modularity (thanks to the Moduwork system which offers a useful length of 4 m). Professionals can choose the autonomy that best meets their needs and budget. They can opt for a range of 230 km with a 50 kWh battery or a range of 330 km with a 75 kWh battery. With this dual offer, e-Jumpy covers over 91% of the segment's needs. The WLTP - Autonomy cycle can vary depending on a number of factors, such as driving style, weather conditions, terrain type, and heating usage.
