This review of the Citroën ë-Dispatch Electric explains why this spacious cargo carrier could be an ideal workhorse with some eco-friendly benefits to boot.

Simple and Practical Charging Choices

The retailers of Citroën 4x4 cars in the United Kingdom will be able to introduce their customers to the charging partner, called Pod Point.

The main role of Pod Point is to supply and install accelerated wall boxes (i.e. charging points). They already have approval for the UK Government workplace charging grant.

Using the Load Hatch

Drivers will find the charging hatch located on the left front fender of Citroën ë-Dispatch Electric van. A coloured light diode helps you follow the simple charging process:

  1. White for home mode.
  2. Flashing green led for charging in progress.
  3. Green led when charging is complete.
  4. Blue led for delayed charging.

You can choose to schedule a charge or you can defer it (e.g. if you qualify for off-peak hours tariffs). Access to the programming is available on the My Citroën app as well as the touchscreen tablet located in the passenger compartment.
