Summary


The Peugeot e-Rifter is an electric people carrier available in five- or seven-seat configurations, and currently the only compact Peugeot people carrier available in the UK after the petrol-powered Rifter was discontinued in 2022.

The e-Rifter is based on the Peugeot e-Partner compact electric van, which is based on the petrol/diesel Peugeot Partner van.

It has received a mixed bag of review scores from the British media, with battery range being the key criticism levelled against the electric family car. “It’s great for both large families and businesses”, says Discover EV, “just plan in advance if you want to go anywhere over 150 miles!”

Reviewers frequently comment that the e-Rifter carries forward the positive traits of the discontinued Rifter – a practical interior with plenty of space, agile handling and a comfortable ride, and adds the low emissions and economy boost an electric car provides.

Its Stellantis stablemates, the Citroën ë-Berlingo and Vauxhall Combo Life Electric, offer similar amounts of space and performance, but the e-Rifter currently comes with more equipment as standard than the ë-Berlingo, and the entry-level e-Rifter model is cheaper than its Combo Electric Life equivalent.

As of January 2024, the Peugeot e-Rifter holds a New Car Expert Rating of B, with a score of 64%. It doesn’t score well in media reviews, but in ownership terms the e-Rifter rates highly. That said, we don’t have reliability data yet, so check back again soon.

e-Rifter highlights

  • Very spacious, practical cabin
  • Comfortable on the road
  • Agile handling for a car of this size
  • Just as powerful as combustion-powered Rifter

e-Rifter lowlights

  • Comparatively small battery range
  • Fiddly infotainment controls
  • Van-like shape won’t be for everyone
  • Its Citroën and Vauxhall stablemates just as capable

Safety rating


Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

Overall score: 4 stars
Date tested: October 2018
Read the full Euro NCAP review

Adult protection: 91%
Child protection: 81%
Vulnerable road users: 58%
Safety assist: 68%

The Peugeot e-Rifter people carrier shares its four-star safety rating with the combustion-powered Rifter range that was discontinued in 2022.

Eco rating


Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

As of January 2024, the Peugeot e-Rifter has not been lab tested by Green NCAP.

The Green NCAP programme measures exhaust pollution (which is zero for an electric car) and energy efficiency. Electric cars are much more energy-efficient than combustion cars, so the e-Rifter is likely to score very highly in Green NCAP testing whenever it ever takes place. Check back again soon.
