Citroen Dispatch buying guide

What engines are in a Citroen Dispatch?

If you choose a fuel-powered Dispatch, it’ll use either a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel with 100hp, or a larger 2.0-litre engine in a range of outputs between 120 and 180hp. On the more powerful 2.0-litre options you’ll find the option of an EAT8 eight-speed automatic gearbox, although most Dispatch vans come with a six-speed manual.

Is the Citroen Dispatch available as an electric van?

Yes, you can get a totally battery-powered version called the e-Dispatch, borrowing the same electric motor and battery setup found in the Peugeot e-Expert. That means it uses a 100kW (134hp) electric motor powering the front wheels, connected to either a 50 or long-range 75kWh battery pack. The 50kWh pack will cover around 137 miles on a full charge, which it can recover from a 7kW charging point in 7.5 hrs. The 75kWh pack will go 196 miles, taking 11.3 hours to recharge from a 7kWh point. Both versions can accept DC fast charging at up to 100kW, recovering an 80% charge in 30 minutes for 50kWh models or 45 minutes for 75kWh versions.

Can I get finance on a used Citroen Dispatch with Motorpoint?

Yes, you can! Hire Purchase (HP) finance options are available across all Motorpoint vans, allowing you to spread the cost of your nearly new van for up to five years. Get a personalised quote from our team by giving them a call or visiting us in-store.

Citroen Dispatch FAQs

All versions of the Dispatch are impressively economical for a practical van. The most efficient 1.5-litre engine can average more than 45mpg if you drive gently but all versions should be capable of around 40mpg in day-to-day use.

The Dispatch should prove safe in a crash thanks to modern materials and building techniques, plus it’s based on the EMP2 platform used across several Citroen car models that have strong safety records. However, Euro NCAP only awarded it a bronze in its commercial vehicle safety ratings due to shortcomings in its automated safety systems, most of which are optional.

Nearly new and brand new Dispatch buyers will find two main versions available – the mid-length M version and the stretched XL version, with the latter having more cargo room. The two lengths are available as either a panel van or a crew van with a second row of three seats.

There’s also a passenger version of the Dispatch called the SpaceTourer. This features three whole rows of seats with the ability to carry up to nine passengers.

Citroen previously offered an extra-short version of the Dispatch that measured in at less than 4.7 metres long, but the overwhelming majority are sold as either mid-length 5.0-metre long vans, or extra-long 5.3-metre long models. All versions are 1.9 metres tall and 2.2 metres wide including the mirrors.

The cargo area inside Dispatch panel vans are either 2,512mm or 2,862mm long depending on the van length chosen. All models are 1,628mm wide and 1,397mm tall on the inside.

Most of the parts that make up the Dispatch are widely used across other models and should prove to be tough enough for daily duty. Diesel Dispatch vans have two-year service intervals – twice as long as most passenger cars.

Technically no, the Dispatch is designed to compete against other mid-sized van options, so its direct Ford rival would be the Transit Custom. The full-size Transit is a competitor for the Citroen Relay.

Many vans share parts and engines to save production costs. For the Citroen Dispatch, its siblings are the Peugeot Expert, Toyota Proace, Vauxhall Vivaro and Fiat Scudo.
