Why Lease A Peugeot e-Rifter?
How Does My Peugeot E-Rifter Lease Deal Work?Opting for leasing is an affordable way to drive off with a brand-new car. It’s essentially a rental, which means you choose the car you want and tailor your contract to suit you – including annual mileage.As you don’t own the car, you can spread the cost with fixed monthly payments, and enjoy a new car with all the latest tech. Plus, you don’t have to worry about any depreciation costs or paying a balloon payment. To find out more about how contract hire works, take a look at our easy-to-understand guide to car leasing.
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Peugeot E-Rifter’s main strength is its practicality, with up to 3,500 litres of space on offer with all the seats (including the front passenger item) folded. Access to the back row is easy, thanks to the sliding side doors. This means they’re easy to open in tight spaces and fitting child seats inside is a breeze. If you’re doing that, then there are three sets of Isofix child seat mounts across the back row.
As well as a 3,500-litre maximum, the e-Rifter offers 775 litres of space in 5-seat mode, which is about as much as you’ll be able to fit in a hatchback with all of the back seats folded. This means the e-Rifter is ideal for anybody that needs to carry passengers and luggage. One neat feature in GT cars is that the rear glass can be opened independently of the tailgate, which boosts access in tight spots.
The cabin storage is excellent. The glovebox on the passenger side is deep enough to fit a small laptop, there’s a shallow tray beneath it, and more storage under both front seats. There’s another tray under the main touchscreen, while the centre console between the seats features a big storage bin with a sliding cover. Cupholders feature at either end of the dashboard, plus there are big door bins. The front seat-backs have flip-up tray tables for rear occupants to use, as well as air vents and a USB charging socket.
Where the Peugeot e-Rifter comes into its own is for everyday running costs. There’s a range of up to 172 miles on offer – it will be cheaper to recharge the battery than it will be to fill a diesel model to cover the same distance.
The e-Rifter can be charged in 7.5 hours from a home wall box, while Peugeot offers faster charging that can reduce this time to five hours using a stronger home charger. Use a public DC rapid charger and it can take as little as half an hour to charge the battery from 0-80% capacity.

The Peugeot E-Rifter Vs Competitors
The electric drive system is used in a number of other Peugeot, Citroen, and Vauxhall models, and since it has fewer moving parts than an engine, it means less can go wrong. For peace of mind, Peugeot covers the main battery with a warranty of 8 years or 100,000 miles, in addition to the standard 3-year warranty.
The Peugeot E-Rifter has 775 litres of space in the 5-seat mode under the parcel shelf, or 3,000 litres in the 2-seat mode (to the roof). Fold the front passenger seat and that creates 3,500 litres of space.
There are just two trim levels on offer, Allure and GT. The latter features alloy wheels and more upmarket interior trim than Allure, including a dark-brown dashboard finish.
Rear parking sensors are standard across the range, while the GT adds a 180-degree rear-view camera, too.
Diesel versions of the Rifter were dropped at the start of 2022 because Peugeot needed to bring down the overall emissions of its entire range of new cars. Making the e-Rifter the only model, with no petrol or diesel alternatives, was deemed an easy way to do this.
