Peugeot, Vauxhall and Citroen extends roadside assistance plan for electric and hybrid models

Published 26 May 2020

Groupe PSA - which owns Peugeot, Citroen and Vauxhall - has extended its roadside assistance plan on new electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles to eight years or 100,000 miles, in line with the vehicle battery warranty.

The cover is available on the new Peugeot e-208 and 3008, new Vauxhall Corsa-e, Grandland X Hybrid and Hybrid4, new DS3 Crossback E-Tense and the new Citroën C5 Aircross Hybrid. 

Groupe PSA roadside assistance covers home and roadside repairs, as well as roadside recovery. If vehicles cannot be repaired on the road or at home, it will be transported the nearest authorised repairer, while onward travel (for up to seven passengers) to their final destination in the UK will be provided under the plan.

It also covers running out of fuel or charge, where electric vehicle owners will either be given a short charge at the roadside, or will be recovered to the nearest suitable chargepoint. For vehicles sold within the cover period, subsequent owners will be able to take advantage of the roadside assistance cover.

Richard Dyson, Groupe PSA Parts & Service Director UK, said: "Electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles represent the fastest growing vehicle segment in the UK. With more buyers looking to make the switch, we hope this initiative will give first-time electric car buyers the peace of mind they’re looking for."

Most people buy petrol and diesel cars as they represent the best value for money.
