Peugeot is expanding its electric vehicle range with the new Peugeot e-Partner, the latest light commercial vehicle (LCV) in the brand’s line-up to be offered as a full electric vehicle. The new e-Partner joins the existing zero emissions Peugeot e-Expert van.
With a 100% electric range of up to 171 miles / 275km (WLTP), the Peugeot e-Partner continues Peugeot’s commitment to provide a fully electrified range by 2023, and completes its aim of offering a full range of electric vans by the end of this year.
Based on the EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform) multi-energy modular platform, the Peugeot e-Partner features a 50kWh lithium-ion battery connected to a 100kW (136hp) electric motor. The new Peugeot e-Partner is capable of maximum speeds of up to 80 mph / 129km/h and achieves 0-60 mph in 11.2s with a maximum torque of 260 Nm. It can also reach up to 171 miles / 275km from a single charge under WLTP testing. To maximise battery renewal, drivers have two options for braking modes- Moderate and Augmented.
Drivers can access three modes in the new, full electric Peugeot e-Partner:
Inside, the new Peugeot e-Partner has a maximum load capacity of up to 4.4m3, resulting in no compromise over diesel variants thanks to a clever design that sees the 50kWh battery located underneath the floor. It also features a maximum payload of up to 800kg, and towing capacity up to 750kg. Two wheelbase versions are available, with a ‘Standard’ variant at 4.40m and ‘Long’ with 4.75m.
Drivers can access key vehicle information on the instrument display via the steering wheel controls, including navigation, power management and the option to switch between different driving aids.
The touch screen gives access to a bespoke ‘Electric’ menu which shows key vehicle information, including:
Drivers can also receive the latest real time traffic alerts via TomTom’s LIVE services, as well as the location and availability of public charging points.Thermal pre-conditioning can be set from the touch screen or remotely via the MyPEUGEOT® smartphone application. Thermal preconditioning not only boosts in-car comfort but also helps the battery reach optimal operating temperature more quickly, thus improving vehicle performance.
The eco-system by Peugeot:
To assist its customers in the energy transition, the Peugeot offers a range of services based on three pillars:
The new Peugeot e-Partner is ideal for urban and city driving, thanks to the compact steering wheel that forms part of the Peugeot i-Cockpit® system, an agile turning circle of 10.8m for Standard variants and a height of less than 1.90m.
For enhanced pedestrian safety, when travelling at speeds of up to 18mph, an audible signal can be heard to indicate the presence of the vehicle in forward and reverse gear. All versions of the new Peugeot e-Partner are equipped with an electric parking brake.
