Peugeot e-Expert Named International Van Of The Year

The e-Expert was named International Van of the Year by judges from 25 countries and is the first time a fully electric van has won the title. The International Van of the Year award is one of the most sought-after awards in the LCV sector. Judges praised the e-Expert for its excellent zero emissions range, load capacity and high levels of technology on board. This is the sixth time that Peugeot has won the International Van of the Year prize, with past models including the Peugeot Boxer in 1994, Peugeot Expert in 2008 and Peugeot Partner in 2019.

The new 100% electric Peugeot e-Expert is available in the same lengths as the internal combustion engine versions in order to meet all uses: Compact 4.6m, Standard 4.95m and Long 5.30m. The range is available with either 50kWh or 75kWh batteries providing a range of up to 205 miles under WLTP tests.

With a maximum towing capacity of 1,000kg, and with a payload of up to 1,226kg and 6.6 m3 load capacity, the new model suits a variety of business and private user needs. Based on the EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform) multi-energy modular platform, it offers a maximum power of 100 KW and a maximum torque of 260 Nm.

The exterior is adorned by eye-catching features such as Dichroic Lions at the front and rear which change colour depending on angle of view, a load hatch on the left front wing, recognisable front grille, and "e-Expert" monogram signature on the rear.

Inside, features include an analogue handset with a colour matrix adapted to the electrical system, a new “e-Toggle” automatic gearbox control, electric parking brake, and new Peugeot e-Expert-specific graphics for the central touch screen. The new internal system also comes with TomTom Traffic 3D Connected Navigation, which now includes the available charging points and the range according to the remaining autonomy.

The Peugeot e-Expert’s driving mode selector switch allows drivers to navigate between three modes:

  • Eco (60 kW, 190 Nm): promotes autonomy,
  • Normal (80 kW, 210 Nm): optimal for everyday use,
  • Power (100 kW, 260 Nm): optimises performance when transporting heavy loads

To maximise internal space, the batteries are located under the floor, allowing for heightened rigidity, ensuring driving pleasure and enjoyment just like with the internal combustion versions thanks to optimal weight distribution. Modularity continues to set the standard in the segment with the Moduwork 3-seater bench, thanks to the hatch in the partition and the base of the side seat that folds up.

It also comes with a specially adapted power steering system that makes driving easier, a turning circle diameter of 11.3m (Compact version between kerbs) and a height limited to 1.90m (depending on version) that guarantees access to most car parks.

Two types of on-board chargers are available to meet all customer needs and charging solutions, with a 7.4 kW single-phase charger as standard and an 11 kW three-phase charger as an option.

  • 7.4 kW Wall Box: full charge in 7h30 (50kWh battery) or 11h20 (75kWh battery) with the single-phase on-board charger (7.4 kW),
  • 11 kW Wall Box: full charge in 5h (50kWh battery) or 7h30 (75kWh battery) with the on-board three-phase charger (11 kW),
  • Public charging station: the thermal regulation of the battery makes it possible to use 100 kW chargers and reach 80% of the charge in 30 minutes (50 kWh battery) or 45 minutes (75 kWh battery).

The new Peugeot e-Expert offers a tailor-made response to satisfy ever more needs and is available in three trim levels: S, Professional and Asphalt.
