PEUGEOT has opened orders for the new e-Partner, the 100% electric variant of the award-winning Partner van. With orders now open for the e-Partner, PEUGEOT customers can choose a fully electric van across its entire Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) range, giving businesses and fleets the opportunity to choose the powertrain that best meets their needs.
Based on the award-winning PEUGEOT Partner, the all-electric e-Partner is available in Panel Van and Crew Van configurations and in Standard and Long body lengths to suit a variety of needs.
The Standard-length measures 4.4m long, while Long variants extend the e-Partnerâ€™s length to 4.8m â€“ improving load capacity. The e-Partner comes with an identical load volume to the Partner van thanks to clever engineering of the battery underneath the floor. Standard Panel Van variants feature up to 3.9m3Â of load space with PEUGEOTâ€™s Multi-Flex folding seats, while Long Panel Van variants increase the maximum load volume to 4.4m3.
With a maximum payload of up to 803kg on Panel Van Standard length variants and 751kg on Long variants, the e-Partner is ideal for small and large fleets alike. Crew Van models of the e-Partner come with a second seating row, increasing the maximum number of passengers to five.
The new e-Partner features a 50kwh battery connected to a 100kw (136hp) electric motor and achieves a range of up to 171 miles under WLTP testing. Drivers have a choice of three driving modes, Eco (60kw), which optimises vehicle range, Normal (80kw), which suits everyday driving conditions, and Power (100kw), which maximises performance when transporting heavy loads.
All e-Partner models come standard with a Mode 3 Type 2 Charging Cable (7.4kw), with a full 0-100% charge taking seven hours and 30 minutes using a 7.4kw charger. An 11kw three-phase charger is also available, with a full charge taking five hours.
Julie David, Managing Director, PEUGEOT, UK, said: â€œWith order books now open for the new e-Partner, PEUGEOT customers can choose a fully electric van across our entire LCV range. This is a huge achievement for us as a brand, moving us one step closer to our target of offering an electrified variant across our entire passenger car and LCV range by 2025.â€
The new e-Partner is available in Professional Premium and Asphalt Premium trim from launch. Panel Van configurations are available with both trims, while Crew Van variants are sold exclusively in Professional Premium trim.
Professional Premium models feature PEUGEOTâ€™s Multi-Flex modular folding passenger bench seat, which helps improve load capacity, and features a pivoting writing table and a load-through bulkhead. Drivers also get an alarm, air conditioning, cruise control with a variable speed limiter, as well as an eight-inch capacitive touchscreen with Apple carplay™ and Android Auto™ as standard.
Asphalt Premium models come with 16-inch â€˜Taranakiâ€™ alloy wheels, body coloured rear bumper and side rubbing strips, as well as automatic windscreen wipers. Inside, the cabin features additional acoustic insulation for improved refinement, while all Asphalt Premium models also come with PEUGEOTâ€™s Connected 3D Navigation, with a three-year subscription to live traffic alerts and a 10-inch Digital Driverâ€™s Instrument Display. Front and rear parking sensors plus side and rear cameras are also included to help when reversing.
