Peugeot bolsters electric van range with e-Partner

Peugeot has strengthened its electric van offering with the announcement of the e-Partner.

The Peugeot brand is now one of the first manufacturers to offer a full range of electric utility vehicles in Europe.

Complementing the new Peugeot e-Expert (International VAN of The Year 2021) and Peugeot e-Boxer, the new Peugeot e-Partner will go on sale in Ireland in the second half of 2021.

The French manufacturer says the e-Expert will have a range of up to 275km in the WLTP cycle.

The new Peugeot e-Partner is available in the same versions as the internal combustion engines in order to meet all requirements.

It has two lengths (Standard and Long), which are both available with a lithium-ion battery (18 modules) with a capacity of 50 kWh.

Two silhouettes are also set to be offered; vans (up to three seats) and deep cabins (up to five seats).

The new electric van’s towing capacity is up to 750 kg, while payload is up to 800 kg.

Peugeot says the e-Expert shares the same loading volume of its internal combustion version, which is up to 4.4m³.
