Peugeot is expanding its electric vehicle range with the new 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, the Peugeot e-Partner continues the brand’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.
The Peugeot Partner range has been hugely successful since its launch in 1996, with more than 2,000,000 units sold across 100 countries. In 2019, the Peugeot Partner was named ‘International Van of the Year’ showcasing its high reputation among industry experts.
The new Peugeot e-Partner, adorned with a distinctive “e-Partner” monogram at the rear, marks an exciting evolution for the successful model. 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 electric motor.
The e-Partner is capable of maximum speeds of up to 80 mph and achieves 0-60 mph in 11.2s with a maximum torque of 260 Nm. It can also reach up to 171 miles from a single charge under WLTP testing.
The e-Partner is available with two types of on-board chargers, a 7.4 kW single-phase charger as standard and an optional 11 kW three-phase charger. The e-Partner can achieve full power in as little as five hours through an 11 kW Wall Box, or an 80% charge in just 30 minutes via a 100kW DC rapid charger.
