The Peugeot Partner, restyled in spring 2012, has extended it’s range to include a 100% Electric version.
Presented for the first time at the Hanover Motor Show this month, the launch of the new Partner Electric is expected during the 2nd quarter of 2013
Based on the normal Partner, the new Partner Electric brings together the latest technological innovations related to this energy source.
Equipped with an electric drive train fitted under the bonnet, the Partner Electric operates on two high-energy lithium-ion battery packs with a capacity of 22.5kW/h and offers performance of the first order with a power of 49kW (67bhp) and torque of 200Nm.
Partner Electric benefits from two charging modes for its battery: a normal charge (up to 16A) in 6 to 9 hours and a fast charge (up to 125A) allowing recovery of 80% of the capacity of the batteries in 30 minutes.
The range of 170km / 105 miles on the European cycle (NEDC) places Partner Electric as the new benchmark in the electric small van segment.
Partner Electric recovers energy during deceleration but also during active braking, converting kinetic energy into electrical energy. In this way the driving range is better preserved.
All of the benefits of modularity and of load capacity that have made the Partner a success are also present in the new Partner Electric.
Available in two lengths (L1: 4.38m and L2: 4.63m), the Partner Electric offers the largest load volumes in the small van segment. The load volume of up to 3.3m3 for L1 with a load length of 1.80m and 3,7m3 for L2 with a load length of 2.05m, for a payload of up to 685kg.
With its Multi-flex bench seat that can accommodate three people at the front, Partner Electric conserves the exclusive facility for modularity that has characterised Partner since its launch. The Multi-flex seat also allows the load volume to be increased to 400 litres. The load capacity is then lifted to 3.7m3 for L1 with a load length of 3m and to 4.1m3 for L2 with a load length of 3.25m.
