Peugeot will add a second electric van to its model range before the end of the year with the introduction of the new e-Partner.
Set to arrive in the UK in November, the newcomer will offer a 171-mile range from its 50kWh battery pack.
The e-Partner will be available with two types of on-board chargers, a 7.4kW single-phase charger as standard and an optional 11kW three-phase charger. It can achieve full power in as little as five hours through an 11kW Wall Box, or an 80% charge in just 30 minutes via a 100kW DC rapid charger.
Three driving modes alter the maximum power output of the motor. Eco delivers 190Nm and is designed to maximise range. Normal provides 210Nm and there’s a Power mode which delivers 260Nm for when the van is heavily loaded.
Two trim levels are offered: Professional and Asphalt. A Crew Van version will also be available in the Professional trim level allowing for transportation of up to five occupants.
The e-Partner has a maximum load capacity of up to 4.4 cubic metres, which is the same as diesel variants. It also features a maximum payload of up to 800Kg, and towing capacity up to 750kg.
Two wheelbase versions are available, with a ‘Standard’ variant at 4.4m and ‘Long’ with 4.75m.
The Multi-flex modular folding three-seater bench allows drivers to increase storage capacity, with load space increasing up to 500 litres inside the cabin, via storage space under the centre seat cushion and a load through bulkhead.
