The all electric Peugeot e-Partner was announced earlier this year in February and it joins the Stellantis line up of all electric commercial vechincles, all the brands are sharing the same platforms, from Peugeot to Vauxhall. This means that like the small EV hatchbacks, such as the Corsa-e and e-208, the underpinnings and electiufcla components are identical.
The e-Partner is on sale now in the UK, with prices starting at £31,262 including the government’s plug in van grant. It must be said that Peugeot is not offering the all electric version in the base trim level, so the most premium models are only offered, with the Professional Premium and Asphalt Premium.
The Professional Premium comes standard with air-conditioning, heads up display, electric windows and an 8-inch infotainment screen with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Bumping up to the Asphalt Premium brings the price to £33,200 and adds a 10-inch digital instrument screen, body-coloured bumpers and front and rear parking sensors.
The vans all sit on the same platform as the new Corsa-e, e-208 and e-C4 from all three companies, the e-CMP platform. The e-Partner has a range of 170 miles with a 134bhp electric motor. 0-60mph is handled in 11.2 seconds and a top speed of 80mph, which for a van is more than enough. The e-Partner also has different driving modes to help save energy, with Normal and Eco, the latter restricts power output back to 80bhp.
The e-Partner can also be specced in a crew van body style, but only in the longer wheel base model.
