Peugeot has revealed the new electric version of its Partner light van.
The unveiling of the e-Partner follows the announcement of electric versions of its platform-sharing cousins, the Citroen Berlingo and Vauxhall Combo, over the past two weeks.
Like those models, the e-Partner is powered by a 136hp electric motor, and comes with a 50kWh battery – good for a range of up to 171 miles from a single charge on the WLTP cycle.
Two types of onboard charger will be available – a 7.4kW single-phase charger as standard, and an 11kW three-phase charger as an option.
A full battery charge will be possible in five hours using an 11kW wall box, or alternatively an 80% charge will be achievable in 30 minutes with a 100kW DC rapid charger.
Drivers will have a choice of drive modes allowing them to turn the powertrain down to 60% or 80% power to optimise range, as well as a choice between two levels of regenerative braking.
The e-Partner has a maximum load capacity of up to 4.4m3, meaning no compromise compared with diesel Partners, along with a maximum payload of up to 800kg and towing capacity up to 750kg.
Two vehicle lengths will be available, measuring 4.4m and 4.75m.
Two trim levels will be on offer – Professional, available as either a panel van or crew van, and the panel van-only Asphalt.
The e-Partner will be available in the UK from November. Prices are yet to be announced.
