Earlier in January, Citroën launched the all electric e-Berlingo and off of that platform, the other companies in the PSA group have launched their own versions, first up is the e-Partner from Peugeot. The new van will go on sale later this year and joins the e-Berlingo and Combo-e. All three vans are essentially the same, sitting in the size below the larger vans each company makes with the e-Expert and e-Boxer.
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 onboard charger is 7.4kW as standard but can be upgraded to 11kW. Fast charging via a 100kW public charger can share up the e-Partner from 0-80% in 30 minutes.
As of writing the pricing is yet unknown, however we’ll be sure to find out soon as orders open soon, with deliveries taking place this October.
