Peugeot e-Partner debuts as a small cargo e-van


Peugeot has revealed the e-Partner electric cargo van, scheduled to go on sale in the second half of this year in Europe. The e-Partner is essentially a cargo version of the Citroën Berlingo and Toyota ProAce vans. The name ‘e-Partner’ sounds like a startup that facilitates a long-distance online relationship.

Anyway, the e-Partner is available in two lengths: Standard (4.40 m) and Long (4.75 m), with a payload capacity of up to 800 kg (1,764 lbs) and a towing capacity of up to 750 kg (1,653 lbs). Strangely, the 800 kg payload is for the Standard variant while the Long variant’s payload rating is 750 kg; probably something to do with weight distribution.

Despite being a cargo van, the cabin looks high-tech, thanks to features such as a digital driver display, a central touchscreen, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, voice-controlled connected navigation, wireless smartphone charging, heated seats, and safety systems such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring and so on.

The e-Partner is powered by a single electric motor that develops a maximum of 100 kW (136 metric hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. There are three driving modes that control the motor’s output —

  • Eco (60 kW, 190 Nm)
  • Normal (80 kW, 210 Nm)
  • Power (100 kW, 260 Nm)


The cargo van has a top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph), should you need to know. The battery pack is of a 50 kWh capacity, which is claimed to offer a range of up to 275 km (170 mi) as per WLTP (approval pending). A 7.4 kW single-phase on-board charger comes standard, while a 11 kW three-phase charger is optional. The battery pack is 100 kW fast-charging capable and if found a fast-charger, up to 80% charge is claimed to be achieved in 30 minutes.
