With its 3 brands Peugeot, Opel and Citroën, the PSA group has promised to play a major role in the electric utility market in 2021.
After the iconic Citroën ë-Berlingo and the new Opel Combo-e Cargo, presented every 2 days a few days ago, the turn has come for the Lion to complete the field with its e-Partner.
The 3 electric utilities are based on the same base, with a powertrain identical to the one on board the group’s passenger cars. It develops 100 kW of power and 260 Nm of torque.
Currently in the process of homologation, the autonomy is estimated at a maximum of 275 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle. It is obtained from a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery rechargeable via a Combo CCS connector up to a power approaching 100 kW (80% of energy recovered in 30 minutes).
Two lengths available
Like its twins, the Peugeot e-Partner is available in 2 lengths: M (4.40 m for a loading volume of 3.8 m3) and XL (4.75 m, 4.4 m3). Two models are also available: van up to 3 seats side by side, and deep cabin that can accommodate 5 people.
With a payload of up to 800 kilograms, this next-generation electric utility has a towing capacity of 750 kg.
What will certainly make the difference when choosing between one of the 3 twins, is the proximity to a dealer as well as the price, not communicated to date.
