Peugeot e-Partner electric van – first official details

  • Electric version of Peugeot Partner on sale in 2021
  • Shares tech with Citroen and Vauxhall
  • Expect driving range of over 150 miles per charge

Parkers award-winning Peugeot Partner will gain an electric version called the e-Partner in 2021

We’ve known for some time that Peugeot planned to launch an electric version of its Partner small van – in fact, the new version was designed with this in mind from day one. But now we have the first official technical info on the 2021 Peugeot e-Partner.

There’s not much to go on so far – just solid data on the electric motor and battery pack. But we do know that the e-Partner will go on sale in 2021, alongside the Citroen e-Berlingo and Vauxhall Combo-e.

These are all electric versions of the same small van, and a joint announcement from parent company Group PSA confirmed they will have identical technical specification.

What do we know about the Peugeot e-Partner so far?

The 2021 e-Partner will be powered by a 100kW electric motor – that’s equivalent to 136hp – hooked up to a 50kWh battery pack.

If those numbers sound vaguely familiar, that’s probably because they exactly correspond with the motor output and smaller battery size of the medium-sized Peugeot e-Expert electric van (and its siblings the Citroen e-Dispatch and Vauxhall Vivaro-e).

So while PSA hasn’t said as much, we can be pretty sure the two models will be using the same technology.

What’s the driving range of the e-Partner?

No word on this yet, though given the e-Expert has an official rating of 148 miles per charge in its 50kWh version, the e-Partner will certainly at least match that.

We’d actually expect it to go quite a bit further, being a smaller, lighter and more aerodynamic van.

On-board charging for the new small electric van will consist of 7.4kW single-phase or 11kw three-phase, depending on your supply. No word on rapid charging capability yet, but we’d be surprised if it wasn’t at least offered as an option.

The Peugeot Partner is joint winner of the 2020 and 2021 Parkers Small Van of the Year awards, so we’re expecting good things from the electric version. We’ll update this page with more details as soon as we have them.
