Electric vehicles are certainly a hot topic today, but the Peugeot brand has far more heritage in this area than you might expect. Our first electric vehicle launched back in 1941, as a wartime solution to petrol rationing! Peugeot electric vehicles are designed to provide the technology and performance that you would expect from a ‘normal’ vehicle, while ensuring environmental impact is minimised. Vehicles are our livelihood, but the environment impacts all our lives. That’s why we’ve developed an eco-friendly 100% Peugeot Partner Electric.
The Partner Electric combines the Partner van’s great features – a versatile Multiflex interior & attractive styling – with an electric drivetrain to slash the running costs and reduce your company’s carbon footprint. But is it practical? Yes. It has a maximum range of 106 miles on a full charge*, and a top speed of 68 mph. Unlike many of its competitors the battery is included in the price and carries an 8 year warranty.
The benefits don’t stop there. Partner Electric is a 3 seater, with a dual passenger seat meaning you can carry crew as well as cargo. This Multiflex seat also folds flat when you don’t need it, meaning you can load through to the front of the vehicle as required. Partner Electric is fully loaded with specification – offering items such as a side load door, rear load liner and air conditioning as standard.
On the L1, load volume is up to 3.3m3 with a load length of 1.8m and a payload of up to 636kg. Alternatively you can go for the larger L2, with load volume of 3.7m3, load length of 2.05m and a payload of 552kg. So choose the Partner Electric – the benchmark for electric vans.

Partner Electric is eligible for the government’s Plug-in Van Grant – a 20% subsidy on purchase price**.
From money off charging solutions (see below), to exemptions from London’s Congestion Charge and Toxicity Charge, there are plenty of ways to save once you’re an electric vehicle owner.
** Plug In Van Grant from government is 20% of vehicle price after any customer discount. It excludes any options, accessories, delivery-to-dealer, number plates and First Registration Fee. It is claimed from the government by your supplying Dealership and therefore deducted off invoice.
When it comes to charging your vehicle, Partner Electric offers you 3 solutions. All our vans are equipped with a 50kW DC rapid charge port, which will allow 80% charge of your battery in just 30 minutes. With rapid charge stations at the majority of UK service stations, this means those longer journeys are still viable – as is using your van round the clock. Most of our customers routinely charge their vehicles overnight using the AC ‘standard’ charging port and a Type 2 chargepoint, and if necessary you can even charge from a domestic plug socket***.
We recommend you speak to an expert when looking at which chargepoints might suit your business best. Our partners Pod Point are one of the UKs leading installers, and are fully approved on the government subsidy schemes for home and workplace chargepoints. Don’t hesitate to contact them to discuss your charging needs.
***Type 2 charging cable provided as standard. Additional accessory cable required for domestic charging.
