Peugeot Australia has opened pre-orders of its e-Partner electric van ahead of its arrival in mid-2023.
Priced from $59,990 before on-road costs, the e-Partner is over $20,000 more expensive than the Partner City long-wheelbase.
Powering the e-Partner is a single electric motor producing 100kW of power and 260Nm of torque.
This is mated to a 50kWh battery pack with 245km of claimed range, according to WLTP testing.
The e-Partner is available exclusively in a single, long-wheelbase variant with dual rear swing barn doors. It has a loading volume of 3.9 cubic metres and a payload of 834kg.
The Peugeot e-Partner is the first electric vehicle (EV) the company’s local division plans to launch this year. The e-2008 is set to arrive in the third quarter of 2023.
The e-2008 and e-Partner are expected to be joined by the city-sized e-208 hatchback before the end of the year, marking the first time the current-generation 208 will be offered in the Australian market in any form.
“The third generation Partner arrived in Australia in 2018 and since then has proven to meet a variety of needs for local small and medium sized businesses,” said Peugeot Australia managing director Kate Gillis.
“We believe the benefits of the fully electric e-Partner will resonate with Australian consumers seeking a highly capable and efficient workhorse.”
