Peugeot Partner and E-Partner
Spanning 20 years of research and testing, the latest generation of Peugeot Partners come with a pros-tested seal of approval. Available in an efficient diesel or all-electric powertrain, Peugeot’s unique i-Cockpit adds to the convenience and comfort in this line of commercial vehicles.
Ideal for a range of business needs, whether it’s self-employed professionals or fleet managers, the Peugeot Partner and e-Partner can be tailored to your specific needs. It’s available in Panel Van and Crew Van body styles with multiple specification levels: S Premium, Grip Premium, Professional Premium and Asphalt Premium.
Each spec design meets individual requirements. If you spend a lot of time on the road, and require good connectivity and navigation as well as ample storage then the Asphalt Premium is for you.
If your business requires you to drive on tough terrain, you need the Grip Premium with enhanced traction, and large 16” wheels with mud and snow tyres. It still has a massive 1000kg payload with LED lighting in the rear load area.
The Professional Premium Standard van is great for carrying heavy, bulky loads. Whilst transportation of people and cargo is best done in the e-Partner Crew Van.
Whether you opt for the Partner or the e-Partner, both versions benefit from the EMP2 modular multi-energy platform. Furthermore, the Peugeot e-Partner has an identical loading space and the same driving position as internal diesel engines. The 100 percent electric drive delivers up to 171 miles of driving range (WLTP), and has a towing capacity of 750kg. It’s available in both Panel Van and Crew Van, at either Standard or Long lengths.

Peugeot Expert and E-Expert
The Peugeot Expert van is the brand’s most-recognised commercial offering. Named the ‘Best Medium Van’ 2020 by Trade Van Driver, the Peugeot Expert van has a robust design that is supported with a wealth of elegant features. Business users will benefit from the well-balanced proportions of a van that aligns the front end, the driving position, and the load area to meet the needs of all your day-to-day operations.

Asphalt comes with top-of-the-range safety features and several driving aids as Standard. This includes front fog lights, smartbeam headlights, connected 3D navigation, lane departure warning, and recognition and blind spot monitoring to name but a few.
I Inside, the Expert comes with all kinds of goodies. Superior driver comfort is achieved with an easy access elevated seating position, allowing the driver to dominate the road. The functional and ergonomic driving position also flows into the cabin space, where numerous storage compartments, a large 7” colour touchscreen, and the on-board Moduwork (swivel table and arm rest), all help to shape a comfy mobile office.
The Expert is further elevated with many configurations now available in full-electric powertrain. The e-Expert was named International Van of the Year 2021. With an excellent battery capacity and range of 205 miles (WLTP), the e-Expert comes with a raft of specific tech and features.
