Peugeot Partner goes electric
Peugeot has revealed the Partner Tepee Electric, which will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. It is aimed at people who want an electric vehicle with a versatile and adaptable interior. Cars are due to arrive in Ireland in time for the 181 registration in January 2018.
The electric drivetrain has not affected the practicality of the Peugeot Partner Tepee. Its modular interior can seat five or take up to 3,000 litres of luggage with the rear seats removed. There are also a variety of open and closed storage compartments.
A number of remote control features are available on the electric model. Using a smartphone or tablet it is possible to set the heating or air conditioning up to 30 minutes in advance. It is also possible to see the amount of battery charge and an estimated duration of the recharge.
Other items of standard equipment include cruise control, tyre pressure monitor, manual climate control, two sliding side doors and a height-adjustable driver's seat. Some models come with a seven-inch touchscreen and a reversing camera is available as an option.
Under the bonnet there is a 67hp electric motor, which is powered by two lithium-ion battery packs either side of the rear suspension. The quoted range is 170km on the New European Driving Cycle while an optional rapid recharge mode can take the batteries to 80 per cent in 30 minutes.
