Peugeot Partner 2023: Australian pricing and driving range revealed for E-Partner electric van


The French car brand has announced local pricing for its first electric van, but it’s over $20,000 more expensive than its combustion alternative 

Peugeot has finally announced local pricing and specifications for its first electric model, the E-Partner, as pre-orders open across the country. 

Offered in a single variant, the E-Partner will start from $59,990 before on-road costs – some $20,000 more than the most expensive petrol Partner

The E-Partner will compete with the likes of the Renault Kangoo E-Tech, along with petrol alternatives like the Volkswagen Caddy

Powered by a 50kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the E-Partner will be capable of driving up to 245km (WLTP) on a single charge. 

An electric motor mounted on the front wheels will produce outputs of 100kW/260Nm. Charging the E-Partner will take approximately seven and a half hours with a three-phase, 11kW wall box, or as little as 30 minutes with a 100kW fast charger. 

The books are now open for the E-Partner in Australia and those interested are urged to contact their local Peugeot dealership.

What else should I know about the e-partner electric van?

Inside the E-Partner, there is 3.9 cubic metres of load space which can be accessed through the rear barn-style doors.

The E-Partner will feature safety technologies such as autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, speed sign recognition and both a reversing camera and reversing sensors. 

Bluetooth and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard, however Peugeot Australia has not revealed the size of the infotainment screen. It’s likely to be the same 5.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreen as found in other Partner vans. 

What’s changed over the last generation of E-Partner?

The Peugeot Partner is also known as the Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot E-Rifter in other markets. Previously, the van featured the same battery and electric system used in the Mitsubishi I-MiEV small city car. It produced just 49kW of power. 

The current E-Partner/ Rifter has been on sale in Europe since 2021. 

Can I specify my e-Partner with optional extras?
