Electric Peugeot Partner Tepee for Geneva reveal
New five-seat Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric MPV boasts electric power and a 100-mile range
An all-electric version of the Peugeot Partner Tepee will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The van-based MPV will have an electric range of 100 miles.
The Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric will be exempt from road tax under current and future VED regulations and the London Congestion Charge.
It'll be available to order later in 2017 and will come with an eight-year battery warranty, providing cover for 60,000 miles. There's no word yet on charging times. The MPV will be available through Peugeot’s dealer network, or customers can buy online.
The Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric will feature a range of connectivity features, such as the ability to control the air-conditioning and battery charging remotely using a smartphone. This should allow you to warm the car’s interior before leaving the house and time your charging to take advantage of cheaper energy tariffs.
Standard equipment will include a reversing camera, cruise control and hill-start assistance.
The electric drive systems have no impact on cargo capacity – the Partner Tepee Electric has the same boot space as the standard car. That means a 675-litre boot when loaded to the parcel shelf and 1,350 litres when loaded to the roof. When the rear seats are removed, space grows to 3,000 litres, with a completely flat load area.
Peugeot UK’s managing director David Peel said: “The Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric demonstrates our intention to make sustainable mobility accessible to all.
“Whether for personal or business use, the Partner Tepee Electric stands out thanks to its blend of practicality and efficiency. The vehicle offers an impressive range and is easy to run and maintain, making it a highly attractive option for those looking to switch to electric.”
