Peugeot is to add an electric version of its Partner LCV (Light Commercial Vehicle) to the range during the 2nd quarter of 2013. With a drive train developed in conjunction with Mitsubishi, the Partner Electrique runs a single permanent magnet, synchronous electric motor producing 49kW (67bhp) and torque of 200Nm and has a range of 170km (105 miles) based on the European cycle (NEDC). The LCV will be available in short and long wheelbase versions (4.38m and 4.63m), both with claimed class-leading load volumes.

The Partner Electrique has a battery capacity of 22.5 kW/h, arranged in two battery packs which are fitted underneath the vehicle on either side of the rear axle to maintain the Partner’s balance without encroaching on the useable dimensions of the load space.

The Partner Electrique features two different charging systems for its battery: a normal charge (up to 16 A) in six to nine hours and a fast charge (up to 125 A) which will replenish 80 percent of the battery capacity in 30 minutes.

In order to aid energy-efficient driving, the Partner Electrique's instrument panel features an energy consumption and recovery indicator and an auxiliary consumption gauge which indicates the power drawn by the heating and air conditioning system. The trip computer also displays the remaining range and the average energy consumption in kWh.

There's also an electronic stability system (ESP) as standard, hill start assist, and the Partner's hallmark Multi-flex bench seat that can seat three people up front and when folded, allowing the load volume to be significantly increased.
