Peugeot has presented the electric version of its Expert transporter, which will be launched in the second half of 2020. This means that all light commercial vehicles from Peugeot are now also available in a purely electric version.
As the electric Expert is also based on the PSA Group’s EMP2 platform, the technical data of the drive corresponds to those of the Opel Vivaro-e and Citroën Jumpy. Two different battery sizes (50 and 75 kWh) are offered, which should enable WLTP ranges of 200 and 300 kilometres respectively.
Peugeot has not yet provided any information on the load volume or payload capacity – not even whether the values are at the level of the combustion variants or are somewhat lower due to the battery.
Like Citroën and Opel, Peugeot has also not yet given any prices for its electric transport van. Instead, the manufacturer refers to the complete electrification of its own commercial vehicle fleet in the corresponding press release. “Following our partners Electric and Boxer Electric, we are now also presenting the Expert as a fully electric version. We now offer all light commercial vehicles with electric motors,” says Steffen Raschig, Managing Director of Peugeot Germany. “In total, we are already offering eight Peugeot models with electric motors.”
