PEUGEOT announced the delivery of its first fully electric light commercial vehicle in the UAE
Called the PEUGEOT E-Partner, the vehicle will be launched by its local dealership PEUGEOT Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, the automotive division of Omeir Bin Youssef & Sons, to Abu Dhabi based sustainability company, EMOB. PEUGEOT’s first LCV customer in Abu Dhabi, EMOB, specialises in bringing electric vehicle (EV) charging services directly to drivers’ doorsteps, making EV charging convenient and accessible. The vehicle features a powerful electric propulsion system that delivers impressive acceleration and a smooth driving experience. The E-Partner ensures businesses can cover their daily operations efficiently. The spacious cargo capacity allows for easy transport of goods, and it comes with advanced safety features as well. Additionally, the E-Partner offers fast charging capabilities, enabling businesses to minimise downtime and maximise productivity.
As a part of its commitment to sustainability and promoting electric mobility, EMOB will incorporate additional PEUGEOT EVs into its fleet alongside the PEUGEOT E-Partner.
The PEUGEOT E-Partner offers a range of up to 285 km on a single charge and comes in two lengths: standard and long (with a focus on commercialising the long version for the E-Partner). It has a towing capacity of up to 750 kg, a payload of up to 800 kg, and a loading volume of up to 4.4m³.
Equipped with advanced on-board technologies, the E-Partner provides an enhanced driving experience. Built on the EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform), it houses a 100% electric engine with a maximum power of 100 kW and a maximum torque of 260 Nm. The E-Partner features a lithium-ion battery (18 modules) with a capacity of 50 kWh, enabling fast charging capabilities. With various charging modes, it can be fully charged in as little as 5 hours using an 11 kW Wall Box.
