While it might be the Ford Transit Custom that’s the standalone market leader in the medium panel van market in the UK, it’s Stellantis and its group of brands that has the biggest market share across Europe. The Peugeot e-Expert shares its platform with the Citroen e-Dispatch and Vauxhall Vivaro Electric – but how does the Peugeot e-Expert compare? Read our Peugeot e-Expert in-depth review to find out.

The Peugeot e-Expert is a fully electric van, which makes it ideal for urban deliveries and low-emission zones. It uses the same 145PS electric motor as its sister models, meaning it is happy carrying heavy loads, while a full charge will give it a WLTP-rated range of 143 or 196 miles depending on battery choice (there are two). It’s not ideal for long-distance work, but is class-competitive for a medium-sized electric van is suitable for urban delivery rounds, which is where the e-Expert comes into its own.

There are two battery options to choose from – 50kWh and 75kWh. The smaller of the two is used in Peugeot, Citroen, Fiat and Vauxhall cars and can manage 143 miles on the WLTP cycle. The more expensive LCV-oriented 75kWh option is a much better option if you have the budget and will cover 196 miles on a charge, based on the WLTP test criteria.

A longer-range model is expected in 2024, but for now it still offers a greater distance-per-charge than the Mercedes eVito, for example.

The e-Expert also uses regenerative braking technology to partly boost the battery, meaning that it’s often at its best on urban rounds where the quoted range is most attainable.

Three wheelbases are offered: compact, standard and long, but there’s no double cab option.
