Peugeot e-Expert electric van launched with 186-mile range

Peugeot has confirmed plans to launch an electric medium size van in the UK in 2020. The e-Expert will have a maximum range of 186-miles and offer the same load volume as the conventional diesel-powered Peugeot Expert. 

There are no details about pricing for the new electric Peugeot e-Expert, but buyers will be able to choose between two battery sizes, 50kWh and 70kWh, with a respective 124 or 186-miles range. Both figures have been achieved under WLTP testing rules, which means they should be reflective of real world driving. 

The e-Expert will be built at PSA's Hordain plant in northern France, alongside electric versions of the Vauxhall Vivaro and Citroen Dispatch. 

Peugeot is yet to confirm payloads and bodystyles for the new van, but has said the electric version will mirror the load volume of the standard diesel Expert. This means the e-Expert will provide up to 6.6 cubic metres and have a maximum load length of four metres, when fitted with a bulkhead hatch.  

The electric e-Expert is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2020. Peugeot has pledge to electrify its entire van range by 2021.
