Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric to debut in Geneva

Peugeot is set to expand its EV range with the launch of an electric version of the Partner Tepee.

Combining the practicality of the Partner Tepee range with the low running costs and environmental credentials of an electric vehicle, the new model has a certified range of over 100 miles.

With zero emissions, drivers will be able to enter regulated-emissions zones during peak traffic times, and will also benefit from tax exemption with new VED regulations from 2017.

Connectivity features include remotely controlled air conditioning and battery charging, from a smartphone or tablet, while the standard specification also includes driving assistance with hill-assist start, cruise control and reversing camera. Its battery is under warranty for eight years or 60,000 miles.

Building on its predecessor’s practicality, the Partner Tepee Electric offers the option to remove the three seats in the middle row to create a completely flat load area. Luggage capacity remains 'among the best in its category' thanks to 1,350 litres of boot space with five passengers aboard, or 3,000 litres with the rear seats folded.

David Peel, Managing Director at Peugeot UK commented: “The Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric demonstrates our intention to make sustainable mobility accessible to all. Whether for personal or business use, the Partner Tepee Electric stands out thanks to its blend of practicality and efficiency. The vehicle offers an impressive range and is easy to run and maintain, making it a highly attractive option for those looking to switch to electric.”

The new Partner Tepee Electric will be launched officially at the Geneva International Motor Show in March and will be available to order later in the year.
