Perhaps Peugeot has a particularly stubborn set of executives, engineers or designers that has enabled it to break ranks from ‘the norm’ when it comes to its Peugeot e-Partner small electric van.
You see, the e-Partner was developed alongside the Citroën e-Berlingo, Toyota Proace City Electric and Vauxhall Combo-e, with all four models the same in most respects. However, while this extends to the interior designs of the others, the e-Partner gets a bespoke dashboard, which features the i-Cockpit layout from the brand’s passenger cars.
Professional Premium offers a mid-level specification, while Asphalt Premium adds features pitched at drivers who will spend longer behind the wheel. In this respect, the e-Partner is the same as the e-Berlingo, whereas the entry-level Combo-e is cheaper and less generously equipped, and the Toyota Proace City Electric aimed at buyers willing to pay more for a very high level of standard kit.
Aside from its siblings, rivals to the Peugeot e-Partner currently only include the Maxus E Deliver 3, Nissan e-NV200 and Renault Kangoo ZE, although a revised Kangoo E-Tech will arrive soon alongside the jointly developed Mercedes eCitan. But whatever you choose, take a look at our rundown of the best electric vans to buy today.
