Performance & drive
What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is
The way the Partner Electric drives is, without doubt, its best feature. The Partner handles quite well as a diesel, but as is generallly the case, the low-mounted additional weight of a battery pack really helps to improve stability.
The suspension is still a little soft and you still have to put up with some wallow through corners, but this is hardly a vehicle for setting lap records anywhere, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
