PEUGEOT e-Partner named DrivingElectric ‘Best Small Electric Van’ for second year running

PEUGEOT e-Partner has scooped the ‘Best Small Electric Van’ title at the 2023 DrivingElectric Awards. Winning the award for the second year running, the judges praised e-Partner’s ease of use, versatility, and electric powertrain.

The e-Partner is powered by a 50kWh battery providing a range of up to 171 miles (WLTP). The van offers a load volume of 4.4m3 (matching its diesel equivalent) and a payload of up to 800kg. Customers can choose from two body styles (Standard and Long) and from Panel Van (up to 3 seats) and Crew Van (up to 5 seats) configurations.

PEUGEOT is one of few manufacturers in the UK able to offer an electric variant across its entire van model line-up, and is working to offer an electrified version across its entire vehicle range by 2024, before becoming an electric-only brand in 2030.

Richard Ingram, Editor of DrivingElectric, said: ““The PEUGEOT e-Partner, along with its Toyota, Citroën, Fiat and Vauxhall siblings, is our Best Small Electric Van for 2023. Easy to drive, versatile and quick to charge, it makes the switch to electric a no-brainer for so many business owners.”

Julie David, Managing Director, PEUGEOT UK, said “I’m delighted that the PEUGEOT e-Partner has been recognised for the second year running as ‘Best Small Electric Van’ at the DrivingElectric Awards. We’ve worked extremely hard to ensure that our electric LCV range suits the needs of businesses and we’re delighted that industry experts continue to recognise that.”

The 2023 DrivingElectric Awards recognise the best electric and hybrid vehicles available to drive in the UK, judged by a panel of experts who have driven thousands of miles behind the wheels of the UK’s latest electric models.
