Peugeot electrifies the Expert van range

The Peugeot Expert now offers a new range for the Irish market in the compact van segment with a 100% electric power train. A perfect example of the power of choice, the new Peugeot e-Expert has: an option of 2 different driving ranges offering up to 330km in the WLTP certification cycle, 3 lengths, towing capability up to 1000 kg and payload up to 1275 kg whilst maintaining the same loading volume as the internal combustion version.
Suitable for all jobs, with a large loading volume, a workspace that makes daily life easier, on-board technology and strong style, the new Peugeot e-Expert also allows unrestricted access to town centres. Featuring all the original qualities of the Peugeot Expert, without compromise and now with zero emissions.

A market in full e-volution
The compact van segment market in Europe represents more than 750,000 vehicles per year, and the Peugeot Expert has been increasing its market share every year since its launch in 2016.
Recently upgraded to Euro 6D standards with a range adapted to the specific uses of professionals, the Peugeot Expert is now available in a 100% electric version. The new version has kept the advantages of the Peugeot Expert, including the Compact version, which is unique in this segment and particularly suited to narrow streets and congested city centres.
The Peugeot e-Expert is capable of meeting business needs for many customers: craftsman (florists, plumbers, electricians, etc.), companies concerned with their eco-responsible image and government bodies (hospitals, local authorities, etc.) who are looking for a zero-emission vehicle to transport goods between sites. For more specific uses, van conversions are also possible.

Strong and distinguished style
The new Peugeot e-Expert retains the style of the internal combustion versions, complemented by a few distinctive features. On the inside, you can see an analogue handset with colour matrix, specific graphics for the central touch screen with TomTom Traffic 3D connected Navigation, which now includes available charging points and range based on remaining battery life, a new automatic gearbox control, a drive mode selector switch to switch between Eco, Normal or Power mode and an electric parking brake.

100% Electric technology
Based on the EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform) multi-energy modular platform, the Peugeot e-Expert offers a 100% electric engine with a maximum power of 100 kW and a maximum torque of 260 Nm available from start-up for immediate reactivity, without vibration, noise, gear shifting, fuel odours and of course no CO2 emissions.
The electric drive train is similar to the new Peugeot e-208 and the new SUV Peugeot e-2008, albeit a change has been made to the gearbox, which is shorter in order to meet the loading constraints inherent to commercial vehicles.
The performances (in POWER mode) are as follows (data under approval):
• The maximum speed is 130 km/h
• 0 to 100 km/h in 13.1 sec
• The 1000m standing start in 35.8 sec
• Acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h in 12.1 sec

The new Peugeot e-Expert is the first Peugeot electric vehicle to offer a choice of 2 different driving ranges. Compact, Standard and Long versions are available with the 50 kWh lithium-ion battery capacity and allow a range of up to 230 km according to the WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedures) certification protocol. The Standard and Long versions can also be equipped with a 75 kWh lithium-ion battery with a capacity of up to 330 km, according to the same approval protocol.
The battery is guaranteed for 8 years or 160,000 km for 70% of its charge capacity.

Two types of on-board chargers are available, to suit all uses and all customer charging solutions, with a 7.4 kW single-phase charger as standard and an optional 11 kW three-phase charger.
Charging modes are flexible and adapted to each daily situation. Several types of charging are possible:
• From a dedicated public terminal, the temperature regulation of the battery allows you to
• use 100 kW chargers and to reach 80% charge in 30 min (50 kWh battery) or 45 min (75 kWh battery).
• From an 11 kW Wall Box, full charge in 5h (50 kWh battery) or 7h30 (75kWh battery) with the on-board three-phase charger (11 kW)
• From a 7.4 kW Wall Box, full charge in 7h30 (50 kWh battery) or 11h20 (75kWh battery) with the single-phase (7.4 kW) on-board charger
