Charging a Peugeot Partner Electric

The Partner Electric comes with a battery size of 23kWh and has an official NEDC range of 106 miles.

Charging times will, of course, vary based on the power of the charger. However, it is worth noting the on-board charging capabilities max out at 3.7kW AC, limiting the Partner’s usability. If you plugged into a 7.4kW charger, the van would continue to charge at 3.7kW. Using a dedicated home charging device, you can charge the Partner Electric from empty to full in 6 hours.

Unlike its direct competitor, the Renault Kangoo Z.E. 33, the Partner Electric comes with a CHAdeMO connector option, enabling you to make use of the rapid charging network that is expanding across the UK. Plugged into a 50kW charging station, the Partner Electric will charge from 20-80% in just 20 minutes.

Charging Times**:

  • 2.1kW (3-pin plug) = 10h for 0-100%
  • 3.4kW = 6h for 0-100%
  • 7.4kW = 6h for 0-100%
  • 50kW = 20m for 20-80%

*Based on WLTP range

**Charging times are estimates and will vary depending on factors such as the charger in use and temperature of the battery.

Benefits of owning a Peugeot Partner Electric

Classified as a BEV, the electric Partner produces zero emissions which results in several benefits. Road tax, Ultra Low Emission Zones and London Congestion Charge all come in at an attractive £0. In addition to regular and yearly savings, this Peugeot van qualifies for the OLEV Plug-in car and Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) grants.

The Partner Electric is a much more enjoyable drive than its internal combustion engine siblings. With decent volume capacity, cheaper running costs, rapid charging efficiencies and smooth, quiet driving experience, this electric van offers a compelling alternative for those who spend their day commuting through busy cities and towns.
