Peugeot e-Expert electric van to debut in 2020

Peugeot's mid-size e-Expert electric van gets two battery sizes

Peugeot e-Expert

Peugeot has confirmed the launch of an electric version of its mid-size Expert electric van, joining the smaller Partner and larger Boxer in the French brand's zero-emissions commercial-vehicle line-up.

The Peugeot e-Expert, as the electric version will be known, is a sister model to the already-revealed Vauxhall Vivaro-e and Citroen Dispatch Electric.

Like those vans, it'll be offered with a choice of 50 or 75kWh batteries, giving a range of 124 or 186 miles respectively. It'll go on sale in the second half of 2020.

Inside, the e-Expert will have an identical load space to its diesel-engined counterpart, with no encroachment from the battery packs.

Like other pure-electric and plug-in hybrid vans, the e-Expert has been created with urban users in mind, in the context of increasing pollution legislation and low-emissions zones implementation in cities.

Peugeot's passenger-car range is electrifying, too, with a pure-electric e-208 hatchback, as well as plug-in hybrid versions of the 3008 SUV508 fastback and 508 estate also imminent.
