The Peugeot e-Expert panel van will hit the UK next year with a maximum all-electric range of 186 miles

Peugeot has revealed a new, all-electric version of its mid-sized Expert panel van. Called the e-Expert, it has a maximum claimed range of 186 miles and forms part of the French brand’s goal to electrify its entire light commercial vehicle range by 2021. The new Peugeot e-Expert will reach the UK market in the second half of 2020.

Like the recently released all-electric Vauxhall Vivaro-e, the Peugeot e-Expert will be based on PSA’s EMP2 platform. Buyers will be offered two battery sizes – a 50kWh unit, which offers a maximum WLTP range of 125 miles, or an optional 75kWh unit, which will offer an extra 61 miles of range.

Official specifications are yet to be confirmed but as the Peugeot e-Expert shares its body-in-white with the conventionally powered model, it should offer the same load-carrying capability. Also, given its position towards the top of the Expert line-up, we expect it will feature at least the same level of equipment as the mid-range Professional model.

As standard, buyers should get body-coloured bumpers, LED daytime running lights, cruise control, a speed limiter, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers a redesigned radiator grille and a charging port mounted on the front nearside wing. Like the standard Expert, alloy wheels and PSA’s Grip Control system should also be offered as optional extras.
