A market in full e-volution :
The compact van segment 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 with a range adapted to the specific professional uses, the PEUGEOT Expert now offers a 100% electric version, the PEUGEOT e-Expert.
Nearly 80% of commercial vehicle drivers travel, on average, less than 124miles (200 km) per day, making the all-new PEUGEOT e-Expert the ideal choice. In addition, town centres are become increasingly restricted, with some only allowing 100% electric vehicle access. This fully electric 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.
Suitable for multiple uses, the PEUGEOT e-Expert can even undergo conversions by Coachbuilders, in particular those based on the cabin floor (e.g. refrigeration cell).

*Specifications may vary in the UK
** The WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure) is used to measure fuel consumption, electric range and CO2 figures. The fuel consumption or electric range achieved, and CO2 produced (where applicable), in real world conditions will depend upon a number of factors including, but not limited to: the accessories fitted (pre and post registration); the starting charge of the battery (electric only); variations in weather; driving styles and vehicle load.
***The vehicle will rapid charge at a rate of up to 100kW, depending on the power of the rapid charging station used and will take longer to charge at a lower power. Rapid charging stations are available across the UK at various locations and their power rating varies, typically from 50kW and sometimes up to 350kW.
