Peugeot Releases Partner Tepee Electric Van Launch Video, If Only It Had A Little More Oompf

7 months ago by Mark Kane 8

Peugeot unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show its all-new electric model – the Partner Tepee Electric, that doesn’t necessarily bring with it any new technology.

PEUGEOT Partner Tepee Electric

At the very least, the Tepee’s uninspiring 22.5 kWh battery and 49 kW electric motor remains the same since 2012, and doesn’t motivate us to go pick one up…regardless of how hip and attractive the leather jacket models are in the new ad spot.

Overall, it still seems like fairly nice looking, functional van – if only it had the electrification specs to match.

The new Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric unites the advantages of the Partner Tepee leisure activity vehicle, which have made it such a success since its launch, and the pleasure of driving an electric vehicle.

It offers comfort for five passengers with a generous, modulable interior. Its certified range of 170 km matches the driving practices of the great majority of European motorists who drive a daily average of fewer than 60 km. Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric thus opens up electric vehicles to new possible uses: carpooling with five people or leisure activities for the family, for example, are now compatible with electric mobility.”

    It could be a good car since many families have an other car for longer trip, so the success will depend of the price. Other PSA cars as the Citroen zero and de Peugeot Ion have a small autonomy and a small price and have more success than eGolf or Kia Soul or BMW i3, at least in France.

    To late, the Kangoo will have ~50% more kWh. And surely Nissan have something big in their sleeves next year.

    1. Chris says:

      But will the Kangoo have fast charging?
      To what Renault reveiled until now, it does not look like it.
      And with 7kW charging even 180km range is a show stopper.

  3. Martin Winlow says:

    Even with ‘only’ 22.5kWh of battery, this vehicle could still work extremely satisfactorily, in both a domestic and commercial context, in many European large cities where the average speed is under 10mph and range not really a problem (likewise charging). Also, in London, for example, saving £11 per day in ‘congestion charge’ would go a long way to make up for the downsides. As long as the purchase price reflects the relative paucity of kWh compared to the competition…

  4. Seth says:

    It’s a i-MiEV underneath, so it has all the drawbacks of 2010 technology. Does this car even have a CCS plug or are they still using the ChADEMO and 3,3kW charger combo.

    1. Chris says:

      Who cares about CCS? Chademo is, in some parts of Europe, more available then CCS.
      And 3.3kW is okay for overnight charging.
      This is not a long range car sure, but for the intended porpuse, more then okay.

  5. Bill Howland says:

    I don’t know about other EV drivers here, but I’d need at least 160 kilometre range for even a ‘second’ car. Yeah I suppose I could ‘make do’ with less, but then I’d just buy a used EV instead..

    The upper-middle class people in this advertisement look like they could afford a Rolls anyway.

  6. randomhuman says:

    Wow…amazing technology…That’s why they’re only showing the Models and not even a single spec. And with that kinda big fat Villa they’re likely to buy a Model X or S instead of a Peugeot…or did you ever saw a millionaire in a…Peugeot…It’s so outdated.
