All-new 2020 Peugeot Partner launched across the GCC
The commercial vehicle has an increased load capacity of up to 1,000kg
French automotive manufacturer, Peugeot, has launched the all-new Peugeot Partner to the Middle East. Available across the GCC since June 2019, the all-new Peugeot Partner will be priced from $12,779.
Peugeot’s latest addition to its commercial vehicle range has an increased load capacity (up to 1,000kg), petrol and diesel engine options offering more power and less fuel consumption and includes Peugeot’s i-Cockpit system fitted as standard. A head-up display is available as standard to enable essential information to be received by the driver whilst he is still able to maintain his eye on the road, for safety and comfort.
Dimensions for Peugeot Partner are in line with the LCV segment, with a length of 4.40m for the standard version ensuring an optimum effective usable length of 1.81m. With a capacity ranging from 3.30m3 to 3.80m3 depending on the version, this is sufficient to accommodate 2 Europallets.
The Long version, which is 4.75m long (+35cm), provides even greater load capacity. The effective length of this version is 2.16m and a load capacity ranging from 3.90m3 to 4.40m3.
The van is built on a version of the EMP2 platform, which enables shorter overhangs and a small turning circle for easy manoeuvring: the kerb to kerb turning radius is only 10.82m for the Standard version and 11.43m for the Long version. The payload is one of the best in the segment, with values of 650kg up to 1,000kg.
Six anchoring rings are provided as standard to ensure loads are safely secured. It may be fitted with a Multiflex adaptable bench seat, so three people can sit in the front. The absence of the conventional handbrake lever makes it possible to widen the centre seat.
With a capacity of up to 113l, storage solutions have been designed for multiple professional usage. They are always to hand and cleverly distributed throughout the passenger area - glove box, seat pockets and even an upper glove box. Located opposite the passenger, it uses the space normally taken by the airbag (now a Bag-in Roof airbag) and is big enough to house a 15" computer, which can also be cooled. A cable grommet has been added to the box to enable a computer to be left on charge.
