PEUGEOT has revealed the all new Partner small panel van.
Said to be the perfect answer to trades and small businesses by combining practicality with a dynamic drive, a stress-free mobile office and safety.
All-new Peugeot Partner has a generous load capacity and payload and is also fitted with an Overload Alert System – a new on-board technology to guarantee total safety.
The van’s mass is automatically measured when the ignition is switched on and can also be measured from the load area when the vehicle is stationary.
Once 90% of the total load capacity has been reached, a white LED lights up on the control button; if the maximum authorised load is exceeded a yellow LED lights up, supplemented by a visual warning on the dashboard.
This new optional feature will be hugely advantageous to van operators. Not only does it avoid vehicle overload, the handling is not compromised and associated dangers, such as burst tyres, loss of control of the vehicle, premature wear of components, higher fuel consumption and the risk of being fined are also avoided.
New technology does not stop there.
Depending on the version, Partner has electric parking brake, adaptive cruise control, extended traffic sign recognition, active lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, active safety brake, a tow-bar stabiliser, automatic headlight dipping, blind spot monitoring and hands-free entry and start.
A large 8″ colour touch screen provides connectivity. There are two USB sockets, one auxiliary socket and Bluetooth.
The connected 3D navigation system features voice control, enabling points of interest to be found in a simple and intuitive way. A 3 year subscription is offered free of charge, providing real-time traffic conditions (TomTom Traffic) and live information related to car-parks, fuel stations and the weather forecast on your route.
To facilitate everyday usage and to help manage vehicle maintenance, fuel consumption and journey analysis, all-new PEUGEOT PARTNER offers a range of connectivity options and all UK vehicles come from factory connected-ready.
Business van managers can choose from three different telematics packages from Free2Move Connect Fleet, providing efficiency and optimisation of fleet management.
These use true vehicle CAN bus data to provide accurate information to suit a fleet manager’s needs – whether that’s mileage tracking, hours of use, fuel consumption or real-time monitoring of service intervals and mechanical alerts. Driving analysis with customised advice for the driver and real-time location tracking are also available, assisting businesses in driving down both the costs and risk associated with vehicle management.
New Partner dimensions
The Partner length is 4.40m for the Standard version ensuring an optimum effective usable length of 1.81m. With a capacity ranging from 3.30cu m to 3.80 cu m depending on the version, this is sufficient to accommodate two 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 3.90cu m to 4.40cu m.
The payload is one of the best in the segment, with values of 650kg and up to 1000kg for certain versions, both Standard and Long. The very low fuel consumption versions have a 600kg payload.
Six anchoring rings are provided as standard to ensure that your loads are safely secured. As an option, four more mid-height load securing rings, a 12v socket and superior lighting with 6 LEDs providing an output of 237lm may be added.
There’s a standard nearside sliding side door on Standard versions. An additional offside sliding side door is available as an option on Standard versions and is standard equipment on Long versions.
There’s a range of two petrol and three diesel engines.
In addition to the standard finish levels, for the first time, all-new Peugeot Partner can be ordered in “ready-to-go” versions for certain ‘specific use’ profiles.
Grip is a version that fully meets the need to access difficult terrains and which can accept heavy, dirty, long loads while maintaining enough room for 3 people.
Asphalt has been designed for professionals who do a lot of mileage, spend a lot of hours in their vehicle and who above all are seeking comfort and safety. This version includes upgraded soundproofing providing an acoustic benchmark, “Comfort” seats, Surround Rear Vision, electric parking brake, connected radio with 8″ touch screen, speed limiter and cruise control, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, connected 3D navigation system and 16” alloy wheels.
All-new Peugeot Partner will be available to order from Autumn 2018.
