The front end features the brand's signature vertical grille, flanked by sleek LED headlights. The van's side profile is clean and uncluttered, with a rising beltline that adds a touch of dynamism. The rear end is simple and functional, with large taillights and a wide loading bay.

Peugeot e-Expert Exterior

The Peugeot e-Expert is a practical van that is designed to meet the needs of businesses and individuals. The cargo area is spacious and easy to access, with a low loading lip and wide opening doors. The van also comes with a range of storage compartments, including a lockable glovebox and a handy overhead shelf. The e-Expert is available in two body lengths: Standard and Long. The Standard model has a load volume of 6.1 cubic metres, while the Long model offers a generous 6.7 cubic metres of space. The payload capacity ranges from 905kg to 1,430kg, depending on the model.

The Peugeot e-Expert's boot space is impressive for an electric van. The Standard model offers a load volume of 5.2 cubic metres, while the Long model provides a generous 6.8 cubic metres of space. These figures are more than enough for most daily commutes and deliveries. The boot is well-designed and easy to access, with a low-loading lip and wide-opening doors. The boot floor is also flat, making loading and unloading cargo easy.

Interior and Trims

The Peugeot e-Expert's interior is designed to be both comfortable and functional. The cabin is spacious and well-lit, with plenty of legroom and headroom for both the driver and passenger. The seats are supportive and comfortable, even on long journeys.

The dashboard is laid out logically and is easy to use. The central touchscreen is a great size and is responsive to the touch. The instrument cluster is also clear and easy to read.

Two trim levels are available: Professional Premium and Asphalt Premium.

The Peugeot e-Expert Professional Premium trim offers a comprehensive set of features, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a versatile and well-equipped electric van. This trim includes practical elements such as a full steel bulkhead, twin side sliding doors, and a Moduwork load-through bulkhead with a dual front passenger seat. The interior is designed for convenience and comfort, featuring air-conditioning, Bluetooth, and a DAB radio. Technological enhancements include a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Additionally, the Professional Premium trim incorporates safety and convenience features like cruise control with speed limiter, automatic lights and wipers, daytime running lights, and remote central locking.

For those desiring additional premium features, the Peugeot e-Expert Asphalt Premium trim builds upon the Professional Premium trim with advanced capabilities. This higher-tier trim introduces Peugeot Connected 3D navigation with voice recognition, providing enhanced guidance for journeys. The Asphalt Premium trim also includes a three-year subscription to TomTom Live and SpeedCam/Danger Zones, offering real-time traffic updates and alerts. Technological sophistication is further elevated with a head-up display and a 180-degree parking camera system, accompanied by front and rear sensors and a reversing camera. Safety measures are enhanced through the inclusion of a Safety Pack, a Driver Assist Pack, and a Security Pack, providing a comprehensive suite of protective features for a heightened driving experience.

Power and Performance

The e-Expert is available with two battery options: a 50kWh unit that provides a range of up to 143 miles and a larger 75kWh battery that extends the range to 205 miles. These figures are respectable for an electric van, and they should be sufficient for most daily commutes and deliveries.

Furthermore, the e-Expert boasts impressive charging capabilities. It can be charged from 10% to 80% in just 30 minutes using a 100kW DC rapid charger. This means that drivers can top up their batteries quickly and easily, even on longer journeys.

The electric motor is very responsive and provides instant torque, making the e-Expert feel quick off the mark. The van also handles well and is surprisingly agile for its size.

Peugeot e-Expert Interior

The e-Expert has three driving modes: Eco, Normal, and Power. Eco mode is designed to maximize range, while Power mode provides the most performance. Normal mode is a good balance between the two.

The e-Expert's regenerative braking system helps to extend the range by recovering energy when the van is decelerating. The driver can also choose from two levels of regenerative braking: Moderate and Increased.

Overall, the Peugeot e-Expert is a powerful and performance-capable van that is well-suited for a variety of tasks, making it an ideal leasing option.
