The Swiss venue will mark the official worldwide public debut of the newest version in the Partner range – the all-electric Partner Tepee Electric leisure activity vehicle.
The model is designed for active families and comes with all the improvements brought about by the refreshed Partner Tepee – but has the same hardware components as the Partner Electric van first seen back in 2012. This means there’s a powertrain consisting of a compact electric motor good for 67 horsepower (49 kilowatts) and 147 pound-feet (200 Newton-meters) of torque, sending power to the front wheels. There are two lithium-ion battery packs with a 22.5-kWh capacity, tucked inside the underframe at either side of the rear suspension. The vehicle has a range of 105 miles (170 kilometers) on a complete charge in the highly optimistic New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
The French automaker added the build of the suspension with the integrated batteries delivers a low center of gravity for “dynamic driving and good maneuverability.” The batteries can be charged to 80 percent in 30 minutes, with a home charging taking anything in between 8.5 and 15 hours depending on outlet amperage. The model has an app companion allowing for a remotely-controlled climate system, the state of charge and others on the mobile device. Standard perks include cruise control, ESC, height-adjustable driver’s seat – but more importantly the cabin has ample space for five and up to 1,350 liters of trunk capacity.
