Peugeot has reduced pricing across its Expert range by £1,000, including the fully electric e-Expert.
The new model year sees updates across the entire Expert range, with every trim receiving a revised name. The Expert range will now be available in S Premium, Professional Premium and Asphalt Premium trims. Entry-level S Premium models are exclusively sold in Standard length, while Professional Premium and Asphalt Premium models can be specified in Standard or Long lengths. Professional Premium models can also be purchased in shortened Compact lengths, and is the trim level of choice on the Crew Van variant.
In response to increased customer demand for automatic versions, a new BlueHDi 145 EAT8 automatic engine has been introduced to the range. The gearbox will be offered on Professional Premium models.
All Expert and e-Expert models come standard with Peugeot Connect SOS & Assistance and a free six-month subscription to FREE2MOVE Connect Fleet Telematics, which includes Fleet Management, Eco Driving & Geolocation packs.
Professional Premium models come with a 7″ Capacitive colour touchscreen with DAB radio, Bluetooth® handsfree and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ inside, as well as rear parking sensors, an alarm, air conditioning and automatic lights and windscreen wipers.
Asphalt Premium trims add Peugeot’s Park Assist 180°, Connected 3D Navigation including a three-year subscription with live traffic updates, and 17” alloy wheels.
The new e-Expert offers two different battery sizes. Both a 50kWh and a 75kWh battery are offered on Standard and Long vehicle lengths. The 50kWh battery option is capable of up to 143 miles (WLTP Combined) of range from a single charge, with the 75kWh unit increasing this to 205 (WTLP Combined). Both units support up to 100kW rapid charging, with a 0-80% charge taking 30 minutes.
