Partner is Ireland’s best-selling van

Wednesday, 12th February, 2020 3:59pm

Capturing 8.9 per cent share of the critical January market, Partner van sales grew 35.9 per cent year-on-year. Peugeot’s total LCV market share grew by 28.1 per cent in the month, driving the lion-brand up into third position in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) sales podium, from fourth place in January 2019, to now command 11.5 per cent of the overall LCV market.

Colin Sheridan, Sales and Marketing Director at Gowan Distributors, Peugeot importer in Ireland, said: “Our LCV performance in January 2020 has been very strong, as demand for the award-winning Partner, Expert and Boxer van continues to soar, backed by growing interest in our 308 and 3008 car derived vans. We now look forward to the arrival mid-year of the new all-electric e-Expert van, whilst the new e-Boxer will follow before year end.”

Boasting a modern, robust exterior styling, the Partner van is the first light commercial vehicle in the range to receive the acclaimed Peugeot i-Cockpit interior comprising a compact steering wheel and heads up instrument panel.

The Peugeot Partner, a former International Van of the Year winner, is available in a choice of six trims to ensure business needs are met: Access, Active, Active Plus, Professional, Professional Plus and Grip trim.

Standard equipment from the Access model includes USB, Bluetooth and jack connectivity, 15” wheels, spare wheel, driver and passenger airbags, overhead storage, rear panelled doors and full steel bulkhead.

Two major innovations can be found on the extensive options list: the Overload Indicator for safe loading within the maximum authorised payload and Surround Rear Vision, which provides blind-spot camera vision or rear view vision when driving (standard on Professional Plus trim).

Three diesel engines are available: a 1.5 BlueHDi diesel 75bhp 5-spd manual; a 1.5 BlueHDi diesel 100bhp S&S 5-spd manual, a 1.5 BlueHDi 130bhp S&S 6-spd manual, a 1.5 BlueHDi 130bhp S&S automatic eight speed S&S. Available in two lengths, payloads range from 650KG to 1,000KG and up to two Europallets can be accommodated.

The Partner range retails from €16,935 plus delivery related charges, or ex-VAT from €13,806 plus delivery.
