If you are a business owner or fleet manager looking for sporty looking medium van with top-end payload and fuel economy, the Peugeot Expert, with its engine power, high payload, safety and tech features and car-like drive is an excellent choice.
The handsome Expert comes in both diesel and electric versions with a great choice of trims. 3 body lengths and gross vehicle weights and one roof height for all. The lengths are Compact (4,609mm), Standard (4,959mm) and Long (5,309mm) with a standard width for all 3 (1,929mm), twin sliding doors and full steel bulkhead. If this is not quite enough, you can upgrade to automatic opening system, which works with a wave of the foot under the rear bumper, pretty cool.
The diesel engines and trims for the Expert are 1.5 litre and 2.0 litre Blue HDi diesel engine options, ranging from 95hp right up to 180hp (5 options), the biggest engine coming with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. (The Grip and Asphalt trim levels joined Peugeot Expert in 2019). For the e-Expert electric (on sale since 2020) you get an impressive driving range of over 200 miles, with a high payload capacity.
The load dimensions are 2,160mm (Compact), 2,510mm (Standard) and 2,860 (Long) with load lengths of 3,324mm, 3,674mm and 4,024mm respectively. Moduwork comes as standard on all models (bar entry S), which includes a gate to pass long items through the bulkhead while the outer passenger seat folds out of the way to make space (0.5m3 extra).
All models come with 6 minimum load lashing points and a handy internal light in the back plus 12v socket in the load area too. The 3 models have 3 nominated gross vehicle weights (2.7t, 2.9t and 3.1t) with payloads of 1,000kg, 1200kg and 1400kg for towing.
