    This third generation Partner Van bears all the hallmarks of the first two generations and brings increased loading capacities, improved dynamics, PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® and greater levels of driver assistance systems.

    The all-new Partner Van introduces new-to-segment technology, including a new Overload Indicator*, informing the driver when the maximum authorised mass is exceeded, and Surround Rear Vision which enhances the driver’s rear-view visibility, feeding back footage from two cameras to display on a 5-inch colour screen that replaces the traditional rear-view mirror.

    It also features Flankguard – a system informing the driver of the proximity of objects to the side of the manoeuvering vehicle and an Automatic Electronic Parking Brake (included with the Multi-Flex passenger seat and available as an option in vehicles with a single passenger seat).

    It comes available as a Panel Van, with two body and wheelbase lengths, four trim levels including two dedicated ‘Ready-To-Go’ versions – Asphalt and Grip – to suit different customer needs and a wide range of engines and gearboxes.

    Using the PEUGEOT Connect SOS & Assistance hardware, which is standard across the Partner Van range, Fleet Managers can choose from three different telematics packages from Free2Move Connect Fleet, providing efficiency and optimisation of fleet management. These use true vehicle CAN bus data to provide accurate information to suit a fleet manager’s needs – whether that’s mileage tracking, hours of use, fuel consumption or real-time monitoring of service intervals and mechanical alerts. Driving analysis with customised advice for the driver and real-time location tracking are also available, assisting businesses in driving down both the costs and risk associated with vehicle management.

    All-new Peugeot Partner reinforces the ambition to Master the Impossible.

    The "International Van Of The Year" * award was established in 1992. The jury is composed of a European panel of 25 journalists and independent magazine publishers specializing in light commercial vehicles (LCV).

    Free2Move Lease Command is a vehicle management service designed to help improve business efficiency during your vehicle contracts by enabling you to focus more on your business, less on managing your vehicles.

    Free2Move Lease Command Level 1 is a standard product on all vehicle contracts of 18 months or more duration. It is designed to provide service & MOT reminders, as well as potential excess mileage communications, through contract mileage monitoring. You can optionally upgrade to Free2Move Lease Command Level 2 which provides management of all maintenance, MOTs and repairs, ensuring that they are completed - providing you with peace of mind and reducing your admin.

Where vehicles are not fitted with connected box technology you will receive periodic requests for current mileage readings in order to improve the accuracy of the operational information provided to you, over the course of the lease.

    Also, where available, additional ‘vehicle health-related information’ will be utilised, to provide preventative maintenance and deliver even higher levels of servicing and maintenance.
