Peugeot slashes price of its other electric car by $13,000

After a $25,000 cut to its electric BYD SUV-competitor, Peugeot has slashed the price of its electric van by around $13,000.

Australia’s most affordable new electric van has had its price slashed by around $13,000 – to $49,990 drive-away – ahead of the expected arrival of a facelifted model.

A month since run-out stock of the Peugeot e-2008 electric SUV sold out nine days after a $25,000 price cut, Peugeot has now slashed the RRP of its other electric vehicle in showrooms, the e-Partner city van.

Until June 30, the e-Partner is available for $49,990 drive-away – compared to its usual RRP of $59,990, plus about $3000 worth of on-road costs, depending on the state or territory of registration.

The offer is said to apply to new or demonstrator Model Year 2023 (MY23) examples – which is still the current iteration, even though it is mid-2024 – ordered and delivered between 1 June and 30 June 2024.

The substantial price reduction means the gap between equivalent petrol and electric Peugeot Partner vans has closed to about $5000.

In New South Wales, a Peugeot Partner Pro Long petrol automatic – on which the e-Partner sold locally is based – is listed for $45,247 drive-away on the company’s website.

Peugeot may be clearing stock of the e-Partner to prepare for a facelifted model, which has been unveiled in Europe, but is yet to be given an arrival date for Australia.

Since the price cut for the e-2008 last month, Peugeot has been joined by a slew of other car makers in cutting electric vehicle prices, from Nissan and Renault at the more affordable end of the market – to the circa-$200,000Lotus Eletre.
