Peugeot Partner Tepee Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle
The Peugeot Partner Tepee is the UK's best selling wheelchair accessible vehicle, and the most popular option on the Motability Scheme.
It offers fantastic amounts of space and levels of accessibility for wheelchair and able-bodied passengers with a variety of adaptations available from Motability approved converters.
The most popular conversion is from Allied Mobility called the Peugeot Horizon, which is also the conversion that most our Partner Tepee stock is already configured to.
Peugeot Horizon from Allied Mobility
The Peugeot Horizon conversion includes the Tepee's original rear seating with a folding double rear passenger seat. The 60:40 split means that there is still one passenger seat in the back next to the wheelchair or scooter user, making a total of three passengers (including the driver) plus the disabled passenger.
As part of the conversion, the Peugeot Horizon adds an EasyGlide wheelchair ramp which pulls out from the rear floor of the Partner Tepee onto the ground. Once the wheelchair or scooter user is in the vehicle, the ramp can either be folded upwards behnd the disabled passenger or folded back into the boot floor.
How Much Space Will You Have?
The Partner Tepee is an MPV that has already been converted from the standard van configuration.
In its form as a passenger vehicle it has five seats as standard; however, the flexible cabin space can be configured to suit the needs of the user. As a WAV, it still allows a passenger in the rear to sit alongside a wheelchair user, only reducing the capacity by one.
To accommodate a wheelchair or scooter user, the Tepee Space adds a ramp which has been designed to be stowed flat to the vehicle floor when not in use which allows you to take full advantage of the huge luggage area offered.
How good is the accesibility?
Using the large tailgate which is ideally hinged at the top, wheelchair and scooter users can access the Partner Tepee WAV to the rear of the vehicle via a ramp.
The EasyGlide ramp provides an ultra-strong and low gradient path into the lowered floor to make getting in and out of the vehicle a simple task! In addition, most of the Partner Tepee WAVs we source also come with an electric winch which is particularly useful for manual wheelchairs and takes away virtually all effort.
The Partner's Safety Credentials
Once inside the Partner Tepee WAV, the wheelchair passenger feels safe as their wheelchair is secured to the vehicle floor using the high quality, four-point wheelchair restraints.
The wheelchair passenger, like other passengers, also has complete peace of mind with full and lap diagonal seatbelts which are all tested to meet the highest automotive and accessibility standards.
Other notable features for tjourney safety included as standard are ABS, brake assist and passenger and driver's airbags.
What are Peugoet Partners like to drive?
Peugeot’s award-winning range of diesel engines deliver a responsive and enjoyable driving experience with a choice of manual and automatic transmissions available.
The Partner Tepee combines practicality with reliability to offer real value for money, especially when it comes to fuel consumption. The most frugal 1.6 BlueHDi diesel engine is able to reach combined efficiency figures up to 68.9mpg.
In terms of design, the large windscreen and door mirrors give you superb all-round vision which means, overall, the Partner Tepee is a fantastic compact WAV that offers versatility and efficiency in an affordable package.
