Peugeot's new Partner Tepee will replace the current Partner Combi which has sold over 17,000 units since its introduction in August 2001.  It will become the second model in Peugeot's new Tepee range which was launched with the introduction of the Expert Tepee back in March 2007.

Three Partner Tepee versions will be available, the standard Urban version, the S and an Outdoor version aimed at customers who enjoy exploring locations off the beaten track.

Sharing the same length as a typical family hatchback, but with a great deal more interior space, adaptability and greater rear accessibility thanks to the two sliding side doors, the Partner Tepee is the ideal family car.

The Partner Tepee will be manufactured in Vigo (Spain) on Peugeot's No 2 platform, which it shares with the Peugeot 308 and offers unrivalled space and modularity, combined with a modern stylish design.
