Peugeot has opened reservations for the new e-Boxer van, the brand’s largest full electric Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV). Available to order now, the Peugeot e-Boxer is available with two battery options and comes in three lengths to suit a variety of needs for both business and private users. Prices for the new Peugeot e-Boxer start from £49,335 (excluding VAT, after PiVG).
The Peugeot e-Boxer comes with a choice of two battery capacities depending on size of the vehicle. The L2 length comes with a 37kWh unit, while L3 and L4 versions feature a larger, 70kWh battery. Both lithium-ion batteries are connected to a 90kW electric motor producing 350Nm of torque.
The Peugeot e-Boxer will arrive on UK roads as Peugeot continues its electrification strategy, and is set to offer an electrified variant across its entire range by 2025, and an electric variant across its LCV range by the end of this year.
The 37kWh battery is capable of up to 73-mile WLTP-approved range, while the 70kWh battery increases the range of the Peugeot e-Boxer to 139-miles. All Peugeot e-Boxer models come with a 22kW Mode 3 Type 2 Charging Cable that is compatible with both single and three phase wallboxes. A full 0-100% charge using a 7.4kW single phase wallbox can be achieved in six hours on the 37kWh battery, and 12 hours on the 70kWh battery. The e-Boxer also supports 50kW rapid charging, allowing a 0-80% charge in just one hour.
Drivers have the choice of switching between three driving modes, each selected by pushing one of three buttons marked D (Drive), N (Neutral) and R (Reverse), which replace the conventional gear lever. To maximise vehicle range, the e-Boxer features regenerative braking technology that converts the kinetic energy usually lost during braking into electricity for the battery, providing more electric miles of range.
The Peugeot e-Boxer is available exclusively in ‘Professional’ trim, and comes in three different body styles to suit a variety of needs; Panel Van, Window Van, and Chassis Cab. With a choice of three wheelbases, up to 4.04m long, the Peugeot e-Boxer comes in three lengths – L2, L3, and L4. With the battery located underneath the floor of the vehicle, there is no compromise to practicality, as the e-Boxer comes with a 15m3 maximum load volume, 1,150kg maximum payload on Panel Van, and up to 1.87m internal width on Panel Van versions.
With its all-electric powertrain, the Peugeot e-Boxer is exempt from current congestion charge or Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) payments, providing a further cost incentive to businesses and fleets.
The new Peugeot e-Boxer comes standard with the following equipment:
To allow the new Peugeot e-Boxer to stand out on the road, there are ‘e’ badges positioned on the front wings, while an ‘e-Boxer’ badge can be found at the rear of the vehicle.
Access to the electric charge point is located on the left front wing of the van. The Peugeot e-Boxer comes with a range of colour options; Ice White, Dragoon Blue, Volcano Red, Graphite Grey, Azzuro Blue and Golden White.
All Peugeot customers buying a new full electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle are eligible for a 6-month free subscription to BP Pulse – the UK’s largest public charging network.
All Peugeot e-Boxer vehicles come with a certificate of battery capacity after each service to give owners peace of mind, with the lithium-ion battery guaranteed by an eight-year/100,000-miles warranty for 70% of its original charge capacity. Peugeot is also able to combine service contracts and additional features such as roadside assistance under a single finance package to help simplify payments.
