Peugeot has launched the brand’s largest fully electric Light Commercial Vehicle in the UK, the new e-Boxer van.
The new e-Boxer continues Peugeot’s electrification strategy, with the brand set to offer an electric variant across its entire LCV range by the end of 2021.
It is available exclusively in ‘Professional’ trim and comes in three different body styles: Panel Van, Window Van, and Chassis Cab. The Peugeot also comes in three lengths: L2 (5,413mm), L3 (5,998mm) and L4 (6,363mm). With the battery located underneath the floor of the vehicle, it has a 15m3 maximum load volume, 1,150kg maximum payload and up to 1.87m internal width on Panel Van versions.
The new electric van comes with a choice of two battery capacities, depending on the size of the vehicle. L2 variants feature a 37kWh unit, while L3 and L4 versions come with a larger, 70kWh battery. Both lithium-ion batteries are connected to a 90kW electric motor producing 350Nm of torque.
With the 37kWh battery, the e-Boxer is capable of travelling up to 73 miles on a single charge (WLTP), while the 70kWh battery increases the van’s range to 139 miles (WLTP).
All e-Boxer models come as standard with a 22kW Mode 3 Type 2 Charging Cable that is compatible with both single and three-phase wallboxes. A full charge using a 7.4kW single-phase wallbox can be achieved in six hours on 37kWh variants and in 12 hours on 70kWh models. The e-Boxer also supports 50kW rapid charging, allowing a 0-80% charge in just one hour.
Also, as standard it is equipped with a 5-inch capacitive colour touchscreen, Bluetooth, DAB radio and satellite navigation, while the interior rear-view mirror features a display that relays key vehicle information to the driver.
All 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.
Prices for the new Peugeot e-Boxer start from £49,335 (excluding VAT, after Plug-in Van Grant).
