Peugeot has announced full specification and prices for its e-Boxer van, the brand’s largest full electric van. The e-Boxer is available with two battery options and comes in three lengths. Prices start from £49,335 (excluding VAT, after PiVG).
Peugeot has given e-Boxer two battery capacities, depending on the size of the vehicle. The L2 length comes with a 37kWh unit, while L3 and L4 versions feature a 70kWh battery. Both lithium-ion batteries are connected to a 90kW electric motor producing 350Nm of torque.
The 37kWh battery is capable of up to 73-mile WLTP-approved range, while the 70kWh battery can manage 139 miles. All e-Boxer models come with a 22kW Mode 3 Type 2 charging cable that is compatible with single and three phase wallboxes. A full 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 an 80% charge in just one hour.
Drivers have the choice of three driving modes, 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.
Only one trim is available for the e-Boxer, ‘Professional’, but there is a choice of three body styles: panel van, window van, and chassis cab. With a choice of three wheelbases, up to 4.04m long, the 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 the panel van, and up to 1.87m internal width, again on the panel van.
The e-Boxer comes with the following equipment as standard: a five-inch capacitive colour touchscreen with DAB radio and satellite navigation, Bluetooth, USB socket and steering wheel mounted controls, air conditioning, rear parking sensors, heated and electric mirrors and an interior rear-view mirror with a display that allows information on the operation of the e-Boxer to be relayed to the driver.
Optional extras include speed limit recognition, active safety brake, distance alert system, lane departure warning system, reversing colour camera and blind spot monitoring system with rear traffic alert.
Prices start at £49,335 for the panel van L2H2 435 37kWh Auto Professional, rising to £59,750 for the panel van L4H2 440 70kWh Auto Professional. The chassis cab L3 435 70kWh Auto Professional costs £52,010. Finally, the chassis cab L3 440 70kWh Auto Professional is available for £55,280.
