Peugeot has launched its largest fully electric van, the e-Boxer, in the UK, with a range of up to 139 miles and prices starting from £49,335.
Soon to be available in selected showrooms, the e-Boxer continues Peugeot’s electrification strategy, with the brand set to offer an electric variant across its LCV range by the end of 2021.
The new e-Boxer joins the e-Expert in Peugeot’s e-LCV range, which will be completed later this year with the UK arrival of the e-Partner.
Peugeot’s e-Boxer is available exclusively in ‘Professional’ trim, and comes in three different body styles; Panel Van, Window Van, and Chassis Cab. The e-Boxer 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, there is no compromise on practicality, as the e-Boxer comes with a 15m3 maximum load volume, 1,150kg maximum payload and up to 1.87m internal width on Panel Van versions.
There are two battery capacities to choose from, depending on the size of the vehicle. L2 variants feature a 37kWh unit, while L3 and L4 versions come with a 70kWh battery. Both lithium-ion batteries are connected to a 90kW electric motor producing 350Nm of torque. With its all-electric powertrain, the e-Boxer is exempt from current congestion charge or Ultra Low Emissions Zone payments.
With the 37kWh battery, the e-Boxer can travel up to 73 miles on a single charge (WLTP), while the 70kWh battery increases the van’s range to 139 miles (WLTP). All e-Boxers 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.
All models come standard 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 37kWh variants and in 12 hours on 70kWh models. It also supports 50kW rapid charging, allowing a 0-80% charge in just one hour.
In the cab, the e-Boxer comes 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 customers buying an e-Boxer are also eligible for a six-month free subscription to BP Pulse, the UK’s largest public charging network.
Prices for the e-Boxer start from £49,335 (excluding VAT, after Plug-in Van Grant).
