Peugeots largest van has become the latest commercial vehicle in their range to be fully electrified, the new e-Boxer and continues the brands commitment to offer an electric variant across its entire LCV range by the end of 2021. Peugeot say it will be “will soon to be available in selected showrooms”, which has a few people guessing by what is meant by that.
The new e-Boxer Is the second of the three van range, with the e-Expert the first to be launched and later in this year the arrival of the new e-Partner will complete the set. PEUGEOT is set to offer an electrified variant across its entire range of passenger and commercial vehicles by 2025, offering fleets and business users a choice of vans to meet all their requirements.
New Peugeot e-Boxer Batteries
The new Peugeot e-Boxer 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 its all-electric powertrain, the e-Boxer is exempt from current congestion charge or Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) payments.
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 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.
All e-Boxers come 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.
Peugeot e-Boxer Trim Level
The Peugeot e-Boxer is available exclusively in ‘Professional’ trim, and comes in three different body styles; Panel Van, Window Van, and Chassis cab and 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.
It comes standard 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.
