New Peugeot e-Boxer full-size van with 70kWh battery joins growing fold of electric vans from PSA
This is the Peugeot e-Boxer, a fully electric version of the French firm’s full size van. Available in four lengths and three heights, it’s offered with two battery options, enabling a range of up to 211 miles on a single charge.
Base versions of the van in L1 and L2 lengths (the two smallest wheelbases) are only available with a 37kWh battery pack enabling a maximum range of 124 miles between charges. However, larger versions are fitted with a 70kWh battery, which Peugeot claims should be good for up to 211 miles..

A 120bhp electric motor is powered by the battery, but top speed is limited to 68mph – and is reduced to 56mph for four-tonne versions of the van.
Charging is compatible with type 2 sockets and combo CCS 4, while the van is equipped with a standard on-board charger compatible with single-phase 7kW and three-phase 22kW charging. From a 50kW public charger, expect an 80 per cent recharge in an hour.
The battery pack is integrated into the van’s floor, and Peugeot claims that the e-Boxer is just as spacious as diesel versions across its various lengths and roof heights. Alongside van variants, the e-Boxer is also offered in single and double-cab chassis versions, plus a cab floor model.
The e-Boxer is marked by blue exterior badging, while inside the gear stick has been replaced with three buttons: drive, neutral and reverse. A specific rear-view mirror with an integrated driver information display for battery charge and range readouts has also been added.
Standard equipment includes a DAB radio with a five inch colour display and bluetooth, automatic lights and wipers, heated wing mirrors, rear parking sensors and air conditioning. Available optionally will be a nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a reversing camera, automatic high-beam lights, blind spot monitoring, cruise control and hill descent control.
Prices have not yet been revealed, but Peugeot has confirmed that the e-Boxer will be on sale by the end of 2020.
