Peugeot has unveiled the Boxer Electric van for the first time at the Commercial Vehicle Show, adding a zero-emission model to the Boxer LCV range.
This continues Peugeot’s electrification strategy, which will see all vehicles offered with an electrified variant by 2023.
The Boxer Electric models will be produced at the Sevel plant in Val di Sangro, Italy and converted by partner BD Auto.
The Peugeot Boxer Electric will be offered with two range options depending on wheelbase size. L1 and L2 models will get an all-electric range of 225 kilometres (141 miles), while the longer L3 and L4 models will manage 270 kilometres (169 miles) on a single charge.
The Peugeot Boxer Electric will do a maximum speed of 90 km/h (about 55 mph) and can carry a payload of 1,215kg. Charging will take 16 hours from a standard domestic socket, eight hours from a 7kW charger or seven hours from a 22kW source. Prices and on sale dates are yet to be announced.
According to Peugeot, in the medium van segment, the Peugeot Expert and Traveller will offer an electrified version in 2020.
In the C-van segment, Partner Electric has already existed since 1998. The new generation of the Partner Electric will be available by 2021.
