Peugeot has launched an updated Boxer panel van including the option of a new all-electric powertrain, an updated range of Euro 6.2-compliant diesel engines, two new trim levels and the latest safety equipment.
Conventionally-powered variants of the new Boxer are available to order in July, with the all-electric variant expected by the end of the year. The van is powered by turbocharged 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engines that produce 118bhp,138bhp or 163bhp and Start/Stop is standard across the range.
No technical details have been revealed at this stage but the electric version will share its foundations with the all-electric versions of the new Vauxhall Vivaro and Citroen Relay. New trim levels – Grip and Asphalt – are also available and the Asphalt package includes satellite navigation, air conditioning, USB charge socket, smartphone holder, colour reversing camera, rear parking sensors and lane departure warning system.
Other safety equipment includes blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert and trailer merge assist, which provides blind spot monitoring assistance, taking into account a trailer measuring between three and nine metres long. The Boxer also comes as standard with Peugeot Connect telematics software that can keep tabs on fuel consumption, monitor maintenance schedules, offer eco driving tips and track the van’s location in case of theft.
