The larger battery is available across all e-Boxer variants. The new 75kWh battery is mated with an electric motor producing 122bhp and 350Nm of torque.
The new 75kWh e-Boxer also has a price reduction of £8,770 on the 4 tonne versions. Peugeot says that this is possible due to economies made in the manufacturing process. This means that prices for the e-Boxer 440 Electric 75kWh auto Professional now start from £66,535 before the UK Government’s Plug in Vehicle Grant (PiVG), which provides further savings of up to £5,000 across all versions of the Peugeot e-Boxer.
Savings are also available on the 75kWh Peugeot e-Boxer Window van variant.
As with all Peugeot electric vans, the e-Boxer has exactly the same volume and practicality compared with diesel versions.
The e-Boxer van also offers lower running costs than the diesel versions – as well as being better to drive.
The Peugeot e-Boxer can be charged from 0-80% in one hour when using a 50kW rapid charger.
All Peugeot's electric vans can drive into emission restriction zones, as well as the London Congestion Charge Zone, without any charges.
The Government PiVG is 35% of the Base Vehicle Price (including VAT) and including any discounts applied up to a maximum of £5,000 on all e-Boxer versions. See more details at www.gov.uk/plug-in-car-van-grants.
The unfortunate truth for most however, is that outright purchase of an electric van is still too dear to justify to the accountant. Even with the plug-in grant. At DriveElectric, we offer a range of vans at affordable price points for every business.
