Overview


Peugeot is part of the Netherlands based Stellantis N.V., which was formed by the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (Italian/ American) and Groupe PSA (French). You may not be familiar with these names, but the automotive brands in the portfolio would be well known to most consumers. These include: Maserati, Opel, Vauxhall, Jeep, FIAT, Alfa Romeo etc.

Peugeot was founded in 1810 in Eastern France (Sochaux), and has a rich heritage in motor racing and the broader automotive sector. Peugeot has won many awards for its passenger cars, to include, six European Car of the Year awards. As part of the broader Groupe PSA, Peugeot is very committed to the electric vehicle (EV) sector. The company’s portfolio of electric vans include:

Peugeot e-Boxer Panel Van


Though the Peugeot e-Boxer electric van is available in two EV battery sizes (37 kW/ 75 kWh), this article primarily focuses on the larger 75 kWh onboard EV battery. The manufacturer claims a zero-tailpipe emission electric range up to 154 miles (WLTP) for the 75 kWh battery (for the 37 kWh the electric range is up to 73 miles WLTP).

Of course, the real-world electric range will be lower, impacted by a number of factors, to include: payload, driving profile, weather conditions, temperature, onboard services used etc. Expect a real-world e-range closer to 130 miles for the larger battery option. Though this pure electric range is not class-leading, it is nevertheless useful.

The manufacturer offers DC charging up to 50 kW DC. A bit disappointing as a number of other electric vans currently available in the market offer up to 100 kW DC as standard. Charging the electric van at 50 kW DC, the 75 kWh EV battery can achieve 80% charge in 60 minutes. At 100 kW DC, one could have expected the charging time to be 30 minutes!

Having said that, it is encouraging to note that Peugeot offers AC charging compatibility up to 22 kW AC, as standard. With the three-phase (22 kW) onboard AC charger, the 75 kWh EV battery can be fully charged in 5 hours using a dedicated 3-phase EV charger. Charging at 7.4 kW (single-phase) will take longer (12 hours).

For those charging the electric van at home, we at e-zoomed recommend charging overnight, when the electricity tariff rates are lower. We also encourage the use of solar and battery storage to mitigate the risk of escalating energy prices. EV chargers, like myenergi zappi offer solar compatibility and can be acquired via e-zoomed. We offer a high quality supply and installation service for homes and businesses.

Though the e-van can be charged using a standard 3-PIN domestic plug, we at e-zoomed discourage using a domestic plug to charge an electric vehicle. In any case, we also encourage a ‘topping up’ approach to charging an electric vehicle. This is beneficial for the long-term maintenance of the onboard EV battery and of course, EV charging times are shorter. Peugeot offers a 8 years or 100,000 miles warranty.

In terms of performance, the front-wheel drive (FWD) Peugeot e-Boxer panel van delivers a maximum power up to 120 hp and 350 Nm torque. The top speed is 75 mph. The electric vehicle can achieve 0-60 mph in 11.2 seconds. The electric van also incorporates regenerative braking to improve the efficiency of the EV and increase the electric range.

The electric van is available in two lengths (L3H2/ L4H2), and offers decent cargo volume: 13m3 and 15m3 respectively. The payload of the electric commercial van is up to 690 kg. The EV offers 3 seats. Standard equipment includes: 7″ colour touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, electronic stability control, emergency braking assistance, cruise control with variable speed limiter, 1C Smart Tachograph and speed Limiter 56 mph and more!

The Peugeot e-Boxer is eligible for the UK government plug-in van grant for the ‘large vans’ category. These vehicles are between 2,500kg and 4,250kg gross vehicle weight, have CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and can travel at least 96km (60 miles) without any emissions at all. The grant will pay for 35% of the purchase price for these vehicles, up to a maximum of £5,000.
