Peugeot’s e-Boxer and Citroën’s e-Relay vans and chassis cabs are finally available to order, two years after first being seen at the CV Show.
Prices start at £49,335 after the PiVG has been applied. Offered exclusively in Professional and Enterprise trims, the panel van is available in L2, L3 and L4 body lengths, while a window van can be had in L4 only. The chassis cabs are offered in L3 length.
There are two battery packs on offer, a 37kWh is available in the smallest L2 panel van, while a 70kWh battery is offered in all other models. Both battery packs drive through a 90kW (120hp) electric motor to the front wheels. The 37kWh battery offers up to 73 miles of range (WLTP), while the 70kWh battery promises up to 139 miles.
There are three buttons on the central dash, instead of a conventional gear lever. The vans also come with a 5” touchscreen, DAB radio and sat-nav, air conditioning and rear parking sensors. Type 2 charging is standard, supporting inputs up to 22kW. Using a 7kW wallbox will take six or 12 hours depending on battery size. Both packs also support up to 50kW rapid charging, for a faster turnaround.
The L2H2 van has a maximum weight of 3.5-tonnes, with a payload of up to 1,070kg. The L3H2 at the same gross weight delivers a 740kg carrying capability. There is also an L3H2 offered with a 4.0-tonne gross weight, lifting the payload to 1,150kg. The larger L4H2 panel and window vans also have the higher gross weight. They can however still be driven by someone with a car licence, thanks to changes in legislation allowing up to 4.25-tonnes to be driven with a truck licence.
