Peugeot Boxer Electric: The future of light commercial vehicles
Peugeot has revealed the Boxer Electric at the Commercial Vehicle Show.
Shown as part of a wider LCV electrification offensive from Groupe PSA, which has also seen Citroen reveal the Relay Electric, this is the Boxer Electric’s first public appearance.
The Peugeot Boxer Electric and Citroen Relay Electric large vans will be offered with two levels of autonomy depending on the version: 141 miles on NEDC cycle for the length L1 and L2, and 169 miles on NEDC cycle for the lengths L3 and L4.
One in four LCVs currently sold in the UK are from Groupe PSA, with the firm aiming to offer 100% of its range with an electrified version by 2023.

Philippe Narbeburu, senior vice-president, Light Commercial Vehicles Groupe PSA Business Unit, said: "In line with our ‘Push to Pass’ strategic plan, we are continuing to electrify our entire range. This new offer is a major competitive advantage for our brands in a very competitive LCV segment.
“This is an opportunity to strengthen our leadership in Europe by meeting the new needs of zero-emission driving without giving up the useful services related to the demanding uses of our professional customers."
