Peugeot e-Boxer Review 2024

Peugeot e-Boxer At A Glance


+Improved range, reasonable value, large load bay, uprated payload

-Dated dynamics, crashy ride

The original Peugeot e-Boxer was a bit of a compromise – using an external conversion, it had a limited range of less than 80 miles and was way behind its rivals in terms of range and performance, its only real saving grace being that it was less expensive than some of its key rivals. But now there’s a much more serious offering on the scene with a vastly increased range making it more compelling. But is good enough? Read our Peugeot e-Boxer full review to find out.

The Peugeot e-Boxer is essentially an identical vehicle to the Citroen e-Relay, and Vauxhall Movano Electric, based on the large panel van body that was introduced way back in 2006 and has served as a stalwart in Peugeot’s LCV range since as the diesel-powered Peugeot Boxer.

It’s a spacious and competent van, but was never originally designed to be electric – the plug-in battery pack and motor having been developed by Peugeot’s parent company, Stellantis Group, to be integrated beneath the body. The next generation of large electric van from Stellantis will have a more integral, multi-brand approach as per the group’s smaller models, but for now the existing Peugeot Boxer soldiers on, albeit extensively revised inside and out as well as benefitting from a viable electric power option.

The latest Peugeot e-Boxer is powered by an electric motor producing 272PS and 400Nm of torque with a new 110kWh battery, meaning it can now cover up to 261 miles (WLTP) on a single charge and is equipped as standard with a three-phase 11kW onboard charger.

It can also be charged at 150kW from a DC rapid charger, enabling a 0-80% charge in 55 minutes.

Just one wheelbase is available at 4.04m, but with two body lengths (named L3 and L4, the latter with a larger rear overhang). A chassis cab version is also available. The panel vans are also offered as standard or high-roof versions, with a maximum load volume of 17 cubic metres.

Visually, it differs from its predecessor thanks to a new front bumper, redesigned rear-view mirrors and a new body-coloured grille, along with full LED front headlights and redesigned rear lights.

Inside, there’s a new multifunction steering wheel, dashboard, seat fabrics, and door panels, along with a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 3D Connected Navigation. Automatic climate control, a wireless phone charger and keyless entry and start provide further comfort and convenience. Additional practicality is provided by an optional 230V socket in the centre of the dashboard for powering electrical devices such as laptops, batteries and tablets up to 150 Watts.

It's a big step forward compared with the previous Peugeot e-Boxer, but there are areas in which the basic van still shows its age, and there’s no getting away from this. But it is good value and the electrified model is the standout Boxer in the range.
