A new Peugeot Boxer panel van has been launched. Revisions for 2019 include the option of a new all-electric powertrain, an updated range of Euro 6.2-compliant diesel engines, two new trim levels and a host of fresh safety equipment. Conventionally-powered versions of the new Boxer will be available to order in July, with the all-electric variant expected by the end of the year.

The new Peugeot Boxer is powered by a turbocharged 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. It’s available in three states of tune, with the least potent option producing 118bhp and 300Nm of torque. Mid-range models have 138bhp and 340Nm of torque, while the range topping version has 163bhp and 370Nm of torque. Start/Stop is standard across the range.

While Peugeot has confirmed that an all-electric version is coming, no technical specifications have been outlined, but it will share its underpinnings with the all-electric version of the new Vauxhall Vivaro and a newly facelifted, all-electric version of the Citroen Relay, which claims a maximum range of 169 miles under old NEDC rules.

Two new trim levels are also available as well; ‘Grip’ and ‘Asphalt.’ The first offers a range of additional equipment designed to carry heavy loads over difficult terrain and adds Peugeot’s Grip Control system with Hill Ascent and Descent control, all-season tyres, front and rear mud flaps, reinforced suspension and underbody protection panels.

Peugeot claims its ‘Asphalt’ package has been designed for professionals who spend a lot of time in their vans. It adds a range of comfort and safety features, including satellite navigation, air conditioning, a USB charge socket, a smartphone holder, a colour reversing camera, rear parking sensors and lane departure warning system.

Other safety equipment available on the new Boxer includes blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert (which can detect vehicles up to 50 metres either side of the vehicle when reversing) and ‘trailer merge assist,’ which provides blind spot monitoring assistance, taking into account a trailer measuring between three and nine metres long.

Elsewhere, the new Peugeot Boxer now comes as standard with ‘Peugeot Connect’ telematics software. The system can monitor the van’s fuel consumption, keep tabs on its maintenance schedule, offer eco driving tips and track the van’s location in case of theft.
