The Peugeot Boxer – A Quick Introduction
Although Peugeot had a troubled past, the car manufacturer is now doing exceptionally well, with other Peugeot light commercial vehicles winning automotive awards in the past few years.
The Boxer van is manufactured in Italy and France as a joint venture with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Peugeot has many years of experience in the light commercial vehicle market – their first commercial vehicle was produced in 1895, and their first vans went on sale in 1950.
Since then, Peugeot has sold more than 1 million Boxer vans.
The Boxer van at a glance
- As with all new Peugeot vehicles, the Boxer underwent rigorous testing before release to the public. The Boxer van had more than four million kilometres of testing.
- There are two variations of the van: the L2H1 or the L4H2. These have a gross vehicle mass of 3,300 and 4,005 respectively.
- The van can be converted into a taxi with 19 seats, a chassis cab, an ambulance, or it can be used as a panel van.
The Exterior of the Peugeot Boxer
The 2020 Peugeot Boxer as well as the newer 2022 Peugeot e-Boxer van may be a large and best van, but it has a sleek brand identity associated with other Peugeot cars. The most characteristic external feature is the wide grille loved by many Peugeot enthusiasts.
Aside from the stylish exterior, the Boxer is designed for heavy work. In order to maximise the loading space inside the vehicle, the design team has taken certain steps to not waste any space and it can be used in delivery business.
The wheel arches are small to free up space inside, while the van has a decent ground clearance. There is plenty of load space with a width of 1.4 metres at the wheel arch. The loading sill is low enough at 50,3 cm to easily load heavy objects.
Loads are also easy to place into and remove from the van because of the 96-degree rear door opening, which can be even further increased up to 180 degrees with a folding strap.
The van comes with a sliding side door, and as an optional extra you can add another sliding door on the other side of the van.
