Peugeot updates Boxer and adds all-electric version

514ac3e2-b625-4458-8ba8-09624e53d3ae

Details of the latest version of the new Peugeot Boxer, which is used as a base vehicle for motorhomes built by a number of motorhome manufacturers including Elddis and Bailey, have been revealed.

The new version gains a new diesel engine engine that conforms to the highest emission regulations – called Euro 6.2 – that come into force across Europe in September.

The new Boxer engine range is based on a new 2.2-litre BlueHDi power unit, which replaces the outgoing 2.0L BlueHDi unit. The new engine is available with three power outputs, all offering more power: 120hp (+10hp) with 300Nm of torque, 140hp (+10hp) with 340Nm of torque and 165hp (+5hp) with 370Nm of torque (+20Nm). All are equipped with Stop & Start technology as standard.

Peugeot has also added new equipment, and a new Asphalt range, which comes as standard with satellite-navigation, Lane Departure Warning System, distance alert system, air-conditioning, colour reversing camera, rear parking sensors and a ‘comfort’ seat pack.

Safety is further enhanced with the Blind Spot Monitoring System with Rear Traffic Alert, which warns of a vehicle in the vehicles’ blind spot with an illuminated LED in the left or right mirror.

Peugeot has also revealed its Boxer Electric for the first time. The Boxer Electric is part of Peugeot’s electrification strategy, which will see all vehicles offered with an electrified variant by 2023.

The electric model will be produced at the Sevel plant in Italy, with conversions to all-electric power by BD Auto.
