Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Buying an electric van is not cheap, and while the Peugeot e-Boxer is a third-party conversion done to a lesser standard than a factory option, it’s pricing is not for the faint-hearted. The starting price is slightly lower than for the Maxus E Deliver 9 and Mercedes eSprinter but significantly more than the entry-level Ford E-Transit

Running costs will depend on how you charge the van, and the e-Boxer is capable of taking a 50kW DC rapid charge. On a rapid charger, the battery level will top up from 0-80% in an hour, while a conventional 7kW home wall box will take around six hours to charge the smaller battery pack and 12 hours for the larger battery.

Overview

The e-Boxer neatly completes the full electrification of the Peugeot van range, but it's not up to the standard of the smaller vans. The third-party conversion has created an electric van that's usable enough, but one that doesn’t have the quality or appeal of factory-made rivals.

  • Choice of body sizes
  • Reasonable payloads and volume
  • Sluggish performance from a standing start
  • Noisier than rivals
  • Feels very cobbled together
