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.
