Peugeot Boxer Dropside

Peugeot has launched a new programme dubbed Built for Business and offering six LCV conversions.

Each of the six is based on the Peugeot Boxer 335 chassis, powered by the 2.0-litre 160hp diesel engine with six-speed manual transmission, and on offer are Tipper, Dropside, Luton, Low-Floor Luton, Box Body and Curtainside formats.

Each vehicle’s bodywork includes bolted construction for ease of maintenance, while parts are made from steel and aluminium to ensure they remain robust and offer the most effective payload capacity.

All of the conversions carry the same warranty as on the base vehicle and conform to either European Whole Vehicle Type Approval or National Small Series Type Approval regulations They can be ordered from any Peugeot dealer or business centre.

Payload capacities range up to 1,222kg on the tipper, 1,441kg on the dropside, 1,147kg on the Luton, 965kg on the Curtainside, 1,051kg on the Box van and 1,050kg with the low-floor Luton.

Low-floor Luton variants also offer the option of a high-volume 22 cubic metre body, the largest available in the Boxer Built for Business range.

The conversions are all supplied with the same standard equipment list as the base vehicle – this includes air conditioning, an uprated battery and revised dual-leaf rear suspension with anti-roll bar.

PSA Group head of national fleets Richard Abbott guarantees quick delivery, excellent payload and competitive prices from the New conversion range. “With the launch of Built for Business light CV conversions, Peugeot is providing certainty for customers that they are buying a vehicle where all parts of the conversion are built to the same exacting standard as the base vehicle”,  he says.
