Available through any Peugeot dealer or Business Centre, the Built for Business range is provided across the board with a warranty to match the base vehicle and conforms to either European Whole Vehicle Type Approval or National Small Series Type Approval regulations.

All Boxer conversions feature the 2.0 BlueHDi 160 S&S engine with six-speed manual transmission and bring standard kit including air con, an uprated battery and revised dual-leaf rear suspension with anti-roll bar.

Tipper variants are based on the Boxer 335 L2 single cab and L3 crew cab models and offer payloads of up to 1,222kg. Bodywork features include bolted construction for ease of maintenance, while parts are made from steel and aluminium to provide robust construction and optimum payload.

The Dropside range is built to the same standards as the Tipper and also features steel and aluminium construction. Three variants will be available, based on the Boxer 335 L2 Single Cab, L3 Single Cab and L3 Crew Cab, and offering payloads up to 1,441kg.

The Luton range is available with either the Boxer 335 L3 or L4 Single Cab. All bodies feature an aerodynamically designed pod above the Boxer cab, developed to reduce air drag while providing additional storage space in the body.

The body panels are constructed from high-quality GRP for optimum strength, built on a robust galvanised steel frame. Alternatively, lightweight aluminium frames will provide up to 80kg of additional payload.

Standard equipment includes a 500kg capacity column tail lift, complete with dual controls to enable operation from inside or outside the vehicle.

The Curtainside body is available with either the Boxer 335 L3 or L4 Single Cab and provides a maximum payload of up to 965kg (with a 17m3 volume) or a maximum volume of 20m3 with a 879kg payload. This enables up to six Euro-pallets to be carried. The range also benefits from an aerodynamic Luton pod over the cab as well as easy access to the load area from either side. Alternatively, fully opening barn doors provide rear access.

The Box body is available with either the Boxer 335 L3 or L4 single cab and shares many of its construction features with the Luton and Curtainside, such as base and rear frame construction in galvanised steel, with a lightweight option for aluminium, which can increase payload by up to 80kg. The body provides a load volume of up to 20m3 and payloads up to 1,051kg.

The rear closure is a lightweight roller shutter door with locking handle. Load handling equipment includes a standard 500kg capacity column tail lift and the Box body is also available with dual controls.

The Low Floor Luton provides the option of a high-volume 22m3 Luton body, the largest available in the Boxer Built for Business range. It also provides over a tonne of payload with up to 1,050kg available.

Body panels are made from high-quality 14mm GRP to provide strength and maximise payload, while the floor is made from non-slip birch plywood. Payload can be increased by around 120kg by opting for lightweight body panels. The front bulkhead is protected from damage by an alloy kick strip.

Like the standard Luton body, the storage space above the cab is provided by an aerodynamic pod.
