PSA has announced details of the updated Peugeot Boxer and Citroën Relay vans, which receive new variants and engines this summer ahead of the arrival of electric versions later this year.
On sale from early July, the updated ranges see the addition of Worker and Driver versions for the Relay (Jumpy in Europe) while the Boxer gets Grip and Asphalt versions – following hot on the heels of their addition to the Expert and Dispatch line-ups.
The Worker/Grip trims, which are aimed at drivers using difficult-to-access-sites, bring additions including underbody protection, front and rear mud flaps as well as Grip Control with Hill Descent Control and multi-season tyres.
Meanwhile the Driver/Asphalt models bring increased focus on driver comfort and functionality with features such as sat nav, reversing camera, lane departure warning system and automatic headlamps.
Operators can also now opt for new equipment, including a blind spot monitoring system and rear traffic alert, while all models now come as standard with a telematics box for Free2Move Connect Fleet Services, including fuel consumption monitoring, vehicle tracking in the event of theft, vehicle tracking for fleets, maintenance monitoring and eco-driving.
Engine line-up sees the the addition of a new Euro 6d-Temp-compliant 2.2-litre BlueHDi engine, which replaces the outgoing 2.0 BlueHDi unit and is available in three variants, all offering extra power and torque.
- 2.2-litre BlueHDi 120hp (+ 10hp) with 300Nm of torque
- 2.2-litre BlueHDi 140hp (+ 10hp) with 340Nm of torque
- 2.2-litre BlueHDi 165hp (+ 5hp) with 370Nm of torque (+20Nm)
All engines are equipped with Stop & Start technology as standard and are being introduced ahead of the rival of electric variants. As announced at the 2019 CV Show, the models will be offered with two battery options that bring a range of 141 miles (225km) on the NEDC cycle for the length L1 and L2, and 169 miles (270km) based on NEDC cycle for the lengths L3 and L4. The vehicles are produced at the Sevel factory in Val di Sangro (Atessa, Italy) and converted by the BD OTO partner, and form part of PSA’s commitment to have plug-in hybrid or electric versions of all new models starting from this year, with electrified variants of each model available by 2025.
