Although the Bipper is the smallest van in Peugeot’s commercial vehicle line up, it still boasts one of the largest load spaces (up to 590kg) available in a vehicle of its size, plus there’s plenty of useful storage room on board too. It’s compact enough to manoeuvre around the smallest sites, nippy around town and economical to run – so good for your business’s bottom line. Nominated Best Light Van in the 2014 Fleet World Honours, the Bipper has a 1.3 litre diesel engine and comes with a choice of three trim levels. Prices start at just over £10,215.
Larger than its sibling, the Bipper, the Peugeot Partner lives up to its name – it’s your ideal business partner, perfect for anyone in need of an agile, efficient and high-tech vehicle. Bursting with technology, it features a multifunction colour touchscreen (with USB and Bluetooth connectivity), which also displays images linked to the van’s rear parking camera. The Partner’s payload is a maximum 850kg and with the choice of five 1.6 litre petrol and diesel ultra-efficient engines there’s plenty of power, even when it’s loaded to the gunnels at the beginning of a busy day. Prices start at just £11,345.
If your business wants to slash its carbon footprint and eliminate fuel bills from the bottom line, then the Partner Electric is for you. With all the benefits of its conventionally fuelled sibling, it has one of the best load volumes in its segment, coupled with a stylish exterior, a versatile interior and a whole host of on-board technology. Billed ‘a joy to drive’ by businessvans.co.uk, the Partner Electric has a range of 106 miles on a full charge (it can be rapid-charged to 85% in just under 35 minutes) and a top speed of 68mph. Prices start at less than £22,000 (including the battery) but there’s an additional 20% Government-funded subsidy to consider.
The Boxer is a large panel van with an enviable heritage. Yet it continues to throw down the gauntlet to its competitors. It’s robust and practical and it now has a higher specification than ever before. There’s a choice of six body types – including different lengths and heights – plus there are five diesel engines to pick from (four 2.2 litre options and a 3.0 litre alternative). It stacks up price-wise too for savvy business owners, thanks to low maintenance costs and increased service intervals (every 30,000 miles or two years). Inside it has a payload of up to 1900kg, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a touchscreen (with integrated sat nav on the Professional model). Price Start from £16,579.
Choose the new mid-size Expert van and there’s a configuration to suit every business need. You can opt for a panel, crew or combi van and there’s the choice of a platform cab too.
