Peugeot brand overhaul! Professional van range facelifted for 2024, with new Partner, Expert, and Boxer on the way

Peugeot's parent company Stellantis has just announced the biggest facelift ever, with 12 nameplates overhauled at once.

As part of a complete range overhaul, Peugeot’s Stellantis parent company has updated 12 nameplates across its global professional range, including the 2024 Partner, Expert, and Boxer vans.

All three commercial offerings will get a facelift, cabin, and tech update as part of the upgrades, with a new connected services suite rolled out across not just the Peugeot professional range, but also the Fiat, Citroen, Opel and Vauxhall professional marques.

For Peugeot, the update will include a new face for each van, with a closed-in grille, new bumper designs, the new Peugeot logos, and the brand’s signature ‘three-claw’ LED DRL and headlight design.

The updated cabin across all models features a new 10-inch multimedia system with online connectivity features, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, an updated multi-function steering wheel, and a new hard wearing fabric material for the seats.

Other upgrades across all three vans include a higher-grade safety suite with upgraded auto emergency braking, a surround camera view, and adaptive cruise systems.

The city-sized Partner van moves to Peugeot’s 'second-generation' electric drivetrain for its hero e-Partner zero-emissions variant, with a 100kW/270Nm electric motor, and upgraded regen braking system which can take into account the van’s current weight.

Driving range is touted to be 330km from the single 50kW battery variant, with charging in 30 minutes from a 100kW DC fast-charger, or five hours from a 11kW AC wallbox. A heat pump has also been added for upgraded efficiency.

The e-Partner receives an upgraded regen braking system.

Meanwhile, combustion variants will carry over the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine currently available in Australia, with an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual.

Next up, the mid-size Expert will also receive the brand’s new electric drivetrain, which includes a 100kW/260Nm front-mounted motor and two battery options, either a 50kW version which offers a projected 224km driving range, or a 75kW version which offers a 350km driving range (with WLTP numbers yet to be confirmed).

The E-Expert can accept charge at up to 100kW on DC for a 38 minute charging time for the 50kW battery, or a 45 minute charging time for the 75kW battery, while on the slower AC charging standard, it can accept up to 11kW, for a charging time in four hours and 50 minutes.

Combustion versions will carryover the same 110kW/370Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine currently offered in Australia, with either the eight-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual gearbox.

Finally, the large Boxer receives a less significant facelift but the most significant electric powertrain of the trio, with a 200kW/400Nm electric motor and a projected driving range of up to 420km from its huge 110kWh battery.

The 2024 Partner, Expert, and Boxer vans will get a facelift, cabin, and tech update.

Charging times are 55 minutes on a DC charger at a max of 150kW, or 11 hours and 45 minutes on an 11kW AC unit.

The updated boxer will also carry over its 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine in combustion variants (121kW/310Nm), although it will finally add an eight-speed automatic transmission option to run alongside the six-speed manual.

The Boxer upgrades also feature a new electric park brake and power steering system, and for the first time, keyless entry, a wireless phone charger and a digital instrument cluster.

In a statement to CarsGuide, a Peugeot Australia representative said the e-Expert would arrive with the facelift in 2024, and the e-Partner updates would also arrive in due course. The e-Boxer, meanwhile, is the only model yet to be confirmed for an Australian launch, although the brand says it remains “under consideration” for the time being.

Peugeot’s passenger car range is also in the process of being overhauled, with the e-208 electric hatch, and 408 coupe SUV set to arrive alongside major facelifts to the 2008 small SUV and 508 sedan and wagon.
