Built for Business is the new light commercial vehicle conversion programme from Peugeot providing a range of “Off the shelf” popular conversions carrying a warranty that matches the base vehicle. Models that will launch the Built for Business range include:
- Box Body
- Low-Floor Luton
Of which the first three listed above are being built by JC Payne.
All conversions will be based on the Peugeot Boxer 335 chassis, powered by the 2.0 BlueHDi 160 S&S engine with six-speed manual transmission. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, an uprated battery and revised dual-leaf rear suspension with anti-roll bar.
Peugeot Built for Business conversions conform to either European Whole Vehicle Type Approval or National Small Series Type Approval regulations and can be ordered from any Peugeot Dealer or Business Centre. All models will be included in the Peugeot Boxer product guide.
The Peugeot Boxer Built for Business Luton range is available with either the Boxer 335 L3 or L4 Single Cab. All Built for Business Luton bodies feature an aerodynamically designed pod above the Boxer cab, reducing 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 80kgs of additional payload.
Both the front bulkhead and side panels are fitted with internal kick strips to protect against damage. The interior features both load locking and tie-rail tracks for a range of load restraint options. Additional rows and layouts are available. The rear closure features a lightweight roller shutter door with locking handle.
Standard equipment for the Built for Business Luton includes a 500kg capacity column tail lift, complete with dual controls to enable operation from inside or outside the vehicle. An interior light is provided, while external marker lights are also standard.
The Peugeot Boxer Built for Business Curtainside also benefits from an aerodynamic Luton pod over the cab. The Curtainside body provides easy access to the load area from either side. Alternatively, the fully-opening barn doors provide rear access.
The Curtainside body is available with either the Boxer 335 L3 or L4 Single Cab. The body provides a maximum payload of up to 965kgs (with a 17m3 volume) or a maximum volume of 20m3 with a 879kg payload. This enables up to six Euro-pallets to be carried.
Similar construction techniques for the Luton are used for the Curtainside body, with the same lightweight aluminium alternative, yielding up to 75-80kgs more in payload. The reinforced front bulkhead is equipped with a kick strip to guard against damage.
Load restraining equipment includes aluminium V-groove side raves with four pull-up hooks. Lashing rings, providing additional load restraint points are available as an option. The side apertures open to 2,080mm, to ease loading from either side. The body comes with an interior light and external side marker lights.
The Peugeot Boxer Built for Business Box body 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 80kgs.
The body is available with either the Peugeot Boxer 335 L3 or L4 Single Cab. Features include high-quality GRP panels to provide durable, lightweight construction. Inside, a kick strip guards against damage. The body provides a load volume of up to 20m3 and payloads up to 1,051kgs.
Standard load restraint equipment includes load locking and tie rail strips. Additional rows and other options are available.
The rear closure is a lightweight roller shutter door with locking handle. Load handling equipment includes a standard 500kg capacity column tail lift. Dual controls enable operation from both inside and outside the vehicle. Lighting equipment includes an interior light with external rear marker lights.
