All conversions will be powered by the 2.0-litre 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.
The 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.
Two of the six conversions on offer at launch are tipper and dropside. The tipper model (pictured) is based on either the Boxer 335 L2 single cab or L3 crew cab, offering payloads of up to 1,222kg. Bodywork has a bolted construction for ease of maintenance, with parts made from steel and aluminium for durability and optimum payload, and the vehicle features a compact scissor-type underfloor tipping gear.
The dropside, meanwhile, is based on the L2 single, L3 single or L3 crew cab, and offers a maximum 1,441kg payload. The load floor is made from a single piece of non-slip birch plywood, with 800kg capacity retractable load securing rings fitted to its perimeter frame. Aluminium corner posts at the rear can be lifted out when not required and the side and tailboards removed to provide a flatbed body.
“With the launch of Built for Business light CV conversions, Peugeot is providing certainty for customers that they are buying a vehicle where all parts of the conversion are built to the same exacting standard as the base vehicle,” says Richard Abbott, head of national specialist fleets at PSA Group.
“We can guarantee quick delivery, excellent payload and competitive prices.”
