Peugeot’s greenest LCV just got greener

Peugeot’s greenest LCV just got greener At its launch the Peugeot Bipper created a completely new van segment and is one of the greenest vans available. The addition of an electronically controlled five-speed manual gearbox makes it an even better choice for busy urban drivers.

The five-speed electronically controlled manual gearbox is perfect for use in busy urban areas. Based on the standard manual gearbox, it uses an electro-hydraulic control system which allows the driver to select one of two operating modes: manual mode (gear changes controlled by the driver via the gear lever), or automatic mode (no gear changes carried out by the driver).

As well as assisting the driver when driving in busy urban areas through the convenience it provides, the gearbox designated 2-Tronic also helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

With the 2-Tronic gearbox, the Peugeot Bipper reduces its CO2 emissions and fuel consumption to 116 g/km and 64.2 mpg in the combined cycle.

Available in a single specification, the Peugeot Bipper S 1.4 HDi 70 2-Tronic comes as standard with electric front windows, remote control central locking with separate cab & cargo area locking, Automatic door locking over 12 mph and electric heated door mirrors for a basic price of £9,695 + VAT, £340 more than the standard 1.4 HDi 70 S model with a similar specification.

Also from September, all Peugeot Bipper models will be available with a standard driver’s ladder frame protector and an optional Multiflex passenger seat. The Multiflex folding passenger seat extends the flexibility of the Bipper even further. It increases the cubic capacity from 2.5m3 to 2.8 m3 and the load length from 1.5 m to 2.5 m.

The Multiflex passenger seat option is priced at just £70 + VAT.
