The answers to your questions are vehicle (not model) specific but:

1. probably not
2. Neither, split charge relay
3. Lithium 60Ah no remote access or heating
4. ??
5.??

As I said vehicle specific - you wont know what you've got unless you specify on order or take delivery of a vehicle.

The Nueovo EK are the Peugeot Boxster vans only the Automatics are Fiat. Surely a new model (2023) will be consistent with each other?

Unfortunately AS are not good at identifying the habitation electrical system spec to that level of detail. They have subcontracted all design and production of the electrical installation to Sargent and appear to retain very little systems knowledge in house. 

One of the more recent effects of this has been a rather hapzard introduction of lithium habitation batteries without taking a systems approach, for example failing to appreciate the fact that smart alternators are fitted to most Euro 6 diesels now. Another weakness is poor use of solar. 

To compound the situation, AS regularly change what they fit in their vans, such that two outwardly identical models of the same year may have variations. You could ask a dealer but I doubt they would know the answers. A better bet would be to contact Sargent and ask them. 

Many owners on here have made modifications to their electrical systems, particularly on newer vans, mainly to improve harvesting of solar energy, achieve better off-grid capability, and to maintain batteries during winter layups. AS produce great vans, we’re on our 4th, but the reality is that they design them to be used on EHU for most of the time.
