The specifications of PEUGEOT’s first new generation, 100% electric vehicle, the e-208 has been announced. The e-208 uses a 50kWh battery and 136hp electric motor to provide a 340km range from a full charge under the WLTP testing.
UK pricing after deducting the UK Governments Plug-In Car Grant will be approx $49,000 AUD.
The e-208 comes with three driving modes – Sport, Normal and Eco – and support rapid charging up to 100kWh, with an 80% charge taking just 30 minutes.
The e-208 also features unique styling cues to set the electric model apart from the standard 208 range, including a body coloured chequered front grille, a bespoke ‘e’ monogram on the C-pillar and a dichroic Lion, which changes colour from different angles.
The all-new e-208 is also available exclusively in range-topping GT trim. It features fully automated parking assistance, adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Lane Positioning Assist and Blind Spot Monitoring. Inside the e-208 comes with grey Alcantara leather trim, heated front seats, and PEUGEOT 3D i-Cockpit with a larger 10-inch capacitive colour touchscreen and Connected 3D Navigation.
The e-208 also features front and rear parking sensors and 180˚ reversing camera, 17-inch wheels, Active Safety Brake with Night function, cyclist and pedestrian detection, eight-colour ambient interior lighting and full LED headlights with PEUGEOT Smartbeam Assist.
PEUGEOT recommend using a wallbox charger, so the all-new e-208 comes with a Mode 3 Type 2 cable as standard, which will charge the vehicle in 7.5 hours with a 7kW charging point.
UK PEUGEOT customers can also download the MyPeugeot app, which will allow them to manage their vehicle charge remotely, precondition the temperature of the vehicle and receive ‘e-Coaching’ on how to benefit most from their vehicle. PEUGEOT will provide a ‘Charging Pass’ to their UK customers which enables them to access certain public charging points through a free subscription for an introductory period.
