With a 100kW electric motor and a 50kWh battery producing a range of up to 211 miles according to WLTP procedures, the all-new 100% electric Peugeot e-208 is being Peugeot’s latest EV offering.
It comes with three driving modes: Eco, to optimise range, Normal, optimising comfort, and Sport, allowing the driver to prioritise performance. The battery is covered by an 8-year, 100,000-mile manufacturer warranty.
Distributed under the floor plan of the all-new Peugeot 208, the 220L battery is positioned to allow maximum interior space and boot space to be maintained, matching the capacities of the petrol and diesel versions.
Three charging methods are available for the all-new Peugeot e-208. Charging from a domestic plug is one option, using a classic domestic plug for a complete charge in 20+ hours. Accelerated charge at home, where the e-208 can be charged more quickly and safely from a dedicated charging point which takes approximately 8 hours for a full charge. And, rapid recharging at a public terminal.
Alongside the options to charge through these conventional means, the all-new Peugeot e-208 allows drivers to remotely activate the charging of their car via the Connected 3D Navigation colour touchscreen or by using the MyPeugeot smartphone app. The app can also be used to pre-programme the car’s heating, air conditioning and windscreen defrosting.
