The new Peugeot e-208’s brief sounds simple: take the exceptional 208 hatchback and provide all-electric performance. With the great looks, sporty feel, and impressive levels of technology of the standard model now complemented by zero emissions motoring and a range in excess of 200 miles, it’s fair to say that the new e-208 has successfully met the demands asked of it.
The new e-208 features the distinctive, seductive style that has become familiar through its combustion engine sibling. Feline-inspired headlights sit either side of Peugeot’s new-look front grille, and the LED daytime running lights are unique in their appearance. Bold 17-inch alloy wheels are great to look at and offer incredible handling, and subtle ‘e’ branding can be spotted around the vehicle’s exterior to demonstrate that this is no ordinary hatchback.
Step inside the cabin of the new e-208 and there’s nothing ordinary to be found. Like all the very best vehicles in the Peugeot lineup, the new e-208 is decked out with the manufacturer’s innovative i-Cockpit layout. This engaging setup provides you with key driving information and controls in a customisable arrangement, with a colour touchscreen set in the heart of the dashboard the key focus for attention. With quality trim and upholstery throughout, ample boot space, and more than enough room for five, the new e-208 also offers plenty by way of practicality.
If it’s the latest in technology you’re after, this impressive model will not disappoint. That central touchscreen already mentioned will connect seamlessly to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, enabling you to manage calls, messaging, satellite navigation and more safely and easily. Not only that, but you will be able to access details of the nearest charging points via 3D mapping, thereby ensuring you will never be lost without a suitable charging option.
In addition to the infotainment technology, safety is a key concern of the new e-208. Intelligent and active systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Monitoring take advantage of all the latest in radar and camera technology, providing you with alerts and assistance when dangers you may otherwise have missed present themselves.
Performance in the new Peugeot e-208 is where things get really interesting. With the instant delivery of torque from standstill, the e-208 provides a thrilling and engaging ride wherever life takes you. And, with a range of up to 217 miles on a single charge, that can be as far from home as you wish. Depending on the charging facility used, an 80% charge can be completed in just 30 minutes, meaning you’ll always be fit for action with the new e-208.
