Peugeot has dived into the electric car market with the excellent e-208 supermini. We check it out in GT trim.
Peugeot has taken the plunge and entered the EV market with two stylish offerings – the e-208 supermini and the e-2008 crossover.
The French manufacturer has taken a different route from rivals like Renault and Volkswagen, making the electric version just another option in the range, rather than a specialised vehicle like the Renault Zoe, Nissan Leaf or VW’s forthcoming ID.3.
It’s fair to say this is definitely not tokenism from Peugeot; the e-208 is an excellent car that’s been clearly made with the belief that the day of the zero-emissions car has finally dawned.
It fits brilliantly into the new 208 range and makes a strong statement that not only is Peugeot committed to electrification, but that electric vehicles are actually its very future.
In short, if you’re interested in a smaller electric car, the e-208 should be at the top of your consideration list: it’s stylish, fast, bursting with tech and has an excellent official range of 211 miles – more than enough for most drivers. Should you need juice away from home, it will charge to 80% in half an hour.
Plus, it has Peugeot’s brilliant 3D iCockpit system that brings everything into the driver’s eyeline in a fabulously innovative way.
What does it look like?
Impressive, actually – just like the new 208 in general. It will appeal to a range of buyers, young and old, with or without families.
