The Peugeot e-208 Allure Premium has been named the ‘Electric Small Car of the Year’ at the inaugural What Car? Electric Car Awards, beating a host of rivals to the title, including Honda E and Renault Zoe.
The Peugeot e-208 is the company’s first new generation full electric vehicle. It comes with an electric 50kWh, 136hp powertrain that’s capable of up to 217 miles of range (WLTP) from a single charge and supports rapid charging of up to 100kW, reaching 80 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes.
“All things considered, the e-208 is the best small electric car you can buy” said What Car? Editor, Steve Huntingford. “It has a good real-world range, the suspension does a great job of keeping you comfortable, and the interior is as eye-catching as it is classy. We particularly like the Allure Premium version, because it’s attractively priced, but still comes with loads of kit, including climate control, wireless phone charging and a 10.0in infotainment system with phone mirroring.”
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, added that the company is following a unique philosophy around the ‘power of choice’ that allows buyers to choose the right powertrain that suits their needs and that Peugeot’s electric vehicles come with the same practical features as their petrol or diesel vehicle counterparts, with no compromise in capability, interior space or technology.
In other categories, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric has been named the best Electric Family Car on sale. The multi-award winning Kia e-Niro won Best Electric small SUV and the SEAT Mii electric won Value Electric Car of the Year.
