Peugeot has announced prices and specification details for its new 208 range – including the pure-electric e-208. The electric supermini will cost from £25,050, including UK Plug-in Car Grant.
Powered by a 50 kWh motor and 100 kW (136 hp) electric motor, the e-208 will be available in one of four trim options – Active, Allure, GT Line, and GT. Allure sees a £1,200 premium over entry-level Allure spec, GT Line starts at £28,100, and the e-208 is the only powertrain available in GT trim, costing from £29,650.
Electric models come with 16-inch alloys, leather-effect trim, and Peugeot’s new, configurable, 3D i-Cockpit. Allure adds Peugeot’s 3D real-light clusters, while GT-Line features front and rear parking sensors plus reversing camera, 17-inch alloys, Active Brake Assist with night function, and cyclist & pedestrian detection, eight colour ambient lighting, LED headlights, and sportier styling details.
All e-208’s come with the same powertrain, which allows for a range of up to 211 miles on a single charge. Charging can be carried out at up to 100 kW on DC CCS rapid units, and at 11 kW from an AC point.
Peugeot will provide a ‘Charging Pass’ to customers with free subscription for an introductory period, and the above prices are subject to model approval by OLEV. Since it meets all the criteria for the Category 1 Plug-in Car Grant, there are no problems expected in it being approved, with deliveries expected to start in early 2020.
