July 6, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
Order books for the new Peugeot E-208 will open this fall. The electric hatchback will have a new electric motor, a greater range, and a more modern, dynamic external design.
The first-generation E-208 was introduced with a 100kW electric motor and 50kWh battery, providing a range of up to 217 miles, as a competitor to the Renault Zoe and Honda E.
The E-208 received a mid-life upgrade in 2021 that included a heat pump and a new transmission, helping to boost its range to 225 miles.
With a 51kWh battery and 115kW electric motor, the new electric supermini can go up to 248 kilometers on a single charge.
A 20–80% charge is anticipated to take a 100k quick charger around 25 minutes, or a 7kW home charger about 4 hours, 40 minutes.
The new brand logo has been entirely integrated into the front end, and the front grille has been styled to match the body color of the previous generation vehicle. LED lighting is commonplace.
The revised e-208 receives the same three-claw light signature as its e-2008 brother, which consists of three integrated, long vertical lights. The lights have been moved to the car’s outside border to give it a wider stance.
Additional improvements have been made to the back, which now has a distinctive three-claw light signature made up of red LED lights aligned horizontally.
White ‘E’ patterns are scattered around the bodywork of the new e-208 to match Peugeot’s electric vehicle lineup. Not only has the bodywork been changed, but there are also two new wheel designs for the E-208 that come in 16- and 17-inch alloy sizes.
The company’s most recent i-Connect infotainment system, controlled by a 10″ touchscreen display mounted on top of the dashboard, is housed within the stylish new E-208. GT variants come included with a 3D display.
Behind Peugeot’s small steering wheel is a digital display, a design element that has come to represent the company.
Thankfully, Peugeot hasn’t completely abandoned physical buttons just yet, and a number of features, including air conditioning, are simple to use.
The electric hatch now has a variety of innovative driver assistance systems, including as adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, road sign recognition, and lane keep assist.
Active, Allure, and GT are the three trim levels that are initially offered. New front and rear light signatures as well as an upgraded 10″ touchscreen are included with the Active trim, which is the base model. If you choose the top-of-the-line GT trim, full LED headlights, 17-inch alloys, and a high-definition parking camera are included.
Peugeot has not yet announced the price of the electric supermini, but we anticipate it to start at about £32,000.
