Peugeot has given its top-selling e-208 supermini a makeover with new styling, more technology and a longer electric range.
Launched in 2019, the baby Peugeot was the best-selling B-segment electric car in Europe last year. Despite that, the firm has added a number of new features to keep the car at the top of the sales charts.
The refreshed e-208 gets Peugeot’s latest design cues which include the brand’s new shield logo, a new grille made up of colour-coded elements, and three-claw LED day-running lights already seen on the latest e-2008 and 508 models. There’s a pair of new rear LED lights, too, while new colours including ‘Agueda Yellow’ feature, along with new alloy wheel designs.
There are further changes under the skin, too. Peugeot has bolted in Stellantis’s latest 54kWh (51kWh useable) battery and 156bhp electric motor that drives the front wheels. The 4kWh larger battery should give the e-208 a range of 248 miles (WLTP tested), while the 100kW rapid-charging capability means a 20-80% charge will take less than 25 minutes when connected to a suitable charger.
Join Nicola as she puts the new Peugeot e208 to the test for the first time. Have the changes gone far enough? Will the new version now make it onto your shortlist? Let us know in the comments below.
