ELECTRIFYING ARRIVAL:

WORLD PREMIERE FOR ALL-NEW PEUGEOT 208 AND E-208 AT GENEVA MOTOR SHOW 2019

The all-new PEUGEOT 208 has been unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, with a choice of petrol, diesel and electric (EV) powertrains set to be available from launch. The zero-emission PEUGEOT e-208 is the first in a series of 100% electric models, as PEUGEOT aims to electrify its entire range by 2023.

ALL-NEW PEUGEOT e-208
With a 100kW electric motor and a 50kWh battery producing a range of up to 211 miles according to WLTP procedures, the all-new 100% electric PEUGEOT e-208 comes with three driving modes: Eco, to optimise range, Normal, optimising comfort and Sport, allowing the driver to focus on performance. The battery is covered by an 8 year, 100,000 mile manufacturer warranty. Distributed under the floor plan of the all-new PEUGEOT 208, the 220L battery is positioned to allow maximum cabin space and boot space to be maintained, matching the capacities of the petrol and diesel versions.

Three charging methods are available for the all-new PEUGEOT e-208:

  • Charging from a domestic plug: The e-208 charges using a classic domestic plug in 20+ hours for a complete charge
  • Accelerated charge at home: The e-208 can be charged more quickly and safely from a dedicated charging point which takes approximately 8 hours for a full charge. Government subsidies in the UK are available to support this
  • Rapid recharging at a public terminal: 80% of the vehicle charge can be obtained in 30 minutes** from a 100kW charging station. Rapid chargers can be found at most motorway service stations and are being progressively installed across the UK

Alongside these conventional charging options, the all-new PEUGEOT e-208 allows drivers to remotely activate the charging of their car via the Connected 3D Navigation colour touchscreen or by using the MyPeugeot smartphone app.The MyPeugeot smartphone app can be used to pre-programme the car’s heating, air conditioning and windscreen defrosting. In-car heating has also been improved thanks to the high-power heater (5 kW) powered by the HV battery, heat pump and automatic temperature control in the passenger compartment. Vehicle range is preserved due to improved power efficiency compared to conventional climate control and Heated seats (dependent on the version).
