Peugeot cuts e-2008 price to qualify for plug-in grant

Peugeot has revised pricing for all e-2008 models and enhanced deposit contributions for the e-208 range in response to the Government cutting the plug-in grant

The manufacturer has reduced list prices across the entire e-2008 range by £450 to ensure Active Premium, Allure and Allure Premium models remain eligible for the new grant.

Prices after the plug-in car grant for the Active Premium now start from £30,730, while Allure models start from £31,930 and Allure Premium variants from £32,380.

Throughout March, Peugeot is also offering an additional £500 support in deposit contribution on PCP contracts and cash purchases.

In addition, further customer savings of £500 have been applied to our Pride offers and Personal and Business contract hire agreements on all e-208 models.

In combination with the £2,500 PiCG this brings the total deduction to £3,000, matching the Government’s previous subsidy, said Peugeot.

Julie David, managing director of Peugeot UK, said: “The plug-in car grant has helped many make the switch to electric vehicles, and we have ensured our electric cars remain eligible for the grant.

“The revised pricing of the e-2008 and increased deposit contribution for the e-208 are further evidence of our commitment to electrification with our goal to offer an electrified variant across our entire model line-up by 2025.”

Peugeot’s price cut comes after Vauxhall has reduced the prices of its Mokka-e and Vivaro-e so that all its electric models are eligible for the revised plug-in grant. 

Fellow Stellantis brand Citroen also confirmed price cuts to its new e-C4 model following the changes to the grant.
