Peugeot unveils new 208 and electric e-208 supermini

11 Peugeot 208 2019

Peugeot has released details of its new 208 and electric e-208 supermini models, with its order book opening in late summer.

The 208 will be available with a range of Euro 6d petrol and diesel engines, while the zero emission e-208 will offer a range of up to 211 miles.

The e-208 is the first in a series of 100% electric models as Peugeot prepares to electrify its entire range by 2023.

David Peel, managing director of Peugeot UK said: “Our work with the all-new Peugeot 208 and e-208 is a great representation of how we are pushing the brand forward to operate in the upcoming age of electric vehicles.

“Both the standard and electric version of the 208 have been developed to be more economical, environmentally friendly and practical for drivers in 2019 and beyond to give customers the freedom of choice without compromise.

“We are all so excited at Peugeot to be building towards our goal of a full electric range by 2023, and the e-208 is a great step in cementing Peugeot’s foothold in the ever-growing EV market.”

The e-208 has a 100kW electric motor and a 50kWh battery, and Peugeot will launch new services to coincide with the arrival of the e-208.

The new services include:

Easy-Charge: A range of at-home or office charging solutions with a choice of equipment, a diagnostic service to assess the electric installation and plan for a better charging solution and final installation. It also includes a public charge offering via Free2Move Services, including a charge pass giving access to public charging points across Europe.

Easy-Mobility: A trip planner and organisational tool for long journeys via Free2Move Services; a Mobility Pass for a rental internal combustion engine when needed; E-coaching tool in the MyPeugeot app which offers advice to drivers on how to optimise their driving.

The 208 will also be available with the following engines at launch:

  • 1.2 PureTech 75 S&S 5-speed manual
  • 1.2 PureTech 100 S&S 6-speed manual or 8 speed automatic
