Peugeot announces prices for e-208 in the UK

In an official announcement, Peugeot UK has finally revealed the cost and specifications of the upcoming, all-new 208 in the country. The automaker has also released details pertaining to the electric version of the 208 --- the e-208.

According to the announcement, the UK cost of the e-208 -- Peugeot’s first fully electric vehicle -- will be £25,050, after government subsidies. The delivery of the new 208 to UK customers is likely to commence in 2020. The vehicle has already been made available to the customers in the European mainland, since June 2019.

The e-208 pricing announced by Peugeot UK implies that the vehicle has been priced below the Corsa-e, which costs £26,790 after the UK government subsidy of £3,500. The e-208 and the Corsa-e are built on the same vehicle platform, and share the same powertrain.

About the specifications of the e-208, Peugeot has revealed that the electric vehicle is equipped with a 50 kWh battery pack, and a 100 kW drive output. It has a driving range of 340 km (211 miles), according to the WLTP standard. In the sports mode, the e-208 takes barely 8.1 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h. The vehicle can be charged with an 80 kW DC charger or 11 kW AC charger.

Peugeot UK Managing Director David Peel has asserted that the all-new 208 and the all-new e-208 boast “class-leading levels of technology, sharp styling and a distinctive driving experience.”
