Why does everyone love the Peugeot e-208?

New electric Vehicles - Honda E

Although it was released in early 2020, the Peugeot e-208 is still the talk of the town. It has even been awarded ‘European Car of the Year 2020’. 

We have to say that this comes as no surprise, given that the car offers optimum driving pleasure and spectacular money saving. When it comes to the Peugeot e-208, it really does tick every box, but let’s delve into that a bit more.


Driving Pleasure

As with any car, the driving experience needs to be second to none, and you can certainly expect to receive this when you experience the Peugeot e-208.

The Peugeot e-208 also delivers new sensations such as a smooth drive, with no vibration. This will be sure to set you up for a relaxing journey ahead. It provides a sharp acceleration due to the immediate engine torque, to really get that luxury feeling as you set off. 

In addition to this, the silent engine offers a soothing driving experience, while at the same time producing 0g of CO2 emissions. 


Much like their petrol and diesel counterparts, the new e-208 shares the same type of styling with the exterior shaping. The overall look is sporty, but can very much be suited to everyone’s taste at the same time.

The Peugeot e-208 includes the monogram “e” and dichroic Lion, which changes colour depending on the angle it is viewed at. 

Depending on the colour you choose, you can also see the chequered front grille to match it. The attention to detail on this car is really quite extraordinary. 

As for the interior, it really is the star of the show. This car really delivers a sense of comfort with its excellent upholstery. The stitching inside screams quality, and is a reason itself to hire the car. 

Not to mention the energising Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit. This was introduced originally on the petrol version of the 208, and now over 5 million customers worldwide benefit from the i-Cockpit. As an iconic feature of the brand, it offers key information on your driving directly within the driver’s eyeline, reducing the need to take your eyes off the road. You can expect to see:

  • Driving mode: Eco/Normal/Sport
  • Battery level
  • Speed of the vehicle

Range and charging

The Peugeot e-208 is the perfect car for city and town driving, and is ideal for your commute to work. 

It offers up to 210 miles, which of course is varied on how you choose to drive the vehicle. In Eco mode, you can expect to see more for your miles as it works to conserve its charge.

Using the Sport mode means that your charge may not last as long, but you will have an amazing driving experience!

As with all electric vehicles, the way you drive impacts the mileage of your vehicle. Meaning that if you’re using heated seats, lights, radio and air conditioning, your range could be affected.

The e-208 can reach 0-60mph in just 8.1 seconds, and it feels a whole lot faster due to the immediacy of acceleration! 

Do you worry about range anxiety? Not to worry! Charging has never been made easier with EVision, as all customers receive a free wallbox charge point when they hire for 12 months or more. Customers also benefit from a mileage limit of 10,000 per annum for all long term hires. Charging, check! Mileage, check!
