PEUGEOT have improved the driving range of the e-208 electric car, whilst revealing a series of updates and some revised trim levels and styling changes for 2022. From next year the latest technological developments on the fully electric e-208 will see the range increase to 225 miles (362km).
The 2022 Model Year e-208’s improved electric range is the result of several efficiency improvements. An interior humidity sensor located at the top of the windscreen is introduced, while the efficiency of the heat pump has improved.
These together heat and cool the interior more effectively, resulting in improved electric range, particularly during the winter months. A mechanical development sees the introduction of a new gearbox ratio helping to optimise electric range at higher speeds, particularly on motorway journeys.
In response to customer feedback, PEUGEOT has also streamlined the trim levels across the e-208 range, with the 2022 PEUGEOT model available in Active Premium, Allure Premium, GT and GT Premium.
Both the Active Premium and the Allure Premium versions of the e-208 electric vehicle (EV) remain eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PiCG), attracting £1,500 in support from the government. These versions are priced at £28,225 and £29,525 respectively (inclusive of PICG).
Customers of fully-electric PEUGEOT vehicles can also benefit from a free six-month subscription to bp pulse, one of the largest public charging networks in the UK.
PEUGEOT e-208 variants will continue to be powered by a combination of a 50kWh battery and a 100kW (136hp) electric motor. This supports up to 100kW rapid charging allowing an 80 percent charge can be completed in just 30 minutes.
