With revised pricing for all e-2008 models and enhanced deposit contributions for the award-winning e-208 range, PEUGEOT has reinforced its commitment to affordable electrification. PEUGEOT has made the changes in response to the recent overhaul of the government’s Plug-in Car Grant, which has been reduced to £2,500 and is now only available on new electric vehicles costing less than £35,000.
PEUGEOT joins Citroen, MG, and Vauxhall, in reducing prices to help consumers as a consequence of the government’s grant reductions. The French carmaker has reduced list prices across the entire e-2008 range to ensure customers can continue to benefit from the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG). A reduction of £450 on all versions mean Active Premium, Allure and Allure Premium models remain eligible for the new grant.
Prices after the PiCG 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.
Also, further customer savings of £500 have been applied to its 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.
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.”
