Prices and specifications for the all-new Peugeot 208 and the fully-electric e-208 have been released. The all-new 208 and e-208 start from £16,250 and £25,050 (after Plug-In Car Grant) respectively with customer deliveries starting early 2020.
Peugeot says the all-new 208 is the first vehicle to fulfil its new philosophy of the power of choice i.e. ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain’. Featuring the choice of diesel, petrol or all-electric powertrains, the all-new 208 and e-208 will be available in Active, Allure and GT Line trim levels. The zero-emission e-208 is also available in range-topping GT trim.
Standard equipment includes the new Peugeot i-Cockpit with a compact multifunction steering wheel, configurable head-up display, either a 7-inch or 10-inch HD colour touchscreen (according to version) and seven satin chrome ‘piano’ toggle switches. The interior environment can also be personalised with a choice of eight LED mood lighting colours. All driving information can be easily accessed through the all-new Peugeot 208 3D i-Cockpit cluster which is a unique system that projects all the information on different layers giving you outstanding 3D effect.
Also available is Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance, programmable Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and Mirror Screen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.
Peugeot’s first new generation, 100 per cent electric vehicle, the e-208 uses a 50kWh battery and 134bhp electric motor to provide a 211 mile range from a full charge under the WLTP testing. The all-new 208 is also available with a choice of four petrol engines and one diesel:
- 1.2L PureTech 75 S&S 5-speed manual
- 1.2L PureTech 100 S&S 6-speed manual
- 1.2L PureTech 100 EAT8 S&S 8-speed automatic
- 1.2L PureTech 130 EAT8 S&S 8-speed automatic
- 1.5L BlueHDi 100 6-speed manual
- 50kWh battery with 134bhp electric motor
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “The all-new Peugeot 208 represents the first step in Peugeot’s vision of providing our customers with the ‘power of choice’ i.e. ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain.’ With class-leading levels of technology, sharp styling and a distinctive driving experience, we expect the all-new 208 and the all-new e-208 to challenge the norm in this sector of the market.”
The all-new e-208 is also available exclusively in range-topping GT trim. Priced at £29,650, the GT models feature fully automated parking assistance, adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Lane Positioning Assist and Blind Spot Monitoring. Inside, GT models come with grey Alcantara leather trim, heated front seats, and Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit with a larger 10-inch capacitive colour touchscreen and Connected 3D Navigation.
All e-208 models come with three driving modes – Sport, Normal and Eco – and support rapid charging up to 100kWh, with an 80 per cent charge taking just 30 minutes. The e-208 also features styling cues to set the electric model apart, including a body coloured chequered front grille, a bespoke ‘e’ monogram on the C-pillar and a dichroic Lion, which changes colour from different angles.
Peugeot recommend using a wallbox charger, so the all-new e-208 comes with a Mode 3 Type 2 cable as standard, which will charge the vehicle in 7.5 hours with a 7kW charging point. Peugeot customers can also download the MyPeugeot app, which will allow them to manage their vehicle charge remotely, precondition the temperature of the vehicle and receive ‘e-Coaching’ on how to benefit most from their vehicle. Peugeot will provide a ‘Charging Pass’ to their customers which enables them to access certain UK public charging points through a free subscription for an introductory period.
