The most powerful 208 of the second generation is an electric car. The e-208 does 136 hp and is a bit more luxurious than the combustion engines – recognizable, however, only by the missing exhaust pipes, the blue designed grill and the blue “e” emblems on each side. Get in, cockpit, gear lever, everything like in a gasoline engine. Engage gear D and the e-208 accelerates to 100 km / h in 8.1 seconds; but then the values determined in the WLTP process melt up to 362 kilometers range like ice in the sun. 260 Nm Torque make the little ones very confident, a whopping 1585 kilos of weight force the stiff suspension to one A little more comfort.
The basic version Peugeot e-208 Active starts at 31,950 euros
Three driving modes (Eco, Normal and Sport) are standard. Below D is the additional speed level B for stronger braking, the energy in the 50 kWhbattery returns. In normal mode, the Peugeot consumed fuel on our first trip, according to the on-board computer 18.8 kWh per 100 kilometers, the Renault Zoe was last more economical with 13.9 kWh. And with 31,950 euros base price the Frenchman tears a pain threshold, precisely because the largely identical Opel Corsa-e (click here for the driving report) costs less than 30,000 euros. It’s good that the purchase premium for electric cars is still missing.
