Peugeot’s Baby e-208 Wins Electric Car Award

The all-new Peugeot e-208 Allure Premium has been named the ‘Electric Small Car of the Year’ at the inaugural What Car? Electric Car Awards, beating a host of rivals to the title, including Honda E and Renault Zoe.

The all-new e-208, Peugeot’s first, new generation full electric vehicle, continues its award-winning run, taking home the ‘Electric Small Car of the Year’ award at the inaugural What Car? Electric Car Awards. The all-new PEUGEOT 208 and e-208 was named the ‘European Car of the Year’ earlier this year.

There’s a special £1800 deposit contribution available on new stocks right now too by the way.

PEUGEOT’s “eye-catching” interior in the all-new e-208 Allure Trim also scored high with the What Car? judges. The panel praised the new interior with the latest 3D i-Cockpit® offering a suite of technology and driver safety features.

The all-new PEUGEOT e-208 comes with an electric 50kWh, 136hp powertrain that’s capable of up to 217 miles of range (WLTP) from a single charge. It supports rapid charging of up to 100kW, reaching 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes.

What Car? Editor, Steve Huntingford, said: “All things considered, the e-208 is the best small electric car you can buy. It has a good real-world range, the suspension does a great job of keeping you comfortable, and the interior is as eye-catching as it is classy. We particularly like the Allure Premium version, because it’s attractively priced, but still comes with loads of kit, including climate control, wireless phone charging and a 10.0in infotainment system with phone mirroring.”

David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK, said: “The all-new e-208 is our first new generation full electric vehicle, and it’s great to see it immediately recognised by both the industry and the buying public. Our electric vehicles come with the same practical features as their petrol or diesel vehicle counterparts, with no compromise in capability, interior space or technology. We are very honoured to receive the ‘Electric Small Car of the Year’ award from What Car?”
