Peugeot has got into the electric car market early with the all new e-208 model, having sensibly designed the new car to be able to take both petrol, diesel and electric power trains, and one of the best things that can be said is that it's done this so well there is no compromise or downside whatsoever to the car in choosing the electric option - it simply feels like the same great looking 208 model regardless of engine. The slight increase in weight doesn’t impact that car's fantastic go kart like handling that has been a trademark of the 208 model, and the electric motor is a joy to use.
The e-208 has a 100kW electric motor powering the front wheels which is around the same as 134 horsepower in old money, so a good level of power is available and like all electric cars the torque is seamless from zero revs so there's an instant kick in the back from a standstill. the battery is a 50kWh unit which official gives you a range of 211 miles before needing recharging, which can be done at home on a 7kW charger or can ba fast charged at a rate up to 100kW on even the most basic model, meaning no long waits on longer journeys if you need a top up. The e-208 has a growing list of rivals such as the new Mini Electric, the Honda e, the Nissan Leaf and the Renault Zoe, though perhaps the new VW ID.3 will be the strongest, but it is refreshingly good to say on this showing we can easily recommend the Peugeot.
