Peugeot e-208 wins award

The all-new Peugeot e-208 has been a hit with drivers since its release in September last year. Its 100% electric offers an exciting drive with a generous range of up to 217 miles and drivers can enjoy exclusive, distinctive features that embody technology and modernity.

With that in mind, it’s easy to see why it was named ‘Best Electric Car’ at Autocar’s inaugural ‘Britain’s Best Cars Awards’ this year. The judges recognised its interesting design, exceptional driving experience and competitive value.

With electric vehicles becoming increasingly popular, the full-electric all-new Peugeot e-208 saw off fierce competition to take the trophy. Autocar’s criteria for the award meant that contenders had to stand out and deliver uncompromising range and value, as well as proving themselves with practicality and impressing with style.

Autocar Editor Mark Tisshaw said: “The all-new Peugeot e-208 wins its category by showing how comparatively simply users of regular cars should be able to adapt to electric motoring in the future. Also for bringing with it the driving and beauty standards from the upper echelon of the fiercely-fought supermini market. Its interior is invitingly premium and offers a refreshingly different iteration of Peugeot’s radical i-Cockpit® design. The e-208’s on-road capability also plays a large part in reassuring first-time electric car buyers.

The ‘Best Electric Car’ title adds to the all-new e-208’s growing list of award wins, having been named:

  • 2020 European Car of the Year
  • ‘Electric Small Car of the Year’ at What Car? Electric Car Awards 2020

Featuring a 136hp electric motor and a 50kWh battery, the all-new e-208 has a zero emissions range of up to 217 miles of range (WLTP) from a single charge. Using 100kW rapid charging, an 80% charge takes as little as 30 minutes.

The e-208 features Peugeot’s latest 3D i-Cockpit® technology. Standard from Allure upwards, the Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit® offers easy access to all driving information through the 3D digital instrument panel and features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto.

It also features a range of advanced driver aids, including Lane Keeping Assist and Driver Attention Warning as standard, while the range-topping GT trim also provides Connected 3D Navigation and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go.
