    PEUGEOT’S ALL-NEW, all-electric e-208 supermini — which has a 211 mile range — is now on sale at Scottish dealerships, with prices starting at £25,050 (incl the government’s £3500 plug-in car grant).

    Since April, buyers have been able to place a refundable £500 reservation on limited 208 and e-208 models; the GT Line 1.2L PureTech 100 S&S 8-speed automatic, 1.5L BlueHDi 100 S&S 6-speed manual and the 100% electric e-208.

    The all-new 208 is available in Active, Allure, and GT Line trims, while the e-208 comes in Active, Allure, GT Line and range-topping GT specification. (Related: Peugeot e-208 prototype at Silverstone)

    On Personal Finance Lease, the all-new Peugeot e-208 in Active trim will start at £289 per month for a 48 month contract, with a customer initial rental of £5450 and an optional final rental of £8978.


    The all-new 208 can be ordered in Active trim with a £700 customer initial rental and £229 monthly payments as part of a 48 month contract, with a final £6138 optional final rental.

    Company car and fleet users can also take advantage of the all-new 208 and e-208 as Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rates stand at nil for the all-new e-208 across all trim levels from April 2020, while the all-new 208 sees BIK rates start from just 22%.


    Peugeot believes the e-208, uses a 50kWh battery and 136hp electric motor, will particularly appeal to fleet and company car managers looking to cut down their tax bill, while also saving businesses in fuel costs. (Related: Peugeot unveils all-electric e-208)

    However, it’s worth pointing out that it’ll take more than 20 hours to fully recharge the e-208’s battery using a conventional three-pin household socket. Using a dedicated home charging point will see charge times reduced to around eight hours. Peugeot claims a commercial 100kW fast charger will provide an 80% charge in 30 minutes.


    “We revealed the all-new 208 and e-208 in March and it has seen a fantastic reception from both the public and the press,” David Peel, managing director of Peugeot UK, said. “From April, customers have been able to reserve selected all-new 208 and e-208 models with a refundable £500 deposit, but we are now very excited to open the order books across the whole model range.


    “The all-new 208 is the first vehicle in Peugeot line-up to fulfil the company’s new philosophy of ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain’. The 208 is also the first model to meet Peugeot promise of offering electrified variants across its entire model line-up by 2023.”
