Price cut for Peugeot e-2008 25 | 03 | 2021

    PEUGEOT HAS RESPONDED to the Government’s decision to reduce the threshold for its newly-reduced £2500 plug-in car grant (PiCG) to £35,000, by cutting the price of its e-2008 range by £450. (Related: Scot Paul di Resta leads Peugeot Le Mans return)

    To qualify for the new £2500 grant, electric vehicles must have a list price below £35,000. Previously, the grant was £3000 on any vehicle with a list price below £50,000.

    By introducing the new savings of £450 on the e-2008, Peugeot has guaranteed the Active Premium, Allure and Allure Premium models remain eligible for the new £2500 grant. It also means, essentially, the extra £450 contribution combines with the £2500 PiCG to bring the total reduction of cost on an EV to £3000 — ok, £2950 — matching the Government’s previous subsidy.

    With the PiCG subsidy, plus the savings from Peugeot, the e-2008 Active Premium costs from £30,730. The Allure and Allure Premium versions of the e-2008 retain are priced from £31,930 and £32,280 respectively.

    Worth highlighting though that not every model in the e-2008 range qualifies for the more stringent grant. GT and GT Premium models are no longer eligible, and are priced from £37,180 and £39,180.

    Throughout March, Peugeot is also offering an additional £500 support in deposit contribution on PCP contracts and cash purchases. In addition, further customer savings of £500 have been applied to our Pride offers and Personal and Business contract hire agreements on all e-208 models (pictured above).
