Meet the new Peugeot e-208 - a seriously handsome French supermini from a nation famous for amore, and for building adorable cars. You might expect fireworks from falling in ‘electric’ love at first sight, but the Peugeot e-208 wasn’t designed to stand out from 'normal' petrol and diesel vehicles. Instead, it looks like a conventional Peugeot 208, only a little less gawky in the face. Don’t get us wrong, though, this battery-powered EV IS nice to look at - and the high-spec models with triple-LED ‘claw’ lights and 17-inch rims border are particularly stunning. Plus, it can romp from 0-100 kph in a zippy 7.9 seconds without even breaking a sweat. A 50kWh battery powers the e-208’s 134bhp electric motor for an impressive 340 km range.
Small, desirable, and currently available at LeasePlan, the Peugeot e-208 just might be your car soulmate.
