A prototype version of the all-new PEUGEOT e-208 will be shown at the Fully Charged Live 2019 electric vehicle event, held at Silverstone. The pre-production e-208 will be one of the key attractions at the Fully Charged Live event, which takes place from the 7th to 9th June. Visitors will be able to find the supermini EV at the PEUGEOT stand in Wing, Hall 1.
As part of PEUGEOT’s ambitions to provide electrified variants across its model range by 2023, the 100% electric e-208 is powered by a 100kW motor and a 50kWh battery, delivering a zero-emission range of up to 211 miles (WLTP) from a full charge.
Built on the new e-CMP electrified modular platform, the all-new PEUGEOT e-208 is capable of supporting 100kW rapid charging, achieving an 80% charge in 30 minutes. A full charge, using a 7kWh Wallbox charger at home, will take eight hours.
David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK said: “With order books opening later this year, the Fully Charged Live event at Silverstone is the perfect opportunity for PEUGEOT to introduce the all-new e-208 to the British public.”
On Friday, as part of the Fully Charged Live event, PEUGEOT Marketing Director, Steven Wass will participate in a live panel discussion on the ‘Importance of Cool Concept Cars’ alongside leading industry figures, hosted by automotive journalist and television presenter Jonny Smith.
The e-208 comes with the latest version of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® featuring a 3D instrument panel and touchscreen display. All e-208 models will come standard with MirrorLink®, featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto. Drivers can also choose from three driving modes, Eco, Normal and Sport.
