Introducing the Peugeot e-2008
Peugeot have joined the evolution of the motor-car with the introduction of the e-2008, a 100% electric version of their highly regarded 2008. We're confident this will prove a fine move for the French automotive giants, who promise the technology and practicality of the conventionally-powered e-2008 will be perfectly complemented by the sensational driving dynamics offered by an all-electric drivetrain.
With fast-charging and usable real-world range on a brimmed battery, the e-2008 is guaranteed to offer a realistic and desirable alternative to traditional petrol or diesel powered vehicles.
If you're worried about the bills associated with replacing batteries, then you will be pleased to know that the e-2008's car battery has an 8-year warranty (or 100,000 miles) for 70% of its charge capacity.
Range and Performance
Electric vehicles are climbing in popularity because of the number of benefits they offer over a traditional petrol or diesel powered vehicle. With a range of up to 193 miles on a full-charge, e-2008 offers real-world usability, while producing 0g CO2 emissions - so you can do your bit for the environment.
Furthermore, the nature of an all-electric car means the e-2008 will offer supremely responsive and sharp acceleration (thanks to the immediate torque available) and a silent engine, which only adds to the serene driving experience.
With fast charging and significantly reduced running costs, the Peugeot e-2008 represents the perfect time to join the evolution.
Peugeot have made it simple and easy to charge your electric car at your home, work place or out on the road at a public charging station, of which there are more than 26,000 in the UK - a number that is constantly rising.
While it is possible to charge the vehicle from a standard UK three-pin plug, it will take a long time, so you're best off getting a wallbox installed at your home (our associates can offer advice about this) which will reduce the empty-to-full charge time to just 7 hours - simply plug it in overnight, like a smartphone.
When you're out and about, a standard 50kW public charger will boost the battery from 20-80% in just 40 minutes, while a rapid charger reduces that time to only 20 minutes for increased convenience.
