Peugeot e-208 challenges Renault ZOE
The all-new Peugeot 208 with the all-electric e-208 version shown in Geneva in GT trim, raised a lot of interest. The new French subcompact brings to the table completely new dynamic styling.
In the current specification – especially with the 50 kWh battery, WLTP range of 340 km (211 miles) and 100 kW electric motor – it could be the tamer of the Renault ZOE, but there is one doubt. In several months, ZOE will ga et major upgrade in the form of a second generation version, which should make both cars at least competitive.
Such strong contenders from France probably will not leave much space for mainstream electric subcompacts in Europe for other manufacturers. Orders will be accepted from late summer 2019 on, while the launch is expected in the fall of 2019.
Let’s check out the live photos and videos with a detailed walkthrough of the exterior and interior.
