Having tested the 208 combustion version a few months ago, we wanted to get behind the wheel again and see if the Lion still roars in the electric version.
The most striking external design difference is the body-coloured chequered front grille in the electric version No surprises on board – the interior is the same as the combustion version.
You’ve guessed it: the difference between the combustion and electric versions is going to be the drive.
Road-holding with the e-208 is outstanding, it doesn’t even twitch on bends, taking the curves perfectly, but the clean drive does lack a bit of oomph.
You think back fondly of a joyful, almost nervy 208, with its old-style drive where the driver has to battle with the steering wheel a bit.
It’s the kind of fun we couldn’t wait to have when we jumped into the electric version. Sadly, there’s nothing doing: the magical drive so characteristic of the Peugeot is all gone with the e-208.
True car fans who love getting behind the wheel and having a blast on the roads will be going for the combustion version. That said, for anyone doing mainly short journeys in town, the little e-208 is the perfect answer, as it’s really comfortable and comes with a range of up to 340 km.
