Visit carwow to save money on your next car –

This is the Peugeot e-208! It’s almost identical to the recently released 208, only unlike the regular small hatchback, it’s all-electric! Hiding within the e-208 you’ll find a 50kWh battery pack and a 126hp electric motor, and you can expect to achieve a range of around 217 miles in it. As for the price? Well, it doesn’t come cheap, starting at around £29,000 – and that’s after UK buyers receive a £3,000 government grant for buying electric! So does this new player have what it takes to beat already established EVs such as the Nissan Leaf or Renault Zoe? Join Mat for this review to find out!

    Too bad they didn't make an anti-scratch – or anti-"stupid" system as it's called
    in Romania I would be sorry to buy such a car and to find it scratched by an idiot who bought his driver's license with money and who drives like a boot
    Obviously this can happen everywhere … but it seems like it's too much here …
    So in Romania either you buy a new car and in a week you don't cry for it because it's hit because you have enough money and you don't care … or you do like the vast majority of the population you get a used car scratched anyway and you don't care anymore … because you're too poor to buy a new one …
    Some even dream at "civilization"

    What cost the battery ??????? What cost the charger if it is going bad? Can it be repair it ??? I think they miss the point on the electric car questions here.
    Take for example Peugeot ion. The car after 8-10 years develop charger problem. Charger to change 4300 Euros because you cannot buy separately the parts to reaper it! Who would buy a car when the tire is flat and in the workshop you are told that the gearbox have to be replaced with the tire because they work together ???!!!!

    Everything is vin coded so you cannot buy used parts and replaced. Battery last about 15 years and cost until yet 10.000 Euros! Even if a small problem occurs with the battery you must change all the battery. So consider to give after 15 years 15.000 Euros for maintains. That’s no Green driving! This car cost more to drive than a normal gasoline car!

    Had our e208 for just 9 days before it broke down with a traction fault. We had only driven 102 miles. The car is potentially dangerous. My wife was driving home from work when it just suddenly stopped on a 40mph road with no warning. It has been with the dealer a week now. First it was a software glitch now they are going change the motor. My advice to anyone is…DON’T BUY IT. Google it, there a lot of people having problems with this car…

    Looks like motoring will return to being a rich man’s thing in future. This thing costs £33k, a fast charging point another £900, and a house with a drive an extra £10k compared to one on a road. Yes, there are government grants that reduce the first two of these at the moment, but if there’s no longer any fossil fuel taxes being collected the government will start collecting those missing taxes from EV drivers. So your little hatchback will prob cost £40k. Maybe that’s the plan, as there’s only enough lithium reserves in the world to make a fraction of the total number of cars presently on the road, which reserves are running out as v.little is recycled and batteries lose their ability to hold enough charge after 10yrs.

    There's nothing "best" about a car that COSTS DOUBLE compared to a 'regular' 208, and gets HALF the range. 'Pay more…to get less'??? Consumers aren't that gullible…or stupid. You won't see tons of these, e208's, on the roads or highways. NOPE!

    Somehow all the French cars have the most annoying sounds. Just the turn signal is atrocious on most.. And then the different alarms. Low Fuel, door open,…. Why do they make it so one hates their own car
