Introduction

What Car? says...

Thinking about going electric but don't want to shout it from the roof tops? The Peugeot e-208 could be the car for you.

That's because unlike many of its rivals, including the BMW i3, Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf, this isn't a bespoke electric vehicle (EV) that's designed to stand out from 'normal' petrol and diesel cars, it's just a Peugeot 208 with a big battery and an electric motor instead of an engine with cylinders and pistons.

The only real visual difference compared with petrol and diesel versions of the 208 is the discreet 'e' badging on the rear haunches of the car. And when you sit behind the wheel, you'll also notice a few electric-specific details on the driver display.

It’s even offered with the same trim levels – Active, Allure and GT Line – as its fossil-fuelled sisters, although the e-208 also gets a flagship GT trim level all to itself.

As its first EV, the e-208 represents a big move for Peugeot, and one that seems well-timed. Along with the closely related Vauxhall Corsa-e, there’s the premium Mini Electric plus the Volkswagen e-Up, Skoda Citigo iV and Seat Mii Electric triumvirate.

In our in-depth review, we'll be finding out how it compares with its electric rivals, so click through to the next page and start reading. And whichever car you end up deciding to buy, head over to our New Car Buying pages  – you could save thousands.
