What Car? says...

Thinking about getting an electric car but don't want to shout it from the rooftops? The Peugeot e-208 could be the model for you.

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


  • Officially, the e-208 can do up to 224 miles on a full battery charge. Expect 145 to 175 miles in real-world driving, though. Read more here

  • Despite its evocative name, the GT version is no faster or more fun to drive than any other e-208. It's simply a trim level, and comes with lots of standard equipment. Read more here

  • The e-208 is 4055mm long, 1430mm tall and 1960mm wide (including door mirrors). It's a similar size to the Renault Zoe

  • The e-208 didn't feature in the 2022 What Car? Reliability survey (the sample size was too small), but Peugeot finished a disappointing 28th (out of 32 brands) in the overall manufacturer league table. Read more here

  • The e-208 is built on the same production line as the regular Peugeot 208 at the Trnava Plant in Slovakia.
