Peugeot e 208 sedan reviews

Adapted to the city dweller with daily averages largely less than 10 km per day silence no smell of long -term fuel requiring another vision of automotive travel. You must not have an hourly imperative. You have to prepare your trip. In particular, do not rely on a single charging station in the stage sector (breakdown or disappearance of the terminal, bad arrows on site with a full countryside terminal close to a hvolting transformer; frequent absence of toilets nearby. Good coverage of the territory.

More fuel silence obligation of a calm driving equivalent to see more nervous than a heat engine

Habitability storage insufficient autonomy still insufficient to travel on the highway as with thermal vehicles

Very pleasant to use with a relatively low cost of use.

Very pleasant driving.

Longevity of seriously shortened tires from the important torque, including with “cool” driving.

Lack of autonomy. Traction of an impossible trailer. High car price

The too low autonomy, terminals, vehicle delivered without cables T2/T3 is responsible for the customer.

Worse than hell is an experience of life that I do not wish to anyone. – The car broke down without explanation, and the Peugeot insurer left us in Rad by not knowing how to explain the breakdown. – She does not always load, and we do not know why – she overheats when it is hot outside (as much to say that with global warming, it should soon be about to melt) – the radio cannot be increased S ‘ It is more than 27 outside – the air conditioning blows hot air (this car has really not been created to face the years to come) – the tires are fragile (recognized by our dealer) and create all the two months – in short. I no longer have savings and I am very hot.

It is clearly a prototype, nothing is going

Disappointed by the real distance that can be traveled, time to recharge the batteries, the fact that radio, headlights, hot or cold air conditioning, also impact on batteries and that recharge by rolling and very very low, it does not Not allow a more kilometers. It’s a very good second car for proximity, but not for miles.

Very pleasant, no noise, good recovery, and the automatic transmission

Battery life, time to recharge them, and especially the price

Regularly at the top of the sales podium for new electric cars in France, the Peugeot E-208 is a dynamic car and pleasant to drive. Only downside, limited autonomy for this big Watts consumer.

Presentation

In March 2019, on the occasion of the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot (Stellantis group) caused a sensation with its new 208 restyled for the occasion and with its E-208, electric first of the brand-if we put aside The 1941 VLV.

The 208 and the E-208 were then crowned car of the year 2020.

While waiting for a next generation of 208 and 2008 which would be all electric in 2025, we come back here in more detail on the E-208.

Unlike its closest rival, the Renault Zoe, the Peugeot E-208 was not created from a white sheet.

Cohabitating with petrol and diesel engines, the E-208 is one more alternative engine that enters the brand’s strategy, called Power of Choice.

Like the classic 208, the E-208 electric version is available with practically all the nine finishes in the catalog-except the like-, including the high-end GT of our test model. This is billed from € 36,400. For information, the entry -level Active is marketed from € 32,800 against € 37,400 for the GT Pack, the highest end. The prices announced are out of an ecological bonus of € 6000.

Ergonomics and design

Sampled. This is what characterizes the design of the Peugeot E-208, whose aggressive gaze is exacerbated by luminous fangs and a ribbed hood, associated with an XXL grille made up of thousands of facets, adorned in its middle by the lion logo To bluish reflections. This lioness gives the impression of wanting to devour asphalt.

The rear is not to be outdone, with this black banner which barks the whole width of the trunk and which integrates at each end of the lights, or rather of the “claws” which overflow on each side of the bodywork. In short, it gives the impression of a nerve ball on four wheels.

Compared to its rival, the Renault Zoe, this athletic side and picked up from the Peugeot E-208 is found at the dimensions: 4.05 x 1.43 x 1.74 m against 4.08 x 1.56 x 1, 78 m for the zoe.

Level finishes, our Peugeot E-208 GT is average, with a long dashboard composed of a material pleasant to the touch, as well as a carbon imitation plating in the lower part. Nevertheless, we regret the presence of hard plastic at the level of the offices and the low parts.

Fortunately, the presence of the famous i-Cockpit, characterized by a small sport steering wheel, brings a little futuristic side. Nevertheless, this technological innovation, which has revolutionized the habitacles of other models of the brand, can be restrictive for large templates, which will find it difficult to find the right compromise in terms of visibility. Indeed, the position of the steering wheel hides part of the 3D instrument handset – standard on the GT and GT Pack finishes. To maintain good visibility, it is necessary to lower the steering wheel or adjust the seat in the high position – not ideal position for more than 1.80 m. In the low and flying position, said combination of instruments is partly hidden as soon as the steering wheel is turned.

The E-208-which is based on the same platform as the classic 208-is 8 cm longer than the previous version. But that does not facilitate the entry or exit to the rear seats of large templates due to a plunging roof line and the cutting of the doors.

Rear habitability is not a model of its kind: the central tunnel is too prominent and the width contained does not leave room for the legs.

As for the volume of the trunk, it varies from 311 l to 405 l, folded seats. These do not offer a flat floor. On the other hand, a sub-placher can accommodate the charging cables.

Comfort and equipment

What makes the attraction of E-208, in addition to its line is the interface of the instrument handset (7 inch) located behind the steering wheel, which incorporates 3D effects. From an order at the wheel, you can choose one of the 7 screens, one of which is devoted to road navigation.

So when we are driving, information appears by superimposing – no more than two at a time; The most important being put forward, with a focus on alert messages whose color goes from orange to red according to the degree of emergency. This holographic effect is not only there to be beautiful, it allows the driver to be more reactive, according to Peugeot, and to win half a second, 15 meters when the vehicle is launched at 100 km/h.

But the part of choice remains the central touch screen of 10.25 inch (diagonal of 26.03 cm) as standard on the Roadtrip, GT and GT Pack versions. The other versions having to be satisfied with a 7 inch (diagonal of 17.78 cm).

Slightly turned towards the driver, this touch screen is piloted to choose from your fingers or from a series of touch controls (shortcuts). Aligned in the row of onions, they are positioned above the piano keys-also called “Toggle Switches” (in metal).

Despite this large screen, the interface is no longer on page and poorly thought out, especially compared to recent competition models whose scheme reproduces the screen of a smartphone. All this is not very ergonomic, starting with the time setting. Air conditioning and heating are no exception to all touch, with the obligation to go through the screen to change the temperature, despite the famous Toggle Switches.

Finally, if navigation makes it possible to view the charging stations around you – a touch of direct access would have been welcome – we would have appreciated a Trip Planner, This function which allows electric vehicles to plan a route taking into account stops on charging stations.

Good point on the other hand for the closing valve of the induction charging compartment (option at 100 €) arranged under the Toggle Switches. Deployed, the latter allows you to accommodate a smartphone, vertically or horizontally. On both sides of the said compartment, a USB-C port is only used to recharge, while its USB-A counterpart allows you to connect your smartphone to access Apple Carplay or Android Auto. Wireless mode is not yet on the agenda. Rear passengers also benefit from two USB-A sockets for recharging.

Connectivity and application

Like any automotive manufacturer tending towards modernity, Peugeot provides a free mobile application (iOS and Android) called, Mypeugeot. It offers a set of functions such as preheating, load programming, geolocation or access to the on -board computer. In short, that basic.

Ruling and performance

Under the engine hood of the E-208 is hidden a permanent synchronous electric magnet motor developing 100 kW (136 hp) of maximum power for a torque of 260 Nm and a speed of 150 km/h. This engine is powered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 50 kWh (useful capacity 46.4 kWh) and cooled by glycol. Its “H” shape in the floor allows you to lower the center of gravity to offer dynamic driving while remaining sure. It must be admitted that the Peugeot E-208, as electric as it is, encourages-a little-ignoring the efficiency for the benefit of the pleasure of the driving. Its chassis carries the historic genes of Peugeot’s know-how and knows how to remain incisive.

Question recovery, our lioness returns promptly with each turn out or simply when it comes to surpassing. Of course, everything will depend on the driving mode chosen from three offered (Eco, normal and sport). The first limits power to 60 kW (82 hp), just to preserve the autonomy. The second (80 kW – 109 hp) is a mixture between driving and efficiency. As for the third, it allows you to take advantage of all the available power.

Nevertheless, with this last mode, it will be better to temper his ardor. It must be said that with 1455 kg on the scale, 297 kg more than the petrol version 130 Puretech, the front easily tends to drop out, especially when the road is wet. Consequently, traction control is constantly on alert.

In addition to these three driving modes, a mode B (BRAKE) can be activated from the automatic transmission to recover a little energy at raising the accelerator. The result is quite mixed. Indeed, the deceleration will be less depending on whether your battery is full or not.

In the same way as the thermal version, our E-208 GT is full of driving aids. There is an adaptive cruise control coupled with the Stop & Go function (stop and restart) and help to keep the track. Serial equipment on the GT Pack and which costs € 900 on the Takes Pack and Roadtrip versions, against € 400 for the GT (our test vehicle).

Parking aid is available in the Visio Park 1 pack including graphic and sound parking aid and a rear view camera. It is standard on the GT Pack version, but billed € 260 for the TAP, TAPE PACK and ROADTRIP versions. As for the parking assistant (Assist parking) which automatically manages steering, braking and acceleration for an input or location output, it is only available on the GT Pack at a price of € 360.

Note that the traditional regulator/limiter is standard on other versions, except Active Pack, Allure Pack and Roadtrip which offer it as an option.

Autonomy and recharge

Despite a substantial battery of 50 kWh-46.4 kWh useful-our Peugeot E-208 does not miracle in terms of autonomy. We stay far from the 340 km WLTP. During our trial on more than 300 km, our on -board computer recorded a mixed consumption of 15 kWh/100 km (13 kWh/100 km in town, 19.5 kWh/100 km on the road and 25.4 kWh/100 km on a highway); this in good weather and a temperature of about 11 ° C.

In town, no problem, the autonomy reaches 350 km. On the other hand, on the national roads and highways, it sees at 235 and 180 km of autonomy respectively.

On the recharging side, our Peugeot E-208 has a type 2 socket as well as a CSS combo connector for a quick load (up to 100 kW) to recover 80 % autonomy in 30 minutes. In the case of recharge from a domestic socket (3.7 kW), count 16 hours. On the other hand, from a wallbox, the charger on board at 7.4 kW (single -phase) offers a charging time of 7 h 30 min, or 5 hours if you opt for the 11 kW (three -phase), a billed option 400 €.
