PEUGEOT e-2008 AWARDED WHICH? BEST BUY STATUS

 

The PEUGEOT e-2008 has been awarded ‘Best Buy’ status by leading consumer expert Which?. The ‘Which? Best Buy’ status comes after the full electric PEUGEOT e-2008 impressed the jurors in a road test that highlighted the car’s stylish design, low running costs and host of safety kit as standard.



Within their review, the Which? team assessed the full electric PEUGEOT e-2008 against strict criteria, looking at factors including road handling, reliability, comfort and how economical the car is to run.

 

Launched commercially in 2020, the PEUGEOT e-2008 was the second full electric model to be introduced as part of PEUGEOT’s electrification strategy to provide a fully electrified range by 2025.

 

The PEUGEOT e-2008 is built with a 100kW 136hp electric motor and a 50kWh battery, capable of up to 206 miles of zero emissions range (WLTP) from a single charge. Using 100kW rapid charging, an 80% charge takes as little as 30 minutes. The model features PEUGEOT’s award-winning 3D i-Cockpit® with a compact multifunction steering wheel, a configurable 3D head-up display panel and either a seven or 10-inch HD capacitive colour touchscreen.

 

The model comes fitted with the latest advanced technologies, including PEUGEOT Connect SOS and Assistance, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Lane Positioning Assist and Mirror Screen® with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto connectivity. In addition, via the MyPEUGEOT App, battery charging and vehicle cabin pre-conditioning can be managed remotely via the e-remote control.

 

Which? said: “The e-2008 builds on the stylish charm of its combustion counterpart and adds a refined (and potentially very cheap) drive. Its range is adequate for most journeys and there’s plenty of space inside, despite its relatively compact dimensions.”

 

Which? is the UK’s largest consumer organisation, with 1.35 million members and supporters. Each month Which? provides updates on its ‘Best Buy’ products after extensive, independent tests on hundreds of products, from TVs to coffee machines. Which? looks at every aspect of the product’s performance and measure it against strict criteria, along with input from scientists that match how consumers use the product in the real world. Only products that excel in their field are awarded the prestigious ‘Best Buy’ badge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Julie David, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK, said: “It is a great privilege to have our full electric PEUGEOT e-2008 named as a Which? Best Buy product. As one of the UK’s leading consumer champions, Which? is an expert at identifying the best products for customers, and recognition for the e-2008 is testament to the hard work that has gone into our electric range. We hope that the Which? Best Buy status will be an added incentive for drivers considering making the switch over to EV.”

 

Following the recent government announcement to cut the Plug-in Car Grant to £2,500, PEUGEOT revised its pricing for a selection of e-2008 models to reinforce the brand’s commitment to affordable electrification. A reduction of £450 means Active Premium, Allure and Allure Premium models remain eligible for the new grant, with prices starting from £30,730 following the Plug-in Car grant.

 

The PEUGEOT e-2008 is available to order from PEUGEOT Retailers and via PEUGEOT Buy Online, where customers can configure and order their vehicle entirely online. PEUGEOT Buy Online reinforces PEUGEOT’s new brand promise of creating quality experiences for customers and ensuring their time is well-spent, by making purchasing a car online simple and convenient. Customers can configure their vehicle, obtain a part exchange valuation, personalise their finance and complete their purchase, all from the comfort of their home.
