Electric Peugeot e-208 now cheaper than regular Peugeot 208

Electric cars are expensive. You can buy a Peugeot 208 with a petrol engine from 18,900 euros, but for an electric Peugeot e-208 you will lose at least 31,950 euros. The government subsidy of 4000 euros (which has not been available since the beginning of January) cannot do much about this. During the Electric Days gives Peugeot 4000 euro trade-in advantage on the e-208, so that makes a little difference. A Peugeot e-208 Active Pack thus costs 29,200 euros (33,200 euros – 4000 euros). A comparable Peugeot 208 Active Pack 1.2 Puretech EAT8 (with automatic transmission) 24,880 euros.

Peugeot e-208 cheaper in the private lease

In the private lease, the electric Peugeot e-208 is slightly more expensive than a comparable 208. It saves 20 euros per month in favor of the petrol car (365 versus 345 euros). But that doesn’t contain the fuel yet, of course. If you take that into account, the e-208 will save you 20 euros per month (408 compared to 428 euros). All other costs are covered in a private lease construction, such as road tax, insurance, maintenance, etc.

Electric car does not reach its specified range

The only problem is: Peugeot’s calculation example is based on the WLTP consumption of both cars. And that consumption is a lot less favorable in practice. We have not yet had a Peugeot e-208 in our range test, but the technically identical Opel Corsa-E. According to the WLTP statement, it should be able to reach a range of 337 kilometers. At a constant speed of 100 km / h on the motorway, this remains 295 kilometers. If you are going to drive 130 km / h, then you have to be at the charging station after 195 kilometers.

Peugeot e-2008 in our range-of-action test

The Peugeot e-2008 – on which Peugeot also offers a 4000 euro discount – has the same powertrain. In our action range test, the 136 hp SUV did not reach its specified range of 320 kilometers. At 100 km / h, 278 kilometers remain and at 130 km / h only 193 kilometers. At least, if you put the powertrain of the Peugeot e-2008 in its Eco mode. Then he limits the power of the electric motor to 81 hp. The e-2008 is available from 36,930 euros.
