Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

The new Peugeot 208 supermini will cost from £16,250 when it arrives in UK showrooms early next year.

An all-electric e-208 version will also be available for the first time, priced from £25,050 after the Government’s £3,500 plug-in car grant has been deducted.

Both powertrains will be available in one of three trims, while the e-208 will also be offered in range-topping GT specification.

Standard equipment on all cars will include a multifunction steering wheel, head-up display and either a seven- or ten-inch colour touchscreen depending on the trim selected.

The e-208 matches a 50kWh battery to a 134hp electric motor. According to Peugeot, it should be able to travel up to 211 miles between charges, based on WLTP testing procedures. It supports 100kWh rapid charging, which can replenish the car’s batteries from 0-80% in 30 minutes. A full charge using a 7kW charger will take 7.5 hours.

A ‘charging pass’ provided with the electric supermini will allow owners to access certain UK public charging points through a free subscription for an introductory period.

   

Engine options for the regular 208 will be either a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 75, 100 or 130hp power outputs, and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine of 100hp.

The entry-level petrol will be combined with a five-speed manual transmission, the 100hp units with a six-speed manual while the 100 petrol will also be able to be specified with the eight-speed auto that comes as standard with the 130hp unit.
