Peugeot will increase the range of its city electrician. According to the information that appeared on the Worldscoop forum, the e-208 will travel up to 400 kilometers on a single charge, but only in the new basic equipment version.
In November 2021 Peugeot introduced a few changes to its small electronics, which, according to the manufacturer, contributed to increasing the range to 25 km. Modifications included the use of tires with less rolling resistance, an improvement in the reduction gear ratio and the introduction of a new heat pump for the model, which works with a moisture sensor mounted above the windshield. All this allowed the Peugeot e-208 to have an autonomy of 362 km in the WLTP cycle.

The new Peugeot e-208 will undergo another upgrade that will allow it to reach up to 400 kilometers with the electrician. However, the range is not used for a combined cycle, but for city driving. The French brand will achieve the goal in a simple way – it will add the Like version to the e-208 series, which, thanks to slimmer equipment and fewer options, will be able to go further than models from the upper parts of the price list.
According to information seen on the Worldscoop platform, the Peugeot e-208 will debut on the French market in September this year. I wonder if it will also join the Polish offer. In the current e-208 lineup, the Like variant is only available with the 1.2 PureTech 75 hp unit and is likely to spoil you with the device. The car has 15-inch wheels with hubcaps, a 5-inch monochrome touchscreen and traditional analog clocks.

In 2023, Peugeot 208 and e-208 will undergo further changes. The model will undergo a facelift and the electric version will receive a new power unit produced by Emotors (a joint venture between Nidec and Stellantis). However, the engine will first join the range of DS Automobiles and the new DS 3 E-Tense, which is expected to enter service later this year.
