Peugeot was founded in 1810 in Eastern France (Sochaux), and has a rich heritage in motor racing and the broader automotive sector. Peugeot has won many awards for its passenger cars, to include, six European Car of the Year awards. As part of the broader Groupe PSA, Peugeot is very committed to the electric vehicle (EV) sector. The company’s portfolio of battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) i.e. pure electric vehicles, include:
- New Peugeot e-2008
- New Peugeot e-208

The automotive company also develops and sells plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), to include the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid, Peugeot 508 Hybrid and the Peugeot 508 SW Hybrid models.

The All-Electric New Peugeot e-208
The Peugeot pure electric e-208 hails from the Peugeot 208 supermini portfolio, first unveiled at the Geneva Motors Show in 2012. The second generation 208 was unveiled by the French automotive manufacturer in 2019, at the Geneva Motor Show. At the same time, the company also unveiled the all-electric e-208 hatchback supermini. Peugeot has retained ‘familiarity’ with the design, for the e-208 all-electric hatchback. The battery electric vehicle (BEV) is very similar to its sibling petrol and diesel internal combustion engine (ICE) cars.
The pure electric e-208 comes with 3 driving modes: Sport, Normal and Eco. The Eco gives priority to range, while the Sport gives priority to performance (0-60 mph: 8.1 seconds). The Normal mode is for everyday use.
