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.
