For nothing, the latest generation Peugeot 208 won the 2020 European Car of the Year. So, it looks good, runs well, and comes packed with the new development gear. A few years ago in the standard subcompact segment, some of which were unheard of.
The e-208, which is the supermini’s electric version (that is the European term for sub-compacts), does all the ICE-powered versions do. The engine produces 134 hp and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) torque. From 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km / h) for a very respectable 8.1 second.
It has a WLTP range of 211 miles (340 km). Once the 50 kW battery exhausted, it can charge with the 100 kW quick charger in about 7 and a half hours at a wall box, or up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.

It has a modern feel, great build quality. Adequate room for two adults at the back and decent boot capacity for the part, from the interior.
