PEUGEOT has improved the driving range of its electric e-208 while revealing a series of updates across the entire 208 range.
The changes include revised trim levels and styling revisions.
From the start of 2022, technology updates will increase the range of the e-208 to 225 miles - up from 211 miles.
Active Premium and the Allure Premium versions of the e-208 remain eligible for the plug-in car grant, attracting £1,500 in support from the government and see them now priced from £28,225 and £29,525 respectively.
The French car maker is also streamlining the trim levels across the 208 and e-208 range, with the 2022 PEUGEOT 208 and e-208 available in Active Premium, Allure Premium, GT and GT Premium.
Allure variants are no longer available.
Changes to powertrain choices see GT Premium variants fitted exclusively with 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engines alongside the fully electric e-208 GT Premium variant.
The PureTech 100 is now available only with a six-speed manual gearbox in GT Premium trim, with an eight-speed Efficient Automatic Transmission available on the more powerful PureTech 130 engine.
Cosmetic updates include black door mirror covers being introduced on Active Premium and Allure Premium.
The increased range of the e-208 comes from of a number of efficiency improvements including an interior humidity sensor located at the top of the windscreen while the heat pump has also been improved.
There's also a new gearbox ratio helping to optimise electric range at higher speeds, particularly on motorway journeys.
As a further efficiency measure across the entire range of petrol, diesel and electric Active Premium and Allure Premium 208s will also be fitted with low rolling resistance tyres.
