PEUGEOT'S all-electric e-208 supermini is getting a new powertrain, increasing its range by some 10.5 per cent.
It is the same set up the French car maker is using in its new and larger e-308 models.
With 10 per cent more power than before and a range of now 248 miles the motor develops 156hp - up from 136hp.
At the end of 2021, the Peugeot e-208 had already benefited from an initial technological development aimed at increasing its efficiency, which increased the range from 217 miles to 225 miles.
Since its launch and thanks to these two successive developments, the e-208 will now offer 17.65per cent more range and 15 per cent less energy consumption.
Peugeot says the changes are particularly noticeable at low temperatures where the latest power system includies a gain of 24 miles of range when in urban traffic at temperatures close to zero centigrade.
