Prices have been lowered across the Peugeot e-2008 range in response to the recent changes to the Government’s Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG), which has been reduced to £2,500 and is now only available on new electric vehicles costing less than £35,000.
A reduction of £450 on all versions mean Active Premium, Allure and Allure Premium models remain eligible for the new grant.
Prices after the Plug-in Car Grant for the Active Premium now start from £30,730, while Allure models start from £31,930 and Allure Premium variants from £32,380.
The Peugeot e-2008 GT costs £37,180 and the Peugeot e-2008 GT Premium costs £39,180, so these two models are still not eligible for the grant.
Throughout March, Peugeot is also offering an additional £500 support in deposit contribution on PCP contracts and cash purchases. In addition, further customer savings of £500 have been applied to Personal and Business contract hire agreements on all e-208 models. In combination with the £2,500 PiCG this brings the total deduction to £3,000, matching the Government’s previous subsidy.
Julie David, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “The Plug-in Car Grant has helped many make the switch to electric vehicles, and we have ensured our electric cars remain eligible for the grant. The revised pricing of the e-2008 and increased deposit contribution for the e-208 are further evidence of our commitment to electrification with our goal to offer an electrified variant across our entire model line-up by 2025.”
Both the Peugeot e-208 and e-2008 are powered by a 50kWh battery and a 136hp electric motor. The e-208 is capable of up to 217 miles on a single charge, while the larger e-2008 achieves up to 206 miles under WLTP testing. Easy-to-use three mode charging means both can be charged in just 7.5 hours using a 7kW wallbox, while 100kW rapid charging can restore 80 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes.
