Peugeot: More Reach for E-208 and E-2008-peugeot

The automotive company Stellantis advertises with more range for two of its electric Peugeot models. That’s out of a message. For the 100% electric versions of Peugeot 208 and Peugeot 2008, there are therefore new technological developments from the beginning of 2022 additional 22 kilometers in the WLTP cycle – in normal city traffic, it should be up to 40 kilometers more after factory information.

As stated in Stellantis, a part of the increase is based on the change to tires with quality class A+. A lower rolling resistance thus ensures greater efficiency. This concerns the 16 inch alloy wheels for the Peugeot E-208 and the 17 inch alloy wheels for the Peugeot E-2008. Second substantial innovation is a mechanical development with a new transmission ratio. This reduces power consumption at higher speeds lowered and the range are optimized especially when driving on clamps streets and highways.

Electricity is saved internally. A new heat pump in conjunction with a moisture sensor attached at the top of the windshield optimized by manufacturer’s energy efficiency of heating and air conditioning. The information transmitted by the sensor thus enable a more precise control of the circulating air in the interior. This protects the energy consumption of the battery during heating and ensures the maintenance of the temperature in the interior of the vehicle. This improvement is particularly noticeable at low outside temperatures, it says at Stellantis.

The Peugeot E-208 (equipped with a 50 kWh battery and a 100 kW electric motor as well as a torque of 260 nm) offers a maximum range of 362 kilometers in the future, according to the manufacturer’s information with the innovations, which is identically motorized E-2008 then up to 342 kilometers.

The Peugeot E-208 and the Peugeot E-2008 came to the market at the end of 2019 and are according to the manufacturer with more than 90.000 produced vehicles an important pillar in the brand’s electrification strategy. Battery and powertrain are also identical in other E models of the Stellantis Group. You should also benefit from the improvements in the future.

  1. Range enlargement OK. However, the E-208 has to come over 400 km so that he leaves the Renault Zeo behind. With the small car and lower middle class the sound wall must be broken 400 km (WLTP). Unfortunately, the NEFZ is still in the flyers ?!
