Peugeot 208 Car leasing
Are electric cars ever going to be affordable in the UK? The unbelievable success of electric cars in the UK has not been without critique or concern. Indeed, many customers looking for the best cheap fully electric cars to lease were often concerned by a limited choice and the expense; not every personal, business or salary sacrifice customer can afford an Audi, Mercedes or Tesla option.
Also added to this was the continued reduction in the Government’s plug-in grant which began at a generous £5000 and is now set at £1500 (at May 2022). But the good news is that Peugeot, who are fast becoming one of the leading cost-effective automotive manufacturers, are producing small electric hatchbacks and many of these do qualify for the grant which is in place.
Peugeot, forming part of the industry giants Stellantis, are now a force to be reckoned with in the world of BEVs; in 2021 the sister-company Vauxhall produced the UK’s 9th best-selling EV in the Corsa-e which accumulated some 5,500+ registrations. And Peugeot, with their dynamic and exciting hot hatch e-208, are not far behind on numbers.
Without question, for those customers enquiring about the perfect city-car or low-mileage (and cheap) EV, the Peugeot hatchback will be one to add to the list along with the Corsa-e, Renault Zoe and Fiat 500e. But is there enough within the e-208 range? Just look below to see some of the great specifications available:
There’s also a whole host of great extras to consider including the 11kW triphase upgrade (for quicker AC charging sessions), park assist, heated front seats and a panoramic glass sunroof. Simply use our leading EV website to configure your electric Peugeot.
But can small cars really deliver a positive driving experience? The concern for many UK personal and business lease customers is that the battery capability and technology will not deliver an enjoyable result. But in using our “Living with your …” tools, you soon understand just how and what each electric car can deliver, meaning you never choose something which isn’t suitable for your needs and requirements.
Taking the 208 electric the vehicle adopts a 45 kWh usable lithium battery which delivers 100 kW (or 134hp) for 0 – 62 times of 8.1 seconds and 93 mpg top speeds. On a full charge the car will operate at around 145 miles in colder weather (combined) and a comprehensive 205 miles in warmer weather (combined). For charging, a standard car will take just over 7 hours on the 7.4 kW AC maximum from 0 – 100% with the 101 kW DC rapid charging capability providing 10 – 80% times of 25 minutes.
Where the 208 really has the chance to shine is with some of the younger drivers in the UK. Many of the younger generation are seeing the green benefits with electric motoring and are adopting EVs in anticipation of a cleaner and more environmentally friendly future. With Clean Air Zones, emission-based charging and a push in company cars / fleets to zero-emissions, the e-car lease team expect many under 30s to abandon the combustion proportion.
