New Peugeot 208 revealed

Recommended Posts

Peugeot's finally taken the wraps off the new 208 ahead of its public debut at the Geneva motor show. Switching to the new Common Modular Platform makes this 30Kg lighter than the car it replaces. It will come with a petrol 1.2-litre tuned for 75hp (with a five-speed manual), 100hp (six-speed manual) or 130hp (eight-speed automatic); a 100hp 1.5-litre diesel (six-speed manual) + a 136bhp electric powertrain. 

Peugeot claims the electric 208 will have a range of up to around 340Km thanks to a 50kWh battery, which can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes. 

Here's a quick walkaround:
