With revised pricing for all e-2008 models and enhanced deposit contributions for the e-208 range, Peugoet is latest manufacturer to respond to the recent overhaul of the UK Government’s Plug-in Car Grant.
This move follows Citroen, Vauxhall and Kia who have adjusted their prices.
The grant has been reduced to £2,500 and is now only available on new electric vehicles costing less than £35,000.
PEUGEOT has reduced list prices across the entire e-2008 range to ensure customers can continue to benefit from the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG). 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.
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 our Pride offers and 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.
