Peugeot e-208 wins ‘Electric Small Car of the Year’ award at What Car? Electric Car Awards

JJ Burke Car Sales, Ballinrobe continue to be part of an award-winning team and this week is no different with the Peugeot e-208 Allure Premium named the ‘Electric Small Car of the Year’ at the inaugural What Car? Electric Car Awards, beating a host of rivals to the title, including Honda E.

The Peugeot e-208 is Peugeot’s first new generation full electric vehicle. It comes with an electric 50kWh, 136hp powertrain that’s capable of up to 217 miles of range (WLTP) from a single charge and supports rapid charging of up to 100kW, reaching 80 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes.

Joseph Burke, Dealer Principal, JJ Burke Car Sales said; “We are thrilled to see the Peugeot e-208 receiving this award. We knew ourselves when it was launched that it was going to be a very strong e-car and we were not wrong. It has a good real-world range, the suspension does a great job of keeping you comfortable, and the interior is as eye-catching as it is classy.”

“All things considered, the e-208 is the best small electric car you can buy” said What Car? Editor, Steve Huntingford. “We particularly like the Allure Premium version, because it's attractively priced, but still comes with loads of kit, including climate control, wireless phone charging and a 10.0in infotainment system with phone mirroring.”

David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, added that the company is following a unique philosophy around the ‘power of choice’ that allows buyers to choose the right powertrain that suits their needs and that Peugeot’s electric vehicles come with the same practical features as their petrol or diesel vehicle counterparts, with no compromise in capability, interior space or technology.

The Peugeot e-208 offers 100% Driving pleasure with a smooth drive, sharp acceleration, a silent engine and 0g CO2 emissions. Energy cost is considerably lower than fuel and the reduced maintenance makes costs even lower.

JJ Burke Car Sales have a range of Peugeot e-208’s available in their state of the art west of Ireland dealership. Call today to take this award-winning model out for a test drive!
