The range for the Peugeot e-208 and e-2008 increases thanks to a series of updates technicians that allow to increase the efficiency of these cars. The French manufacturer is not; in fact intervened on the electric motor and on the battery. It is essentially the same news; also introduced on the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense which features the same powertrain. This suggests that these changes could also arrive on other electric models of the former PSA Group equipped with the 100 kW (136 HP) engine with a 50 kWh battery.

UP TO 25 KM MORE?

The first novelty concerns the introduction of new & ldquo; A + & rdquo; class tires that offer greater efficiency thanks to lower rolling resistance. On the e-208 we find a 16-inch version, while on the 17-inch e-2008. Furthermore, & egrave; A new transmission reduction ratio has also been introduced which optimizes autonomy when driving on the road and on the motorway.

The most great news, just like on the DS model, & egrave; the arrival of a new heat pump . Peugeot claims that the new heat pump, coupled to a humidity sensor; installed in the upper part of the windscreen, it optimizes the energy efficiency of the heating and air conditioning of the passenger compartment.

In fact, the information transmitted by the sensor allows to manage energy consumption with greater precision during the heating and temperature maintenance phases inside the vehicle. This is an advantage especially in the presence of very low outside temperatures. All these improvements have allowed the French manufacturer to achieve an improvement in autonomy of up to 25 km.

Specifically, the Peugeot e-208 (HERE in our test) can & ograve; count on an autonomy that reaches up to 362 km in the WLTP cycle, equal to a gain of 22 km compared to the previous value. The Peugeot e-2008, on the other hand, has a maximum mileage of up to 345 km (WLTP), that is; 25 km more than before.

The French brand, however, highlights above all the significant gains in real customer use, of the order of 40 km, in urban traffic conditions at temperatures close to zero . All the improvements will be applied to the cars at the beginning of 2022.
