Recognised for its low running costs, impressive range and high levels of technology, the PEUGEOT e-208 has won the ‘Erin Baker’ award at the fifth-annual Auto Trader New Car Awards.
The ‘Erin Baker’ award is based on the personal recommendation of Auto Trader’s editorial director and award-winning motoring journalist, Erin Baker.
New for 2021, the winner of the ‘Erin Baker’ award is determined by how well a vehicle combines its sustainable credentials and design in an overall package.
Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, commented: “For me, the best cars out there this year combine sustainable credentials with cool design, in a smart package. I believe the PEUGEOT e-208 is a genuine standout success in 2021 thanks to its sporty, chunky exterior styling and a subtle, beautiful interior.”
“It’s electric, which means low running costs, but it doesn’t leave you with range anxiety thanks to a healthy range on one charge. It’s reasonably priced, with low running costs and is oh so easy to park. Peugeot really nailed it with this perfectly formed little car.”
Featuring a 50kWh battery connected to a 100kW electric motor, the PEUGEOT e-208 is capable of up to 217 miles from a single charge.
The PEUGEOT E-208 also supports up to 100kW rapid charging with an 80% charge taking just 30 minutes.
Julie David, Managing Director, PEUGEOT, UK, commented: “From launch, the PEUGEOT e-208 has impressed both buyers and industry experts with its sharp design, zero emissions range and its high level of technology and features.”
“Despite new rivals arriving on the market, the PEUGEOT e-208 continues to impress, and we are proud to receive the ‘Erin Baker’ award from Auto Trader.”
