The Peugeot 208 and 2008 or. their successors should only be available as electric car in the future. Since 2019, the French automaker Peugeot in the B-segment has the electric cars E-208 and its SUV offshoot E-2008 in the program.

  1. This was foreseeable. This is about 70 years old again. Goggomobil, Top0lino, Isetta, Renault Heck and the first Fiat 600 were overtaken by family cars such as the beetle, Opel-Olympia, Renault Dauphine, and the Fiat 1100 and the 3-cylinder DKW, and the hump Peugeot. Also electrically the small family should have room and the car must be inexpensive.

  2. It is already questionable if there is no favorable small cars anymore. A small car consumes less resources and for the buyers then only a used larger car remains.

  3. Beautiful detailed report with many new, interesting info! But I do not think there is landing gear differences at Peugeot GT. In general, the E-208 (also Active) will have a different vote and reinforced rear axle suspension. Gt and gt-line should actually only differ from the larger rims (17 “), which of course make them harder. In the documents of the Peugeot 208, however, nothing is.
