When exactly the upcoming generation of electric cars should appear in the B segment, the Peugeot boss did not reveal.

For models 208 and 2008, the electrical component of all sold vehicles has meanwhile with more than 14 percent, at 3008, the plug-in variant would have a share of 27 percent. In 2020, every tenth Peugeot was electrified.
For smaller vehicles of the A-Segment, however, the electrification hardly rewind itself, so IMPARATO further: “If you add an electric drive plus connectivity plus 5G plus Euroncap plus other regulations in the A-Segment, this is due to the affordability of mobility” , Such the Peugeot boss. From the currently 10.000 Euro, which cost a 108, then quickly 30.000 Euro, said Imparato.

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.
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.
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.
