This is why the electric Peugeot e-208 and e-2008 now have a longer range

Under the skin, the Peugeot e-208 and e-2008 are largely the same. They have a 136 hp and 260 Nm electric motor and get their power from a 50 kWh battery. Previously, the e-208 had a range of up to 340 kilometers on paper. Bigger brother e-2008 already stopped 20 kilometers earlier.

Peugeot e-208 and e-2008 are a maximum of 25 kilometers further

But that has now improved. According to Peugeot, the e-208 and e-2008 guarantee 362 and 345 kilometers respectively after a few upgrades. Note that this is a WLTP statement. In our field test, the actual range of the current e-2008 was more than 40 kilometers lower (at a constant speed of 100 km/h).

Tires with low rolling resistance and better heating / air conditioning

Nevertheless, Peugeot made good gains, mainly by installing tires with even lower rolling resistance and optimizing the efficiency of the heating and air conditioning. Peugeot also says that it has adjusted the transmission ratio.
