Peugeot tweaks e-208’s styling, trim levels and powertrain options in response to customer feedback.

Peugeot has detailed another batch of updates for the 2022 model year of its 208 and e-208, following on from last month’s announcement of range-boosting tweaks for the EV version. The model is under consideration for Australia, but not confirmed yet.

The 2022 Model Year e-208 benefits from an improved electric range as a result of a number of efficiency improvements. An interior humidity sensor located at the top of the windscreen is introduced, while the efficiency of the heat pump has improved, which together heat and cool the interior more effectively, resulting in improved electric range, particularly in cold weather. A mechanical development sees the introduction of a new gearbox ratio helping to optimise electric range at higher speeds, particularly on motorway journeys.

Visually, changes are more minor. Peugeot has added Diamond Black door mirror covers  for “a more distinctive sportier look”.

The mild revisions come after an update to the e-208 electric supermini which is claimed to unlock as much as 24km of extra range.
