The all-electric e-2008 is pretty difficult to distinguish from what Peugeot calls its 'thermic'-powered models, though brand loyalists might spot this EV variant's colour-coded front grille, subtle 'e'-badging and a more unusual 'Dichroic' finish for the lion badge that appears to change colour, depending on your viewing angle. Many versions of this model will be ordered in either 'GT-Line' or top 'GT'-spec, these two top variants recognisable by 'diamond black' roof colouring and glossy black wheel arch flares, which streamline the body, making the wheel diameter of the 18-inch wheel rims appear larger. On these premium versions, those rims are adorned with screw-in customisable inserts which improve the aerodynamics and apparently reduce kerb weight by 3.6kgs.
Inside, there's the usual 2008 'i-Cockpit' driving position format, where you view the instrument binnacle over the upper rim of a tiny steering wheel rather than conventionally through the wheel spokes. Plus, as with other versions of this model, the concept's been further developed with the addition of a clever 3D instrument binnacle display. What else? Well rear passenger space is much better than in an e-208 but still slightly compromised by the need to place the powertrain's battery pack beneath that back seat. Still, even with a six-foot tall driver up-front, someone of similar height could sit behind comfortably. The EV drive layout doesn't compromise boot space, which is 434-litres in capacity just like any other 2008 and extendable to 1,467-litres with the back seat folded.
