Peugeot has announced increased official driving ranges for its electric E-208 and E-2008.
On the official WLTP test cycle, 2022 model year E-208s see their range on a single charge increased from 217 miles to 225 miles, while the maximum range of the E-2008 goes up from 206 miles to 218 miles.
Peugeot says the range improvements have been achieved through the fitting of tyres with lower rolling resistance, a new more efficient gearbox ratio, and a new heat pump with interior humidity sensor to optimise the energy efficiency of the models' heating and air conditioning systems.
Peugeot has also announced revised spec line-ups for both the 208 and 2008 ranges. They now consist of Active Premium, Allure Premium, GT, and GT Premium equipment grades, with the previous Allure grade having been dropped.
