Peugeot EVs join AA Driving School fleet

Date: 03 March 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

AA Driving School has begun offering Peugeot E-208 and E-2008 vehicles to its instructors.

The EVs feature 50kWh batteries with official WLTP ranges of 225 miles and 214 miles respectively, said to be more than enough to cover an AA instructor's typical 120-mile day.

The AA predicts that by choosing an E-208 over its manual petrol equivalent, an instructor will reduce their annual tailpipe emissions by up to 5.7 tonnes of CO2, and could also benefit from a fuel cost saving of more than £2,600 per year.

AA Driving School interim managing director Mark Oakley said: "We're thrilled to be joining the electric revolution with Peugeot to offer our instructors two great EVs in the E-208 and E-2008. 

"We've had enormous interest from instructors and there is a real buzz among them to teach in the new cars. 

"We hope that learning in a great EV will help give power to a new generation of electric drivers."

Peugeot UK managing director Julie David said: "I'm pleased that Peugeot is able to work with the AA to offer its driving instructors two fully electric models to choose from - the fantastic E-208 and E-2008. 

"With the switch to electric vehicles well underway, many younger people's first experience of driving may be behind the wheel of an electric car. With ranges of over 200 miles, comprehensive safety equipment and i-Cockpit technology, the E-208 and E-2008 will offer a great driving experience for instructors and learners alike."
