Peugeot E-208 Review

It’s fun and futuristic – so surely it makes sense as an electric car?

The Peugeot 208 is a great little car. Reasonably practical for its size, the best built that Peugeot’s have ever been, featuring a futuristic dashboard and instrument panel that would shame a Lamborghini, sensible economy and an engaging and fun drive that works hard to make you think it’s a hot hatch – there isn’t really one in the range yet.

Bored!! Going Live While Charging an EV [with Partha Srinivasan]

Things got a bit silly when I went InstaLive yesterday

After recording the drive section of my review of the all-electric Peugeot E-208, I had obviously depleted the mileage range. I decided to give it a full charge. That meant sitting in the Morrison’s car park at a Genie Point charger for an hour. So I went live online. And ended up with a guest – my good buddy Partha in India.

Peugeot 2008 SUV Review

It’s the compact SUV brother to the 208 – but should you get this instead?

The Peugeot 2008 was not released in 2008 as some have suggested… er… the ‘00’ is part of Peugeot’s SUV taxonomy.

Review: Peugeot 508 GT 225 EAT 8

We haven’t had a saloon this sexy since the 406 from the mid-90s

Remember the Peugeot 405 from the late 1980s? That was a sharp looking car with clean bold lines and a meaty stance. It was followed up by the 406 in the mid-90s, which took the same silhouette but stretched it out and made it sexier still – plus there was a two-door coupe version. Omigod! Are you kidding me? Did Ferrari misplace its blueprints? That was one seductive Pug, slinky and seductive. Sadly Peugeot peaked with that car, and we’ll now jump over the 407 and even the first generation of the French car makers new player in the segment, the 508.
