Peugeot cuts e-2008 prices on back of Plug-in Grant changes

Peugeot has lowered prices across its e-2008 range while also providing enhanced deposit contributions for the e-208, helping to compensate for the Plug-in Car Grant changes.

The reduced prices on the e-2008 range help compensate for the Plug-in Car Grant changes and ensure Allure Premium models continue to get the subsidy

A reduction of £450 on all e-2008 versions means the OTR pre-grant price now falls to £33,230 for the Active Premium, £34,430 for the Allure, £34,880 for the Allure Premium, £37,180 for the GT and £39,180 for the GT Premium.

The changes mean mid-spec Allure Premium models continue to qualify for the Plug-in Car Grant, which now sets a price ceiling of £35k and has been reduced from £3,000 to £2,500. However, GT and GT Premium models are no longer eligible.

Peugeot is also offering an additional £500 support in deposit contribution on PCP contracts and cash purchases throughout March, while customer savings of £500 have been applied to its Pride offers and Personal and Business contract hire agreements on all e-208 models, helping to match the previous £3,000 government subsidy.

Julie David, managing director of Peugeot UK, said: “The Plug-in Car Grant has helped many make the switch to electric vehicles, and we have ensured our electric cars remain eligible for the grant. The revised pricing of the e-2008 and increased deposit contribution for the e-208 are further evidence of our commitment to electrification with our goal to offer an electrified variant across our entire model line-up by 2025.”
