The PEUGEOT e-208 has added another award to its trophy cabinet, scooping ‘Best EV Supermini’ at the 2021 Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards. This latest award brings the PEUGEOT e-208’s UK awards tally up to seven since launch, including prizes from Company Car Today and Company Car & Van already in 2021.
The PEUGEOT e-208 was praised for its stylish design, comfortable interior and impressive performance capabilities with a powerful electric motor.
The PEUGEOT e-208 was the first model introduced by PEUGEOT as part of its strategy to provide a fully electrified version of all models in the range by 2025. The supermini comes with an electric 50kWh battery connected to 100kW (136hp) zero-emissions powertrain. The PEUGEOT e-208 is capable of up to 217 miles WLTP* from a single charge, and when using a 100kW rapid charger, the e-208 can reach 0-80% within 30 minutes.
Martyn Collins, Editor of Fleet World, said: “Like the standard 208, the all-electric version of PEUGEOT’s supermini looks sharp inside and out. Designed for an EV drivetrain, the e-208’s interior is roomy and uncompromised by the battery pack. Furthermore, all versions are well-equipped, and feel well-made. The 136hp electric motor gives keen performance, yet it still offers an impressive range.”
Julie David, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK, said: “It is incredibly exciting to hear the news of the PEUGEOT e-208 being named Best EV Supermini in the 2021 Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards. The e-208 is an important model for everyone at PEUGEOT and has played a leading role our electrification strategy. Any recognition we receive is always a great honour, and we are proud to be able to offer fleet users a practical and well-designed model to meet their electric needs.”
Fleet World also highly commended the new PEUGEOT 5008 in the Best Fleet Large SUV category. As with the PEUGEOT e-208, Fleet World were impressed by the new 5008’s eye-catching design and its brilliant range of on-board technology and safety features, which include Night Vision, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Position Assist.
The judging panel also highlighted the powerful performance of the new PEUGEOT 5008, as well as its practical interior, making it one of the best seven-seaters on the market, with individual rear seats in the middle row, each with isofix, and plenty of legroom for all.

* The fuel consumption or electric range achieved, and CO2 produced (where applicable), in real world conditions will depend upon a number of factors including, but not limited to: the accessories fitted (pre and post registration); the starting charge of the battery (electric only); variations in weather; driving styles and vehicle load. The all-new e-208 is a battery electric vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. The WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure) is used to measure fuel consumption, electric range and CO2 figures. Figures shown are for comparison purposes and should only be compared to the fuel consumption, electric range and CO2 values of other cars tested to the same technical standard.
