The pure electric Peugeot e-2008 has won over the testers at consumer champions Which? by gaining coveted Best Buy status
Consumer champion Which? has awarded the Peugeot e-2008 Best Buy status for a winning combination of talents including low running costs.
In further validation of how cost-competitive EVs are becoming, Which? cited the e-2008’s low overall cost of ownership as a key factor behind its Best Buy award, alongside handling, reliability, comfort and design.
Which? even suggested the e-2008 EV may be a more compelling proposition than its petrol-engined 2008 sibling.
“The e-2008 builds on the stylish charm of its combustion counterpart and adds a refined (and potentially very cheap) drive,” said the experts.
“Its range is adequate for most journeys and there’s plenty of space inside, despite its relatively compact dimensions.”
Peugeot is well aware of the clout of Which?: with 1.35 million members, it is the UK’s largest consumer organisation.
Best Buy awards come after extensive research and include TVs, coffee machines… and of course cars.
“Only products that excel in their field are awarded the prestigious ‘Best Buy’ badge,” adds Which?
Julie David, Peugeot UK MD, said: “It is a great privilege to have our full electric Peugeot e-2008 named as a Which? Best Buy product.
“Recognition for the e-2008 is testament to the hard work that has gone into our electric range.
“We hope that the Which? Best Buy status will be an added incentive for drivers considering making the switch over to EV.”
Peugeot e-2008 prices start from £30,730 after the Plug-in Car Grant is taken off: Peugeot recently revised pricing to ensure the Active Premium, Allure and Allure Premium models remain eligible for the grant.
