Are you sure you'll get the full benefit from the larger battery ? My son has just ordered an e208 which apparently shares the same sort of battery but we were told that it has a much larger unused margin then I'm used to with Nissan. Also seemed rather strange that the much bigger e2008 wouldn't have a much bigger battery !
I used to have a B250e which is about the same size and weight as the E2008. The Peugeot's battery is 50% bigger. If I extrapolate my worst, best and average range from the B250e I get worst 120 miles, best 195 miles and average 150 miles for the e2008. which. passes my 120 mile test, just. If the e2008 disappoints when it's available for test I'll cancel the order. Tomorrows 24 hour test drive of the Leaf 40 is well timed

Just back from the 24 hour test drive of the 40 Leaf. Did my 120 mile regular run up and down the A12, got back with 3%. I drove back into 40 MPH south westerly storm with rain and got 3.4 miles per kWh, 4 on the way up. Kept to 60 MPH with climate at 20C. As owners predicted it would be pushing it in winter, so decided it had to be the 62. Whilst I still had the Leaf I drove the Peugeot e208 again. Did long drive in e208 on M25 first leg 60 MPH, eco mode, climate control 21C and 7C outside = 4 miles per kWh. Second leg 70 MPH, comfort mode, climate control 21C and 7C outside =3.2 miles per kWh. I'd say it's the best EV I driven, up with the Model 3. Signed Contract hire agreement for e2008 GT.
