The PEUGEOT e-208 has been awarded the title of ‘Vehicle of the Year’ at the 2021 GREENFLEET Awards, in which GREENFLEET commented that it has made the largest impact in the UK fleet sector this year.
Celebrating innovation and environmental excellence across the fleet and transport sectors, the GREENFLEET Awards were held at the British Motor Museum in Warwick.
Being a new addition to the GREENFLEET list of accolades for 2021, the ‘Vehicle of the Year’ award recognises the car, van or truck that has made the largest impact on the UK fleet sector.
The e-208 scooped up the award due to its excellent range, affordable running costs and a stylish design that assists it in standing out on the road.
Featuring a 50kWh battery connected to a 100kW electric motor, the PEUGEOT e-208 can reach up to 217 miles from a single charge and supports up to 100kW rapid charging with 0-80% charge taking as little as 30 minutes.
Julie David, Managing Director, PEUGEOT, UK, commented: “We’re honoured that the PEUGEOT e-208 has been named winner of GREENFLEET’s first ever ‘Vehicle of the Year’ award. The e-208 has been incredibly popular since it first launched and has served as a base for our increasing developments with electrification.
“Fleet users are some of the most demanding customers in the industry, and the award goes a long way in recognising the high levels of build quality, reliability and everyday usability that forms the basis of each PEUGEOT model.”
In addition to this award, PEUGEOT was also shortlisted in Fleet Car Manufacturer, PHEV Manufacturer and EV Manufacturer of the Year categories.
