Peugeot is the latest car maker to offer an extra £500 towards all-electric car purchases following the Government announcement it would reduce the current Plug-in Car Grant from £3,500 to £3,000 from 12 March onwards.

The French car maker said it has pledged to make up the shortfall in funding, by offering its new full electric range with an extra £500 support, on all orders and registrations before 31 March.

Its decision follows on from Renault and MG announcing similar schemes last week with Renault’s MD, Vincent Tourette, saying its offer is being rolled-out “in order to support customers who were considering a new electric car this month and had perhaps considered that they would be eligible for the £3,500 Plug-in Car Grant.”

Peugeot’s offer is available for its e-208 model and e-2008 SUV, which is now open for order in preparation for commercial launch on the 23rd April 2020.

The e-208 is powered by a 50kWh battery and a 136hp electric motor, and is capable of up to 217 miles from a single charge under WLTP testing..

Peugeot added it is also offering all of its electric buyers a free Pod Point home charging unit along with a six-month subscription to Chargemaster’s public network, Polar Plus.
