The first 208 models were three door hatchbacks produced in November 2011, at the company's new plant in Slovakia.In June 2012, as five-door hatchbacks became available, production of the 208 also commenced at Peugeot's French plants at Mulhouse, and at Poissy.
The 208, developed under code name "A9", 173 kg (381 lb) (110 kg (243 lb) on average) compared with the 207 and still offer more space than the predecessor.is built on the PSA PF1 platform and the weight is to be reduced by
The boot offers 285 L (10 cu ft) (VDA) of space, 15 L (1 cu ft) more than the 207, and the leg room in the rear seat increases 5 cm (2 in). The design was led by Pierre Authier, with Sylvain Henry as exterior designer.
The interior design is by Adam Bazydlo, and the colour and trim is by Marie Sanou. The car features a tablet computer like screen, and panoramic glass roof surrounded by LED lights.The car is relatively aerodynamic with a drag coefficient, Cd, of 0.29.
All the petrol engines comply with the Euro 5 norm and the diesel engines have CO
2 emissions of 99 g/km or lower. In addition to the four cylinder petrol engines carried over from the previous model, from September 2012, the 208 has been offered with two new three cylinder units with variable valve timing – the 1.0 VTi (68 hp) and 1.2 VTi (82 hp).
The 1.0 comes with an advertised fuel consumption of 4.3 L/100 km (66 mpg‑imp; 55 mpg‑US), and a CO
2 emissions value of 99 g/km. A 1.2 L three cylinder is available with a turbocharger designated as the PureTech 110 S&S (available on the GT Line models and the allures) or without designated PureTech 82 S&S (available on the active, VTi, or XS).

This first GTi model has since been replaced by the 208 GTi by PeugeotSport which is directly derived from the limited edition '30ème Anniversaire Edition' which put out 208 bhp with revised suspension and an optional two tone paint job, along with a facelift of the original bumpers and other small changes.
The GTi's Prince engine is shared with the Mini and various Citroëns.

The second generation Peugeot 208 was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019, and officially went on sale across Europe over the summer.A fully electric version, named e-208, was also revealed at Geneva. The 208 offers a choice of powertrains, using conventional petrol or diesel engines, or an electric motor.
The drivetrains and platform of the 208 are shared with the Peugeot 2008, the DS 3 Crossback and Opel Corsa.The conventional petrol engines branded "PureTech" are all 1.2-litre, three-cylinder naturally aspirated EB2FA with 74bhp, or turbo EB2DT with 99bhp, or turbo EB2DTS with 128bhp, except the versions made in Argentina which use the 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated EC5 either petrol-only or ethanol-capable flex fuel for export to Brazil.
The diesel model will come in just one engine variant, a 1.5-litre four cylinder engine producing 73 kW (99 PS; 98 hp). Moroccan buyers have the option of the old 1.6 HDi engine producing 92 PS (68 kW; 91 hp). Peugeot have yet to announce the Sport models and what engine they will be using, such as the GTi which has been part of the family of the 208.
However, Guillaume Clerc, the project manager for the second generation 208, stated that development of a petrol 208 GTi ended in 2017, because it was impossible to meet the corporate average CO
2 emission targets with the larger 1.6-litre engine used in the previous generation 208 GTi. Clerc hinted the next GTi could be based on the e-208.
The 208 and e-208 are available with optional advanced driver-assistance systems, featuring adaptive cruise control, lane centering, automatic parking, and blind spot monitoring. Models equipped with a manual transmission feature cruise control down to a minimum speed of 18 mph (29 km/h); the automatic and e208 models can control the car down to a stop.
Unlike competing contemporary vehicles such as the Renault Zoe and Volkswagen ID.3, the e-208 shares a common chassis with the conventional petrol/diesel powered 208. Peugeot chose this deliberately to enable potential buyers to select the drivetrain that best suits their requirements.
This also allows Peugeot to assemble the e-208 on the same line as the 208, in Travna plant. 350 kg (770 lb) heavier, and has a slightly wider rear axle, to accommodate the battery pack.Compared to the conventionally powered versions of the 208, the e-208 is approximately
The e-208 has a heat-pump controlled 50 kWh battery, a 100 kW (136 PS; 134 hp) motor, and a 6.6 kW charger. WLTP range is 340 km (211 mi). It is equipped with a CCS Combo Type 2 connector, and can charge at a rate of up to 100 kW from a suitable DC fast charging station.
Charge rate can be 70kW up to 40% state of charge, then decreasing to 50kW. kW, but may be equipped with a three phase 11 kW charger as an option. In the e208, the gear selector is used to choose the level of regenerative braking.The onboard charger is limited to 7.4
Shortly after it went on sale in October 2019, demand for the e-208 was strong. Peugeot had anticipated making approximately 30,000 e-208 cars per year, 10% of the planned annual production of 300,000 for the entire 208 product line, but 1⁄4 of all preorders received were for the e208. Maximum production for the e-208 is 60,000 per year.
The electric e208 was voted "Most Desired Electric Car" in Macedonia at the Golden Steering Wheel awards at the beginning of 2021.
