Peugeot is getting set to unveil an all-new 208 hatch at the Geneva Motor Show.

e-208 can also be remotely charged if programed via the Connected Navigation screen or using the MyPeugeot smartphone application.
This system also enables you to start or stop charging at any time and allows you to check the charge status.
