Onto orders 600 e-cars from Peugeot

UK electric car subscription service Onto is adding 600 more electric cars to its fleet this month. The new additions are all from Peugeot and include 300 each of the e-208 and e-2008.

Both models rely on the familiar e-drive of the Stellantis models: The front wheels are driven by a 100 kW e-motor supplied by Vitesco. A 50 kWh battery (gross) is installed as power storage, of which about 45 kWh can be used. For the e-208 this results in a range of 225 miles according to WLTP (362 kilometres), for the e-2008 214 miles (344 kilometres).

Both the e-small car and the e-SUV model are already familiar to Onto customers: the subscription provider had ordered the first e-208s from Peugeot in November 2020, and the e-2008 was first ordered in May 2021. Sister models on the eCMP platform, specifically the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense, Citroën ë-C4 and also the Vauxhall/Opel Corsa-e and Mokka-e models are also now part of the Onto fleet.

Most recently, the subscription provider had also ordered 600 Fiat 500e. Other vehicles in the all-electric fleet include the Audi e-tron and Hyundai Kona Electric. 700 Fisker Ocean have also been ordered, but production of this vehicle will not start until November.
