It has been awarded the Best Electric Car by Autocar and you can take a closer look at the Peugeot e-208 in our video.
Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen took a look around the e-208 - which had already been named European Car of the Year and What Car" Electric Small Car of the Year - and got behind the wheel at Gloucester dealers Warners.
Judges at Autocar's inaugural Britain's Best Cars Awards applauded the e-208's interesting design, exceptional driving experience and competitive value.
Peugeot UK managing director David Peel said: "Receiving yet more praise for our first new generation fully-electric model gives us great confidence as we continue to develop our plans to provide a fully electrified range by 2023.
"Being recognised in Autocar's Britain's Best Cars Awards shows our electric range offers drivers the power of choice without any compromise in capability."
One of the largest independent motor dealers in the county, Warners of Gloucester has been a Peugeot and Citroen stockist for more than 40 years and director Marc Warner said the rise in electric vehicles is clear.
He said: "The electric car market is growing quickly, the most recent set of industry figures show pure electric models accounted for 6.4 per cent of total new car registrations with this number set to rise steadily over the next 12 months and years to come.
"The Peugeot and Citroen brands have great award-winning product coming through that will put Warners in a great position to maximise this expected growth."
He continued: "Our job as a retailer is to give our customers the confidence to go electric and be able to answer any questions they may have about electric vehicles and to educate.
"With this in mind, our entire team is fully trained on electric vehicles and look forward to what the future has to offer."
