    Strange that Peugeot came in so wholeheartedly for just one season. One thing I can't understand is why these teams on a budget have such large setups, the Peugeot rig for 2018 was so noticeably more expensive than previous years when they were Hansen. Likewise EKS have a mad input. I think at Riga they had 4 huge lorries, 4 supercars and space for a static display. I'm sure a huge amount of it is just needless expense.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    The truth is most OEM's know it will be difficult to promote and excite fans in general with electric races, they may say they are completely behind those changes via PR marketing but in the end they are afraid of spending millions on new technology and having empty stands and no interest in the series.

    Anyway, no sense to invest yet in a full electric series when you just announced you will focus your development of regular cars ands sportscars in Plug-in Hybrid form.

    Well, called it last year. VW nearly murdered WRC and are now on course to murder RX. Peugeot will concentrate on the 308 TCR, which has been a pleasant surprise in the WTCR this year.

    Production of 3-door 208 ended long time ago...

    Why would Peugeot promote something which you can´t buy ?

    (same with Audi, new A1 was introduced wile ago, EKS S1 car is old model, VW isn´t "factory" team, so they can still use old model Polo, no PR problems)
