Keeping our beaches safe

Surf lifesavers are a vital part of the community.

“YOU’RE IN IT for life” as

the saying goes among surf

lifesavers and so far this has

been true for Danny Schefer.

When Schefer and his family

moved to Sumner from England

13 years ago, his parents joined

the whole family up to Taylors

Mistake Surf Life Saving Club to

learn more about the ocean and

how to stay safe.

“We came from the middle

of England where there’s no

beaches so we’d never really had

too much to do with the sea,”

Schefer said. • Turn to page 6

Plan to

stop using

coal on

historic

tug boat

• By Kristie Boland

THE HISTORIC Tug Lyttelton

may move away from using coal

to an environmentally-friendly

fuel.

The Tug Lyttelton Preservation

Society is looking into new options

to power the 115-year-old

boat, one of oldest operating

steam-powered vessels in the

world.

Society president Mike Bruce

said up to 60-tonne of coal is used

a year to run the vessel.

“We’ve got to change, we want

to run the ship for another 100

years, we won’t do that on coal,

we’ve got to move away, it has to

be done,” he said.

But the costs of converting

from a coal-fired vessel to a more

environmentally-friendly option

are high.

“We are well aware we have

got to do something but we are

not self-sustainable, we can’t

fund ourselves through the year

from passenger sales so need to

go and get grants from Rata, pub

charities, the Heritage Society and

others.”

Estuary penguins under

threat from mauling dogs

• By Kristie Boland

LITTLE BLUE penguins on the

estuary continue to be attacked

by dogs.

Two were killed near Redcliffs

in December,

but the

number is

likely to be

higher Avon-

Trust manager

Tanya Jenkins

said.

She is urging

dog owners to follow the rules

and not allow their pets onto the

mudflats in the estuary where

penguins gather.

Jenkins also said dogs were

continuing to harass other

birdlife, particularly on the

Southshore side of the estuary.

Signage along the estuary

states that the mudflats are a ‘no

go’ zone for dogs but some local

residents continue to ignore the

rules, she said.

“During December another

two little blue penguins were

mauled by dogs around Redcliffs

and if these two birds were

found, there is a high chance the

numbers are much higher when

mauled birds are taken away by

the tides,” Jenkins said.

“Even if [birds] are not killed

by dogs, the disturbance by dogs

running on the mudflats can be

life threatening.”

Birds can only feed on the

mudflats during peak low tide

which allows for a short window

of only a few hours for them to

eat enough to last them the day.

Being disturbed by dogs can

significantly cut down this time.

“If in this short time they

are scared, chased by dogs,

it can take up to 45 minutes

before they regain the courage

to continue eating again,” said

Jenkins.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love

The trust is urging local

residents to help make dog

report those who ignore them to

In Brief

IMPACT OF SEA LEVEL

RISE SURVEY

The city council has created

a survey for the Lyttelton

Harbour and Port Levy area

communities it hopes will help

to inform long-term planning

as part of the council’s Coastal

Hazards Adaptation Planning

programme. Low-lying inland

and coastal communities will

be increasingly impacted by

intense storm events and longterm

sea level rise leading to

more frequent and severe coastal

flooding, coastal erosion, and

rising groundwater. The focus

area of the project is between

Lyttelton and Port Levy. The

survey is to help understand the

risk tolerance of communities

in the event of prolonged loss of

road access due to the impacts of

sea level rise.

BUTTERFLY PROGRAMME

SUCCESSFUL

Monitoring of the

reintroduction of the rauparaha

butterfly shows it has been

successful. The native butterfly,

endemic to New Zealand has

successfully been reintroduced

to Charlesworth Wetland.

The butterfly was thought to

be extinct, however, a colony

was found in Otago and 18

butterflies were transferred

to Charlesworth Wetland in

October, 2019.

In 2022, parents and caregivers will

be able to get their 5 to 11-year-olds

immunised against COVID-19

Some tamariki get very ill from catching

COVID-19 and immunisation is one of

the best ways to protect them.

Immunisation is an important way we keep tamariki safe,

like being sun smart or wearing a seatbelt.

It protects your tamariki from many serious diseases

and stops disease spreading within your whānau and the

community. In Aotearoa, tamariki get free vaccinations

against 12 diseases, including whooping cough (pertussis),

measles and polio.

Safety of the COVID-19 vaccine

The child (paediatric) Pfizer vaccine has gone through

the same rigorous approval process as other routine

childhood immunisations. No clinical trials were skipped

and no corners were cut in the testing of its safety.

The Pfizer vaccine for 5 to 11-year-olds has been through

clinical trials with children in this age group. In general,

the side effects that were reported were mild, didn’t last

long, and were similar to side effects from other routine

immunisations.

Take time this summer to get the information and advice you need to make the best

decision for your tamariki. Find out more at:

Funding key to long-term options

• From page 1

Bruce said the society is looking

into a range of options, one

of those being powering the ship

with bio fuel.

Bio fuel is fuel that can be produced

from, or are made up of a

renewable material like wood.

Bruce estimates the conversion

cost of going from coal to bio fuel

is $40,000. Double the amount of

wood needs to be used to achieve

the same amount of energy as

coal.

Another option, that could be

run in conjunction with bio fuel,

is to have an electric pre-heater

to pre-heat the boiler. This would

cost another $80,000.

Wood has less greenhouse

gas associated with it than the

average electricity greenhouse

gas footprint. If battery powered,

it will be the “oldest vessel in the

world running the newest technology,”

Bruce said.

However, these may only be

short-term options. Whatever

decision is made will be based on

the funding available to them.

“[It’s] based on what funding

we can get. If we get a million

dollars we’ll go pretty much go

straight to hydrogen, if we get

$50,000 we’ll go straight to bio

fuel and if we get $150,000 we’ll

go to bio fuel and an electric

pre-heater,” Bruce said.

“We’ve got to get off coal, but

we’re not going to get off coal

without funding.”

Bruce said they will be sourcing

expert advice on the next

steps for the ship.

‘We’ve got to change, we

want to run the ship for

another 100 years’

– Mike Bruce

“I want three or four plans in

place and costed out then we can

run to the grant people and other

agencies and say okay with this

much we can do this with this

much we can do that.”

“A lot of people love this vessel,

it’s got a lot of history for Lyttelton,

it’s probably one of the oldest

historic vessels in the world, we

need to keep it going but it does

need to change.”

Sunday was the first public

sailing of the season for the tug

and it will continue to sail every

Sunday at 2.30pm, weather

permitting, until Easter weekend

in April.

PLANS: Mike Bruce says

the The Tug Lyttelton

Preservation Society is

sourcing expert advice on

how to fuel the vessel in

the future.

Love of ocean and helping people

• From page 1

The now 21-year-old Canterbury

University student is a

patrol captain on both volunteer

and paid guard, a beach education

instructor and a member of

the 24/7 search and rescue squad

in Sumner.

From age eight to 13, Schefer

was a part of the junior surf

programme, also known as the

‘nippers’. At 13, he completed the

rookie lifeguard programme. At

14, he gained his surf lifeguard

award and then at 16, the senior

lifeguard award – inflatable rescue

boat driver.

Now, each season, Schefer

works full-time during the

week as a paid regional lifeguard

and spends his weekends

volunteering at Taylors Mistake.

He also does beach education,

teaching school children

all there is to know about water

safety.

Schefer became a lifeguard

because he simply loved being

around the ocean and helping

people.

“I’ve been helped out a lot all

the way through my lifesaving

journey and I wanted to give

back,” he said.

Schefer’s continued efforts have

not gone unnoticed.

Taylors Mistake patrol operations

manager Ian Rae joined the

this season. When he returns to his studies in February he will continue to volunteer

club in 2006 when Schefer “was

one of the nippers”.

“He’s a really lovely guy . . .

he’s just really keen and a great

leader within our club. A really

great example of what a lifeguard

needs to be,” Rae said.

Schefer was awarded the

Canterbury Volunteer Lifeguard

of the Year in 2021 for his “dedication

and commitment” to

surf lifesaving. Last year he also

gained his advanced lifeguard

award, which is the highest

award available for lifeguards

within the Surf Life Saving New

Zealand pathway.

Schefer said he’s continuously

learning and that each day on

the job brings with it new challenges.

“Each [rescue] is very different,

there’s always something that

changes with it,” he said.

Schefer said one rescue that

stood out for him was three

seasons back while patrolling at

Cave Rock, multiple swimmers

were caught in a rip. Schefer rescued

two people by pulling them

in on a rescue tube. After getting

them to the beach, he immediately

returned to rescue another two

on a rescue board.

“It’s always a relief when you

get them back onto the beach and

everyone is fine, there’s a lot of

focus in the moment,” he said.

Although there is a lot of

responsibility on his shoulders,

Schefer feels confident in the

training he has had and the support

from his colleagues.

“I know I’ve always got the

backup on the beach if things go

wrong,” he said.

Schefer and his younger brother

Ollie, 19, are currently training

as a team for IRB racing. They

will compete in February and

March with the nationals held in

April.

TOURISM BUSINESSES have

seen a busy holiday period but

concern is growing for some

as people return to work and

bookings decease.

Black Cat Cruises in Akaroa

had a “very flat” December and

saw a 10 per cent decrease in

business on last year said chief

executive Paul Milligan.

“[But] the weather this side

of Christmas has been great

and has encouraged people

to get out and about and do

activities.”

Milligan said the Quail

Island ferry in Lyttelton has

been running full since Boxing

Day and the Akaroa products

have “seen good uptake – up

slightly on last year.”

“We are very aware that

kiwis plan their activities

last minute and based on the

weather, so will see what the

next few weeks brings,” he said.

Pohatu Penguin Tours in

Akaroa had a traumatic start

to the season with the flooding

causing extreme damage to the

Banks Track.

“We are running again now

but the bay still looks like a

disaster site and some of Banks

Track has had to be rerouted

Mixed fortunes for

peninsula businesses

for the rest of the season to

avoid the worst damaged

areas,” Pohatu Penguins

director Shireen Helps

said.

“This last year has been

awful and it is surprising

we are still hanging in; 2022

will have to be a lot better

otherwise we will lose even

more tourism businesses,”

Helps said.

Pohatu Penguin Tours also

offers sea kayaking in the

marine reserve and a farm stay.

In November it was featured

on Country Calendar.

“We have had so many

people saying that this is how

they found us about us and the

reason they came. Without this

summer would have looked

very different,” manager Kevin

Parthonnaud said.

Parthonnaud said they

had a good amount of

bookings over the Christmas/

New Year period but from

this week on, as people return

to work, bookings have

“plummeted.”

“I am still wondering what

autumn and winter will bring

and am very concerned about

the future of our business,” he

said.

BEAUTIFUL: Community pride garden awards judge

Ron Andrew and his wife Glyn.

A NEAT garden that stands

out from the rest is a winning

formula when it comes to

the community pride garden

awards.

The awards, which are being

held for the 32nd year in a row,

aim to celebrate and recognise

beautiful gardens.

Christchurch Beautifying

Association president Ron

Andrew is one of 20 judges

who will be making the rounds

through neighbourhoods from

Saturday in search of the best

looking gardens visible from the

street.

Andrew said one of the main

things the judges look for is

community pride.

He said a lot of people get

involved in gardening each year,

particularly the elderly and the

effort they put in is amazing.

Andrew also said the benefits

of gardening make the hard

work worthwhile.

“It’s healthy, it gets rid of

stress, it’s enjoyable and the end

results are rewarding . . . it’s

the most popular past time of

anything.”

Partnering with the city

council, community boards and

the Christchurch Beautifying

Association, the awards aim

to encourage civic pride and

recognise people who help

maintain Christchurch’s

reputation as the Garden City.

“Many people in our

communities put time and effort

into their gardens each week,

planting, mulching, weeding

and mowing,” said city council

head of community support,

John Filsell.

“We also have commercial

property owners who go the

extra mile with their public

gardens.

“It really makes a difference

to how our streets look and

how people feel about their

community so we want to

recognise that hard work

through these awards.”

Volunteer judges from the

association will be judging the

gardens from January 15 to

February 6.

Last year 682 awards were

given out for outstanding

gardens.

The gardens will be

judged on the amount of

effort put into creating and

maintaining it, overall tidiness

and the impact of the garden on

the street.

Gardeners that meet these

standards will receive a prize

card in their mailbox, with all

gardens visible from the street

being eligible, both residential

and commercial.

Six community boards

are involved in the awards:

Coastal-Burwood, Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood,

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton,

Linwood-Central-Heathcote,

Papanui-Innes and Spreydon-

Cashmere.

Any garden within these areas

and visible from the street is

eligible for an award.

FINAL TOUCHES: Artist Jonny Waters working on the new food truck as

Lisa Houghton watches on.

Jonny’s food truck

masterpiece

LYTTELTON ARTIST Jonny Waters has

completed his latest work on a food truck

promoting healthy eating.

The food truck, covered in colourful

cartoon fruits and vegetables, is a part of

Otago University’s department of human

nutrition food service paper.

Students had to create a fake food truck

business, and acquiring a real truck was

the logical next step, said head of department

Professor Lisa Houghton.

Waters was approached by Houghton to

do the artwork. He jumped at the chance,

and had free rein with the design.

“I thought it was a bit of a no-brainer

really, doing a whole bunch of healthy

fruit and vegetables and stuff like that and

making them into funny characters,” said

Waters.

“One of the main cool things about this

sort design is that it’s quite appealing to

kids.”

The food truck, which took three days

to paint, is the latest of Waters’ works that

can be seen across Dunedin.

They include murals on the Burger

Plant restaurant, the Lead Balloon cafe

and the Legendairy flat in Duke St.

• By Chris Barclay

CAROLE STEELE likens golf’s

Boyle Cup to the Ranfurly

Shield, an apt comparison as

holders Charteris Bay zero in on

matching the province’s famed

rugby side’s achievement from

1982-85.

With 17 challengers denied

this tenure, and another six on

the cards following a ballot draw

in March, the experienced fivestrong

women’s team is close to

emulating Canterbury’s streak

of 25 log o’ wood defences under

coach Grizz Wyllie.

Had Covid-19 not intervened

in 2020, Charteris Bay might

have already been on the

brink of eclipsing that mark as

they missed hosting another

half-dozen opponents at the

picturesque course.

Christchurch, who introduced

the inter-club challenge

trophy in 1914, Everglades,

Rangiora, Coringa, Russley

and Waimakariri Gorge were

beaten last year as Charteris Bay

dropped only 4.5 matches from a

possible 30.

They started the reign by

beating Greendale in April,

2018, with Steele, the senior

player at 81-years-old, citing

home course advantage for their

prolonged success in the match

play format.

The greens can be deceiving

when putting towards the

harbour, while the nine-hole

layout’s terrain can also catch

visitors unawares.

“In reality, we’ve only got one

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

funny little bunker. There are no

real hard things on the course

but people don’t find it easy,”

Steele said.

“It’s the greens and the fact it

is undulating . . . people do find

that quite daunting when they’re

used to flat courses. It’s a physical

test, the course does keep us up

to scratch fitness-wise.”

Steele, after all, has no plans to

retire, nor do Denise Whitbread,

Bid to hold trophy boosted by home advantage

the youngest team member at

68, Julie Sims, Alice Lewis and

captain Chris Brodie.

Continuity is another factor

with personnel changes kept to

a minimum with Sharon Screen

now playing for Tai Tapu and

Nicky Coop on call if required as

a reserve.

Although Charteris Bay’s team

is made up of superannuitants,

Steele clarified the Boyle Cup is

not a masters-style competition.

“We haven’t got anyone else to

choose from,” she laughed.

“There’s only 15 active playing

ladies and some of them are

older than me.”

Steele was farming in Port

Levy when she joined the club 48

years ago.

“Back then a group of us

girls said: ‘Let’s go and try

this silly game called golf’,

and I’m still there. I love it,” she

said.

Steele was a golfing novice

when Charteris Bay fashioned

a sequence of 34 defences in the

1970s; their previous tenure only

lasted a couple of games about

seven years ago so they’re keen

for this stretch to last as long as

possible.

“We say it’s the Ranfurly

Shield of Canterbury ladies golf,”

she said.

“It’s a prestigious trophy, very

special.”

Treasures from the past:

The Flying Pig

The Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade with its Dennis Ace fire appliance.

internal combustion engines and

pumps.

The images show Lyttelton

Volunteer Fire Brigade in their

finest dress uniforms proudly

assembled around their 1938

Dennis Ace pumper – a fire

engine known fondly to its many

admirers around the world as

‘The Flying Pig’.

Built at the Dennis Brothers’

Guildford factory in the UK, the

Dennis Ace used a 3770cc sidevalve

petrol engine with four

speed gearbox, bevel pinion diff,

and hydraulic brakes on a twoton

lorry chassis with a setback

front axle. The prominent front

forward engine mounting and

bonnet, or ‘snout’, allowed for

tight turns around tighter city

blocks and also gave the appliance

its porcine nickname.

Featuring two hose lockers up

top with enclosed storage lockers

on the running boards, and

IN THE early days of firefighting

in colonial New Zealand the

biggest obstacle was the lack of

what we modern town dwellers

today mostly take completely for

granted, that being water pipes

with mains pressure.

So bucket brigades were the

way to go, from the nearest water

tank or horse trough, followed

later by hose reels with manual

water pumps hauled by men or

horses … or both.

It wasn’t until around the

1860s that steam-driven pumps

finally arrived with the early

adopter Dunedin Brigade

importing the first of these in

1865.

Motorised fire engines began

to appear in the early 1900s, with

the Wanganui Brigade importing

Australasia’s first self-propelled

steam-driven fire engine and

pumper in 1903.

It was at this historical

juncture, following the Fire

Brigades Act of 1906, that

the modern professional and

volunteer fire brigade service we

know and trust today began to

take form.

By the 1920s most of New

Zealand’s fire brigades were fully

motorised with many transi-

263 x 180

tioning over to petrol-powered

brackets for three scaling ladders

on top of the hose box, the Dennis

Ace could fit two firefighters

up front with another eight in

the back.

The onboard water pump

could push 350 imperial gallons

or 1600-litres per minute under

high pressure making this one

of the most efficient and popular

firefighting appliances in the

world at the time.

Being such an iconic fire engine,

the Flying Pig saw service

for several decades with some

brigades not letting theirs go

until the 1970s.

The Lyttelton Brigade’s

Dennis Ace DV 3436 performed

valiantly for many years before

being retired to a paddock in

favour of the ever newer, faster,

and more technologically

proficient appliances used by the

brave men and women of today’s

Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade.

FOOD 17

Taste of summer with a little spice

Barbecued tandoori

prawns

Sometimes a tasty

snack is required while

sitting in the sun with a

cold beverage. So if that

is your plan tomorrow

throw some prawns in this

tasty marinade today and

then all you need to do

tomorrow is thread them

on to some skewers, fire up

the barbecue and eat. You

can cook the prawns on

the barbecue or in a frying

pan. Either way, make sure

it’s quite hot so they get

a light char in the short

cooking time

Ingredients

Makes 10 skewers

2 Tbsp thick plain yoghurt

1 Tbsp bought tandoori paste

1 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp honey

½ tsp ground turmeric

20 large raw, peeled prawns

Coriander, mint and yoghurt

relish (see recipe below).

Lime wedges

10 thin metal or wooden

skewers.

Directions

Stir everything, except the

prawns, together in a large

shallow dish. Add the prawns and

turn to coat. Cover and chill for

at least a few hours if possible, or

up to 24 hours.

Preheat a lightly oiled barbecue

chargrill plate or frying pan.

Thread the prawns on to

skewers and cook for 1-2 minutes

on each side until just cooked

through. Cooking time depends

on the size of the prawns.

Transfer to serving platter and

serve with the relish for dipping

and lime wedges for squeezing

over.

Coriander, mint and

yoghurt relish

Ingredients

Makes about 1 cup

½ cup each coriander and mint

leaves, roughly chopped

½ cup thick plain yoghurt

2 Tbsp rice bran oil

Finely grated zest 1 lime

1 Tbsp lime juice

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 long green chilli, chopped

½ tsp ground cumin

1 tsp sea salt

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a

food processor and process until

smooth.

Crunchy Spicy Chicken

Nibbles with Alabama

dipping sauce

Summer is the time

to prepare for gatherings

with friends and families.

It is always a good idea

to have some more

substantial snacks

prepared for the

evening to help

balance out the

celebratory drinks.

Chicken nibbles are

always a favourite and

this recipe by Sophie

Gray, aka the Destitute

Gourmet, is quick and

easy with a little twist

Ingredients

Serves 4–6 as a snack

Ready In: 50 minutes

150g spicy corn chips

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

2 tsp Mexican seasoning

1/2 tsp ground chilli

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp salt

1kg chicken nibbles (approx.

24)

Sophie Gray

2 eggs, lightly beaten

Cooking spray

•Alabama dipping sauce:

1 cup mayonnaise

1/8 cup cider vinegar

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp ‘cream style’

horseradish (available in the

supermarket)

1 clove garlic, crushed

1/4 tsp paprika

Handful of fresh basil leaves,

finely chopped

Salt and pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 190 deg

C. Place the corn chips in a

processor or sturdy bag, and

pulse or crush to form crumbs.

Add the breadcrumbs,

seasonings and salt and pulse

or shake bag to mix. Pour into

a bowl.

Dunk the chicken nibbles in

the beaten egg, then coat in the

crumb mix.

Arrange on a baking tray

lined with non-stick baking

paper, and spray generously

with cooking spray.

Bake for 35 minutes, or till

golden. Make the Alabama

dipping sauce. In a mediumsized

bowl, whisk all of the

ingredients together until

smooth. Transfer to a jar with

a tight lid and refrigerate until

needed (up to a week).

Tip: You can use the crunchy

crumb mixture for home-made

chicken nuggets or even for

crumbing fish.

Own a Peugeot EV in less than 60min

SO YOUR OLD banger has

blown up, or you just feel like it’s

time to get a new car.

The problem could well be

that the vehicle you want is the

victim of the supply issues that

are plaguing most of the new car

distributors and dealerships.

Wait times of months ahead

are pretty much the norm these

days, thanks to a semi-conductor

manufacturing shortage globally

and shipping backlogs because of

the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, there is much hope,

what is labelled a 60-Minute

Commitment by the Armstrong

Motor Group could see you

driving in a premium car – new

or pre-owned – in less than one

hour.

The initiative incorporates the

choice of more than 700 vehicles

from 16 different manufacturers

at all Armstrong dealerships,

the process is both quick and

simplistic.

With many of the elements

needed to make a car ready

for the road available on-line –

registration, insurance, money

transfer or finance options – these

can all be arranged within the

time frame, although a road test

isn’t included in the 60-minute

programme.

The Armstrong Group has cars

ready to go at any given time,

they are groomed and sitting

waiting for customers.

A change of transport could

well see a buyer behind the wheel

of a new Peugeot 208, the series

fully revamped this year and

available now from Armstrong’s

Peugeot. This evaluation focuses

on the e-208, its nomenclature

pointing to electric; yes, it’s a full

plug-in model, there is no petrol

engine, just an electric motor and

battery power.

The e-208 lands in the market

at $61,990, as such it easily

qualifies for the Government’s

clean car discount of $8625.

Just like its petrol-powered

counterparts, the e-208 arrives

with a new body shell and

interior. It is state-of-the-art allthrough

with a high percentage

of toggle switches and digitalised

functions. Saying that, it looks

minimalistic, and being so

is intuitive and one quickly

becomes at home as a driver.

The 208 as a series isn’t big, it’s

a cheeky, five-door hatchback

that is as much at ease in the

city commute as it is on a long

highway haul.

However, the e-208 has charging

factors to ponder. Peugeot rate it

with a maximum driving distance

of 348km between charges. It will

take about seven hours to charge

from empty to full on a domestic

supply 7.4kW wallbox, or 28 hours

using a three-pin power cable. If

you have a type 2 cable you can

hook into any of the nationwide

charging ports that are springing

up all over the country. A 30min

COMPACT: The interior of the Peugeot e-208 incorporates a

raft of new-age specification in a minimalistic environment.

PEUGEOT e-208 GT: Plug-in electric vehicle that complements a new petrol model.

boost will give you a zero to 80

per cent charge and you can be on

your way again.

I never used the type 2 cable, I

charged the e-208 overnight from

my garage, the cable, thankfully,

long enough to reach and have

the garage door closed at the

same time.

Driving the e-208 requires little

familiarity, you just hop in, select

D on the drive selector (or R) and

away you go. Of course, there is

very little sound, just a hum from

the motor – much like the sound

you get on a Christchurch tram.

The e-208 is sprightly, although

you do have to remember if you

like quick acceleration that will

lessen the distance you have to

travel between charges. That

aside, a standstill to 100km/h

time of 8.3sec is quite quick,

and when you pull out for that

highway overtake the mid-range

response is forceful – 6sec to

make 120 from 80km/h.

Peugeot rate the e-208 with

100kW and 260Nm, bear in mind

that the latter figure is available

from just 300rpm, power is

instant and with the lightweight

of the car (1455kg) acceleration is

constantly invigorating.

There are also driver-selectable

drive modes, including a sport

option which really livens

accelerator feel.

I drove the e-208 much in

keeping with its design role

– suburb to city commute, as

well as a country excursion to

• Price – Peugeot e-208 GT,

$61,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4055mm; width, 1745mm;

height, 1430mm

• Configuration – Electric

motor, front-wheeldrive,

100kW, 260Nm,

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.3sec

Darfield. At open road speed the

e-208 sits tight on the road and

imparts little noise, sure there are

wind gushes around the mirrors

and a hum off the tyres, but those

sounds are only exacerbated

by the lack of noise from the

driveline, it is almost silent as you

travel, just a purr from the motor

as speed increases or decreases.

I suffer a little from what you

would call range anxiety so I

didn’t venture far off the beaten

track, but I did travel back to the

city taking in a few tight corners

near Burnham.

Just like the 208, the e variant

has composed handling manners,

it sights well attached to the

road and is remarkably stable in

a corner. Drive is through the

front wheels, but even with the

strong torque rush there is little

to feel in terms of tugging at the

steering wheel, the handling feel

is neutral. A lot of the latter can

be attributed to the wonderful

Michelin tyres, at 205/45 x 17in

there isn’t a lot of rubber on the

road, but steering is accurate and

direct.

It must also be said the e-208

takes on board the engineering

elements that have made Peugeot

the master of balance between

ride comfort and handling

ability. The suspension is supple,

affording a fabulous in-cabin ride.

Comfort for all on board is

paramount and for three in

the rear it isn’t too much of a

squeeze. Those up front have a

lot of new-age specification at

their hands – satellite navigation,

keyless entry and power switch,

ambient lighting, panoramic roof

and radar cruise control. There’s

also leather/suede-type seating

material along with heated front

seats.

The e-208 is also badged GT,

that’s a bold claim but with

the way electric technology is

progressing it could well be a

grand touring model. Any electric

car that has a travelling distance

of over 300km allows you to

tackle a long highway journey

with relative peace of mind.

In recent weeks the Kiddie

family has been travelling a lot in

the old Toyota, it’s a bit of a fuel

guzzler and we are sure noticing

the pain at fill-up with the high

price of petrol at present. We

know we can’t sustain those costs

as I head towards retirement.

It may well be time to head to

Armstrong’s and take up the

60-minute challenge.
