Peugeot announce e-308 and e-308 SW
The new all-electric 308 will come in estate and hatchback variants, and will arrive in showrooms by mid-2023
Peugeot has introduced fully electric versions of its 308 hatchback and estate models.
With an all-electric drivetrain, the e-308 (hatchback) and e-308 SW (estate) will come with a 156bhp motor (115 kw), as well as a 54kWh battery.
Both cars will come with 100kW rapid charging, which the brand claims will power the battery from 20 to 80 percent in less than 25 minutes, while an on-board three-phase 11kW charger is provided as standard.
On a full charge, Peugeot says the e-308 and SW will deliver a range of 248 miles.
There are three driving modes - Eco, Normal and Sport, while an additional ‘Brake’ mode provides regenerative braking for some extra power for the battery.
The exterior features Matrix LED headlamps, as well as LED lights to the rear, while the brand’s redesigned badge will be placed on the car’s bonnet. They will ride on specifically designed aluminium alloys with 18-inch tyres, which are said to improve aerodynamic efficiency.
Peugeot has also equipped its electric 303 models with a number of driving aids, including Adaptive Cruise Control, long-range blind spot monitoring (75 metres) as well as Rear Traffic Alert which warns of danger when reversing.
Inside, the new Peugeot e-308 and e-308 SW features the brand's distinctive i-Cockpit setup, which involves a compact heated steering wheel, as well as a digital intrument cluster located at eye-level. There is also a 10-inch touch screen which runs the brand’s i-connect infotainment system.
When both models go on sale in mid-2023, they will come in two trim levels: Allure and GT. They will be available to order straight from Peugeot’s website, with the option of part exchanging an existing vehicle.
Already both the estate and hatchback variants come as a plug-in hybrid, though the all-electric models form part of the brand's aim to offer every Peugeot vehicle with an electrified variant by 2025.
