Two new models, the Peugeot 308 Sedan and the 308 SW Estate, are already available as plug-in hybrids. From the middle of next year, they will also be offered as purely electric vehicles.
The upcoming e-308 will be built on the Stellantis EMP2 platform along with the upcoming Vauxhall Astra-e. With the introduction of the e-308, Peugeot's family hatchback will be the first car in the Stellantis group to be offered with an internal combustion engine, plug-in hybrid or all-electric powertrain.
Peugeot also says the new e-308 battery will have a new chemistry, 80 percent nickel, 10 percent manganese, 10 percent cobalt, and a WLTP range of over 400 km. The power developed by the electric motor is also greater than that of the e-208 and e-2008: 156 hp. and 260 Nm of torque. The e-308 claims an energy consumption of 12.7 kWh per 100 km and takes less than 25 minutes to charge from 20 to 80 percent (using a 100 kW charger).
The e-308 and e-308 SW driver assistance systems include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Blind Spot Assist with a range of 75 meters and Rear Traffic Alert to warn of approaching danger when reversing.
Inside, the e-308 and e-308 SW offer the latest generation Peugeot i-Cockpit with a compact heated steering wheel, 3D digital instrument cluster and a 10-inch central digital instrument cluster.
