Peugeot 308 got an electric version

US SPONSOR

Peugeot has made good on its promise to launch an all-electric version of the 308. The E-308 has been unveiled to the public, which uses the same ICE platform and retains most of the exterior and interior styling cues of the hybrid variant.

A special set of 18-inch aerodynamic rims was developed for the E-308 to extract every possible kilometer of autonomy. The car uses a new generation of batteries with a total capacity of 51kWh. The operating voltage is 400V, and with one charge it is possible to travel more than 400km according to the WLTP cycle.

The front end and chassis have been subtly modified for better airflow, and there are new tires with lower rolling resistance. Peugeot has added a Brake mode in which deceleration is emphasized when the driver lets off the gas, and then energy recovery into the battery is enhanced. Charging is possible with a power of up to 100kW, and the battery is charged from 20% to 80% in 25 minutes.

The new model is available as a hatchback and wagon, both of which use a new electric motor with 156 HP and 260 Nm of maximum torque. There is no information on performance, other than the promise of “instant response” to the throttle command.

Peugeot will sell the E-308 from the middle of next year in Allure and GT trims. Customers can already order their copy from Peugeot’s website and pay using the old-for-new system. The new car will be delivered to their home address at no additional cost.

Peugeot notes that the E-308 SW is the first electric station wagon from a European manufacturer, but this is technically (perhaps) not true, as we have an electric Porsche Taycan Sport/Cross Turismo with an extended roof.
