The E-308 is built on the same platform as the ICE and therefore has a lot of elements in common inside and out. To squeeze more range from the battery pack, a new pair of 18-inch wheels with aerodynamic efficiency in mind has been designed.
The Peugeot E-308 is powered by a 51 kWh a new-generation battery. The battery has a new chemical makeup with 80 percent nickel, 10 percent manganese, and 10 percent cobalt. When fully charged, it has enough power for more than 400 kilometers (about 250 miles) of range in the WLTP cycle. It takes less than 25 minutes to rise from 20 percent to 80 percent using a 100-kW charging station.
The E-308, which comes in both hatchback and wagon styles, uses a newly developed electric motor that produces 156 horsepower (115 kilowatts) and 260 Newton-meters (191 pound-feet) of torque. Since Electric Vehicles deliver their torque virtually instantly, the car's engineers promise "immediate responsiveness" from behind the wheel.
Peugeot will sell the 2023 E-308 from the middle of next year in Allure and GT trim levels. Customers can purchase the electric hatchback or wagon straight from the company's website and even trade in their old vehicle as well as finance the new purchase using the online platform. The EV will be delivered to their home without any additional costs.
Available in the Allure and GT trim levels, the new Peugeot E-308 and E-308 SW will arrive on the market in mid-2023. Customers can buy the electric hatchback or wagon directly from the company's website. They can also trade in their old vehicle, finance the new purchase, and have it delivered to their home - all online and free of charge.
There is no word about prices. We can only assume that EVs will be pricier than ICE-versions of 308 which starts from 23,200 euro for base hatchback in Germany.
