Peugeot e-308 electric hatchback and estate coming in 2023 | DrivingElectric


Peugeot has confirmed several details of the upcoming e-308 fully electric version of its 308 family car, which is currently available as a plug-in hybrid in both hatchback and estate forms.

The new car will arrive in 2023, and like its plug-in hybrid counterpart, will be offered as both a five-door estate (below) and a five-door hatchback. The estate version will be a direct rival to the MG 5 SW EV, currently the only mainstream zero-emissions estate car on the market.

It’ll sit on the same EMP2 mechanical platform as many existing cars from Peugeot and other Stellantis Group brands, but the motor and battery will be upgraded from the standard 134bhp/50kWh combination seen in electric models launched on this platform to date, to 154bhp and 54kWh respectively. That should result in a range of approximately 250 miles on a full charge.

It’s expected that most of these details will also apply to the e-308’s sister model, the Vauxhall Astra-e, although there has been no official confirmation of this yet. The e-308 will join the existing e-208, e-2008, e-Rifter and e-Traveller in the Peugeot electric passenger-car range.
