According to information from the British media Autocar, the next 100% electric version of the Peugeot 308 would arrive in June 2023 with a 150 hp engine.
Available in petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid, the Peugeot 308 will welcome a fourth motorization offer. We know since last year, an e-308 will swell the catalog of the compact within 2 years. However, its characteristics were still unknown.
British media Coach comes to bring new information. The Peugeot e-308 would embark its single electric motor on the front wheels, therefore always traction, the batteries lodged in the floor. So far, nothing extraordinary.
The block would power 154 horsepower for 270 Nm of torque. These figures are higher than the 136 hp and 260 Nm of the engine of the e-208 and e-2008, in order to move the heavier compact. The weight would rise accordingly at approximately 1,600 kg, like the hybrid and against about 1.3 tonnes in thermal. Autocar comes to support that the trunk would be that of the plug-in hybrid version, i.e. 361 liters (against 412 in gasoline and diesel).
Then comes the question of the platform. Two options remained possible: the current 308 thermal CMP or the future STLA Medium. Autocar does not say it but would lean towards the first.
The media from across the Channel claims that the battery will be different from the little sisters. The chemistry would be of the NMC811 type (nickel-manganese-cobalt), at the best efficiency. Consumption there would be 12.4 kWh / 100 km, while the size would only jump to 54 kWh. Reminder: the 208 and 2008 have 50 kWh.
This would therefore allocate a range of 400 kilometers to the electric Peugeot 308. A good score considering the higher weight of 150 kg vs e-208, the 20 additional horsepower and a barely larger battery. In terms of recharging, the power is announced identical to 100 kW direct current (DC), 30 minutes to cover 80%.
Peugeot e-308 production to start in July 2023 according to the same source, with deliveries in stride. It is still early to discuss the price, but do not hope not under 40,000 euros in basic price. Question objectives, the brand already expects that the electric account for 20% of sales. It remains to be seen whether the Peugeot 308 SW station wagon will be in the game.
