Performance

The e-308 will have a 54-kilowatt hour battery. This is 4 kWh more than the e208’s battery and 50-kWh of usable power. The improved battery technology will enable the model to provide a range of nearly 250 miles (400 km) which is reminiscent of Europe’s WLTP cycle. Autocar reports that the EV will have 154 horsepower (114 kilowatts), and 199 pound-feet (269 Newton-meters), which will be routed to the front wheels.

Powertrain

Both the SW wagon and 308 hatch versions will receive the all-electric powertrain. Peugeot will hide the rest of the powertrain hardware under the hood and place the batteries underneath the seats. The 308 plug-in hybrid’s rear cargo space should be equal to that of the Peugeot 308 plug-in hybrid. Customers should expect the same tech-packed cabin as the model. This should also include 100-kilowatt fast charging.

2023 Peugeot E-308 For Sale

E-308 deliveries will start after production begins next July. Peugeot will also release pricing information closer to the date of on-sale. It will be interesting for the public to compare it to both the internal combustion and plug-in hybrid variants. Agnes TessonFaget, Peugeot’s 308 brand manager, stated to the publication that the company expects the e-308 will account for at most 20% of the model’s sales once it reaches dealers. Although the 308 plug-in hybrid accounts for more than 20% of all 308 sales, we will need to wait longer than a year before this becomes a reality.
