Peugeot will equip the new e-308 hatchback and e-308 SW estate with a revised battery

new peugeot e-308 will arrive in 2023 with new electric powertrain

A new all-electric version of the Peugeot 308 is coming next year, called the e-308. It’ll complement Peugeot’s growing EV range with the familiar hatchback and estate variants, but Peugeot has decided to give it an all-new battery.

The upcoming e-308 will sit on the Stellantis EMP2 platform, along with the upcoming Vauxhall Astra-e. It’s the same technology we’ve already seen underpin the likes of the 508 saloon, 3008 SUV and, of course, the internal-combustion engined 308 models. With the arrival of e-308, Peugeot’s family hatchback will become the first car in the Stellantis group to be offered with pure combustion, plug-in hybrid or pure-electric power, when it arrives in June 2023.

Peugeot also says the e-308’s new battery will have a new chemical composition and claims a range of over 248 miles will be possible. The power the electric motor delivers is also greater than the e-208 and e-2008 can deliver at 156bhp and 260Nm of torque. An energy usage of 12.7 kWh per 100Km has been claimed for the e-308 as has a recharge rate from 20 to 80 per cent in under 25 minutes (using a 100kW charger).

Peugeot has updated most of its range this year with new Active Premium+ and Allure Premium+ trim levels and we expect a similar range structure for the e-308 in 2023. Every e-308 model will come with a selection of drive modes (Eco, Normal, Sport). A ‘Brake’ button will increase the aggressiveness of the brake regeneration system to recover more energy back to the battery.

Inside, the e-308 should feel similar to its internal combustion engined counterparts with Peugeot’s i-Cockpit featuring a central 10-inch touchscreen, i-Toggles and compact steering wheel.

The electric technology will bump up prices, though. Currently, the cheapest petrol 308 starts from £24,385, but the electric version could cost as much as £34,000 by the time it reaches UK showrooms. The gulf between the cheapest petrol and electric versions of the smaller 208 currently stands at around £9,600, so we’re expecting a similar increase for the 308 when it goes into battle with the likes of the Volkswagen ID.3 and Cupra Born.
