Electric Peugeot e-308 confirmed for 2023 with 250 mile range

New, all-electric Peugeot e-308 family hatch will also be available as an estate

Peugeot e-308

Peugeot has confirmed that it will launch a pure-electric version of the new 308 hatchback next year, which will wade into battle with the likes of the Volkswagen ID.3 and Cupra Born.

The new e-308 will be, along with the upcoming Vauxhall Astra-e, the first fully electric passenger car to be available on the Stellantis EMP2 platform, and 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. 

The e-208 and e-2008 both feature a 50kWh battery pack and a 134bhp electric motor, but the e-308 will be powered by a larger 54kWh battery and a more powerful 154bhp motor. Peugeot says the system will offer a maximum range of “more than 400km” (around 250 miles). The battery composition has also changed, which could bring improvements such as faster charging times – although Peugeot is yet to confirm all the technical details.

We expect e-308 buyers will be offered a similar range of trim-levels to that of the Peugeot e-208. The line-up should open with the brand’s cheapest Active Premium specification, rising through the comfort focussed Allure Premium grade to a sporty GT Premium flagship. Peugeot has also confirmed the e-308 will be offered as both a hatchback and an estate, with the more practical offering heading to showrooms shortly after the hatchback.

Like the rest of Peugeot EVs, the level of standard equipment should be identical between the petrol and electric versions of the 308 as the electric model will follow the same trim structure as the petrol and hybrid range. As such, the e-308 Active Premium should come with 16-inch alloys, LED headlights, rear parking sensors and a 10-inch infotainment system. 

The electric technology will bump up prices, though. Currently, the cheapest petrol 308 starts from £24,000, 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.
