Electric Peugeot e-308 will offer a range of almost 250 miles – and there’s an EV estate version
Businesses and fleets looking to lease a new pure electric family hatch will soon have a fresh option in the marketplace with the launch of the Peugeot e-308 EV.
The five-door hatch Peugeot e-308 will be joined by a five-door estate Peugeot e-308 SW estate – making the French firm one of Europe’s first car brands to offer a fully electric estate.
Peugeot has developed an all-new electric powertrain for the e-308, combining a 156bhp electric motor and a new high-voltage 54kWh battery. High-mileage business users will be pleased to learn the company expects an official range of up to 248 miles between charges.
The car will also come as standard with an 11kW three-phase onboard charger, so drivers can use 100kW public rapid chargers – delivering charges from 20% to 80% in under 25 minutes.
Part of the growing range of Peugeot electric vehicles for businesses and fleets to lease, the e-308 and e-308 SW will be available in Allure and GT trim levels.
Standard equipment will include adaptive cruise control with stop and go, to take the stress out of high-mileage driving. There’s also blind spot monitoring and rear traffic alert which bleeps if it detects danger when reversing. A heated steering wheel is a nice additional extra fitted to all e-308.
The Peugeot i-Cockpit layout continues, with a digital head up-style instrument binnacle and central 10.0-inch touchscreen.
Peugeot has created a new design of 18-inch alloy wheel, developed to be more aerodynamically efficient to improve high-speed range – it will pay dividends at motorway speeds.
GT versions also get matrix LED headlights, while all versions get the distinctive Peugeot fang-shaped light signatures. There are ‘three-claw’ LED lights at the rear, too.
All new Peugeot e-308 carry the firm’s bold new lion logo in the centre of the grille. It’s part of the Peugeot brand’s evolution into a more premium firm, although it does not plan to stray too far from its mainstream pricing structure; the e-308 will remain affordable by class standards.
Peugeot has no more details at this stage, but confirms the new pure electric e-308 range will go on sale in the second half of next year to help with car replacement planning.
The current range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid models are priced from £25,380; expect the e-308 to cost from upwards of around £37,500. With no pricing announced yet, we can’t offer you any lease deals on either the e-308 or e-308 SW but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
