PEUGEOT will release five new EVs in the next two years: the E-308, E-308 SW (the first European electric estate), E-408, E-3008 and E-5008.
The electric PEUGEOT 308 and 308 SW will be powered by a new electric motor, developing 115 kW (156 bhp), with a range of over 248 miles (WLTP cycle), and an average energy consumption of 12.7 kWh.
The new E-3008 ‘C-SUV’ will be revealed in the second half of 2023 with an electric driving range of up to 434 miles, and with three electric powertrains, including dual motors. The E-5008 will follow shortly after.
The brand will also have a 100% electric offer by 2025, and 100% of PEUGEOTs sold in Europe will be 100% electric by 2030.
The PEUGEOT INCEPTION CONCEPT is designed to be a showcase for how the brand’s electric vehicles will look from 2025.
The brand’s electric plans were announced at PEUGEOT’s ‘E-LION’ event, when PEUGEOT also said that in the future, the lifetime of a BEV car will be 20 to 25 years, whereas today, with an ICE car, it’s around 15 years. To help achieve this, key ‘wear and tear’ parts of the car, such as upholstery and trim, can be refreshed.
There will also be a focus on minimising weight, waste and processing. Thinner seats will help to save weight, and ending the use of chrome will be help to save resources.
PEUGEOT also wants to make its cars easy to buy, as demonstrated by launching the new 408 with the PHEV First Edition, which is one simple package that includes all options, including charging, and the ability to buy it online.
Making charging easy is also being addressed through Free2Move eSolutions. Charging at home is taken care of with a service offering the installation of a home Wallbox, and public charging is covered with the e-Solutions Card, giving access to the widest charging network in Europe – over 350,000 stations.
PEUGEOT is also on track to deliver its commitment to be Carbon Net Zero by 2038.
