19.1.2022Peugeot to boost range of e-308
New reports have emerged on the technical data of the Peugeot e-308, which will enter the market next year. The reports differ slightly from previous information.
Previously, it was understood that Peugeot was planning a pure-electric version of its new 308. Now Autocar has revealed new details. The Peugeot e-308, according to Autocar, will go into production in July 2023 and will be delivered shortly thereafter. The SW estate version will also be offered as a pure electric vehicle.
According to the reports, the Peugeot e-308 will be available as a front-wheel-drive car only. However, the electric motor will increase from 100 kW to 114 kW and the maximum torque will apparently increase by ten Nm to 270 Nm, according to Autocar.
Rather than the 50 kWh battery, the e-308 will instead receive a 54 kWh battery. According to the reports, the net usable value will be 50 kWh, which would be around five kilowatt-hours more than before. The battery pack has the same dimensions as before, with a new NMC811 battery chemistry ensuring a higher energy density. What's more, the powertrain will apparently be more efficient – consumption is still quoted at 12.4 kWh/100km – making a WLTP range of almost 250 miles possible, alongside aerodynamic tweaks and the new heat pump recently introduced in the e-CMP models,
There will, however, be no change to the charging capacity, according to the reports, which will remain at 100 kW. Charging from 10-80% at a rapid charging station will take about 30 minutes. On an AC 11 kW charger, the battery will be fully charged in around five hours.
