Hurrah! Peugeot is launching an all-electric 308 estate
Oh, and the 308 hatch is getting an EV version too. We’re all about the estate, though
Great news for all those who wanted an electric estate car but couldn’t quite bring themselves to buy an MG 5 – Peugeot has announced that an all-electric e-308 SW will arrive next year, and it's a handsome thing.
The e-308 hatch is a cracking looking thing too and will arrive at the same time as the estate. Peugeot has said that both iterations will use a brand-new electric powertrain, with a 156bhp electric motor and a new 54kWh high-voltage battery.
That should mean a WLTP range of 248 miles, with 100kW fast-charging allowing for a 20-80 per cent top-up in 25 minutes. There’ll be Eco, Normal and Sport drive modes, plus a Brake mode for maximum regen when you lift off the throttle. All very standard EV stuff these days, which makes us think a worthy electric 308 estate could be very good indeed.
Both the hatch and the estate will be available in Allure and GT trim levels, with Peugeot’s i-Cockpit inside and a 10-inch central infotainment screen. Those aero-spec 18-inch wheels will be exclusive to the EV versions of both too.
What do we think, sensible folk of the Internet?
