Cars are our livelihood but the environment impacts all our lives. Peugeot's innovative electric and hybrid vehicles feature a host of technology that makes it easy to get around modern towns and cities all whilst allowing you to be kinder to the planet. Electric cars are something that Peugeot has been working on for years and have been designed to provide the same technology and performance of normal petrol or diesel vehicles, except more economically.
At the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot revealed a brand-new range of Plug-In Hybrid petrol engines that are set to form an integral part of the transition towards complete electrification. This model line-up includes: the Peugeot 3008 SUV HYBRID4, all-new Peugeot 508 HYBRID and all-new Peugeot 508 SW HYBRID.
A high-voltage Lithium-ion (300V) battery will power the HYBRID and HYBRID4 engines and has a capacity between 11.8kWh and 13.2kWh which allows the cars to travel up to 30 miles on a single electric charge. All-new Peugeot 508 HYBRID and all-new 508 SW HYBRID models will combine the PureTech 180hp/132kW engine with a 110hp/80kW electric motor for a combined maximum power of 225hp/165kW which produces less than 49g/km CO2.
The already award-winning Peugeot 3008 SUV will be fitted with the all-new HYBRID4 system. This powerful engine provides four-wheel drive with an 110hp/80kW inverter and reaches the equivalent of 300hp/220kW. This is aided by a combination of a PureTech engine (reaching 200hp/147kW) and two electric motors (one at the front and another at the rear) that each reach 110hp/80kW to achieve 0 to 62mph in 6.5s.
The entire Plug-In Hybrid range goes on sale later this year.
Economical, easy to operate and environmentally friendly, discover the advantages of Peugeot 100% electric cars.
A new driving sensation
Enjoy a new level of driving comfort thanks to our quiet engines and reduced vibrations in a Peugeot electric car. What’s more, discover the joy of driving an electric car, including an easy start up and immediate engine torque that allows a clear acceleration without gear changes.
Because of their mode of operation, Peugeot electric vehicles emit no CO2. They provide a range of up to 211 miles (WLTP).
Realise the savings
To appreciate the total cost of a vehicle, you should not just consider the purchase price, but also the cost of energy (electricity or fuel), insurance and vehicle maintenance. A Peugeot electric car makes for an average consumption gain of 40% and maintenance that is up to 30% cheaper compared to a combustion vehicle.
Furthermore, by buying an electric car, you benefit from the Government Grant scheme of £3,500.
Make your life easier with an electric car thanks to fast, intuitive charging. Peugeot electric cars offer several ways to charge your battery that save you time: via domestic plug, wallbox or public charge point. In addition, charging an electric car is convenient and easy, and can be done quickly and intuitively.
With MyPeugeot App, you can also manage certain features of your vehicle remotely.
Discover key information such as the the range of Peugeot electric cars, the life of batteries, and also how to charge your electric vehicle.
The lithium iOn batteries used in Peugeot electric cars are included in the purchase of the vehicle. They have a range that can reach 211 miles WLTP and a capacity of 140 Wh (136 hp for the e-208). They last for 100,000 miles and for 70% of the battery charging capacity (for the e-208), and have a reduced loss of charging capacity over time.
This guaranteed range remains valid even in the event of resale of the vehicle or the purchase of a second-hand one.
Peugeot electric cars offer several ways to charge your battery that save you time. In addition, charging an electric car is convenient and easy, and can be done quickly and intuitively.
Charging from a domestic plug
The e-208 charges using a classic domestic plug in 20+ hours for a complete charge.
Charging with Wallbox
Accelerated charge at home:
Charge your e-208 more quickly and safely from a dedicated charging point which takes approximately 8 hours for a full charge. Government subsidies in the UK are available to support this*.
Charging with public charging points
You can obtain 80% of the vehicle charge in 30 minutes** from a 100kW charging station. Rapid chargers can be found at most motorway service stations and are being progressively installed across the UK.
Eco-driving is cost-effective driving that will allow you to maximise the range of your electric car.
1. Adopting fluid driving
To avoid higher energy consumption, tailor your driving to avoid jerks, frequent and high acceleration, as well as braking. On motorways, reduce your speed to a minimum because high speeds quickly lower the range of your car.
2. Using Brake mode
Instead of continuously using the brake pedal, use the engine braking system, which allows energy to be regenerated and therefore charges the battery, during the braking and decelerating.
3. Using "eco" mode
Electric cars are equipped with an "eco" mode that saves energy by reasonably reducing engine power. This mode is preferred in the city because we need less power than on the motorway.
4. Using the preconditioning
When your vehicle is charged, take advantage to precondition the battery to limit the energy of the heating or cooling systems when driving. Heating or cooling the car during the charge does not make use of the current range.
5. Maintaining the tyres
It is essential to maintain your tyres regardless of your car’s engine type. Besides representing safety, electric cars are concerned with reducing energy consumption, which is liable to increase with unsuitable or poorly inflated tyres.
