The new Peugeot e-208 improved its autonomy and introduced essential improvements at the end of 2021, which it still has. However, the French manufacturer is announcing at this time, with an eye toward 2023, a significant technological change in its electric utility that will allow a notable evolution in all senses. The new Peugeot e-308 electric motor will debut in this e-208, making it the most remarkable innovation.
Because of this, the 115 kW (156 hp) of power that the new engine in the Peugeot e-208 will produce, rather than the existing 100 kW (148 hp), is a significant improvement (136 hp). This makes the utility 15% faster while reducing its energy to just 12,000 kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers.
Autonomy, a crucial feature of modern electric vehicles, stands to get at least a 10% boost as a direct result of this innovation. This means an additional 38 kilometers, bringing the total range of the benefit to 400 kilometers, a significant amount when considering the e-208's utility focus.
