A few days ago, we knew all the official information of the new generation of the Peugeot 308. Initially, the French firm disclosed all the data corresponding to the five-door body version. However, the range of this popular compact will be expanded in the short and medium term with two new and interesting versions: the family SW and the unpublished one hundred percent electric variant e-308.
Throughout this article, we are going to reel off the first unofficial data that we have just learned from both versions. According to the chronological order of their arrival on the market, we start first with the SW family variant and then by the purely electric version.

From the point of view of your design, the recreation made by our illustrator Schulte they show you a first approach to the image of the familiar 308 SW, a version that will have multitude of aesthetic elements seen in the five-door body already known. One of the common elements of both versions is found in the aspect of the rear light clusters, which in the case of the new 308 SW will not have the black lacquered band that joins said pilots and which does incorporate the 508 SW.
The new installment of the SW wagon version of the 308 will feature the same wheelbase as the 5-door variant (2.67 m wheelbase in both cases), although the length of the bodywork in the SW variant could grow between 7 and 10 cm compared to the 5-door model for a total of 4.43-4.46 m, about. With these new dimension data, everything indicates that the new SW variant will offer more space available inside, both for the occupants and the cargo volume in the trunk (at least 50 liters more capacity than the current model).

Regarding the architecture or platform on which the unpublished would be based Peugeot e-308 2023, At the moment there is no official information about it, although everything suggests that it may be a evolution of the current EMP2 V3 platform for mid-size cars and SUVs, a flexible architecture and initially prepared for plug-in hybrid vehicles but not for pure electric cars.
