That’s how capable the Peugeot electric and plug-in hybrid range is: autonomies and recharging times.
After several weeks of “roadshow”With the Peugeot e-Xperience Days, many have been able to test Peugeot’s plug-in and electric hybrid range of the hand of the monitors of HIGHWAY.
The protagonists have been the Peugeot e-208 Y e-2008 one hundred percent electric, both endowed with the Zero emissions label of the DGT, and the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 Y 508 PSE that, although they have plug-in hybrid technology, they also have the Zero blue badge on your windshield. Sportiness, efficiency, elegance and comfort they come together in these four proposals whose common denominator is electrification.
One of the questions that we have been asked the most during the Peugeot e-Xperience Days tour of Madrid, Malaga, Barcelona, Valencia and Seville focused on the autonomy of electrified Peugeot vehicles and their recharge times. Some data that stand out in their respective segments and that we present to you, in detail, below.
Peugeot e-208, with 340 km of electric autonomy.
Peugeot e-208: the most urban bet
It was the first to arrive of the current family of electrified vehicles of the brand. The Peugeot e-208 is much more than the one hundred percent electric version of the French utility. Endowed with a mechanical 100 kW (136 hp)It has a 50 kWh capacity battery. This, with a guarantee of 8 years or 160,000 kilometers, allows the driver of the Peugeot e-208 to travel up to 340 km on a single charge and without polluting emissions.
When it comes to charging the battery for new use, stick with this: It only takes half an hour to recover 80 percent of the energy at a fast charge point of 100 kW. Using domestic charging points, you can opt for a 11 kW three-phase Wallbox, whose full charge takes 5 hours and 15 minutes; With a 7.4 kW Wallbox, a full recharge takes about 8 hours.
Peugeot e-2008, with a range of up to 310 km in electric.
Peugeot e-2008: same efficiency in SUV format
The Peugeot e-2008 share the same technical scheme as e-208. The big difference is in the packaging: here we already talk about a Urban SUV, with the advantages of a more daring aesthetic and a higher driving position. In your case, at the same electrical power of 100 kW (136 hp) and the same recharging times, the approved autonomy figure is 310 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle. Figures that, however, can be improved when we make a completely urban use and bring out the advantages of its regenerative braking and of the different driving modes.
Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4, the plug-in hybrid SUV that can travel up to 59 km in electric power.
Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4: the 4×4 plug-in SUV
Back in format SUVOf course, bigger and with more size, a Peugeot 3008 is presented, which has always been among the best-selling cars in Spain and Europe. its more efficient version, and at the same time more powerful and performance, is represented by the 3008 Hybrid4: “Hybrid”, for its plug-in hybrid technology, with a combined power of 300 hp; the “4”, for its Four-wheel drive. Its mechanics are made up of a 200 hp PureTech gasoline engine and two other electric motors: one on the front axle, 81 kW (100 hp) and the other at the rear, 83 kW (112 hp). The compact SUV also has a front-wheel drive version and 224 hp.
The Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 takes advantage of a 13.2 kWh battery to be able to circulate up to 59 kilometers in one hundred percent electric mode (35 miles in the front-wheel drive 3008 Hybrid). This ability to move in electric mode can be carried up to 135 km / h maximum speed. To recharge its full capacity, it takes about 7 hours with a household plug, or much less time with a 6.6 kW Wallbox, thanks to which it recharges in just 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Peugeot 508 PSE, the sports saloon can travel in electric up to 42 km on a single charge.
Peugeot 508 PSE: the jewel in the crown
Developed especially by Peugeot sport, the high competition division of the French brand, the PSE version of the Peugeot 508 saloon is undoubtedly the sports crown jewel of the entire range. The secret of its performance also lies in the electrification: its plug-in hybrid mechanics develops 360 combined horsepower and 520 Nm of torque, copying the same scheme of the 3008 Hybrid4. Of course, in your case, with much more capable features and qualities: from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.2 seconds.
Also available with family body, its autonomy in one hundred percent electric mode is 42 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle (54 km in the “conventional” Peugeot 508 Hybrid). Its 11.5 kWh lithium-ion battery hides under the rear seats and recharges in 1 hour and 45 minutes with a 7.4 kW Wallbox; With the 3.7 kW cable-charger, standby times go up to 4 hours.
