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.
The 2023 Peugeot e-208 electric car maintains the same up-to-date appearance as the current model. It has impressive features and a renowned digital i-Cockpit, creating a unique interior environment. These upgrades promise improved autonomy and efficiency and, in practice, greater driving pleasure with no vibrations, noise, or jerky gear changes.
Furthermore, Peugeot claims that the new power grid will feature a more efficient high-voltage battery with a total capacity of 51 kWh (48.1 kWh usable) and a voltage of 400 volts. Furthermore, the 2023 Peugeot e-208 will use category A+ tires (with lower friction losses) or some tailored change improvements to improve autonomy, as well as a heat pump coupled to a humidity sensor located in the windshield to improve heating and air conditioning efficiency.
Chargers for the new Peugeot e-208 electric car will come in two flavors: a basic 7.4 kW single-phase unit and an optional 11 kW three-phase unit. The model will be compatible with quick charging systems, such as those that use a 100 kW public charging station to restore a depleted battery to full life in under 25 minutes.
The new Peugeot e-208 electric car will, as usual, come with three different driving modes (ECO, Normal, and Sport) that can be toggled with a button on the center console. The brake function kicks in to maximize energy recovery and emphasize deceleration when you take your foot off the accelerator.
It is now possible to order a 2023 Peugeot e-208 through the company's official website for around 38,000 euros. Customers can also arrange for the delivery of a previously owned vehicle as partial payment and gain access to in-store and online financing options. Your home can be the car's no-cost, no-hassle delivery destination.
