Reports: Peugeot 308 to become a battery EV
Two weeks after the unveiling of Peugeot’s new 308, Automotive News Europe is reporting that the car will get an all-electric version soon.
The news is not official and raises some questions. In particular, it remains unexplained how the car – which still holds onto its old EMP2 architecture – will go electric. The abovementioned platform only supports plug-in hybrids, but not fully electric cars. Then again. The alleged e-308 model might switch to a different chassis and tech.
One possible solution may come in the form of the eVMP chassis Peugeot announced in summer 2020 and scheduled for production in 2023.
