The updates were announced alongside a renewed commitment to releasing five new full EVs by 2025 and a concretisation of its new car subscription plans.

Peugeot is taking electrification very seriously. By 2025, it has committed to having fully-electric models offered across its entire lineup. 

Working towards this huge goal, however, naturally requires some incremental progress along the way, and on its E-Lion Day, held on 26 January 2023, steady steps were exactly what the French brand laid out. 

BEV versions of the B-segment 308 and 308 SW currently already exist in Europe 
To meet certain groups of consumers in the middle, plans for partial electrification will first be rolled out across its current range, including the 208, 2008, 308, 3008, 5008 and 408 (recently launched at Singapore's 2023 Motor Show). 

Surprisingly, the mild-hybrid technology - called the 'Peugeot Hybrid 48V system' - will incorporate a new-generation PureTech petrol engine producing either 98bhp or 134bhp. This will be coupled to an also-new six-speed electrified dual-clutch gearbox (E-DCS6), and include a 21kW electric motor.

Peugeot says that beyond reducing fuel consumption, low-end torque will also benefit with the system introduced. Furthermore, full-EV mode is apparently possible when driving in city traffic.

Closer to its endgame of full-electrification, what may perhaps be more exciting to fans of French SUVs was the confirmation that the successors to the 3008 and 5008 would be offered with fully-electric drivetrains. 

Set to be revealed as early as in the second half of 2023, the E-3008 will arrive first with the honour of being the first car to be launched on Stellantis Group's all new state-of-the-art STLA Medium platform.

Three electric powertrains have been outlined for the E-3008, among which an exciting dual-motor variant has been highlighted. The marathoning capabilities of future Stellantis Group EVs is also being teased with the E-3008 as their pioneer; the car will apparently boast a range of up to 700km - among one of the highest we've seen on EVs so far.

Coming together under a 'E-Lion Project' philosophy for the firm, Peugeot intends for this efforts to culminate in an even more ambitious target still. Come 2030, all new Peugeots sold in Europe will not have combustion engines.

Beyond focusing on electrification itself, efficiency, and the brand's environmental impact, Peugeot says it is targeting to create a holistic ecosystem of products and services to boost its end-to-end customer experience. It recently unveiled the sleek and futuristic Inception Concept as a taster for what future Peugeots will achieve in terms of interior space and cutting-edge technology.

In terms of the customer's experience, the brand is also exploring 'subscription-style' plans for its new EVs. These include a pay-as-you-go option, and another leasing-inspired option named 'Peugeot Your Way', which is promising to include even charging costs in a single monthly payment.
