While many manufacturers are quickly making the switch to electrification, some are well ahead of others. 

One in particular that’s leading the charge is Peugeot, which already has a wide line-up of hybrid and electric models on offer, and its range is continuing to grow at an alarming rate. 

Let’s take a look at what the 2023 Peugeot electric and hybrid range has to offer. 


Peugeot e-208

The e-208 is Peugeot’s most popular EV, and combined with the regular petrol-powered 208, was the best-selling across Europe in 2022. It’s easy to see why, as its relative affordability, stunning design and high-quality interior are all able to set it apart from rivals. 

Equipped with a 50kWh battery, the e-208 is able to travel up to 224 miles on a charge, though Peugeot is introducing an upgraded model later in 2023 that will bring a 250-mile range. 


Peugeot e-2008

The e-2008 is another popular model in Peugeot’s line-up, and brings a chunkier crossover bodykit and more space than the e-208. An ideal model for smaller families, it’s also available with a range of technology, including the French firm’s acclaimed i-Cockpit digital driver display. 

It also comes with a 50kWh battery, with Peugeot claiming a range of up to 214 miles from a full charge. Just 30 minutes is also needed to charge the battery from zero to 80 per cent. 

308 Hybrid

If you aren’t quite ready to make the switch to a fully-electric model, a plug-in hybrid is well worth considering. Peugeot’s 308 Hybrid is a great choice too, with its combination of a 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor producing up to 222bhp. 

The firm also claims up to 37 electric miles can be completed from a charge, while Peugeot’s latest 308 is a very impressive hatchback, particularly from a style point of view. 

308 SW Hybrid

If you’re looking for a bit more space, the 308 SW is most certainly worth a look. This estate car boasts a practical boot that makes it an ideal choice for families while retaining the same hybrid setup as the 308 hatchback.

It can also manage up to 37 electric miles from a charge, and is an ideal choice for company car users thanks to its low tax rates.

Peugeot’s second-generation 3008 has been a milestone car for this French brand, and while the firm might be ready to introduce a next-generation model, there’s still a lot going for this car. 

It’s available with a choice of hybrid powertrains – a front-wheel-drive 222bhp and a four-wheel-drive model with a powerful 296bhp, which can sprint from 0-60mph in under six seconds. Peugeot also claims an impressive electric range of up to 41 miles. 

408 Hybrid

The 408 is a brand-new entry to Peugeot’s line-up, and combines a sleek fastback design with a chunkier SUV body. It’s a fantastic piece of design, and one Peugeot hopes will get people talking. 

The 408 is practical and has a great interior, and can also be had as a plug-in hybrid, with outputs of 178bhp and 222bhp on offer. Using the same setup as found in the 308 and 308 SW, Peugeot claims a range of up to 40 miles. 

508 Hybrid

If you want a hybrid that stands out from the crowd, Peugeot’s 508 is well worth considering. It’s a blend of a saloon and a fastback, and remains a great piece of design, even several years after it was revealed. 

It’s available with a range of high-end technologies too, while it’s 1.6-litre petrol-electric setup can travel up 34 miles on electricity at a time. 

508 SW Hybrid

The 508 SW estate adds greater practicality into the mix, but never at the expense of style, as this remains a stunning-looking model. 

The 508 can also be had in a ‘Peugeot Sport Engineered’ form, abbreviated to PSE. Using a 1.6-litre petrol engine and twin electric motors, it generates an impressive 355bhp – the most of any Peugeot road car – and is brilliant to drive. 


Peugeot e-Rifter

If practicality is a real priority, it’s hard to beat a van-based MPV, with Peugeot’s Rifter being a great choice. You can also choose it with a purely electric powertrain, which would make for a great urban family car. 

Available in two lengths and with up to seven seats, it uses the same 50kWh battery as smaller electric Peugeot models, and allows for a claimed 173-mile range. 


Peugeot e-Traveller

Toyota has really led the way when it comes to the development of hybrid models, with this Japanese firm being an early innovator of this type of powertrain. It remains a force to be reckoned with too, as most of Toyota’s current line-up now use a hybrid setup. 

One of the highlights is the rough-and-ready RAV4, which can be had as a standard hybrid or plug-in hybrid – the latter able to travel up to an impressive 46 miles on a charge. The RAV4 also boasts a roomy interior and a great reputation for reliability.
