Peugeot started 2022 by accelerating its electrified vehicles. Starting January in Europe, focusing passenger vehicle offerings – embodied by the compact Rifter and Traveler/Expert Combi – on pure electric vehicles only.
Professionals, companies and families benefit from Peugeot’s best electric technology to bring their customers, partners and loved ones in the ultimate in comfort with no emissions, no noise, no vibration, no odor and no shifting.
“Peugeot is already at the forefront of electric mobility: 75% of our passenger cars and 100% of commercial vehicles are already powered by electricity. By 2021, every six vehicles sold by Peugeot in Europe will be powered by electricity,” said Linda Jackson, CEO of Peugeot.
Linda added that in November it had reached one electric Peugeot for every five units sold. This shows that Peugeot has the right offer for its customers and the demand for electric vehicles continues to grow rapidly.
With room for 5 or up to 7 passengers, the Peugeot e-Rifter is equipped with a 100 kW/136 hp electric motor and a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery enabling a range of 280 km (according to the WLTP cycle).
As for the Peugeot e-Traveller, it is available in three body lengths and with a choice of two 50 and 75 kWh batteries that drive a 100 kW/136 hp electric motor. Allows transporting up to 9 people very comfortably. Has a range of up to 330 km (75 kWh battery, WLTP cycle).
For customers who need a simpler People Mover with the same capacity, the Peugeot e-Expert makes shared electric mobility even more accessible. If you want further distance to support mobilization, there is a 50 kWh battery, while the Peugeot battery can be charged up to 80% in just 30 minutes at a DC fast charging station.
At Peugeot, electrification also plays a role in plug-in hybrid technology – already present in the Peugeot 3008 SUV or 508 sedan and SW – and in purely battery-based settings – as in the e-Rifter and e-Traveller, but also in the e-208 and e -2008.
The recently launched Peugeot 308 will be the first Peugoet to feature the full range of electrification technologies: a plug-in hybrid version, already available since launch, and a full-electric battery version due in early 2023 for both sedan and SW options.
