The PEUGEOT brand has chosen to focus on 100% electric and plug-in hybrid technologies.

We group them together throughout this page under the terminology of "electric vehicles".

Difference Between Electric and Hybrid

100% electric vehicle

The instantaneous engine power of our 100% electric models offers incomparable performance and driving dynamics.

An electric car can be less expensive to maintain with less frequent visits to workshops and less wear on certain parts.

Their high-capacity lithium-ion Polymer battery allows a range of between 148 to 225 milesdepending on the model – WLTP cycle. ​ 
Plug-in hybrid vehicle
A plug-in hybrid electric vehiclePHEV , like the New PEUGEOT 308 and the PEUGEOT 3008, offers you the best of both worlds. Electric when you want it, petrol when you need it.

Once the range of the electric motor is exhaustedbattery drained , you can connect to a charging stationin order to drastically reduce fuel consumption, PEUGEOT advises you to recharge your battery daily , or simply continue to use the petrol engine.

Compared to a conventional hybrid system, a plug-in hybrid vehicle offers a greater range in all-electric modeup to 39 miles [New PEUGEOT 308 and 308 SW plug-in hybrids] compared with only a few miles for a conventional hybrid vehicle.
