the compact plug-in hybrid has its station wagon

Peugeot presented the new Peugeot 308 in its station wagon version, which retains the name SW. Compared to the sedan version, it is above all the design and the livability which evolve, the offer in terms of engine remaining strictly identical.

Peugeot presented its new 308 three months ago, the compact starting a new life with its third generation. This is the first time that the Frenchwoman has embarked on a rechargeable hybrid engine, and it is now available in station wagon.

Indeed, the Lion brand presented the new Peugeot 308 SW, which sports a new design on the rear. It is obviously in its dimensions that this station wagon version is distinguished from the sedan.

The Peugeot 308 SW is 4.64 meters in length, or 28 centimeters longer than the 4.36 meters of the compact. Extended by 5 centimeters, the wheelbase now extends to 2.73 meters.

In addition to the design, Peugeot has taken care of aerodynamic efficiency, with a Cx of 0.277 which will optimize consumption. Modularity is also present with a 40/20/40 bench. The 308 SW offers plenty of storage and a boot volume ranging from 608 to 1,634 liters.

Two hybrid engines for the 308 SW

On the engine side, the offer is similar to what the sedan offers. There are three petrol versions, two diesel engines and above all the two plug-in hybrid versions. For the latter, Peugeot offers the Hybrid 180 e-EAT8 and the Hybrid 225 e-EAT8. Both versions are coupled to a 12.4 kWh battery which offers around 50 kilometers of range.

Inside, nothing changes either, this 308 SW taking over the new version of the Peugeot i-Cockpit.

The new Peugeot 308 SW will be marketed in November 2021. Unlike the compact, the prices are not yet known. An electric version will arrive in two years with the new eVMP platform, as for the sedan.
