Next-gen Peugeot 308 Arrives This Year With a Choice of Powertrains

The third-gen hatchback offers a range of petrol, diesel, mild- and plug-in hybrid, as well as pure electric powertrains. The Peugeot 308 will hit the road in 2022, after the reveal in late 2021.

Updates will happen in the cabin and exterior design. Like the latest models of the brand, the next Peugeot 308 will get a digital upgrade.

Two architectures – e-CMP and EMP2 – can be used to bear the 308. The first is able to accommodate petrol, diesel and all-electric powertrains, the second – EV and plug-in hybrid ones.

Expect a 48-volt mild-hybrid technology to be used in the next 308 too.

The new Peugeot 508’s 1.6-litre 355-bhp (265 kW) petrol-electric powertrain can carry over to the 308.

In addition, a less powerful but more efficient 1.6-litre plug-in hybrid system with 222-bhp (166 kW) and over 30 miles of electric range will be apparently offered for the next 308.

A new Citroen C4 rides on e-CMP, while the upcoming DS 4 will have the revised EMP2 platform. The new Peugeot 308 will likely utilize EMP2 rather than CMP.

The Peugeot 308 should receive a new electrified dual-clutch transmission – a development of Punch Powertrain.
