Summary


The Peugeot e-308 is the all-electric version of the third-generation 308 hatchback and estate. The mid-sized EV became available to order in the UK in Autumn 2023.

Sharing its foundations with the Vauxhall Astra Electric, the e-308 has accumulated a decent set of UK review scores since its arrival, with verdicts ranging from average to very good. Reviewers like the Peugeot’s comfortable ride and plush interior trim, but many outlets find it hard to recommend the car over rivals in the very competitive medium electric class.

“It doesn’t stand out from rivals and it’s more expensive to buy than most of them”, says What Car?‘s Doug Revolta, who adds that the MG 5 estate offers better value for money.

Electrifying.com’s Nicola Hume agrees, commenting that the EV is “crazily expensive for a car with its limited performance and a non-prestige badge.”

That said, the Auto Trader team concludes that the e-308 is “the best version of the 308 family” as it’s “quick, quiet, cheap to run, has decent battery range, and is every bit as practical as a petrol version.”

As of April 2024, the Peugeot e-308 holds a New Car Expert Rating of B with a score of 64%. The e-308 scores top marks for its low running costs and zero tailpipe emissions, which somewhat makes up for its rather mediocre review scores.

Safety rating


Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

No safety rating

As of April 2024, the Peugeot e-308 has not been crash tested by Euro NCAP. The safety body has tested the petrol-powered 308, giving it a four-star rating in 2022, but Euro NCAP is yet to announce whether that assessment can also stand for the e-308.

Eco rating


Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

As of April 2024, the Peugeot e-308 has not been lab tested by Green NCAP.

The Green NCAP programme measures exhaust pollution (which is zero for an electric car) and energy efficiency. Electric cars are much more energy-efficient than combustion cars, so the e-308 is likely to score very highly in Green NCAP testing whenever it ever takes place. Check back again soon.
