While the sporty version of the Peugeot e-208 is still in the works, it should not see the light of day before the arrival of the restyled version.
The Peugeot 508 PSE has opened a new sporting chapter in the history of the brand, with its plug-in hybrid engine of 360 hp. But electric sports cars will not be forgotten, like the next Peugeot e-208 PSE. But we will have to wait a little longer before seeing it arrive on the roads.
This electric bomber should therefore see the light of day from the mid-career restyling of the city car. This is what Jean-Philippe Imparato, the former boss of Peugeot, hinted earlier this year, indicating that the next PES will arrive on a mid-career vehicle.
One of the first electric GTI
The information is non-existent at the moment. Particularly in the technical and mechanical chapter. The Peugeot e-208 PSE should however carry the current electric motor in a more powerful and torquey configuration, but also be based on an evolution of the 50 kWh battery in order to be able to support the additional vitamins without sacrificing autonomy.
The Peugeot e-208 PSE could therefore see the light of day for the 2023 vintage. In the meantime, the first supercharged Peugeot e-208 prototypes have already been seen at night in the vicinity of Satory, stronghold of Peugeot Sport.
