Peugeot reveals new electrified 408

Tom Barnard


Peugeot has pulled the covers off a new 408, which it claims is “a new fastback silhouette at the top of the C segment”. 

With a height of 1.48m, a length of 4.69m and a long wheelbase of 2.79m, the new 408 is slightly smaller than a BMW 3-Series but claims to deliver impressive interior space. The boot is also generously sized, with a maximum volume of 536 litres, which can be increased to 1,611 litres with the rear seats folded down. 

The 408 will be available with a range of powertrains, including two Plug-in Hybrids with 180 and 225hp. An all-electric 408 will follow in 2024. 

The battery on both plug-in hybrid versions has a capacity of 12.4kWh and an output of 102kW. Two types of on-board charger are available: a 3.7kW single-phase charger as standard and an optional 7.4 kW single-phase charger. No official range or consumption figures have been released, but will be revealed ahead of the car hitting showrooms at the beginning of 2023.
