Peugeot to become electric-only brand in Europe by 2030, CEO says

By 2024, the entire lineup will be electrified, Jackson said. The next scheduled major launch is the next-generation 3008, which will be built in full-electric form at Stellantis’ factory in Sochaux, eastern France. Peugeot has not revealed details of other powertrain options.

She said about 20 percent of 208 sales were full electric, a figure higher than initial projections of 10 to 15 percent. Sales for the e-2008 are slightly lower, which reflects that it is the main vehicle for many buyers, she added.

“The e-2008 is slightly less than the e-208, because it tends to be a first car, so customers are often looking to be able to travel long distances,” Jackson said. “They’re trying to decide if an electric car is appropriate for them.”
