Peugeot Australia has confirmed it will launch multiple all-electric models next year.
According to the company’s general manager, Kate Gillis, “moving into 2022, we will be introducing full battery-electric vehicles to the Australian market”.
While stopping short of sharing specifics, she added: “Electric variants of Peugeot's light commercial vehicles are currently under consideration for local introduction.”
This statement points to the release of a combination of the e-Partner small van, e-Expert mid-size van and e-Boxer large van, although the e-2008 small SUV is still likely to beat both to the punch, partly due to its sales potential.
That said, it is still possible the e-208 light hatchback could also or instead form part of these plans, although it’s less likely to given the wider second-generation 208 range (with traditional internal-combustion engines) isn’t currently offered by Peugeot Australia.
Either way, Peugeot Australia’s electrification journey will begin in the fourth quarter this year with a pair of plug-in hybrids: the 3008 Hybrid4 mid-size SUV and 508 Hybrid Fastback mid-size sedan.
Needless to say, stay tuned as we bring you the latest on Peugeot Australia’s emerging line-up of zero-emissions vehicles.
