Peugeot’s commitment to a sustainable future
A huge change is coming in the automotive industry. There has been increased investment in electric vehicles from all manufacturers, with countries across the world committing to having net zero emissions by 2050.
We take a look at Peugeot’s approach to the electrification of its offering and some of its green initiatives.
How is Peugeot committing to a more sustainable future?
Cars don’t just contribute to pollution through their emissions – the materials used to build them also play a role. However, Peugeot aims to have an average of at least 30% green materials used across their new cars, reducing the demand for plastics derived from fossil fuels.
Any vehicle waste is traced until it is recycled, with approved dismantling firms used in a bid to recover 95% of waste vehicles and reuse or recycle 85% of parts.
Benefits of going electric
While the initial cost of switching to an electric vehicle can be daunting, you’ll likely make regular savings across its lifespan.
Charging an EV is cheaper than filling it up with petrol, while maintenance and repair costs are lower due to the reduced number of moving parts.
There’s currently no road tax to pay and you’ll get a government grant to cover part of the cost of an electric car too.
On top of all that, you’ll be doing your bit to help protect the plant.
Peugeot’s current EV line-up
There are currently four all-electric vehicles available from Peugeot. They are:
e-208: Europe’s best-selling car in 2022 is a sleek city car with a range of up to 225 miles.
e-2008: This compact SUV boasts a wealth of quality driver assistance tech, enabling you to get the utmost enjoyment out of every drive.

e-Traveller: With amazing modularity that allows for four to nine seats and a maximum boot capacity of 4,554 litres, you won’t be left wanting for space.
What’s coming next?
Peugeot intends to have an all-electric option for every model in its range from 2025.
