Peugeot Electric Car Charge Times

If you’re considering purchasing a Peugeot electric car or SUV, you will likely be doing a lot of research into which model is best suited to you as well as whether you opt for hybrid or electric.

Hybrid cars mean there is electric energy, plus another form of energy, usually petrol or diesel (eliminates the range anxiety associated with electric cars). A pure electric car uses electric energy alone (long journeys might cause range anxiety).

Range anxiety is when you find yourself in a situation whereby you need to access an electric charge point as you won’t have enough electric charge to get you home.

This often occurs on long journeys where you need to factor in a stop to re-charge the vehicle. If you are travelling on a motorway, this is less of an issue as electric charge points can be found at motorway service stations, but in more rural areas, electric charge points are few and far between.

Peugeot e-208

The Peugeot e-208 is a compact hatchback which can achieve an 80% charge in just 30 minutes using a rapid charger (100kW), 6h 02m using an accelerated charger (22kW) and 19h 29m using a domestic socket (7.4kW).

Peugeot e-2008

The Peugeot e-2008 is a compact SUV that can achieve an 80% charge in just 30 minutes using a rapid charger (100kW), 6h 02m using an accelerated charger (22kW) and 19h 29m using a domestic socket (7.4kW).

Peugeot e-Rifter

The Peugeot e-Rifter is an MPV that can achieve an 80% charge in just 30 minutes using a rapid charger (100kW), 6h 02m using an accelerated charger (22kW) and 19h 29m using a domestic socket (7.4kW).

Peugeot e-Partner

The Peugeot e-Partner is a compact van that can achieve an 80% charge in just 30 minutes using a rapid charger (100kW), 6h 02m using an accelerated charger (22kW) and 19h 29m using a domestic socket (7.4kW).

Peugeot e-Traveller

The Peugeot e-Traveller 50kWh can achieve an 80% charge in just 30 minutes using a rapid charger (100kW), 6h 02m using an accelerated charger (22kW) and 19h 29m using a domestic socket (7.4kW).

The Peugeot e-Traveller 75kWh can achieve an 80% charge in just 45 minutes using a rapid charger (100kW), 9h 03m using an accelerated charger (22kW) and 29h 14m using a domestic socket (7.4kW).

We simulated these charge times using a charge percentage of 80% with a 7.4kW on board charger.

What factors can affect charge time?

There are multiple things that can affect the time it takes to charge a vehicle:

On-Board Charger

Although we have used the 7.4kW on board charger for the purpose of this article, there is also a 11kW option which offers faster charging in some instances.

Battery Capacity

If the battery capacity is higher, it can hold more charge, so it’s a better option on longer journeys.

Charging Cable

You should always use the recommended charging cable as one that is too small can reduce the charge time.

Battery Charge

Vehicle charging is fastest between 20% and 80% so if your charge dips below 20%, it can take longer to charge back up.

Outside Temperature

If the outside temperature is cold, it can take longer to re-charge an electric vehicle.
