DISCOVER A NEW WAY TO DRIVE

The driving pleasure and serenity of electric power delivers an entirely new experience. Feel the sharp acceleration and immediate torque, experience the serenely quiet and smooth engine, know that you do not have to use a petrol pump again and enjoy low costs-of-use thanks to reduced maintenance and low charging costs. Welcome to PEUGEOT full electric vehicles.

To begin fully enjoying your new Electric Vehicle you will need to know how to top up the battery. There are 3 ways to charge an EV, they are:

  • When the vehicle is plugged into a charging solution, either at home, work, or a public station
  • When using the vehicle in B-Mode (regeneration mode).
  • When using the footbrake. The ESP system regulates the electric motor to provide braking assistance.

DRIVING MODES

The new range of PEUGEOT Full Electric vehicles offer up to three exclusive driving modes to best suit the conditions and your driving style. The air conditioning system operates in all driving modes.

Charging Your PEUGEOT Electric Vehicle | Driving Modes: Sport

SPORT MODE

Performance and sensations are favoured.Maximum power and torque are supplied by the 136 BHP (100kW) electric motor, and the steering gets heavier with a more sporty feel.

Charging Your PEUGEOT Electric Vehicle | Driving Modes: Normal

NORMAL MODE

Suitable for daily use with maximum comfort. The mode corresponds with the standard vehicle settings. Power from the electric motor is reduced to 110 BHP (80kW) to reduce electrical consumption. Normal electric power steering.

Charging Your PEUGEOT Electric Vehicle | Driving Modes: Eco

ECO MODE

In this mode, the power and torque are limited to reduce the electrical consumption. The power from the electric motor is reduced to 80 BHP (60kW) to reduce and optimise consumption. Normal electric power steering.

ENERGY RECOVERY BRAKING FUNCTION

Charging Your PEUGEOT Electric Vehicle | Energy Recovery Braking Function

The Energy Recovery Braking Function means that during deceleration and/or braking, the vehicle’s kinetic (motion) energy is converted into electricity to recharge the traction battery. 

The electric powertrain recovers the mechanical kinetic energy, thus transforming the electric motor into a generator. This creates regenerative braking (engine).

DRIVING FUNCTION (D MODE)
Normal mode D on the gear stick gives a smoother regeneration when releasing the accelerator pedal and when braking. 

DRIVING FUNCTION (B MODE)
Recharges the battery more when the accelerator pedal is released and when braking.

Activating/deactivating the function: Once in position D, pull the gear stick to activate and pull a second time to deactivate.

CHARGING POSSIBILITIES

PEUGEOT Electric Vehicles Charging Possibilities

There are four charging modes for any electric vehicle today. PEUGEOT Full Electric vehicles have been designed to use either Mode 2, Mode 3 or Mode 4.

Mode 2: the connection between the vehicle and the charging point is performed through an electronic box on the charging cable supplied with the vehicle plugged into any standard wall socket. Please do not use any other charging device except the PEUGEOT supplied Mode 2 cable.

Mode 3: the connection between the vehicle and the charging point is performed through a specially designed cable (Mode 3). Depending on your requirements, you may need to carry a Mode 3 cable for use at public or workplace charging stations. These cables are available as an accessory from your Authorised PEUGEOT Dealership.

Mode 4: public fast-charging stations using a tethered CCS Combo 50KW DC cable.

CHARGING AT HOME

MODE 2 CABLE

Charging Your PEUGEOT Electric Vehicle At Home

Included with every PEUGEOT Full Electric vehicle, the Mode 2 cable makes charging at home easy. Simply connect the Mode 2 cable plug into a domestic plug, all the light indicators on the unit will then light up for a short moment. Once the power light is on permanently connect the charging cable to your car. Once charging begins the charge indicator will flash.

NOTE: For safety reasons, the vehicle cannot start if the charging cable is connected. Do not use an extension cord, a multi-socket or a timer to connect the vehicle. Always connect the charging cable to the charging point socket. Do not use any other home-style charging device except the PEUGEOT supplied Mode 2 Cable.

The vehicle comes standard with a home charging solution, that will plug into any 10A standard New Zealand wall socket. The charge rate of this Mode 2 cable is 1.8KW and will take 30.6 hours from 0% charge to 100% in the onboard traction battery (BEV 50KWh battery).

PUBLIC CHARGING

THE DIFFERENT PLUG TYPES

There are five plug types, however only two can be used on PEUGEOT Full Electric vehicles.

BATTERY CHARGING TIMES

Charging your EV Battery can be confusing. The battery in PEUGEOT Full Electric vehicles  is 50kW, and is designed to accept 7.4kW per hour through the onboard charger (OBC). 

It means that if your battery is completely flat, your charge times will vary depending on which type of charger you are using, Mode 2 (Home) or Mode 3 (Public, work or a home FAST charger).

A SIMPLE WAY TO WORK THIS OUT:

MODE 2 (1.8kW) means you can charge at 1.8kW per hour. 50.0kW divided by 1.8kW = 30.6 hours to charge

MODE 3 (7.4kW) means you can charge at 7.4 kW per hour (remember, the car restricts charging to 7.4kW) So you will only need 7.4 hours to charge from empty. 

MODE 4 (DC 25kW-100kW (Max) up to 80% charge in 30 minutes FAST CHARGE, then so the battery does not overheat, charging is restricted and may take another 60 minutes to charge fully.

Charging Your PEUGEOT Electric Vehicle | Battery Charging Time 50 kWH

Please note, during the charging phase of a battery, the components produce heat, wasted energy that is supplied by the charging point but not used to power the vehicle. This energy loss represents about 10% of the battery capacity and should be taken into account in the charging time according to the effective charging power available at the charging point. 

If delayed charging is not activated, as soon as the vehicle plug is plugged in, charging starts and the cable connector is locked in the socket. Whilst charging, some noises can be heard depending on the temperature of the components. Cooling pumps and fans may also be heard.
