It’s quite a radical departure from the current model, with a bolder design and a new range of powertrains available. Orders for the Peugeot e-3008 are also now open if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on it.
Let’s take a look at what you need to know about the new Peugeot e-3008.
New Stellantis platform
Peugeot is part of a greater company called Stellantis, which also owns firms such as Vauxhall and Citroen. These companies share various elements to help keep the cost of their cars more affordable.
Showcasing just how important the new e-3008 is, this new Peugeot is the first to be based around a new platform known as STLA platform. It allows for a range of important breakthroughs, particularly when it comes to technology and powertrains.
Electric model available for the first time
It’s the powertrains of the new 3008 that are of particular importance as this SUV will be available as an electric model for the first time, and helps Peugeot to nearly complete its aim of having an EV available on every car it sells.
At launch the e-3008 is available in a single guise that brings a 207bhp electric motor with a 73kWh battery, allowing for a competitive range of 326 miles. With charging speeds of up to 160kW, Peugeot also says just 20 minutes to charge the battery from 20 to 80 per cent.
An even longer range model promising up to 435 miles from a charge is also due, along with a more conventional petrol mild-hybrid for those not yet ready for an EV.
Cool new coupe styling
The 3008’s styling has always been a key talking point about this crossover, but Peugeot has really taken things up a level with this new car.
Described as a ‘fastback’, it features more coupe-like styling than its predecessor and also gets a striking new front-end with a colour-coded pattern and Peugeot’s latest three-claw lighting signature.
All-new interior layout
Another radical change for the new Peugeot 3008 is a brand-new interior layout, as has been seen on various concept cars already. Known as the ‘Panoramic i-Cockpit’, it boasts a curved 21-inch HD curved display that is angled towards the driver.
Peugeot’s new digital i-toggles are also present, giving quick shortcut access to key functions, while there’s also a perfectly sculpted section across the centre of the car that helps to separate the driver and passenger areas.
Comprehensive standard equipment
As we’ve mentioned, the new Peugeot 3008 is now available to order, and it’s launching in two trim levels – allure and GT,
Standard equipment even on the Allure is very generous, though, and incorporates the 21-inch HD Panoramic Curved Display, along with a wireless smartphone charger, keyless entry and a reversing camera.
Above this, the GT brings pixel LED headlights, an electric boot, heated seats and an Alcantara interior
