First Look at the All-New Peugeot 2008 SUV - AND its Electric Version!
Added: 19 June 2019
Photographs of the all-new Peugeot 2008 SUV and e-2008 SUV have just been released. Here’s everything that the team here at Day’s Peugeot knows so far…
Expected to arrive later this year, the exciting new 2008 SUV will be available with a choice of 100% electric, petrol or diesel powertrains.
As we have come to expect from Peugeot, there will be class-leading levels of technology, an instinctive driving experience and sharp design. It will feature Peugeot’s latest 3D i-Cockpit® with hologram technology and a state-of-the art head-up display, increasing driver reaction times.
The all-new e-2008 SUV is powered by a 100kW (136bhp) electric motor and 50kWh battery. Under WLTP testing, the 100% electric zero-emission SUV will achieve 193 miles of range.
Capable of supporting 100kW rapid charging technology, an 80% charge will take just 30 minutes, while a full charge using conventional 7.4kW and 11kW fast chargers will take between eight hours and five hours.
With the MyPeugeot® app, owners will be able to pre-set the charging times, heating and air conditioning on their all-new e-2008 SUV, as well as check its current charge level remotely.
The all-new e-2008 SUV will feature two forms of energy recovery. Selecting Drive “D” recovery from the drive selector will feel similar to driving a standard diesel or petrol model, while Brake “B” provides more regenerative braking when lifting off the accelerator.
Unique styling cues will help set the all-new e-2008 SUV apart from its petrol and diesel counterparts whilst a 50kWh battery will be positioned under the floor, so there will be no compromise on boot or interior space.
Available in Active, Allure, GT Line and GT trim levels, both the all-new Peugeot 2008 SUV and all-new e-2008 SUV versions will be available in a range of vibrant colours, including a new and exclusive metallic paint, Fusion Orange. Inside, an innovative use of colours and materials will create a modern and stylish environment. The interior environment can also be personalised with a choice of 8 RGB LED colours.
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK said, “The all-new 2008 SUV is the second vehicle introduced into the Peugeot range where the customer can choose from a conventional petrol or diesel engine, or a 100% electric variant without compromising on technology, looks or driving sensations.
We strongly believe in choosing your Peugeot and then choosing your powertrain. The all-new 2008 SUV is also another step forward in our commitment of having an electrified version, across our entire Peugeot range, by 2023.”
At Day’s Peugeot, we can’t wait to see this eye-catching new Peugeot model in our showrooms. Judging from the photographs, it’s going to be a very popular SUV indeed!
