New 2008 Includes Electric e-2008
Peugeot has revealed the all-new 2008 compact SUV and confirmed an electric e-2008 will be available.
The new model will arrive early next year, offering a range of petrol and diesel engines alongside the electric model.
It features sharper styling and Peugeot’s latest 360-degree i-cockpit.
A larger wheelbase should provide more interior space, although the roof line is lower to improve aerodynamics and looks. Boot volume is 360 litres across all powertrains.
The e-2008 SUV is powered by a 138PS electric motor and 50kWh battery. It can achieve a range of 193 miles under WLTP.
Capable of supporting 100kW rapid charging technology, Peugeot says an 80% charge will take just 30 minutes, while a full charge using conventional fast chargers will take between five and eight hours.
There will also be three petrol and one diesel engine to choose from, based on Peugeot’s existing three-cylinder 1.2 PureTech petrol engine and the four-cylinder 1.5 BlueHDi diesel.
Driver assistance systems will include adaptive cruise control with stop and go function and autonomous parking assist.
A suite of connected service will be offered to support drivers with the e-2008, including remote climate activation and trip planning.
Trim levels will include the core Active, fleet-friendly Allure and sportier GT-Line and GT.
Prices and specifications will be released closer to the cars launch.
