Peugeot has unveiled its latest electric vehicle, the e-3008, which is a fastback SUV that combines style, performance, and efficiency. The e-3008 is the first model to use the new Stellantis eVMP platform, which is designed specifically for electric vehicles and offers a range of powertrain options and battery capacities. The e-3008 is expected to go on sale in February 2024, starting at around $45,000.
What makes the e-3008 stand out?
The Peugeot e-3008 is a striking vehicle that features a coupé-like silhouette, a distinctive front grille, and LED headlights and taillights with a three-claw motif. The e-3008 also has a large panoramic glass roof that enhances the cabin's sense of space and light. The e-3008 is available in two trim levels: Allure and GT, with the latter offering more sporty and premium features, such as 20-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, and a black roof.
The e-3008 has a spacious and futuristic interior that showcases Peugeot’s i-Cockpit concept, which consists of a 21-inch curved touchscreen that integrates the infotainment and instrument cluster functions, a compact steering wheel, and a head-up display. The e-3008 also has a wireless charging pad, a 10-speaker Focal sound system, and a range of driver assistance and safety features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, and emergency braking.
The e-3008 is a versatile and practical vehicle that offers 520 liters of boot space in the single-motor versions and 470 liters in the dual-motor version. The rear seats can be folded down to increase the cargo capacity to 1,580 liters and 1,530 liters, respectively. The e-3008 also has a towing capacity of up to 1,000 kg and a roof load of up to 75 kg.
What are the powertrain and battery options for the e-3008?
The Peugeot e-3008 offers three electric powertrain options, depending on the customer’s needs and preferences. The entry-level option is the e-3008 Standard Range, which has a single front motor that produces 210 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. The Standard Range has a 73 kWh battery that provides up to 326 miles of WLTP range and can be charged from 10% to 80% in 30 minutes using a 150 kW fast charger. The Standard Range can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 8.7 seconds and has a top speed of 105 mph.
The second option is the e-3008 Long Range, which has the same single front motor as the Standard Range, but with a slightly higher output of 230 hp. The Long Range has a larger 98 kWh battery that delivers up to 435 miles of WLTP range and can be charged from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes using a 150 kW fast charger. The Long Range can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 8.9 seconds and has a top speed of 105 mph.
The third option is the e-3008 Dual Motor AWD, which has two motors, one on each axle, that produce a combined 320 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. The Dual Motor AWD has the same 98 kWh battery as the Long Range but with a reduced range of 326 miles due to the higher power consumption. The Dual Motor AWD can be charged from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes using a 150 kW fast charger. The Dual Motor AWD can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 6.4 seconds and has a top speed of 112 mph.
All the Peugeot e-3008 versions have a regenerative braking system that can be adjusted using the paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. The e-3008 also has a heat pump that optimizes the thermal management of the battery and the cabin, improving the efficiency and comfort of the vehicle.
