On 12 September, the Peugeot e-3008 was officially introduced as the “successor” to the previous Peugeot 3008. This name line has great significance for both the parent brand and, beyond that, the Stellantis Group.
The reason for saying so is that it is the first car to use the new chassis called STLA Medium – the platform that will be used by all the electric cars of this multinational corporation in the future, including the e-5008 in the future. Near .
In terms of design, the Peugeot e-3008 is a true SUV-coupe hybrid with a sporty, curved roofline. The frame is significantly more stylish than the regular 3008 and is similar to the 4008. Surprisingly, despite such a curved roof, the volume of the rear luggage compartment is still 520 liters, which is equivalent to 3008 liters.
The interior of the Peugeot e-3008 is the least surprising point, as this area was revealed several months ago. The wheelbase of 2,739 mm (increased by 64 mm) ensures significantly more spacious cabin space for passengers, especially legroom for the rear passengers.
Meanwhile, front passengers will have access to an all-new 21-inch panoramic i-Cockpit curved screen.
There are 3 options in the Peugeot e-3008 powertrain. The lowest version uses a single front-wheel drive motor with 207 horsepower, 343Nm of torque and a 73kWh battery, giving a maximum operating range of 525 km.
Subsequently, the mid-range version still uses a motor but has better capacity (227 horsepower, torque remains the same). Additionally, the battery capacity has also increased to 98kWh for a range of up to 700 km.
Finally, the highest version adds a motor to the rear axle with a capacity of 109 horsepower and 166Nm torque. The total system capacity of this version is 316 horsepower, the operating range is 525 km like the lowest version as it uses the same battery.
However, this parameter seems quite unrealistic (partly due to Peugeot’s internal testing) and will probably be adjusted after private testing by third parties.
Both the low and high variants of the Peugeot e-3008 support fast charging from 20 to 80% in 30 minutes while the mid variant only needs 25 minutes as it uses a different battery.
Since the STLA supports medium chassis hybrid vehicles, this platform will be used to complement hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the Peugeot 3008 in the future.
Peugeot has not yet announced any specific price list for the e-3008. The pure electric versions will be available for sale from the second quarter of 2024 and the hybrid versions will be available later in the third quarter.
