PEUGEOT unveils all-new Electric Fastback E-3008 SUV with range of up to 700kms

PEUGEOT has this week revealed the all-new electric fastback E-3008 SUV at a Press Event in Sochaux, France. PEUGEOT has transformed the E-3008, taking the creativity of its design, driving pleasure and electric performance to a whole new level. 

Linda Jackson, CEO of PEUGEOT: “The launch of the Next-Level E-3008 is a major step in PEUGEOT’s radical transformation into an alluring 100% electric brand that sets new benchmarks for design, driving pleasure and efficiency. With its exterior design, spectacular PEUGEOT Panoramic i-Cockpit®, driving pleasure and unprecedented electric performance, the Next-Level E-3008 ushers PEUGEOT into a new era as the French brand offering the widest range of mainstream electric vehicles on the market.”

The current PEUGEOT 3008 is a best-seller that has charmed more than 1,320,000 customers in 130 countries over the past 7 years. PEUGEOT is committed to offer a complete EV line-up as soon as 2025 and 100% of the brands’ sales in Europe will be electric by 2030.  PEUGEOT is entering a new era with the unveiling of its new E-3008. 

By 2025, PEUGEOT will offer the widest range of electric cars of any generalist brand in Europe, and today, PEUGEOT is replacing its best-seller with an all-new electric fastback SUV: the Next-Level E-3008. 

The PEUGEOT E-3008 is the first model to use Stellantis’ brand new STLA Medium platform, which takes the brand to the next level. This innovative platform has been designed to offer best-in-class performance for the most important criteria for customers: range (up to 700km), recharge time (30 minutes), driving pleasure, performance, efficiency and connected services and functions.

The Next-Level PEUGEOT E-3008 will be produced exclusively at the Sochaux plant in France and will be on sale in Ireland from Spring 2024. Full details of prices and specification will be announced later this year. 

The range will be based on two trim levels, Allure and GT, with 3 option packs to keep the choices simple, and three all-electric powertrains:

  • Range of 525km, 2-wheel drive, 210bhp/157kW,
  • Dual Motor with range of 525km, 4-wheel drive, 320bhp/240kW,
  • Long Range with range of 700km, 2-wheel drive, 230bhp/170kW.

Hybrid powertrains will also be available.

New exterior styling features include a new front end light signature with a seamless grille, thanks to a gradient in the colour of the bodywork, “floating” spoiler and new three-claw light signature at the rear.

The new E-3008 is available in a range of six colours, all-new Ingaro Blue, Obsession Blue, Okenite White, Pearl Black, Artense Grey and Titanium Grey.

Inside, the E-3008 the new PEUGEOT Panoramic i-Cockpit® takes driving pleasure to the next level, with a floating, curved 21-inch HD panoramic screen that combines the head-up display with the central touchscreen.  The central part of the dashboard houses i-Toggles, fully customisable touch-sensitive buttons that can be programmed to provide quick access to 10 of the user’s favourite functions.

The compact steering wheel has been a fundamental element of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® from the outset and has been extensively reworked to offer even greater driving sensations and comfort.  The controls on the compact steering wheel are new, for optimum ergonomics. They automatically detect the driver’s fingers, but are only activated when the driver presses them, to avoid any false manoeuvres.

PEUGEOT takes a further step towards semi-autonomous driving with the Drive Assist Plus system available on the new E-3008. This system assists the driver by using all the car’s sensors (cameras, radar, etc.) and information from the connected navigation system. Features include Adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function and lane-keeping assist, Semi-automatic lane change and Early speed recommendation.

A full range of active safety systems are available including Automatic emergency braking with collision warning, Active lane departure warning with lane departure correction, Driver Attention Alert, Extended recognition with digital display of road signs, Long-range blind spot monitoring, Hill Descent Control and Advanced Traction Control.

The electric motor is manufactured and produced by the STELLANTIS-NIDEC joint venture in Trémery (France).

The gearbox is manufactured and produced by Stellantis in Valenciennes (France). The ratio for the 2-wheel drive version (530km) is 9.77.

The 400V high-voltage lithium-ion battery, with a chemical composition of NMC (Nickel, Manganese and Cobalt), is located under the floor pan and supplies the electric motor for the vehicle’s traction.

The charging socket on the left rear wing offers Mode 2/3 (alternating current) and Mode 4 (direct current) connections.

For AC charging, two types of on-board charger are available to suit all customer uses and charging solutions, with an 11kW three-phase charger as standard and a 22kW three-phase charger as an option.

For DC recharging, via superchargers, the Mode 4 socket on the new E-3008 accepts a power rating up to 160kW, enabling the E-3008’s standard range battery to be recharged from 20% to 80% in 30 minutes for the standard range version, and less than 30 minutes for the Long-Range version.

To complete the line-up, the new 3008 will also be available with electrified (Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid) power units.

For the new PEUGEOT 3008, we use more than 500kg of green materials throughout the vehicle (metals + polymers):

Green steel and aluminium represent 60% of the total mass of green materials,

More than 30 polymer parts are produced with green materials,

Recycled plastic is used in bumpers, spoilers, storage bins and carpets.

The sustainable design approach is illustrated by the reduction in the number of decorative inserts on the bodywork and the removal of all chrome parts on the exterior of the new 3008.
