French carmaker Peugeot has officially introduced its new all-electric SUV, the E-3008. Available in three variants, the zero-emission vehicle boasts up to 320 horsepower and a remarkable range of 700 kilometers.

Only days ago, Peugeot tantalized fans with the first exterior images of the E-3008. Now, we dive deep into the details of this electric SUV that replaces the widely popular 3008, which saw sales of over 1.32 million units in the past seven years.

Debut on Stellantis’ STLA Architecture

The E-3008 marks Peugeot’s inaugural model developed on the STLA Medium architecture by automotive conglomerate Stellantis. The SUV measures 4.54 meters in length, 1.89 meters in width, and 1.64 meters in height, with a wheelbase spanning 2.73 meters. Its distinctive front design, highlighted by a signature luminous pattern with three claws, sharp Pixel LED headlights, and matching rear lights, emphasizes Peugeot’s unique design language.

Aerodynamics play a vital role, evident from the vehicle’s 0.28 Cx coefficient. Customers can opt for either 19-inch or 20-inch wheels.

The E-3008 will be available in two trim levels: Allure and GT. Color choices range from Obsession Blue and Ingaro Blue to Okenite White, Pearl Black, Artense Gray, and Titanium Gray. In a nod to sustainability, all chrome elements have been replaced with lacquered finishes, and a glossy black painted roof comes as standard.

Next-Gen i-Cockpit Inside

The interior showcases a choice between a curved 21-inch screen of the new Panoramic i-Cockpit or dual 10-inch digital screens merged into one panoramic display. Additionally, the central area houses the tactile i-Toggles, which are essentially shortcuts to the user’s top 10 preferred functions. The compact steering wheel retains its signature look, albeit with a revised design and new controls. Heating features are standard for the GT trim level.

Certified AGR Seats

Newly designed seats, accredited by the AGR organization, offer the choice of a leather-fabric blend or leather-Alcantara combo. Making their debut in a Peugeot model, the front seats now come equipped with adaptive side supports.

Enhanced Air Quality and Audio System

One of the standout features is the advanced system that monitors and ensures the quality of air entering the cabin. Paired with the Clear Cabin system, the vehicle effectively filters harmful gases and particles, ensuring that passengers breathe cleaner air. Inside, the SUV also boasts a top-tier Focal audio system with 10 speakers, offering an immersive sound experience. Storage hasn’t been overlooked either: with 17 storage spaces summing up to a total of 34 liters and a trunk space identical to the current 3008 model, boasting a 520-liter capacity.

Diverse Power Options

As hinted earlier, the Peugeot E-3008 will be available in three motor versions. The base model features a single electric motor with front-wheel drive, 210 HP, 343 Nm of torque, a 73 kWh battery, and a range of 525 kilometers. The Long Range variant upgrades to a 98 kWh battery, promises a remarkable 700 kilometers of autonomy, delivers 230 HP, and maintains the 343 Nm torque. The top-of-the-line version incorporates dual electric motors, pumping out a total of 320 HP, a 73 kWh battery, and maintains the 525-kilometer range.

The 400V lithium-ion battery is equipped for both AC charging of up to 22 kW and rapid DC charging reaching up to 160 kW. Drivers are given flexibility with four driving modes (Normal, Eco, Sport, and 4WD) and three regenerative braking settings, easily adjustable using paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.

Hybrid powertrains, both plug-in and non-plug-in, will also be available in specific markets. Safety features encompass the Drive Assist Plus for semi-autonomous driving, adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go, lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking with collision alert, Driver Attention Alert, and blind-spot monitoring.

Production and Launch Details

Peugeot’s E-3008 will be rolling off the production lines at the Sochaux plant in France. Market enthusiasts should mark their calendars as the launch is slated for February 2024.
