New Peugeot 2008 goes all-electric

Peugeot just revealed that the 2008 compact SUV would be the second model to be offered in a 100% variant, alongside the diesel and petrol variants. By 2023, Peugeot’s entire model line-up will feature an electrified version.

As with current Peugeots, beginning with the formidable 508, all models now carry a familiar fanged LED lighting signature to express an aggressive front-end. The latest Peugeot’s i-Cockpit is another regular fixture.  

The New Peugeot 2008 all-electric or e-2008 is powered by a 100kW (136bhp) electric motor and 50kWh battery.The range is 310 kilometers (193 miles). Peugeot claims that the 100kW with fast charging will only take 30 minutes to charge 80% full, compared to 7.4kW and 11kW fast chargers that’ll take between eight hours and five hours. What’s more, the car works with MyPeugeot app too.

In addition, the e-2008 will feature two forms of energy recovery: selecting Drive “D” recovery and Brake “B’, something like KERS.

In looks, the e-2008 differs from the petrol and diesel variants in several ways: there’s a sparkling dichroic Lion emblem, an “e” monogram on the front side panel and tailgate and  a body colored chequered front grille. Inside, the e-2008 gets seats in Alcantara (e-2008 SUV GT), 3D digital instrument panel with hologram-effect and more.

To back the e-2008 Peugeot will introduce electric focussed services such as Easy-Charge (home/office), Public charge in Europe, Trip Planner, Mobility Pass, E-coaching via MyPeugeot app, Serenity and a whole lot more,
