The year 2008 presents itself with a new look and a completely updated technical specification. The range now exceeds 400 km.

The latest Peugeot 2008 it was launched after 208 years ago.

But it’s Peugeot’s urban SUV that’s being redesigned first. This is an opportunity for the electric version to adopt improvements already announced on other models using the e-CMP base.

The improved range should make the plug-in version, which already accounted for 17% of 2008 sales by 2022, even more attractive.

Technological innovation

Everything, or almost! The E-2008 adopts Peugeot’s new electric engine for urban and compact cars, namely a 115 kW block, compared to the previous 100 kW. The result is an output of 156 HP instead of 136 HP. This engine is promised to have less energy. Also, there is a new one 54 kWh battery, compared to the previous 50 kWh. As a result, the range has increased significantly.

Although it was reduced by 345 km, it now stands at 406 km.

As for recharging, nothing changes: as usual there is a single-phase charger 7.4 kW. The 11 kW three-phase charger will remain an option. For fast charging, the maximum is 100 kW. This means you can go from 20 to 80% charge in about 30 minutes.

The new E-2008 will be launched this summer.
