Peugeot confirms 435-mile range for new E-3008 SUV

Peugeot has officially pulled the covers off its new E-3008 and confirmed the electric 'fastback' SUV will be able to travel up to 435 miles on a full charge.

The French firm published the first photographs of the car last week, but has now fleshed out details of its third-generation 3008 including full battery and performance stats. 

When it goes on sale in February 2024, buyers will have the choice of just Allure and GT trims initially, and three battery and motor combinations. 

The Standard Range model will use a 207bhp electric motor to drive the front wheels. A new 73kWh battery pack will give a range of 326 miles WLTP tested, and it has a charging speed of 160kW allowing a 20% to 80% top-up to be completed in 30 minutes. The Standard Range will get from 0-62mph in 8.7 seconds and top out at 105mph.

E-3008 gets Peugeot's next generation i-Cockpit

The Dual Motor model uses the same 73kWh battery pack and 207bhp motor combo, but adds a 108bhp motor on the back axle to give four-wheel drive. With a combined 318bhp, it's naturally the quickest E-3008 in the range with a 0-62mph sprint time of 6.4 seconds.

Topping the line-up is the Long Range, which gets a new 98kWh battery pack and a more potent 227bhp electric motor driving the front wheels. Peugeot claims the Long Range can cover up to 435 miles before it'll need to be topped up, and a 20% to 80% top up will be 'under' 30 mins, says the firm, but it has the same 160kW maximum charging speed. Plug-in and 'self-charging' hybrids will be available at a later date. 

The choice of different battery packs and the number of motors is a new development for Stellantis – Peugeot's parent company. Up to now, Peugeots such as the E-308 and E-2008 have only come with one battery and motor combination.

The massive gains in range are thanks to the E-3008's sleeker design – which reduces drag – and its brand new electric car platform. The E-3008 is the first Stellantis model to use its new STLA Medium electric architecture, which features larger motors, over-the-air updates and the new 400-volt 73kWh and 98kWh battery packs. STLA Medium also supports vehicle-to-load and comes with an 11kW three-phase charger, with a 22kW three-phase charger available as an option. 

Imposing face for new E-3008 which features slimmer headlights and 'three-claw' LED daytime-running lights

The E-3008 features a more coupe-SUV look compared to the previous 3008. There are slimmer headlamps than before, now incorporating Peugeot's distinctive 'three-claw' LED daytime running lights, and a body-painted grille design featuring the latest Peugeot 'shield' logo. Towards the back, high-set taillights are a nod to the Peugeot 408 and a roof spoiler aids aerodynamics. Flush-fitting windows and aerodynamic 19- and 20-inch wheels are another 408 design theme.

While the new car features a more coupe-like roofline compared to before, boot room, at 520 litres, is the same as the outgoing 3008 SUV. Upfront, meanwhile, the E-3008 is the first Peugeot to get the firm's next generation i-Cockpit, which incorporates the driver and infotainment displays into one curved 21-inch screen. There's also an 'i-Toggle' screen in the centre of the dash that allows up to 10 different shortcut buttons to be created by the driver.

Allure trim will feature half-leather effect and half (recycled) fabric seats, a rear view camera, 19-inch wheels and full LED headlights, while GT will add two-tone paintwork, 20-inch wheels, pixel-LED headlights and wireless phone charging, along with other features.

Peugeot is remaining tight-lipped about pricing, but we would imagine prices will kick off at around £40,000 when it goes on sale in February 2024 – in line with the Volkswagen ID.4.
