Peugeot has introduced or announced the e-3008 with a range of up to 700 kilometers (km)

Just four days after releasing the first photos, Peugeot has now revealed all the technical specifications for the pure electric version of the new, third-generation 3008 SUV. This model marks a significant milestone for both the French automaker Peugeot and the Stellantis group.

With this new generation, Peugeot aims to continue the excellent commercial performance of the current model. The current compact SUV, which has been on the market for seven years, has achieved 1.32 million sales in 130 markets where it is available.

Starting with the dimensions, the new e-3008 measures 4.54 meters in length, 1.89 meters in width, and 1.64 meters in height. The cargo space reaches 520 liters. The aerodynamic coefficient is announced at Cd 0.28. The pure electric version of the new 3008 is the first model to be based on Stellantis’ all-new STLA Medium platform and will be available in three power versions.

In the first version, a single electric motor is placed on the front axle, delivering 210 horsepower and 343 Nm of torque. It is combined with a 73 kWh battery, providing a range of up to 525 km on a single charge, according to WLTP testing.

Next is a more powerful version with the same 230 horsepower electric motor and identical torque. However, the Long Range version features a 98 kWh battery, offering a range of 700 km, also based on WLTP testing.

At the top of the range, there is a four-wheel-drive version with two electric motors (one per axle) and a combined output of 320 horsepower. It uses the 73 kWh battery, providing a range of 525 km.

Peugeot mentions that the e-3008 is equipped with a three-stage energy regeneration system, which can be selected using paddles on the steering wheel. The battery warranty is set at 8 years or 160,000 kilometers for 70% of its capacity.

For charging, two onboard AC chargers are available, with the standard 11 kW charger and an optional 22 kW charger. Using DC fast charging, the e-3008 accepts up to 160 kW, allowing the battery to be charged from 20% to 80% in 30 minutes with the smaller battery and in less than 30 minutes for the Long Range version.

The third generation of the popular French SUV adopts a completely new design direction, with a coupe-like appearance, similar to what was seen with the 408, featuring a liftback-style rear end.

The new 3008 debuts Peugeot’s new Panoramic i-Cockpit. It includes a curved 21-inch screen that combines the digital instrument cluster and the infotainment screen. This high-resolution screen appears to float above the dashboard and is accompanied by a new type of small steering wheel and i-Toggles switches on the center console.

The screen integrates two essential functions of the i-Cockpit. On the left side of the panoramic screen, the instrument panel combines all driving-related information (speed, power, driving aids, energy flow) positioned above the steering wheel.

On the right side of the panoramic screen, in the center of the dashboard, the touchscreen section is accessible to both the driver and the front passenger. It can be used for managing heating/cooling, navigation, multimedia, connectivity systems, and more.

The central console is spacious and comfortable, providing necessary storage space for small items and featuring a dedicated wireless smartphone charging area. This is mainly due to the relocation of the automatic transmission selector to the dashboard, located on the right side of the steering wheel, right next to the engine’s Start/Stop button.

The new steering wheel features touch-sensitive buttons that automatically recognize the driver’s finger and activate only when pressed to avoid any accidental movements.

The e-3008 offers four driving modes, selectable through a control located on the central console:

  1. Normal Mode: This is the default mode. Power and torque are slightly reduced when the accelerator pedal is pressed between 0% and 70%, while full power and torque are available when pressed over 70%.
  2. Eco Mode: Provides smoother driving and reduced energy consumption by using specific pedal settings, limiting power and torque, and reducing the performance of heating and cooling systems.
  3. Sport Mode: Offers a more dynamic driving experience with specific settings for the hydraulic steering and throttle response.
  4. 4WD Mode (on-demand): Available at speeds up to 135 km/h, this mode distributes power to all four wheels when road conditions become slippery, such as in snow or mud.

The car is available in two versions: Allure and GT. In the interior, the Allure version features monochrome finishing and leather/fabric upholstery with textured patterns. Standard equipment includes keyless entry and ignition, HD rear camera, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and lights, 19-inch aluminum wheels, Panoramic i-Cockpit with two 10-inch digital screens, and the i-Connect infotainment system.

The GT version comes with a two-tone paint job, a black roof, Alcantara upholstery, 20-inch aluminum wheels, Pixel LED headlights, front parking sensors, an electric rear tailgate, heated front seats and steering wheel, wireless smartphone charger, customizable ambient lighting, Panoramic i-Cockpit with a curved 21-inch screen, and adjustable i-Toggles switches in the center console.
