THE all-new Peugeot 2008 SUV will be the second vehicle to follow the ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain’ philosophy when it arrives later this year and will be available with a choice of 100 percent electric, petrol or diesel powertrains.

As well as the powertrain choice the new 2008 SUV features Peugeot’s latest 3D i-Cockpit with hologram technology and a state-of-the art head-up display, increasing driver reaction times.

For those contemplating a switch to pure electric power, the all-new e-2008 SUV is powered by a 100kW (136bhp) electric motor coupled to a 50kWh battery. Under Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) testing, the 100 percent electric zero-emission SUV can achieve a range of 193 miles.

Capable of supporting 100kW rapid charging technology, an 80 percent charge will take just 30 minutes, while a full charge using conventional 7.4kW and 11kW fast chargers will take between eight hours and five hours.

With the MyPeugeot app, owners will be able to pre-set the charging times, heating and air conditioning on their all-new e-2008 SUV, as well as check its current charge level remotely.

The all-new e-2008 SUV will feature two forms of energy recovery. Selecting Drive ‘D’ recovery from the drive selector will feel similar to driving a standard diesel or petrol model, while Brake ‘B’ provides more regenerative braking when lifting off the accelerator.

The 50kWh battery is positioned under the floor of the all-new e-2008 SUV, so there’s no compromise to boot or interior space whichever powertrain is selected.

A series of unique styling cues will help set the all-new e-2008 SUV apart from its petrol and diesel counterparts:

The all-new e-2008 SUV is the second 100 percent electric vehicle from Peugeot, following on from the all-new e-208 announced earlier this year with Peugeot pledging that by 2023, its entire model line-up will feature an electrified version.

If you are still not sure if the electrification route is best for you then the all-new Peugeot 2008 SUV can still be ordered in both petrol and diesel guise.

The new model features the latest Euro 6d petrol and diesel engines, with three petrol and one diesel engine to choose from, based on Peugeot’s three-cylinder 1.2 PureTech petrol engine and the four-cylinder 1.5 BlueHDi diesel.

Pricing and full UK spec will be announced nearer the new model’s launch date.
