Peugeot e-2008 buying guide

What Peugeot e-2008 trim levels are there?

There are three main pillars of the e-2008 range – entry-level Active, mid-range Allure and sporty GT. You might also see Premium versions of each, as Peugeot has jiggled the trim level range a couple of times and added a little more equipment through the 2008’s lifespan.

All cars come with rear parking sensors, push-button start, automatic lights and wipers, air conditioning, LED headlights and alloy wheels. Exclusive to the e-2008, all cars also get rear USB sockets and the ability to preheat the cabin while it’s on charge.

Over Active, Allure features bigger wheels, a reversing camera, tinted rear windows and Peugeot’s fully digital instrument cluster (called 3D i-Cockpit). GT is marked out by three LED stripes in the headlights and a black roof, and also comes with lime green stitching, ambient lighting, heated front seats and front parking sensors. Top-spec e-2008s also feature a third set of Isofix points.

Peugeot e-2008 interior and technology

As a fully electric car, the Peugeot e-2008 features a power flow diagram on the sat nav screen and on the digital dials. You can also schedule when to start charging through Peugeot’s accompanying phone app. In other respects, the interior of the e-2008 matches fuel-powered 2008s and the smaller 208.

There’s a large touchscreen on top of the dashboard, angled towards the driver, sitting above a row of ‘piano key’ buttons that let you quickly get to different sections of the infotainment system – such as the climate control or navigation. High-spec cars get a larger screen that fills the bezel, but even the smaller screen fitted to lower-spec versions comes with DAB radio and Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto phone connectivity.

Peugeot e-2008 boot space and dimensions

Measuring 4.3 metres long, the Peugeot e-2008 is very slightly shorter than cars like the Ford Focus, and around 30cm longer than the e-208 hatchback. It’s around 12cm taller than e-208 at 1.55 metres, and boasts much more space inside.

The 2008 was designed from the outset to feature petrol or diesel engines and a fully electric powertrain, so there’s no loss of storage space in the e-2008. A 430-litre boot is more generous than what’s on offer in the Hyundai Kona Electric, and competitive with the MG ZS EV and Kia Niro EV.

Four adults can comfortably fit in the e-2008, and five can squeeze in if they’re friendly with each other – although rivals with flat floors will provide more legroom for the middle-seat passenger. The door bins are a good size and there’s a lidded storage cubby ahead of the gear selector that doubles up as a wireless phone charger on some versions.

Peugeot e-2008 range explained

Peugeot e-2008 50kWh electric

Powering the e-2008 is a 100kW (136hp) electric motor, hooked up to a 50kWh battery. This is a familiar powertrain that’s also used in cars like the Vauxhall Corsa-e and Citroen e-C4, and in the e-2008 it enables a 206-mile range and a nippy acceleration time. The e-2008’s power can be best felt at lower speeds, but it’s capable of motorway speeds too.

A public fast-charger will charge the battery to 80% in half an hour or less, and we’d recommend getting a home wallbox installed if you have suitable parking. Not only are electric car tariffs generally much cheaper than public fast-charge networks, but a wallbox will fully recharge the battery in under eight hours. It’ll take three times as long if you have to rely on a standard household plug socket.

Peugeot e-2008 54kWh electric

Cars produced from summer 2023 have a new powertrain with a slightly larger battery and a more powerful electric motor with 156hp. The changes enable a handy increase in range – up to 252 miles is now possible from a charge.

FAQs

A Peugeot e-2008 with a 50kWh battery is capable of up to 206 miles between charges. The actual figure will vary with your unique driving habits – the e-2008 will be much more efficient around town or at a cruise than at motorway speeds or in hilly areas. You may also find you need to charge the car more frequently in winter, when the battery is less efficient.

The top speed of the Peugeot e-2008 is 93mph provided you’re in the Sport driving mode. So it’s more than capable of driving at motorway speeds.

With 100kW fast-charging capability, the e-2008 can recharge to 80% in half an hour if you plug in to a suitably powerful charger. A home wallbox will fully recharge the battery in 7.5 hours – or much less time if you get into the habit of plugging in when you get home every day. Charging with a three-pin plug should be a last resort, as a full charge can take 24 hours.

The e-2008 lets you choose between Sport, Normal and Eco driving modes. Sport gives you full power, Normal balances performance and range, and Eco limits performance to preserve as much range as possible.

There are also two brake regeneration modes – basically off and on. The ‘moderate’ mode feels much like a petrol or diesel car, but the ‘increased’ brake mode noticeably slows you down as soon as you step off the accelerator – allowing you to essentially drive just using the accelerator pedal.

Yes, if you’re in the market for an electric SUV that looks stylish, offers plenty of space and gadgetry, boasts a long range and fast charging, then the Peugeot e-2008 is ideal. And it’s especially appealing when you buy nearly new, as the e-2008 isn’t any more expensive than an equivalent petrol model.
