New Peugeot E-3008 impresses with specifications
Peugeot deviates slightly from the more traditional design of the outgoing 3008 model with the new E-3008. The French opt for fastback styling. Of course, the typical Peugeot features remained, such as the rear lights and front lights with “lion claw” motif. The number of decorative inserts on the body has been reduced and there are no chrome parts. Like the 408, Peugeot also equips the new E-3008 with alloy wheels that contribute to its aerodynamic performance. The 19-inch or 20-inch wheels are characterized by a technical and geometric design and, of course, the new Peugeot logo.
Dimensions Peugeot E-3008
The new Peugeot E-3008 has a length of 4.54 meters, a width of 1.89 meters and a height of 1.64 meters. The wheelbase is 2.73 meters. This makes the E-3008 one of the most compact cars in the C SUV segment.
Colors Peugeot E-3008
The new Peugeot E-3008 is available in six colors. Thanks to innovative dichromatic pigments, the color Obsession Blue changes from blue to green depending on the incidence of light and the shape of the bodywork. With its subtle reflections, the all-new Ingaro Blue perfectly emphasizes the modern lines of the new E-3008. The other colors available are Okenite White, Pearl Black, Artense Grey and Titanium Grey.
The new E-3008 GT comes standard in two-tone with a gloss black roof. On the electric GT, the lower parts of the front and rear bumper, wheel arches and sill guards are also finished in gloss black.
In terms of space, the SUV makes no concessions. The second row of seats offers more than enough seating space, according to the brand, and the luggage compartment has a volume of 520 liters (regardless of engine trim), identical to that of the previous 3008. This is one of the advantages of the new STLA Medium platform.
Hold the phone, STLA Medium platform? Yes, of course! The new Peugeot E-3008 is the first model to feature Stellantis’ brand new STLA Medium platform, which also forms the basis of Stellantis’ future electric vehicles. The platform is fully scalable, both in width and length. Stellantis can therefore apply it for different models of all brands within the group. In the case of the E-3008, the STLA Medium platform accommodates a high energy density battery of up to 98 kWh. There is a total of three all-electric powertrains to choose from (WLTP cycle under approval):
- Single Engine with range of 525 km, two-wheel drive, 157 kW (210 hp)
- Dual Motor with range of 525 km, all-wheel drive, 240 kW (320 hp) (front electric motor: 157 kW & 343 Nm, rear electric motor: 83 kW & 166 Nm)
- Long Range with range of 700 km, two-wheel drive, 170 kW (230 hp)
The 400V high-voltage lithium-ion battery – with a chemical composition of NMC (nickel, manganese and cobalt) – is located under the bottom plate and powers the electric motor (or electric motors on the 4WD version). Power for other electrical consumers (lights, infotainment, etc.) comes from a 12V battery, which is fed from the high-voltage battery via the inverter.
The high-voltage battery comes in three variants (WLTP figures pending homologation):
- 73 kWh and range of 525 km
- 73 kWh Dual Motor with range of 525 km
- 98 kWh Long Range with range of 700 km
The battery uses circulating coolant for thermal management to ensure ultra-fast charging, optimized range and longer life. The heat pump (optional) also contributes to the thermal comfort of the occupants while saving battery energy. The battery is guaranteed for 8 years (or 160,000 km) with Peugeot guaranteeing a 70% charge capacity.
Normal charging and fast charging
The charging connector is located on the left rear screen and provides connections for Mode 2/3 (alternating current, AC) and Mode 4 (direct current, DC). For AC charging, two types of built-in chargers are available for all customer applications and charging solutions. An 11 kW 3-phase onboard charger is standard. A 3-phase 22 kW onboard charger is optionally available. For direct current (DC) charging via fast chargers with a Mode 4 connection, charging speeds of up to 160 kW are possible, allowing the standard battery of the E-3008 to be charged from 20 to 80% in 30 minutes. The Long Range battery has a charging time of less than 30 minutes (20 – 80%).
Smart charging options
In line with other electric cars on the market, the new Peugeot E-3008 also offers several smart charging options.
V1G or Smart Charging function: compatible with the services of energy suppliers, this function adjusts the time and power at which the battery of the new Peugeot E-3008 is charged to optimize charging costs.
V2L (Vehicle to Load) function: this very practical feature allows customers to power an electrical device via the E-3008’s high-voltage battery. For example, it is possible to charge an e-bike or operate an electric device. The system can supply a maximum of 3 kW and 16A.
Plug & Charge function: this feature simplifies the vehicle authentication procedure at a charging point. The new E-3008 is automatically identified and recognized by the “Plug & Charge” compatible charging point. The customer only needs to plug in the E-3008 to charge and bill directly, without showing a payment or ID card.
3-stage regenerative braking
The new Peugeot E-3008 offers three levels of regenerative braking. This feature makes it instinctive and easy to adjust the level of energy recovery and delay level based on one’s own preference. Using the paddles behind the compact steering wheel, the driver selects 1 of 3 levels. The left paddle increases regeneration and the right paddle decreases regeneration:
- Low (-0.6 m/s²), for a deceleration close to that of an internal combustion engine vehicle,
- Medium (-1.2 m/s²), for increased deceleration when the accelerator pedal is released,
- High (-1.8 m/s²), for maximum deceleration when the accelerator pedal is released, and thus maximum regeneration.
The last 2 levels automatically turn on the rear brake lights when decelerating.
Four driving modes for best performance
There is a choice of four driving modes, selectable via a button on the center console:
Normal: this is the default mode. Power and torque decreases slightly between 0-70% gas input; above 70%, full power and torque is available.
Eco: this driving mode provides a smoother ride and lower energy consumption by using a specific throttle setting, reducing power and torque and reducing heating and air conditioning performance
Sport: offers more dynamic handling by using specific configurations for the power steering, accelerator pedal and transmission.
4WD (if applicable): this mode is available at speeds up to 135 km/h and distributes power to all four wheels when the road surface becomes slippery (snow, mud, etc.).
Two trim levels: Allure and GT
The Peugeot E-3008 is available in two trim levels: Allure and GT. What both versions have to offer we will now briefly explain.
The Allure has a one-tone body and seat trim with half leather effect and half fabric upholstery with embossed patterns. Key standard equipment includes keyless entry and start, rear HD camera, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and lights, 19-inch alloy wheels, Peugeot i-Cockpit with two 10-inch digital panels and a Peugeot i-Connect connected infotainment system.
This top-of-the-line version has a two-tone color scheme with a black roof and alcantara upholstery. Key standard equipment includes 20-inch alloy wheels, Pixel LED headlights, front parking sensors, a power tailgate, heated front seats and steering wheel, induction charger for smartphones, customizable ambient lighting, Peugeot Panoramic i-Cockpit with curved 21-inch screen, customizable i-Toggles and the Peugeot i-Connect Advanced connected information system.
Interior Peugeot E-3008
The interior of the new E-3008 stands out. It is an evolution of the previous i-Cockpit. The French now speak of a Peugeot Panoramic i-Cockpit. During the development of the new E-3008, it was decided to combine two of the three fundamental elements of the i-Cockpit – the head-up display and the large central touchscreen. That resulted in a curved panoramic screen: a single 21-inch high-definition panel. This panel extends from the left end of the dashboard to the center console.
The panoramic display “floats” above the dashboard. This effect is emphasized by LED mood lighting, the source of which is located below the screen. Innovatively, the display is mounted on the dashboard with a mounting system that is invisible from the interior.
On the Allure version of the E-3008, the new Peugeot i-Cockpit consists of two 10-inch digital displays that form one panoramic display side by side. This gives the same floating effect as the 21-inch panel that the GT comes standard with.
i-Toggles, what are they?
In the central part of the dashboard are i-Toggles. These are fully customizable, touch-sensitive buttons that the user can program to provide quick access to ten of the user’s favorite functions: such as a favorite phone contact, starting navigation to a frequently used destination, tuning the radio to a favorite station, setting the ideal air conditioning temperature, and so on. The automatic’s controls are now located to the right of the steering wheel, next to the car’s start/stop button. Thus, the driver has all transmission controls and the engine start/stop button at his/her fingertips.
17 different storage compartments
The interior of the new E-3008 offers 17 different storage compartments, with a total volume of about 34 liters. These include an easily accessible wireless phone charger (15 W) on the center console, a cooled area under the center armrest, an eyeglass holder integrated into the roof console, cup holders and a spacious glove box. All E-3008s feature two USB-C connectors on the front of the center console, one for charging and data transfer, the other exclusively for charging.
Versions with Peugeot i-Connect Advanced have two additional USB-C sockets (for charging) at the rear of the center console for rear passengers. The Peugeot E-3008 is always equipped with three 12-volt sockets at the front and rear of the center console and in the luggage compartment. Steering wheel heater is standard on the E-3008 GT. The new Peugeot Panoramic i-Cockpit is accompanied by two new sleek and elegant control levers on the steering column and two switch paddles for regenerative braking, placed behind the compact steering wheel. In the GT version, the front seats offer seat ventilation and a massage function in addition to heating. There is also seat heating in the rear.
AQS (Air Quality System).
The new Peugeot E-3008 is equipped with AQS (Air Quality System), which constantly monitors the quality of the air entering the interior and, if necessary, automatically activates air recirculation. In the E-3008 GT, this is complemented by the Clean Cabin air treatment system, which filters pollutant gases and particles. Air quality is displayed on the right side of the panoramic screen.
Peugeot i-Connect infotainment system
The Allure trim comes standard with the Peugeot i-Connect system, including support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The technology experience becomes complete with the Peugeot i-Connect Advanced, standard on the E-3008 GT. This system features a TomTom connected navigation system with a “trip planner” feature that optimally plans trips to maximize the car’s range and facilitate charging. To calculate the ideal route, the system takes into account a wide range of factors, including distance to be traveled, battery charge level at departure, desired battery charge level at arrival, speed, energy consumption, traffic, road type, course and, of course, available charging points at the destination or along the way.
The voice recognition command “OK Peugeot” provides access to infotainment, heating and air conditioning functions, as well as the telephone. This voice recognition can now distinguish between driver or passenger commands. Peugeot i-Connect is also capable of over-the-air system updates.
The My Peugeot app
Through the My Peugeot app it is possible to locate car, receive alerts reminding the user of any maintenance requirements, but you can also remotely auto lock the car, activate the lights, sound the horn or cool or heat the interior before departure. You can also schedule loading sessions.
Also a little sustainable?
Yes, of course! For the new 3008, Peugeot uses more than 500 kilograms of green materials (metals + polymers):
- Green steel and aluminum represent 60% of the total mass of green materials,
- More than 30 polymer parts made from green materials,
- Application of recycled plastic in bumpers, spoilers, storage bins and carpets.
Driving assistance systems new Peugeot E-3008
To make maneuvering easier, this Peugeot comes standard with a rearview camera with two perspectives: a rearview or bird’s eye view. A cleaning nozzle ensures a perfect image under all conditions. Optionally, the new E-3008 is available with Peugeot VisioPark 360°, which, thanks to four cameras – placed as close as possible to the front and rear wheels – and 12 sensors around the car, provides a 360° view of the environment around the car. This makes it possible to avoid any obstacles near the vehicle.
Driving assistance systems abound. For example, the car has adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, a lane assistant with semi-automatic lane change, speed recommendation, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitoring, fatigue recognition and a collision prevention system with recognition of vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, day and night, from 7 km/h to 140 km/h.
Market launch Peugeot E-3008
Peugeot aims to offer a complete EV range as early as 2025 and even to sell exclusively 100% electric cars in Europe by 2030. A key player in future plans is the all-new Peugeot E-3008. The market launch is in February 2024. In early 2024, Peugeot will also provide more information about the new, also fully electric, Peugeot E-5008. The new Peugeot 3008 will also eventually be available with electrified (hybrid and plug-in hybrid) powertrains. More details will be announced by Peugeot at a later date.
Peugeot produces the new E-3008 exclusively at the Sochaux plant in France. The STELLANTIS-NIDEC joint venture in Trémery, France, produces the electric motors. The single-stage transmission is manufactured by Stellantis in Valenciennes, France. The batteries are designed at the Stellantis plant in Mulhouse, then the packages are assembled at the Sochaux plant, where the E-3008 also rolls off the assembly line.
