Electric version of Peugeot 2008 small SUV joins e-208 hatchback in range
Peugeot has released details and pictures of the e-2008 – an SUV version of the already-revealed Peugeot e-208 electric hatchback and a sister model to the forthcoming DS 3 Crossback E-Tense.
The e-2008 comes with a 50kWh battery and an official range of 193 miles – slightly less than the 211 miles claimed by the e-208 and what potential rivals like the Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Kona Electric can manage.
However, Peugeot suggests the e-2008 will undercut those models on price. It also says the car will have a 134bhp electric motor and be capable of using 100kW rapid chargers, with an 80% top-up taking just 30 minutes.
As with the Peugeot 208, pure electric is just one of three powertrain options that’ll be offered with the 2008; diesel and petrol variants will also feature in the range. There’ll be 1.2-litre petrols with 99, 128 and 153bhp outputs, as well as a 99bhp 1.5-litre diesel.
