Peugeot have just given us a goo and some info on their compact SUV, the very
attractive 2008. In reality this will be a 2024 purchase for many, albeit some unit will
make their way into driveways in late ‘23. This new model comes with more tech,
new electrified powertrains, with a range in excess of 400 kilometres.
This new 2008 features a new Peugeot’s front and rear light signature and a
redesigned front end with the new Peugeot shield, that makes such a strong
statement on their eye-catching 408.
Produced at their Vigo plant in Spain, the new 2008 will go on sale in late 2023 with
a range based on three versions, Active, Allure and GT, and comes with a choice of
engines, including a new 115kW/156bhp all-electric engine that has a range of up to
406 km (WLTP combined cycle).
New colour options, innovative wheel designs, plus those definitive, Peugeot badges,
and, for the interior, new refined fabrics. Also on the inside, the car features an
updated Peugeot i-Cockpit, with a new design for the digital instrument cluster and a
10-inch central touchscreen for all models.
The Peugeot i-Connect system offers full connectivity through wireless mirroring
(Apple CarPlay/Android Auto) and enables easy access to all infotainment functions
via the “OK Peugeot” voice command.
Advanced safety and driving assistance technologies
The new 2024 PEUGEOT 2008 features several advanced safety and driving
assistance technologies, including:
• Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go Function
• Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection

• Active lane departure warning with lane correction

Those wishing to go full-electric, can opt for the new Peugeot E-2008. This model
features a new 100% electric powertrain with a range of up to 406 km (WLTP
combined cycle). The electric motor produces 115 kW (156 bhp) of power and 260
Nm of torque, providing the driver with temptation and talent in equal amounts. The
battery has a capacity of 52.5 kWh and can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes, using a
fast charger. A full charge takes 7.5 hours using a 7 kW wall-box charger.
In addition to the electric powertrain, the new PEUGEOT 2008 also features a choice
of advanced 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engines. The PureTech 100 is paired with a
six-speed manual gearbox, while the PureTech 130 can be combined with either the
EAT8 eight-speed automatic gearbox or a six-speed manual gearbox.
A Hybrid option will follow in 2024 with the new 48V HYBRID powertrain, which
consists of a new-generation 136 bhp 1.2 litre PureTech petrol engine, coupled with a
new 6-speed dual-clutch electrified gearbox that includes an electric motor.
The new 2008 retains the same exterior dimensions: 4.30 m long, 1.987 m wide
(including mirrors), 1.55 m high. The boot volume is unchanged at 434 litres (under
the parcel shelf).
