Peugeot has revealed its first fully-electric passenger car.

Expected in the third quarter of this year, the e-2008 is a small SUV that will be priced
from $59,990 plus on-roads.

Pre-orders are being taken now, but stocks will be limited.

Except for the fact the e-2008 was actually launched way back in 2019 overseas, it
might be mildly exciting.

Peugeot’s Kate Gillis said the EV is an eagerly anticipated addition to the local range as
the company continues its journey to electrification.

“We are confident the e-2008 will provide discerning customers with a design-focused
electric SUV and it is with great excitement that pre-orders are opening today.”

Powered by a 100kW electric motor, together with a 50kWh battery (46.2 kWh usable),
e-2008 has a claimed range of 328km (WLTP).

Approximate charge times are: 30 minutes from 0-80 per cent capacity with a 100kW
DC charger, Five hours from 0-100 per cent capacity via an 11kW three-phase 16A
wallbox, and seven and a half hours from 0-100 per cent capacity via a 7.4kW single
phase 32A wallbox

The addition of the e-2008 further enhances the range’s desirability for city driving with
an impressive list of standard equipment including comprehensive safety features,
keyless entry with push-button start and proximity locking, gloss black and dual chrome
highlights with striking feline front styling and triple claw rear LED lights.

Distinctive features include horizontal body colour coded front grille slats and exclusive
e-badging on the front quarter and rear of the vehicle.

Stepping inside the cabin, the e-2008 features the signature Peugeot i-Cockpit along
with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Customers can choose between six colours: Orange Fusion (standard), Nera Black –
metallic ($690), Artense Grey – metallic ($690), Vertigo Blue – premium ($1050), Elixir
Red – premium ($1050), Pearl White – premium ($1050).

The e-2008 comes with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, five-year roadside
assistance and also benefits from a five-year service program.

Customers interested in pre-ordering the e-2008 are encouraged to get in contact with
their local dealer or visit this site here.
