After publishing the first images, the all-new Peugeot e-3008 has now been revealed. Everything you need to know about the new model.
Success is what we can say about the second generation of Peugeot 3008. After seven years and more than 1.32 million units sold, the car is ready to pass the certification to a new generation.
However, for those advocating “evolution in continuity”, which is perhaps the most logical option, Peugeot risks “mixing it up and doing it again”, as if it were reinventing one of its core models.
The new Peugeot 3008 thus takes on a new silhouette, distinct from its predecessor, and gives full prominence to the new 100% electric variants, called the e-3008. Will it be worth the risk? we will see.
Razão Automóvel went to Sochaux, France to see the new Peugeot e-3008 for themselves and we’ve collected everything you need to know about the new model in nine points.
We have to give credit to Peugeot for not using the term “SUV-coupé” to define the new 3008, but rather the term fastback It was used extensively. Technically, it is more correct to define it this way, given the roofline it offers.
Peugeot’s decision to invest in this format remains strange. Not only because of the successful formula of its predecessor, but also because there is a 408 in the range with a similar roofline. The 408 is much longer and lower, but its influence on the new 3008 is clear.
One of the justifications for this roofline relates, above all, to aerodynamic issues, an essential factor for any electric car.
Peugeot announces the coefficient of aerodynamic drag (Cs) is only 0.28, which is very good, considering that it is a high-altitude SUV (1641 metres).
…but it promises space and there’s a new cockpit
Speaking of dimensions, the new 3008 grows in all directions compared to its predecessor. It is 9.5 cm (4542 m) long, 5.4 cm (1895 m) wide and 1.7 cm (1641 m) high, and the wheelbase has increased by 6.4 cm (2.73 m).
It might be hard to keep calling it a compact SUV, but Peugeot talks about high levels of habitability, and despite that roofline, the new 3008 claims a boot capacity of 520 litres. Exactly the same as its predecessor, and this value is for all 3008 cars, whether electric or combustion.
Inside, the new panoramic cockpit, standard on the e-3008 GT, also stands out. The system’s big novelty is the 21-inch curved display – oriented towards the driver – but it maintains a relationship between the steering wheel and the instrument panel that still doesn’t meet consensus today.
Peugeot had already detailed the panoramic cockpit before unveiling the new 3008. Get to know her better.
The platform debuted in Stellantis
In this case there is no error. The new generation Peugeot 3008 is completely new in its entirety, debuting on Stellantis’ new STLA Medium platform.
The new platform was developed with a particular focus on 100% electric proposals, incorporating a 400V architecture and allowing a range of up to 700 km, thanks in part to the use of higher capacity batteries, up to 98 kWh.
The new 3008 is the first model to use STLA Medium, but we will see it gradually make its way to the majority of C and D segment proposals across all Stellantis brands.
The highlight is the suspension, which becomes independent on both axles in all versions – a false MacPherson strut in the front and Multiple link Rear —, when the predecessor had a semi-rigid rear axle.
One, two… three electric types
The third generation of the 3008 is the first to have a 100% electric version, but there will actually be three:
- Electric 210 – single front motor, 157 kW (213 hp) and 343 Nm, 73 kWh battery, range 525 km;
- 230 Long Range Electric – single front motor, 170 kW (231 hp) and 343 Nm, 98 kWh battery, 700 km range;
- 320 electric drive 2WD — two motors (one for each axle), 240 kW (326 hp) and 343+166 Nm, 73 kWh battery, 525 km range.
The efficiency of the powertrain is demonstrated by the combined consumption (WLTP) of 13.9 kWh/100 km for the 73 kWh versions, with the Long Range 98 kWh increasing this value to 14 kWh/100 km.
This is despite the fact that the lightest model e-3008 weighs 2114 kg (!). The twin-motor variant raises that figure to 2,199 kg, while the e-3008 model equipped with the larger battery weighs 2,174 kg.
There are also paddles behind the steering wheel, but they are not used to change gears – after all, they all have a fixed ratio. However, it allows you to change the intensity of regenerative braking, which has three levels.
It will have hybrid engines, but not in all markets
And combustion engines… where are they? In this international premiere, Peugeot focused all its attention on the e-3008 electric car, leaving the announcement of the 3008’s engines, which include combustion engines, for later.
However, we do know that electrified combustion engines will be added, under the Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid designations. However, it may not be available in all markets.
In the case of the hybrid, we suspect it’s the latest development of the 1.2 PureTech, which received an award System Mild hybrid 48 volts.
In Plug-in Hybrid, it remains to be seen what the new 3008 hybrid will be like Delivery in The specifications of the current model will develop, whether in terms of the kinetic chain or independence.
Sustainability is the word on every manufacturer’s lips today, and Peugeot is no different.
To add “weight” to the discourse, the French brand points out that more than 500 kilograms of “green” materials, including metals and polymers, were used in the new 3008.
Steel and aluminum account for 60% of this value, and there are also 30 polymer parts made from environmentally friendly materials. In addition, bumpers, SpoilersThe storage boxes and mats are made from recycled plastic.
Perhaps the most interesting detail in this new e-3008’s environmental commitment is the lack of chrome plating (it has been replaced by paint), with the European directive expected to come into force to eliminate chrome plating. In addition to being better for the environment, it also has benefits for human health.
Also in favor of the sustainability argument, the new Peugeot 3008 will be produced “at home”, at the Sochaux (France) plant, with the e-3008 battery production site not too far away, in Mulhouse, only a short distance away. Farther than fifty kilometers.
More driving assistants
As expected, the new Peugeot e-3008 makes a strong commitment to driving assistants. It allows semi-autonomous driving (level 2) and offers more advanced functions such as semi-automatic lane changing (simply turn on the turn signal and press the OK button).
In addition to this function, it is equipped with adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go function and lane keeping assistance, as well as advanced speed recommendation.
The new Peugeot e-3008 range consists of only two equipment levels: Allure and GT. These are complemented by three optional packages.
Hey Peugeot e-3008 Allure It comes with monochrome paint, 19-inch wheels, TEP (thermoplastic elastomer) and cloth upholstery. As standard, it comes with an HD reversing camera, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and a cockpit with two 10-inch digital displays.
Hey Peugeot e-3008 GT It comes with two-tone paint, 20-inch wheels, and TEP and Alcantara upholstery.
For the Allure, it adds Pixel LED headlights, front parking sensors, a power liftgate, heated front seats and steering wheel, and a charger. smart phones induction, customizable ambient lighting (eight tones), panoramic i-Cockpit, i-Toggles and i-Connect Advanced (infotainment).
Arrives in 2024
Sales of the new Peugeot 3008 begin in February 2024, with the launch of the e-3008 Electric 210 and 3008 Hybrid (Mild hybrid). The 3008 Plug-in Hybrid launches two months later, in April.
As for the e-3008 Electric 230 Long Range and Electric 320 Dual Motor AWD, they are scheduled to arrive in 2025 only.
