Peugeot’s first-ever electric SUV opens for reservations

By / 4 weeks ago / UK News / No Comments

Peugeot has opened reservations for the new 2008, including the e-2008 variant that heralds its first-ever electric SUV.

 

Reservations are now open for the new 2008 and e-2008

Revealed this spring and due in early 2020, the e-2008 is powered by a 136hp electric motor and 50kWh battery, bringing a WLTP-rated range of 193 miles. It’s capable of supporting 100kW rapid charging technology, giving an 80% charge in 30 minutes, while a full charge using conventional 7.4kW and 11kW fast chargers will take between 7.5 hours and five hours.

Part of Peugeot’s commitment to having electrified variants across its entire model line-up by 2023 – including the e-208 already on sale – the e-2008 is initially available to order in GT Line priced at £32,000, with Active, Allure and GT trim levels to follow later.

Peugeot has also opened reservations for the 2008, again in GT Line, priced from £26,100 and bringing a line-up of petrol and diesel engines.
