Reservations are now open for the all-new 2008 SUV which is now available as a pure electric model, the e-2008. This is the second vehicle to fulfil Peugeot‘s new philosophy of ‘choose your Peugeot, choose your powertrain’ joining the recently launched e-208 hatchback.
Buyers will be able to reserve the larger e-2008 SUV in GT Line trim from £35,500 before deducting the UK Plug-in car grant, currently set at £3,500. The all-new model will also be available later in Active, Allure and GT trim levels which will see the pricing fall. GT Line and GT trims feature full LED headlights with smartbeam assist, LED rear lights with PEUGEOT’s ‘three-claw’ signature graphic, as well as an interior with Adamite green colour stitching, mood lighting, dynamic seats and aluminium pedals.
Fleet and company car drivers benefit from low company car tax rates. The zero-emission, all-new e-2008 SUV will be exempt from paying Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) tax from April 2020 onwards, while customers opting for the efficient 1.2 PureTech 130 S&S 6-speed manual all-new 2008 SUV will be subject to 24% in BIK.
The e-2008 is powered by a 100kW (136bhp) electric motor mated to a 50kWh battery to provide 193 miles of range according to the WLTP calculations. Capable of rapid charging at 100kW, an 80% charge will take just 30 minutes, while a full charge using conventional 7.4kW charger will take 7.5 hours (or optional 11kW charging in 5 hours for customers with access to three-phase power).
Inside drivers will find the latest version of the PEUGEOT 3D i-Cockpit, with a compact steering wheel and a new head-up display. On the head-up display, information is projected in hologram form close to the driver’s eye-line, helping to improve reaction times. The centre console comes with a 10-inch colour touchscreen Traffic connected 3D Navigation with Apple Car and Andriod Auto as standard.
David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK said:
“The all-new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV and e-2008 SUV are the second models to follow our new philosophy of ‘choose your PEUGEOT, choose your powertrain’. With the all-new 208 and e-208 already catering for the city car buyers, the all-new 2008 SUV and e-2008 SUV will open the same exciting ownership prospects for small SUV buyers.
“The all-new 2008 SUV and e-2008 SUV have already received a lot of interest from the public, and we are excited to start deliveries early next year.”
