Dynamic PEUGEOT e-2008 launches in Australia

September 2023: The PEUGEOT e-2008 Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) debuted in Australia's burgeoning electric vehicle segment in September 2023 - offering power, efficiency, and style in one impressive package. With its advanced electric drivetrain, spacious interior, and cutting-edge technology, the e-2008 SUV also represented PEUGEOT Australia's first-ever battery electric passenger vehicle.

At the heart of the e-2008 SUV is its state-of-the-art electric motor and 50 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, delivering a maximum power output of 100 kilowatts and 260 newton-metres of torque. The benefits of its electric driveline include instant acceleration and a smooth, quiet ride. Multiple driving modes, including Normal, Eco, and Sport, allow drivers to tailor their experience to take maximum advantage of the e-2008's potent drivetrain.

Charging the e-2008 SUV is easy with both AC and DC charging capability. Charging from zero-to-80 per cent via a 100kW DC fast charger takes approximately 30 minutes, whereas charging via a three-phase wall-box from zero-to-100 per cent takes approximately five hours1.

Bold exterior design

The exterior styling of the PEUGEOT e-2008 SUV is a harmonious blend of modernity, elegance, and sportiness. The unique styling starts at the front with PEUGEOT's signature 'lion-claw' headlamps and 'fang' daytime running lamps, which are punctuated by an e-2008 unique vertical, body-coloured chequered front grille with contrasting black insets.

Unique ten-spoke, 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels with black inserts are functional and pleasing to the eye. Another distinct element of the e-2008 SUV's exterior is the conveniently placed charging port on the front fender. This allows for easy access and hassle-free charging.

The rear is equally captivating, with sleek LED taillights featuring PEUGEOT's signature three-claw design. The subtle nods to the e-2008's all-electric drivetrain continue with an 'e' monogram and a dichroic Lion emblem, which changes colour from different angles fitted to the tailgate.

Sharp interior styling

The e-2008 SUV is equipped with PEUGEOT's innovative i-Cockpit™, which includes a compact steering wheel, a customisable 10-inch digital instrument cluster, and a heads-up display. This driver-focused cockpit enhances visibility and ergonomics, providing a more engaging and enjoyable driving experience.

Complimenting the e-2008's i-Cockpit™ is an uncluttered dashboard which showcases a large central touchscreen display that seamlessly integrates with the overall design. The centre screen area is the control point for the climate-control air conditioning, audio system (including DAB+ radio), Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity2, 3D navigation and Bluetooth smartphone connectivity.

This technology focused interior is embellished with eight customisable ambient lighting options, wireless smartphone charging, multiple USB ports, 3D satellite navigation, 180° reverse camera and voice recognition.

The spaciousness of the rear seats makes the PEUGEOT e-2008 a particularly versatile SUV, with  twin USB ports for rear passengers and a 60:40 split fold rear bench. Enveloping the entire cabin is a premium, mistral black interior roof lining paired with black roof pillars to the cabin adding to the cockpit feel.

Also framing the e-2008 SUV, a premium panoramic glass opening sunroof comes as standard.

An exceptional platform and safety

The PEUGEOT e-CMP platform has brought about a significant transformation in the compact SUV segment with the introduction of the PEUGEOT e-2008. This platform, specifically designed for electric vehicles, offers exceptional performance, advanced technology, and a sleek design, providing an unparalleled driving experience.

PEUGEOT e-2008 leverages this high level of modularity, combined with a variety of chassis parameters, to achieve a wide, low and long stance without sacrificing interior space or performance. The e-2008 SUV equipped with the e-CMP platform features advanced driver-assistance systems including: Adaptive cruise control with stop and go function, Autonomous emergency braking, Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Lane Departure Warning with unmarked edge protection, Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS) and the Traffic Safety Suite.

Responsive and refined drivetrain

The PEUGEOT e-2008 SUV features an impressive drivetrain that combines power and efficiency. This all-electric SUV is equipped with a state-of-the-art electric motor and battery system, providing a thrilling and efficient driving experience.

At the heart of the e-2008 SUV's drivetrain is a 50kWh lithium-ion battery pack strategically placed low in the floor of the vehicle to optimise weight distribution and stability. This battery pack powers an electric motor that delivers a maximum output of 100kW and 260Nm providing instant torque and a smooth and quiet ride.

Charging the e-2008 SUV is convenient and fast, supporting both AC and DC charging. With a DC fast charger, the battery can be charged from 0% to 80% capacity in as little as approximately 30 minutes1. The Australian specification PEUGEOT e-2008 comes as standard with a three-phase 11kW charger.

Indicative charging times for the e-2008 via the 50kWh battery capacity include:
  • Approximately thirty minutes rapid charge from 0-80% capacity via a DC Current (100kW)1
  • Approximately five hours from 0-100% capacity via a three Phase 16A Wallbox (11kW)1
  • Approximately seven hours and thirty minutes from 0-100% capacity via a single Phase 32A Wallbox (7.4kW)1


The e-2008 SUV offers multiple driving modes to suit different preferences and driving conditions. In Normal mode, the vehicle delivers a balanced and efficient performance. In Eco mode, the power output is optimised for maximum range, perfect for longer journeys or when conserving energy is a priority. For those seeking a more dynamic driving experience, the Sport mode provides enhanced responsiveness and acceleration.

Furthermore, two modes of energy recovery when braking are available and accessible directly from the gear selector:
  • Drive ("D"), recovery is standard, for driving similar to an internal combustion vehicle; and
  • Brake ("B"), recovery allows deceleration directly from the accelerator pedal.


The batteries are optimally installed low in the floor, ensuring that choosing an electric version won't affect the performance or stowage capabilities of the new e-2008.

For peace of mind, all e-2008 models are supported by an eight-year, 160,000km battery warranty3.

Officially on sale now, the PEUGEOT e-2008 is available to purchase at your local authorised PEUGEOT dealership and online.
