PEUGEOT's First 100% Battery Electric SUV Accepts Pre-Orders

April 2023: Pre-orders opened for PEUGEOT Australia's first passenger electric vehicle, the highly anticipated e-2008 Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), in April 2023.

Bringing more choice to the fast-growing small SUV segment, the e-2008 is set to enhance the allure of the 2008 nameplate by offering customers a fully electric powertrain alongside the well-regarded internal combustion local range.

Equipped with a 50 kWh battery, a 100 kW electric motor and 260 Nm of torque, the e-2008 provides a WLTP test range of 328km1. 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)2
  • Approximately five hours from 0-100% capacity via a three Phase 16A Wallbox (11kW)2
  • Approximately seven hours and thirty minutes from 0-100% capacity via a single Phase 32A Wallbox (7.4kW)2


Kate Gillis, Managing Director PEUGEOT Australia, commented at the time saying: "The e-2008 is going to be an important and eagerly anticipated addition to the local range as we continue on our electrification journey.

"The impending arrival will signify our first fully electric passenger vehicle on sale in Australia and provides us with the opportunity to further expand on the success of the premium 2008 SUV range.

"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."

The PEUGEOT 2008 is a premium small SUV that is ideally suited to urban adventures and designed with the modern landscape in mind. The e-2008 not only offers the choice of electric motor benefits but also the intense appeal of the PEUGEOT design philosophy.

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 for the e-2008 include horizontal body colour coded front grille slats and exclusive e-badging on the front quarter and rear of the vehicle.

The e-2008 will come with a five-year/ unlimited kilometre warranty3 and five-year roadside assistance4.
