Peugeot e-2008

(2020 – present)

    Summary


    Launched in 2019 and arriving in the UK in early 2020, the Peugeot e-2008 is one of the new breed of small electric crossovers. It forms part of the overall Peugeot 2008 range, along with petrol and diesel versions.

    The e-2008 takes on an ever-growing line-up of rivals, from electric pioneers such as the Nissan Leaf to the latest e-SUVs typified by the Hyundai Kona Electric and the Kia e-Niro.

    Reviewers have praised the Peugeot e-2008 for its sharp exterior styling and upmarket interior, although its distinctive ‘i-cockpit’ dashboard isn’t universally admired. It also scores on space, offering the same as its traditionally-powered siblings with impact on boot space from the batteries.

    However the electric drivetrain, combining a 134hp motor with a 50kWh battery, attracts more criticism. There are few complaints about the car’s smooth, hushed progress but it’s not considered particularly sprightly. And its range, around 160 miles in ‘real-world’ use, will be unlikely to divert potential Hyundai and Kia buyers, with both the Kona Electric and e-Niro going a lot further between charges.

    The Peugeot does recover marks for allowing 100kW rapid recharging, which means you can charge the battery from flat to 80% capacity in around half an hour, and for its charge socket. This is at the back, where the fuel filler normally is, so you don’t have to reverse out of a parking space after using a public charger.    

    The Peugeot e-2008 currently holds an Expert Rating of 72%, based on 18 reviews. This is slightly better than the fossil-fuel Peugeot 2008, which currently has an Expert Rating of 70% as of July 2022.

    Safety rating


    No safety rating

    The Peugeot e-2008 has not yet been awarded a safety rating by Euro NCAP. The conventional Peugeot 2008 range was tested in 2019, scoring four stars in standard form and five stars with the optional safety pack. The safety pack includes a more extensive autonomous emergency braking system including adaptive cruise control with stop and go function.

    The safety rating for the regular 2008 does not automatically apply to the electric e-2008 as replacing the engine/gearbox/fuel tank with an electric motor and battery creates substantial differences in the overall vehicle, so it may behave significantly differently in an emergency.

    If and when Euro NCAP tests the Peueot e-2008, we will update this page accordingly.

    Eco rating


    No eco rating

    The Peugeot e-2008 has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP.

    The Green NCAP programme measures exhaust pollution (which is zero for an electric car) and energy efficiency. Electric cars are much more energy-efficient than combustion cars, so the Peugeot e-2008 is likely to score very highly in Green NCAP testing if and when it ever takes place. Check back again soon.
