UK customers are now able to place an order for the 2020 2008 and e-2008 SUVs ahead of their market launch early next year.
Peugeot is now accepting reservations for the GT Line trim of both the 2008 and its fully electric version, the e-2008, with their prices starting from £26,100 and £32,000 respectively (the latter includes the UK’s £3,500 Plug-In Car Grant).
This trim level comes packed with features, including full LED headlights with smartbeam assist, LED rear lights, as well as an interior with Adamite green colour stitching, mood lighting, dynamic seats and aluminium pedals. The new 2008 will become available in Active, Allure and GT trim later on.
The new battery-electric e-2008 is powered by a 136 HP electric motor and a 50 kWh battery pack. The French electric subcompact SUV is expected to offer a driving range of 193 miles (310 km) on the WLTP cycle. It’s also compatible with 100kW fast-charging, which will recharge the battery to 80 percent in just 30 minutes, while topping it up on a conventional 7.4kW charger will take 7.5 hours.
ICE-powered models are offered with both petrol and diesel engines. These include the 1.2-liter PureTech three-cylinder petrol with three different outputs (99 HP, 128 HP and 153 HP), as well as a 1.5-liter BlueHDI diesel with 99 HP. All models come with front-wheel drive.
“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,” said David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK.
The new 2008 is Peugeot’s latest model to feature the brand’s 3D i-Cockpit, including a small steering wheel and a new head-up display. The latter projects information in hologram form close to the driver’s line of sight. The dashboard hosts a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features 3D Navigation with live traffic information, Mirror Screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
