Peugeot e-2008 2023: electric small SUV to arrive in Australia in Q3 to rival Mercedes-Benz EQA


The Peugeot e-2008 will be the second fully-electric product to arrive in Australia after the e-Partner van

Peugeot Australia has announced it will bring its e-2008 small SUV to Australia in the third quarter of this year. It will follow the e-Partner commercial van as the marque’s debut electric passenger model in local showrooms.

Available in a single, high-spec variant, the e-2008 will utilise a 45kWh usable battery pack and will be powered by a single, front-mounted electric motor with outputs of 100KW/260Nm

Australian pricing and more detailed specifications are set to become available closer to the car’s local launch.

What we know about the e-2008

The e-2008 has an estimated electric range of 330km (WLTP) and is capable of charging at a maximum DC charge rate of 101kW. Charging at this speed, the new e-2008 can achieve a full charge in approximately 26 minutes.

The Peugeot e-2008 will be based on the Stellantis CMP platform that also underpins cars such as the Citroen e-C4, Opel Mokka-e and the Peugeot e-208. 

Peugeot’s new electric small SUV measures in at 4300mm long, 1770mm wide and 1530mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2605mm, making it most similar in size to cars such as the Hyundai Kona electric and the Kia Seltos

It is yet unconfirmed as to whether the e-208 will follow the e-2008 into the Australian market.
