Peugeot confirms E-3008 electric ‘fastback’ SUV is headed Down Under

Peugeot has revealed its new E-3008 electric ‘fastback’ SUV with up to 700km range, all-wheel-drive and 240kW – and confirmed it’s coming to Australia.

Unveiled globally this week, the E-3008 is a new C-segment SUV built on the Stellantis STLA electric platform and part of Peugeot’s global plan to sell only EVs by “as soon as” 2025.

The E-3008’s short overhangs, long wheelbase and tapering ‘fastback’ form permit a range-friendly 0.28Cd aerodynamic drag coefficient, while 19- or 20-inch wheels complete the look depending on the grade chosen.

In addition to hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, Peugeot will offer three electric powertrain options for the E-3008 split over single- and dual-motor variants. 

Two single-motor, front-drive E-3008s will be available in either 157kW standard range or 170kW long-range guises, with a 240kW dual-motor range-topper offering all-wheel-drive. Peugeot is yet to release 0-100km/h figures.

WLTP claimed range for the E-3008 varies from 525km in the entry-level 73kWh variant, to 525km in the all-wheel-drive model with the same battery; and up to 700km in 170kW, long-range guise, thanks to a large 98kWh nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) battery.

For recharging, the E-3008 can accept a maximum of 11kW AC as standard, with 22kW to be optional overseas. Maximum DC fast-charging capability is 160kW, allowing the battery to be juiced from 20 to 80 percent in 30 minutes or less – including the 98kWh pack.

No details have yet been released on the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models.

Inside, the dashboard of the higher-spec GT is dominated by an enormous 21-inch panoramic touchscreen displaying both instruments and infotainment; while an additional, smaller touchscreen handles HVAC controls. 

Sustainable materials are used throughout, with up to 500kg of “green materials” used in the E-3008, said Peugeot. Boot space is a respectable 520 litres, or 71 litres less than its 3008 predecessor.

Local pricing and specification will be announced closer to on-sale, Peugeot Australia said. Arriving late next year, the E-3008 will join the electric E-Partner van, E-2008 electric SUV and E-208 hatch as Peugeot continues to convert its local line-up to exclusively battery-electric vehicles (BEVs).

The E-3008 will take on electric rivals such as the BMW iX1, Genesis GV60, Mercedes-Benz EQA and Volvo XC40 Recharge.
