Peugeot is part of the Netherlands based Stellantis N.V., which was formed by the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (Italian/ American) and Groupe PSA (French). You may not be familiar with these names, but the automotive brands in the portfolio would be well known to most consumers. These include: Maserati, Opel, Vauxhall, Jeep, FIAT, Alfa Romeo etc.

Peugeot was founded in 1810 in Eastern France (Sochaux), and has a rich heritage in motor racing and the broader automotive sector. Peugeot has won many awards for its passenger cars, to include, six European Car of the Year awards.

As part of the broader Groupe PSA, Peugeot is very committed to the electric vehicle (EV) sector. Peugeot has committed to offering a fully electric (BEV) or a plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) for every model in its portfolio by 2023. The company’s portfolio of electric vehicles (EVs) include:

The All-Electric Peugeot e-2008 SUV

Like the Peugeot pure electric e-208, which hails from the Peugeot 208 supermini  portfolio, the pure electric Peugeot e-2008 SUV hails from the successful Peugeot 2008 model lineup. The Peugeot 2008 accounts for nearly 20% of the European sales. By making this successful crossover available in an electric model, the automotive company is safeguarding the future of this popular crossover! 

For families and company-car drivers keen to migrate to electric driving via a more affordable and compact electric SUV, the Peugeot e-2008 is certainly worth considering. The pure electric Peugeot has a 50 kWh onboard EV battery. It is true, in that, the more recent introduction of electric cars have a larger EV battery, but a 50 kWh battery still offers a practical e-range.

The manufacturer claims a zero-emission electric range up to 212 miles (WLTP). Even adjusting for real-world driving conditions, the e-SUV should be able to deliver an electric range over 180 miles. A useful and practical EV range for most day-to-day needs and for longer distance motorway driving. For those new to electric driving, a number of factors impact the quoted range. These include: driving profile, weather conditions, road surface, wheel size, onboard services used, passenger load and more.

The e-2008 electric SUV also incorporates regenerative braking to increase the vehicle efficiency and electric range. The EV offers two regenerative braking modes: moderate and emphasised. We recommend using the ’emphasised’ mode as often as possible to increase the efficiency of the electric vehicle (EV).

The Peugeot EV offers DC charging up to 100 kW, which is more than sufficient given the size of the onboard EV battery. At 100 kW DC, the EV can be charged up to 80% in 30 minutes. Just enough time for a coffee and short motorway break.

The e-2008 incorporates a 7.4 kW AC (1-phase) onboard charger. This again is appropriate, given that most homes in the UK are powered by single-phase power supply. The EV battery can be fully charged in 7 hours and 30 minutes. There is an option to upgrade to a 11 kW (3-phase) onboard charger, but given the above, we do not recommend it. However, if you have a three-phase power supply at home or at work, then an option worth consideration.

We at e-zoomed recommend charging overnight when the electricity tariff prices are cheaper and we also encourage the use of a dedicated home EV charging station like zappi, which is compatible with solar energy. We discourage the use of a domestic 3-PIN plug for charging an electric car. The EV will take up to 24 hours to fully charge via a standard domestic socket!

In terms of performance, the front-wheel drive Peugeot e-2008 delivers 0-62 mph in 9.9 seconds, with a 93 mph top speed (maximum power: 136 hp/ torque: 260 Nm). The electric car also benefits from instant torque. The pure electric e-2008 comes with 3 driving modes: Sport, Normal and Eco. The Eco gives priority to electric range, while the Sport gives priority to performance. The Normal mode is for everyday use.

In terms of technology and safety features, the e-2008 includes the following (depending on the variant): active safety brake, acoustic vehicle alerting system, blind spot monitoring, Peugeot i-cockpit, 3D head-up digital instrument panel, 8 colour ambient lighting, 7″ high definition touchscreen, climate control and more. In terms of practicality, the EV offers 434 L boot space.

Company-car drivers can also take advantage of the lower Benefit-in-Kind tax rate for pure electric cars. You can lease electric cars via e-zoomed at fantastic prices. Bottom-line, electric driving is good for the environment and the wallet.
