The Peugeot e-2008 is the EV counterpart of the popular ICE 2008. This compact electric SUV has attractive interiors and is a comfortable ride – features that you can rely on from Peugeot, even when the car is smaller in size. It’s a great choice for EV newcomers who want an electric car that is sporty and modern but still looks and feels like a ‘car’.

Peugeot e-2008 range and charging info
If a long-range EV that will take you on epic road trips is what you’re looking for, then the 50kWh battery Peugeot e-2008 might not be the right car for you. Falling short of some of its close rivals, we’d expect around 153 real-world miles from a fully charged Peugeot e-2008. Riding around the city and dropping the kids off at school will be fine, but if you’re likely to regularly be driving long distances, you may need to stop to charge more often. However, one of the benefits of a smaller battery and shorter range is that charging time is also reduced – with a rapid charger you can be ready to go with a full battery in as little as 30 minutes.
If you’re considering an EV with a shorter range such as the Peugeot e-2008, it may be practical and cost-effective to consider installing a charging point at home.
Peugeot e-2008 interior
The Peugeot e-2008’s interior is futuristic, but in a way that welcomes instead of alienates. Choose your preference from eight different colours of ambient lighting, and control the temperature with piano-like keys. The 3D i-Cockpit display is easy-to-read while driving and won’t distract you from the road.
While it’s spacious for a Peugeot – enough that no one needs to worry about bumping their heads – it’s still a small SUV and the smaller steering wheel might take a bit of getting used to. There’s also only 405 litres of boot space – but for most people this will be perfectly adequate.
Peugeot e-2008 exterior
You’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the electric and combustion-powered versions – the EV retains its sporty looks and distinctive front grill. We have the Peugeot e-2008 available in three colours – Nero Black, Vertigo Blue and Platinum Grey – all of which have attractive glossy black highlights, and steel and silver accents.

Peugeot e-2008 FAQs
How to charge the Peugeot e-2008
Charging an electric car is as simple as plugging it in – but whether you decide to charge from home or on the go will depend on your living situation. In public charge points there are three settings – slow, fast, and rapid – with the price increasing as the waiting time drops.
elmoCharge makes this process slightly less daunting for those who are new to EV ownership.
How does the Peugeot e-2008 handle?
The Peugeot e-2008 is serene without being slow, and comfortable to boot, with three driving modes (Eco, Normal and Sport) to help you optimise your driving experience and conserve your range. The steering is light and quick, but the SUV build helps to add some necessary weight back into the driving experience.
Does the Peugeot e-2008 have good range?
The Peugeot e-2008’s range is good for city-dwellers and small families who don’t need to travel long distances for work or school. Ultimately, your lifestyle is what will determine whether this car’s range is ‘good’ for you, so think realistically about how often and how far you drive when looking to take out a subscription.
What are the differences between the e-2008 and e-208?
The Peugeot e-208 is the e-2008’s hatchback cousin. The top speeds, battery size and engine power are virtually the same – the main difference lies in the two cars’ outward appearances, and the fact that the e-2008 is the more spacious of the two. What the e-208 lacks in space it makes up for with a smaller price tag – but the e-2008 is easily the better option for families and larger households.
Is the Peugeot e-2008 a city car?
The Peugeot e-2008 is definitely a city car, but its insulation – the kind that makes road and wind noise minimal – also makes it a pleasant motorway cruiser. Its range lends itself to shorter distances, and drivers with range anxiety will definitely want to keep confined to relatively quick trips.
What boot space does the Peugeot e-2008 have?
The Peugeot e-2008 has 405 litres of boot space, which increases by well over 1,000 litres with the back seats down. This is more than enough space for the average family, and still keeps the car small enough to feel like a compact SUV.
