All-new Peugeot 3008 and 5008 to debut in 2023 with 700 km range EV variant

Peugeot has announced that the next-generation all-new Peugeot 3008 and 5008 will be making their official debut in the second half of 2023. In line with its electrification push, Peugeot will also be offering fully-electric variants of both models, dubbed E-3008 and E-5008, as part of the models’ variant line-up.

The E-3008 will be coming first, followed by the E-5008 “shortly after”. Details are scarce at the moment, but Peugeot says that it’ll be offered in three different electric powertrain options, including dual motor options, with an impressive electric range of up to 700 km.

The E-3008 will also be the first car to be built on the “state-of-the-art” STLA Medium platform, which features a wide range of connectivity and artificial intelligence technologies, the latter in support of a “future of autonomous driving”.

A steer-by-wire system will be equipped as standard on the new platform, which will enable “new ways to control the vehicle” in the future, including a Hypersquare feature and the next-generation of Peugeot’s i-Cockpit dashboard design, both to be launched from 2026 onwards.

It’ll also feature a completely new design language, with “more flexibility and freedom to reimagine the overall proportions” thanks to the BEV-focused platform.

Further details on the Peugeot E-5008 were not disclosed, but it should closely mirror that of the E-3008.

As part of Peugeot’s “E-Lion Project” electrification roadmap, the French carmaker is committed to a 100% fully battery-electric vehicle (BEV) line-up by 2025, in line with its goal to become completely carbon-neutral by 2038. In achieving that, the marque will be electrifying every model in its line-up this year, while by 2030, all Peugeots sold in Europe will also be fully electric.

For its electrification efforts this year, Peugeot will be introducing a new line-up of 48V mild-hybrid (MHEV) powertrains, to be rolled out onto the 208, 2008, 308, 3008, 5008, and 408 models. To be paired to the 100 hp and 136 hp PureTech engines, the MHEV system utilises a 21 kW electric motor integrated in the six-speed dual-clutch gearbox to provide additional low-end torque while driving, while also reducing fuel consumption by up to 15%.

Uniquely, Peugeot’s MHEV system can also operate in a fully-electric mode for short distances, at up to 50% of the time in urban settings.

Within the next two years, Peugeot will also be unveiling a total of five new EVs – the aforementioned E-3008 and E-5008, alongside the new E-308, E-308 SW, and E-408. For the E-308, it’ll be powered by a brand-new electric powertrain making 115 kW (156 hp), with an electric range of over 400 km.

Back here in Malaysia, the Peugeot 3008 and 5008 are currently available in a single Allure variant, powered by a turbocharged inline-four engine with 165 hp and 240 Nm. The Peugeot 3008 and 5008 in Malaysia are priced at RM 167,288 and RM 182,388 respectively.
