Peugeot will be unveiling its new all-electric (EV) SUV – the Peugeot e-3008 in Sochaux, France on Tuesday, September 12. However, prior to the event, the French carmaker has shown images of its new EV SUV to the world without its camouflage.
On the outside, the all-new Peugeot e-3008 carries a face that looks even more dynamic than the current generation 3008. A new grille design can be spotted here, along with the brand’s new logo. The EV SUV now sports slimmer LED headlamps too, featuring the brand’s signature triple claw LED graphics. The LED daytime running lights (DRLs) then further “extend” the headlamps downwards to complement the grille.
Like many SUVs nowadays, the e-3008 has gone with a fastback design at the back, which looks just as dynamic and angular as its front fascia, giving it a “big car” look. The triple claw LED design continues here with the LED rear lights, and the Peugeot logo is now gone, replaced by a “PEUGEOT” inscription instead, along with the “E 3008” badge just right below.
Inside, the all-new Peugeot e-3008 sports the company’s new panoramic i-Cockpit interior design which was unveiled a couple of months ago. But before we jump into the details, doesn’t this design remind you of a fighter jet cockpit?
In terms of kit, you get a floating 21-inch high-definition curved panoramic screen here, which consists of both the instrument and infotainment displays. Instead of buttons, Peugeot is giving you its i-Toggles, which is a touch-sensitive panel that replaces the traditional air-conditioning control panel and can feature up to 10 configurable shortcut keys. The newly designed compact steering wheel has also gone buttonless, with touch-sensitive buttons in place instead.
However, Peugeot has ensured that the new buttons feature ‘tactile clicking’, and will automatically detect the driver’s fingers. To prevent unintentional miss-presses, the buttons will only be activated when pressed.
No technical or performance-related details of the all-new Peugeot e-3008 have been announced just yet. For that, we will have to see what Peugeot has to offer when it unveils the new EV SUV in Sochaux, France tomorrow (September 12). The unveiling event will be held at 12:30 PM CET (6:30 PM MYT).
