Future Peugeot 3008 electric: the first figures that already say long

First Peugeot model built on the Stla Medium platform of the Stellantis group, the electric 3008 would offer, according to its manufacturer, 700 km of autonomy. A nice goal that should be put into perspective for several reasons. First of all on the traditional difference between the manufacturer’s figures, which result from approval on the WLTP European cycle, and the real figures. From what we see during our independent checks, we must withdraw approximately 30 %. In real life, Rather, it will be necessary to count on autonomy around 500 km with a single load in a mixed urban/peri -urban use. On the highway, it will undoubtedly be difficult to exceed 400 km. For comparison, these are roughly the figures we have made with a Mercedes EQE whose penetration into the air is particularly studied and which uses an 89 kWh battery.

Ecological bonus: Will the Electric Peugeot 3008 be eligible ?

The Peugeot brand has made the risky bet to market its compact 3008 SUV very soon in electric version. To see if this renewed bestseller holds all the assets to be eligible for the ecological bonus, which will come into force on January 1, 2024.

Peugeot had no choice but to follow the movement. In view of the objective of reducing CO2 emissions to be achieved in its sales, as with all manufacturers, the brand has launched the challenge of converting its 3008 bestseller in all electric. Code name : Next Level E-3008. This third generation of the compact SUV was entitled to an international presentation on Tuesday September 12, to mark the main changes made, that are design, the advanced system of the I-Cockpit and of course the motorization. If Peugeot dared to get ambitious with a fairly radical renewal, can she expect a commercial success at the rendezvous ? Since remember, the model has been a real box since its launch in 2016, with Over 1.32 million sales in total.

The lion brand thus induces its 3008 in the electric era from February 2024 in France, a car market that dictates sales of battery vehicles with the famous ecological bonus of 5.000 or 7.000 euros according to the buyer’s income. Especially since the government has reworked the eligibility criteria for entry into force from January 1, 2024. They will be partially conditioned by the maximum price threshold at 47.000 euros (if it is maintained), of course, but also by an environmental score project (to assess the CO2 of production, logistics, battery, etc.) to promote electric cars produced in Europe. This screw tour should be detailed soon. We could then ask ourselves the question if the new electric 3008 enters the nails ?

The SUV E-3008 produced in France

The SUV E-3008 is of course in the race and in all its chances. On the one hand, Peugeot will play the card of made in France, Since the vehicle will be assembled in the heart of the brand’s industrial bastion, namely the Sochaux factory, in the Doubs department, in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. The production line is already running with pre-series models, a break-in time upstream necessary to be ready during the marketing scheduled for February 2024. The site has been strongly modernized in recent years, in support of heavy investments to make this place an industrial reference for the Stellantis group. Also, the electric motors will come out of the Metz-Tuzmemery factories, in Moselle, and the cells of its battery will be manufactured by ACC in Douvrin (Hauts-de-France). But there is a catch. Before the French batteries were available, Peugeot uses for the launch a battery provided by the Chinese manufacturer byd with the lowest autonomy. Which could lower the environmental score ..

An electric 3008 below 47.Euros ?

In terms of price, it is also complicated, if not anymore. Obviously, despite our reminders during the global presentation of the electric 3008, no information was revealed on the prices by the Peugeot teams. They will be revealed very soon, by the end of the year. But the boss Linda Jackson claims to work on the subject “to be online” as much as possible with the ecological bonus. While the current 3008 in entry -level hybrid version is available from 38.870 euros, the new in electric configuration, larger, larger, higher, more connected and with a battery pack allowing a range of 525 km, could exceed 47.Euros. Or even graze the 50.Euros, According to the estimates of the specialized press. Offer a first entry -level version below 47.000 euros would be of the miracle order, when you know that it was limited for the small E-308. Peugeot had to correct the shot by reviewing its prices several times so that the model is eligible for the ecological bonus … It is now displayed from 42.590 euros.

Future Peugeot 3008 electric: the first figures that already say long !

Presented at the end of the year, the future Peugeot 3008 electric has already made great promises. But be careful not to take them all for cash.

Even if it is a little loss of speed because of its age, the Peugeot 3008 remains a very homogeneous car. In these 4.45 m long – an appreciable size for everyday life – and behind a seamous silhouette, the Frenchman offers a cabin both modern and rather welcoming. And confirms the right impressions on the road with a dynamism always above average, without really neglecting comfort. Vovertime an excellent synthesis to which only one ingredient is lacking: a 100% electric variant. Never mind, the next 3008, unveiled at the end of 2023, will be entitled to its “zero broadcast” version ! There was no doubt, but the lion confirmed it during a product plan that he presented this week concerning all the upcoming electric models. A silhouette, but also figures, even if it is advisable to sort through the promises.

A great promise of autonomy but beware

First Peugeot model built on the Stla Medium platform of the Stellantis group, the electric 3008 would offer, according to its manufacturer, 700 km of autonomy. A nice goal that should be put into perspective for several reasons. First of all on the traditional difference between the manufacturer’s figures, which result from approval on the WLTP European cycle, and the real figures. From what we see during our independent checks, we must withdraw approximately 30 %. In real life, Rather, it will be necessary to count on autonomy around 500 km with a single load in a mixed urban/peri -urban use. On the highway, it will undoubtedly be difficult to exceed 400 km. For comparison, these are roughly the figures we have made with a Mercedes EQE whose penetration into the air is particularly studied and which uses an 89 kWh battery.

A kid battery to go far

The Peugeot 3008 MK3 will be available in a 100% electric version logically named Peugeot E-3008

In the case of E-3008, needless to say that the accumulator will also be the strong type. If we stick to the 12.7 kWh/100 km on average that Peugeot aims for these new generation electrics, the battery of an E-3008 would reach 90 kWh capacity to hope to travel 700 km. Two information therefore arises from the last: the Peugeot E-3008 will be heavy and the Peugeot E-3008 will be expensive. Heavy, because a 90 kWh battery weighs around 600 kg and with such a battery, the Mercedes EQE reaches 2,390 kg on our balance in Montlhéry. If it is well placed in the chassis, it can at least help lower the center of gravity of the car and improve the behavior compared to certain thermal. On the other hand, Peugeot will have to redouble their work to offer a little dynamism to this 5-plates SUV which should logically exceed 2 tonnes.

In addition, the battery still counting for 40% of the price of an electric car, the price of an E-3008 will be high. Since the 180 hp rechargeable hybrid starts today at € 44,000, We would not be surprised to see an all -electric version starting at more than € 50,000. As it stands, it would not even be entitled to the CO2 bonus … Unless a smaller battery version is the entry level, but it will then be necessary to count on an autonomy still less than the previous figures mentioned here. Many unknowns therefore, for this future electric 3008 even if customers will also be able to count on gasoline and hybrid.
