Peugeot 2008 SUV Launched in France
Having been officially introduced in June 2019, the all-new Peugeot 2008 SUV is now available at all Peugeot dealerships in its home country.
Based on the Common Modular Platform (CMP), the new generation model features a more muscular design that follows the footsteps of the current 208, as shown by the LED claw effect on the headlamps and tail lights.
Inside, the cabin carries the i-Cockpit 3D architecture, characterised by a compact steering wheel, a large high-definition touch screen and a 3D heads-up display.
The 2008 will be offered with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder PureTech petrol engine in PureTech 100/130/155 S&S forms, as well as a 1.6-litre four-cylinder BlueHDi turbodiesel engine in 100/130 S&S versions.
There is also a fully-electric version called the e-2008. It is powered by an electric motor that develops 136 hp dan 260 Nm of torque, and is able to travel up to 310 km on a single charge thanks to a 50-kWh battery.
Since 5th January 2020, the new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV in its thermal and electric versions has been present in all the showrooms of PEUGEOT dealerships in France. On this occasion, an ambitious launch program has been devised by the brand with a lion’s share of attention: television, billboards, magazines and newspapers, cinema, internet.
After nearly 1,200,000 vehicles sold in its previous version, this new generation of PEUGEOT 2008 asserts itself with a particularly powerful and distinctive style. Ultra-technological, it adopts the whole new generation of the immersive PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® 3D, equipment and driving aids at the level of the best know-how of PEUGEOT.
From its launch, the new SUV PEUGEOT 2008 has a multi-energy offer: electric, petrol and diesel offering customers freedom of choice while retaining the extraordinarily stimulating and efficient sensations.
The new SUV PEUGEOT 2008 is the first PEUGEOT electric SUV that gives access to a new universe of sensations. 100% electric, the driver will benefit from a high level of brilliance, in total silence and in absence of vibrations. This pleasure is accompanied by the freedom to drive around town even in Green Zones with restricted traffic. The new SUV PEUGEOT e-2008 does not have a specific silhouette but will be identifiable by a few details: a sparkling dichroic Lion, whose reflections alternate between green and blue depending on the angle of view, a specific “e” monogram on the front wings and tailgate, an elegant body-coloured grille with horizontal lamp pods, exclusive Alcantara© “Greval Grey” seat upholstery on the new SUV PEUGEOT e-2008 GT and finally, the on-board experience is completed by a display specific to the electric version in the 3D handset as well as in the touch screen.
