Peugeot e-2008 EV SUV Previewed At Malaysia Autoshow 2023
The Peugeot e-2008 might be a game changer for the brand in Malaysia
So the Malaysia Autoshow 2023 has shown us a whole host of new exciting vehicles that are going to go on sale here in Malaysia soon enough and one of the more exciting electric vehicles (EVs) that we were shown was the Peugeot e-2008 EV small SUV. Let’s take a closer look at it.
The stylish small EV SUV, the Peugeot e-2008 is equipped with a 50kW battery and 100kW powertrain configuration paired to a 136 horsepower motor that provides an estimated range of up to 320km from a full charge and if it is priced just right, this little SUV could be a game changer for the brand here.
Moreover, the all-new Peugeot e-2008 has a distinctive styling design, including a body-coloured chequered front grille and a bespoke ‘e’ monogram on the front side of the panel and tailgate while the interior features the iconic Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit with hologram technology and a state-of-the-art head-up display.
The charging of the Peugeot e-2008 is made very easy as the vehicle can support 100kW rapid charging from any dedicated DC Charging station, achieving an 80 percent charge in just 30 minutes. These numbers may not seem so impressive anymore, but it is definitely better than most EVs on sale right now.
Aside from that, the Peugeot e-2008 is pretty standard Peugeot on the outside, sporting the brand’s signature fang shaped LED DRL below the headlight but the front grille has some extra inserts that add an extra layer of style to the little SUV that the brand’s internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles do not have.
On top of that, the same can be said for the interior of the Peugeot e-2008 as well as it still features the brand’s hexagonal shaped steering wheel as well as clean and simple centre console with a central infotainment screen that is tiled quite dramatically towards the driver.
Despite all this, the all-new Peugeot e-2008 is actually a whole different beast (pun intended) from the rest of the Peugeot lineup and also represents the next step in Peugeot vehicle evolution and it certainly has all the features and looks to make it a good first choice for anyone.
No pricing has been indicated yet, but the Peugeot e-2008 would definitely qualify for tax-free EV pricing, so it should have a very competitive price and will definitely appeal to younger EV buyers and will surely shake up the EV world. Who knows, some other EV makers may even reduce their prices to compete.
So what do you guys think of the Peugeot e-2008? Will this be the car to make you consider an EV?
