Peugeot E-3008 electric SUV to rival the ID.4 from late 2023 [Update]

  • Compact EV for family SUV buyers likely to be at dealerships in early 2024
  • Confirmed with a dual-motor version and a 700 km (435 miles) range
  • Will compete with the likes of VW ID.4, Skoda Enyaq iV, and Nissan Ariya
  • Could cost around EUR 45,000 onwards in Germany

Update: ‘Peugeot E-3008 design & features’ section updated.

The current-gen 3008 has been in production for a little over 6 years, and well over a million copies have been sold. Stellantis says that European sales account for 65% of the production volume, which is another reason for a pure-electric variant to come in during the next generation. Stellantis considers the 3008 as the embodiment of the “Power of Choice,” as it offers gasoline, diesel, and gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid versions. The missing link then is the BEV, which will emerge this year.

Here’s everything we know about the upcoming Peugeot E-3008:

Design & Interior

On February 26, 2023, L’argus reported that the third-gen Peugeot 3008 will feature an SUV coupe, body, not a conventional SUV body like the first- and second-gen models. The fast-sloping roofline and low ride height should particularly benefit its electric variant, the E-3008, as it’d need all the possible efficiency gains to reduce energy consumption and travel more miles.

Citing sources, L’Automobile reported on June 19, 2021, that Peugeot wouldn’t use its current style light signature on the next-gen 3008. The vertical LED DRLs of the all-new second-gen 2008, which Peugeot says “lend the vehicle a saber-toothed look,” inspired the hook-shaped DRLs of the facelifted second-gen 3008.

Peugeot E-3008 Teaser
Our favorite part of the 3008’s design is its sharp lines and curves which are executed without being too over the top. We’re expecting the same approach with the E-3008’s design (teased)

On January 26, 2023, a teaser of the future Peugeot EV line-up (pictured above) confirmed a new three-claw design for the LED DRLs of the Peugeot E-3008.

Inside, all we know so far, courtesy of a L’Argus report dated January 17, 2023, is that the next-gen 3008, and thus the first-ever E-3008, will feature an all-new i-Cockpit (a signature combination of a compact steering wheel, an elevated instrument cluster, and a large touchscreen infotainment system).

In our experience, the high quality materials in the 3008’s cabin should be further built upon in the EV, while drawbacks like the small rear windshield and the lack of physical knobs for the air conditioner, and the consistency in ergonomics across the cabin are the areas to be addressed when developing the E-3008. Touching and feeling different parts of the cabin, one is surprised with the material quality in the 3008, and we hope for a similar surprise in the E-3008 with reduced panel gaps all round.


The Peugeot E-3008 will debut Stellantis’ STLA Medium platform. Reports say that STLA Medium is nothing but a reframed eVMP platform.

The STLA Medium underpinning the Peugeot E-3008 will allow it to be a strong competitor to compact SUVs like the VW ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq iV. It could come with battery pack capacities ranging from 87 to 104 kWh (embedded). Stellantis has confirmed the largest battery pack will have the potential to deliver a range (presumably WLTP) of up to 700 km (435 miles) and also that the Peugeot E-3008’s range (presumably WLTP) will also be 700 km (435 miles).

In its announcement on January 26, 2023, Peugeot said that the E-3008 will get three electric powertrains, including a dual motor variant. There’s no word on the power output, but, technically, Stellantis could offer powertrains with anywhere between 125 and 330 kW (168 and 442 bhp).

Automotive Cells Company (ACC), a JV company Groupe PSA and TotalEnergies formed in September 2020, will likely manufacture the battery packs of the Peugeot E-3008. Mercedes-Benz joined Stellantis and TotalEnergies’ partnership and became an equal shareholder (with 1/3 equity stake) of ACC in September 2021.

ACC plans to manufacture battery packs at two “gigafactories,” one located in Douvrin (France) and the other located in Kaiserslautern (Germany). ACC’s website says that the French facility will have a capacity of 8 GWh in 2023 and 24-32 GWh at a later stage. The German factory will generate 24-32 GWh. Naturally, the Douvrin-made battery packs would be used for the Peugeot E-3008.

Tremery, France-based Nidec-PSA emotors (NPe), a joint venture company Groupe PSA established with Nidec in 2018, would manufacture the electric motors of the Peugeot E-3008. Stellantis has confirmed that it will offer the electric compact SUV with three powertrain options, including dual motor. Thus, it’s safe to assume that at least one of the E-3008 configurations will have an all-wheel drive drivetrain layout.

During our drive, we remember experiencing the Peugeot 3008’s soft suspension, which is typically what we would expect from the brand, and should be descriptive of the E-3008’s setup. The all-electric version, particularly the dual-motor version, will offer even more thrills to fans who enjoyed doing a 0-60 run or short burst of acceleration assisted by the electric motor on the PHEV, without hearing an exhaust note!

Release date

E-3008 Revealed in the second half of 2023, Range will be up to 700 km, with 3 electric powertrains, including dual motor.

Peugeot’s electrification announcement on January 26, 2023

The E-3008 will celebrate its world premiere in the second half of 2023. We expect the new-generation C-SUV’s deliveries to start in early 2024.

Peugeot U.S. launch plans aborted

On February 26, 2019, Groupe PSA (now a part of Stellantis) announced that it would relaunch the Peugeot brand in the United States under the second phase of its strategic plan Push to Pass (2019-2021). Larry Dominique, the-then Chairman, and CEO, PSA North America, said in August 2020 that the company plans to introduce Peugeot in North America by 2023, as per

In March 2021, a report from Automotive News Europe reported that Stellantis has canceled the return of Peugeot to the U.S. A company spokesman told ANE that the company will focus on existing brands in the country.

TopElectricSUV says

The E-3008 will be an electric compact SUV with a bold exterior, a clean and spacious interior including a highly driver-focused cockpit, with optional AWD, expected at a price that doesn’t break the bank! Only time will tell if it can beat the well-established VW ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq iV in the old continent.
