Peugeot electrifies 5008 large SUV

Electric and hybrid variants of Peugeot's seven-seat 5008 SUV

26 Mar 2024

PEUGEOT has electrified its 5008 large SUV range with EV, PHEV and MHEV options announced as it pursues the ambitious goal of being a 100 per cent electric car maker by 2025.


While the underpinnings of the E-5008 are shared with the smaller E-3008 due to arrive in Australia in the second half of 2024, it has been extended at 4790mm long and 1690mm tall.


Two E-5008 model grades will be offered - the Allure and higher-spec GT - with a choice of three power levels and front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.


The options include a single-motor producing 157kW/345Nm powered by a 73kWh battery, a single-motor producing 170/345Nm with long-range 98kWh battery and a dual-motor option producing a combined  237kW/515Nm.


Peugeot claims an estimated range of up to 660km from the front-wheel drive long-range option, but has not offered estimated ranges for other configurations.


The 400V system supports DC fast charging at up to 160kW, capable of being charged from 20 per cent to 80 per cent in around 30 minutes, or it can be charged at 11kW using an AC plug, and an optional 22kW on board charger is also available.


Peugeot will use its new Pixel LED technology in the “ultra-compact” headlights of the top-spec GT model, which will constantly adapt to traffic conditions allowing optimal lighting without blinding oncoming traffic.


The GT also gets a 21-inch panoramic digital dash surrounded by luxurious aluminium trim, seemingly enveloping the driver in lashings of digital functionality, while eight ambient lighting colour options round out the high-tech cabin experience.


Alcantara and leather trim is also featured in the GT as well as a cabin filtration system that improves the air quality, while the lower-grade Allure gets dual 10-inch screens and TEP fabric interior.


Interior cargo space is generous, with up to 1815 litres and two metres of loading length with the second and third rows folded, 748 litres of with the third row folder, and 259 litres with all seven seats in place.


All models receive Peugeot’s i-Connect system with ChatGPT-powered AI functionality that allows occupants to interact with the system. Although it is clear as to exactly what the ChatGPT integration will allow while driving.


According to Peugeot the E-5008 features more than 40 driver assistance and safety systems, which it says is “one step further towards semi-autonomous driving”. The drive assist system is capable of adaptive cruise with stop-and-go function, semi-automatic lane changes and advanced speed recommendations.


Hybrid transition


Peugeot has also confirmed two hybrid models will follow the release of the E-5008, which it says aim to “support customers in their transition to full electrification”.


The E-5008 126 e-DCS6 MHEV will feature a 48V system, comprising a 100kW petrol engine coupled with a dual-clutch six-speed gearbox that incorporates an electric motor, capable of operating up to 50 per cent of the time under electric power.


Peugeot claims more torque at low RPM and a fuel use consumption of 5.8l/100km for the MHEV model, equating to a 15 per cent saving over the combustion engine equivalent.


The E-5008 195 e-DCS7 PHEV will combine a 92kW electric motor and a 111kW combustion engine, capable of covering more than 80km in all-electric mode and, with a full-size 60-litre tank, Peugeot says it offers “record-breaking range”.


While Peugeot is yet to announce pricing for the E-5008, it has confirmed the models are expected to reach Australian shores in 2025.
