Peugeot E-3008 GT (2024) review

Peugeot E-3008 GT (2024) review

Come and see, come and see: Stellantis, the parent company of about half of all car brands, has launched a new platform. Well, a lot of buyers will be concerned about what exactly is “underneath” their car. But we as car testers do a good job. After nearly 73 Opels, Peugeots and Citroen cars with the same technology, it’s a welcome change of pace. The car that has the honor of launching the new STLA Medium platform is the Peugeot E-3008.

There’s no old wine in new bottles here: everything is fresh from the farm, from top to bottom, and from the inside out. In addition to fuel-engined versions, which we’ll discuss later, this foundation offers the flexibility needed for electric applications: you can mix and match two battery sizes and two powertrains (one or two motors, front- or all-wheel drive). The wheelbase can vary and the plan is to accommodate approximately 2 million C and D segment cars on this platform annually – again from many brands and types.

How much power does the new platform offer?

Now let’s try the E-3008. First of all, it comes in the version we have here: front-wheel drive with 210 hp and a 73 kWh battery. A quick dual-motor version with all-wheel drive and 320 hp will be released later, and a 230 hp front-wheel drive version with a large 98 kWh battery (good for 700 km). There are two versions of the new Peugeot E-3008, Allure and GT. To get an impression of the difference in equipment: the first has two 10-inch screens, the second a 21-inch “floating” curved screen.

At first glance it looks like a crossover with some crazy angles, creases and wheels. But look closely and you’ll discover some fascinating details. For example, the rear is cut off quite abruptly, so it’s almost as high as a pickup, which you only realize when you’re standing next to it. And look at the bottom of the side windows: they disappear behind the door body panels, so there are no rubber strips or chrome in sight.

The Peugeot E-3008 features an interior from the future

Then we step inside: Oh, this interior! You might think we’d end up with a typical car that would never see a single meter of asphalt. The covered dashboard and door panel hug you as you marvel at that screen and the freely available ambient lighting. A screen with adjustable toggles (i-Toggles) is easily accessible, as is a row of physical buttons. Oddly enough, there’s no charging pad for your phone; Many USB connections.

The steering wheel is small and low, as has been common in Peugeots for some time, and the seating position behind it is good. You don’t have a lot of space in the back, but it’s enough for the average adult. When you say “Okay, Peugeot,” you can then ask the E-3008 any question you want – and ChatGPT will give you an answer. Although this is an answer from 2022 or earlier, as it is not related to the newer version of the AI ​​machine. Oh, the details.

The electric SUV is economical and runs smoothly

The spearhead of the new Stellantis technology is economy: the specific value for this 210 hp version is 16.7 kWh/100 km, with a peak of 13.4 kWh in city use only. The E-3008 should be able to achieve an average WLTP range of 527 km; And that’s just the “small” battery. During our test drive in French spring weather, we effortlessly averaged 14.6kWh/100km below the factory target, while not falling behind all the time.

Because driving the Peugeot E-3008 GT is fun. It’s short, smooth and direct geared, has a strong body (perhaps a little too much, for a comfortable Frenchman) and just the right amount of power for an entry-level version. The power pedal response could have been a bit sharper, especially in Sport mode, but few heads of household will really care about that. Furthermore, it’s surprising how little noise, for example, comes from the suspension on poor road surfaces, and that you have to pull the right fin (+) to get less regeneration. You keep your quirk anyway.

The new Peugeot E-3008 is quite expensive

With a starting price of €48,190 (€49,735 in Belgium), a bit more for a well-equipped GT, the Peugeot E-3008 is certainly not a bargain. But nowadays you don’t have to worry about that anymore. For that money, you get an eight-year warranty, the privilege of being the first to drive the new Stellantis masterpiece, and a Peugeot that’s cooler and wilder than usual. Lion’s Roar, gr.
