Prices for the regular 2008 start from £20,150 – a jump over the outgoing model’s starting price, though you have to consider in the extra technology on this second-generation model.
The new e-2008 is also Peugeot’s first electrified crossover/SUV, with the model sharing the same underpinnings as the new e-208, with a 206-mile range claimed from its 50kWh battery. The e-208 is available from £28,150.
One turbocharhed 1.2-litre petrol engine is available with outputs of 99bhp, 128bhp or 153bhp, while an efficient 98bhp 1.5-litre diesel is offered, too.
Four trim levels are offered, with the entry-level Allure coming as standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, Peugeot’s i-Cockpit, electric and heated door mirrors along with automatic emergency braking.
Allure brings 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, leather-effect seats, a digital instrument cluster and LED fog lights. The stylish GT Line then brings a reversing camera, satellite navigation, full LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels and sportier styling. Meanwhile the flagship GT adds adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, an Alcantara cabin and a panoramic sunroof.
Prices rise to £31,575 for the top-spec GT with a petrol engine, and £34,725 for the e-2008.
Order books for both models are now open, with first deliveries of the regular 2008 expected in February, and the e-2008 two months later.
Managing Director of Peugeot UK, David Peel, said: “The inclusion of an electric variant in our all-new Peugeot 2008 SUV range marks a huge milestone in our electrification strategy.See Available 2008 deals
“We are all immensely proud of the new models we have coming up in the next few years. The SUV market is incredibly popular, but we have full confidence in our all-new 2008 range and extremely excited to see driver’s reactions to all powertrain variants, especially the e-2008, once they hit the roads of the UK.”
