All-new Peugeot E-5008: family-focused 7-seater gets over 400 miles of EV range

New Peugeot E-5008 arrives wearing a sharper suit, plus choice of hybrid or fully-electric powertrains

  • New seven-seater family SUV
  • Choice between fully-electric or hybrid models
  • Arriving in the UK this autumn

Peugeot’s largest SUV has been thoroughly revamped for 2024 – say bonjour to the all-new Peugeot E-5008. Offering seating for up to seven – and a choice of hybrid or fully electric powertrains – the E-5008 is aimed directly at family buyers, bringing the French brand’s latest styling and interior technology to its three-row SUV.

What do I need to know about the Peugeot E-5008?

The new Peugeot E-5008 fills the same shoes as the outgoing 5008, offering seven seats in a stylish SUV body. It’s underpinned by a new platform developed by parent-brand Stellantis, designed primarily for electric vehicles but with support for hybrids, too. The same setup is used in the new E-3008 SUV, but here it’s been stretched to create additional space for a third row of seats.

The similarities between the E-3008 and E-5008 don’t end there. From the outside, the relationship between the two is clear, with an identical front-end design. There’s the same pair of thin LED headlights, complemented by Peugeot’s triple-claw daytime-running light design and a body-coloured grille. You get the same set of wheels, too, with aerodynamic designs available in either 19 or 20 inches.

Step around to the rear of the E-5008 and things are very different. The sloping roofline of the E-3008 is gone, replaced by a more traditional, boxy SUV body. At 4,790mm long, it’s grown around 150mm from the outgoing model, which should translate to more interior passenger space in the third row of seats. You get a predictably large boot with a 748-litre capacity with the third row of seats stowed, increasing to 1,815 litres when all five rear seats are folded flat.

Peugeot has tweaked the arrangement of that middle row of seats; the outer two are wider than before, with the centre seat now narrower and sacrificing its ISOFIX points. There’s a greater focus on comfort for the rear seat passengers, with a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting and aluminium and fabric trim stretching from the front seats to the second row.

Up front, the dashboard, seats and tech are carried over from the E-3008, so the driver gets the same ‘floating’ i-Cockpit system. For UK cars, the widescreen 21-inch display is fitted as standard, performing both driving information and infotainment duties. A smaller touchscreen sits lower on the dashboard for controlling climate and media.

What are the engine options, specs and range of the E-5008?

The E-5008 will initially be launched as an EV, coming in three different motor and battery configurations. The base model uses a 201bhp front-mounted motor powered by a 78kWh battery, with a claimed range of up to 327 miles. A Long Range model will be offered in due course, using a 228bhp motor and a larger 98kWh battery for a claimed range of 410 miles.

Top-spec E-5008s get an additional motor mounted at the rear, providing four-wheel drive. Total power output stands at 321bhp, while its 73kWh battery provides enough juice for a claimed 310 miles of range. Thanks to 160kW rapid-charging, a 20-80% recharge should take around 30 minutes for models with the smaller battery.

The EV will be joined by a mild-hybrid model, using the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine, six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and small electric motor found in other models from Stellantis. A plug-in hybrid E-5008 is expected to appear in the future, too.

How much does the Peugeot E-5008 cost and when can I order one?

There’s no official pricing for the UK market yet, but the electric E-5008 is expected to be one Peugeot’s most expensive models when it goes on sale this autumn. The E-3008 already starts from around £45,000, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the E-5008 nudged nearer to £50,000.

The mild hybrid model is expected to arrive next year and should bring a more affordable entry-point to the E-5008 range, possibly starting from around £40,000.
