The Peugeot 2008 and e-2008 have a new face
Peugeot has recently unveiled the new 2023 facelift of their popular compact SUV, the Peugeot 2008, and its electric counterpart, the e-2008. Both models have received a number of updates and improvements, making them even more appealing options for those looking for a stylish and environmentally friendly vehicle.
The 2008 has received a full exterior upgrade, bringing it up to speed with the rest of the Peugeot lineup. The restyled front is clearly inspired by the bigger 3008 SUV as well as the 408 fastback. There are also some new colours to select from, and new alloy wheels are available in 16in, 17in, or 18in sizes depending on trim level.
Orders will be taken in the summer, with three trim levels to choose from: Active, Allure, and GT. The latter will have a black contrast roof, body-coloured grille components, and full LED headlights.
But probably the most significant advancement has been made in the powertrain, notably for the e-2008. The all-electric version now has a bigger 54kWh battery and a new electric motor, boosting power from 134bhp to 154bhp and increasing maximum range from 214 miles to 252 miles. Peugeot has also revealed that a 48V mild-hybrid would be available in 2024 to bridge the gap between the fuel and electric models. This would combine a 136bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and a small electric motor that can reportedly reduce fuel consumption by up to 15%.
