The new Peugeot E-5008 is here, and this is one of the few all-electric seven-seaters on the market today. Read on for all you need to know.

  • New Peugeot E-5008 revealed
  • Seven-seat electric SUV
  • Similar styling to the E-3008
  • Shares parts with that car
  • Up to 410 miles of range
  • On sale in the autumn

This is the new Peugeot E-5008, an all-electric seven-seat SUV which shares most of its technology with the coupe-esque E-3008. It’ll do up to 410 miles on a charge, and there will be hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants at a later date as well.

The Kia EV9 and Volvo EX90 are the only other two seven-seat EVs on the market right now, however they’re both larger than the E-5008, and the Peugeot is also likely to be far less expensive when it goes on sale in the autumn.

New Peugeot E-5008 design

There’s no hiding the fact that the new Peugeot E-5008 is based on the smaller E-3008, because they share almost exactly the same front-end design.

This means you get a slim set of headlights neatly hidden below the bonnet line, along with the signature Peugeot three-claw LED running lights. The grill is pretty imposing as well, with a cool body-coloured chequerboard pattern helping it stand out.

It’s the side profile which sets the E-5008 apart from the E-3008, because it has a much more boxy, SUV-like silhouette compared to its more swoopy sibling. Peugeot are coming out with some properly funky alloy wheel designs these days, and you can choose between 19 or 20-inch rims.

Looking to the rear, you can see the family resemblance to other Peugeot models. The three-strake taillights and gloss black trim across the tailgate is very similar to that found on the 408 and E-3008. The trim around the lower bumper also helps give this car a more purposeful stance.

New Peugeot E-5008 interior and infotainment

From the front seats, the new Peugeot E-5008 has exactly the same cabin as the E-3008. This is no bad thing though, because it’s one of the most stylish and distinctive interiors we’ve seen in years.

The multi-layered dash is wrapped in some funky grey fabric, and all the major controls are angled towards the driver to help you feel cocooned, like you’re sitting in a sports car rather than a practical family SUV.

Sitting proudly atop the dashboard is a whopping 21-inch curved screen, housing both your digital driver’s display and the infotainment system. This is the latest generation of Peugeot’s i-Cockpit system, meaning you view the screen over the top of the dinky steering wheel rather than through it.

You’ll be looking at the E-5008 over the 3008 for its extra pair of seats, because this is one of the few seven-seater EVs out there. There is the Kia EV9 and Volvo EX90 to choose from, however these cars are both larger and likely to be far more expensive than the Peugeot.

That boxy shape should also lend a healthy dose of extra practicality over the coupe-like E-3008. With the rear two seats folded you get 748-litres of boot space, 228-litres more than the E-3008. A Kia EV9 does trump this figure with 828 litres of space, however that car is physically bigger as well.

With all seven seats in place you have 259 litres of space to play with, which is about the same as you get in a Hyundai i10. Not massive but it should be enough for a few shopping bags.

New Peugeot E-5008 motors and batteries

There are three motor and battery combinations to choose from in the Peugeot E-5008, and one stands out in particular. You can get this car with a 98kWh battery paired to a 230hp electric motor, and this model has an impressive 410 miles of range.

Here’s a refresher on the competition. A Kia EV9 can manage up to 349 miles on a charge, a Volvo EX90 has 363 miles of range and a Skoda Enyaq can do 348 miles. Even the smaller and more aerodynamic Polestar 2 falls a few miles short of this seven-seater family bus.

You can also have a 210hp motor with a 73kWh battery, and this car has 311 miles of range. If you’re after a turn of speed, there’s a dual-motor model with 320hp and a 73kWh battery which can do the same 311 miles of range.

If you’re still sceptical about switching to an EV, there will also be a hybrid version available from launch. This uses a 136hp petrol engine paired to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, and there’s an added electric motor to boost efficiency.

A plug-in hybrid will then join the range in 2025. It’ll use a 150hp petrol engine paired to a 120hp electric motor. The combined power output is limited to 195hp, and it’ll be able to do 49 miles on electric power alone.

When can I buy a new Peugeot E-5008?

The new Peugeot E-5008 will be available to order from Autumn this year, however pricing hasn’t been nailed down quite yet. The smaller E-3008 starts from just under £46,000, so this bigger seven-seater is likely to fetch around £50,000.

That would make it a whopping £15,000 cheaper than a Kia EV9, and it’s around half the price of a Volvo EX90.
