Is the Peugeot E-3008 a good car?

So far, Peugeot’s electric models have been kinda small and kinda short-ranged — think of the e-208 or e-2008. Now, the French car maker is really coming to take a swing at all-conquering Tesla, with the all-electric E-3008, which will eventually have a range of up to 435 miles. It’s kind of like when the nerdy kid in a movie has a training montage and then comes back ready to kick ass and take names.

That 435-mile E-3008 is a little way away for the moment, as you'll have to wait for the arrival of the long-range model with the big battery. In the meantime, the E-3008 offers 326 miles – enough to put it right into contention with the likes of the Tesla Model Y, Volkswagen ID4, and Hyundai Ioniq 5.

The Peugeot E-3008 makes a case for itself alongside those alternatives thanks to a chic and stylish exterior, and a lovely interior. There’s a huge wraparound screen on top of the dashboard, which is actually one super-wide display. You also get the Peugeot-typical — and somewhat ‘Marmite’ — tiny hexagonal steering wheel set down low, almost in your lap.

Peugeot has really gone to town on the E-3008’s cabin, filling it with ambient lighting and squidgy plastics, so the overall effect is pretty stunning, and up to the same sort of standard you might expect in premium-badged German alternatives. Just with a much more interesting design.

Space is impressive in the back seats, and even with that dramatic, sweeping roof adults can get comfortable. Behind them, there’s a useful 520-litre boot, but this is smaller than most alternatives offer, and there’s no front boot for extra storage options.

The Peugeot E-3008 has a funky interior that’s about as far from Tesla minimalism as you can get

Where the Peugeot is more competitive is with its electric motor and battery setup. The E-3008's impressive range is down to being incredibly efficient, and when you do need to top up at a public fast charger, you can go from 20-80% capacity in 30 minutes.

And the E-3008 isn't just good on paper, because it's also a pleasure to drive. It can be a bit jiggly over bumps around town, and it's not particularly fun when the road gets twisty, but if you want something that's quiet, refined and easy to drive, it's a good option. The driving position can take some getting used to, but once you get comfortable this Peugeot will quietly eat through big miles with ease, and decent visibility means it's not too tricky to pilot around tight city streets, either.

At a full £10,000 more than the petrol-powered 3008, the electric version might seem pricey. But it’s actually competitive with similar zero-emission cars, especially when you consider how lovely it is inside.

It would be easy to baulk at the idea of a circa-£50,000 Peugeot family car, but the E-3008 isn’t actually too expensive when compared with other similar electric cars. Its £45,000 starting price is the same as a Tesla Model Y and Kia EV6, and not much more than the Volkswagen ID4 or Hyundai Ioniq 5. And top-specification versions of all those cars are pricier than the top-of-the-line Peugeot.

There are two trim levels called Allure and GT, with all models getting that hi-tech widescreen interior setup, a reversing camera, smart 19-inch alloy wheels and wireless phone charging. GT models also get adaptive cruise control, larger, 20-inch wheels, Alcantara upholstery, and some cool design features that give the car a more upmarket look. It is a bit of a shame that you don't get a heat pump as standard, though. These help warm the car in cold weather without putting strain on the battery, which improves range when it's chilly and is particularly useful in an English winter...

Performance and drive comfort

The Peugeot E-3008 is delightfully refined for long motorway drives, but it's not much fun on a twisty road

In town

Driving around town is easy thanks to the light steering, and the electric motors have just enough punch to get you out of junctions sharpish – though you don't have the snappy off-the-line performance you get in some EVs, such as the Tesla Model Y. The Peugeot is easier to drive smoothly because of this, though.

While the car generally deals with large bumps and undulations in the road with little fuss, sharper edges such as potholes and expansion joints can rather thud through the cabin. It means that on poorly maintained roads the car can jiggle about somewhat, a bit like a sporty car, despite being far from it.

Visibility is good looking forward and to the sides thanks to large windows, though the rear quarter has large pillars that block your view quite a bit. To make manoeuvres easier you get a fantastic turning circle that almost rivals that of a London cab, as well as reversing sensors and a rear-facing camera as standard, with the latter getting a water spray so road grime doesn't block your view. Step up to GT models and you also get front parking sensors.

On the motorway

At higher speeds the jiggling over bumps subsides and the E-3008 is actually a fantastic car in which to cover long distances. The seats are comfortable and the car deals with road imperfections smoothly. There's almost no rumble from the tyres with only some wind noise to contend with, though you don't have to raise your voice at all to talk with your passengers.

And although the motors don't feel particularly powerful at lower speeds, once you're on the move there's enough performance in reserve to get up to speed quickly. This is useful for short on-ramps or when pulling off swift overtakes.

It is slightly disappointing given the E-3008's starting price that you only get regular cruise control as standard, with GT-spec cars getting an adaptive system that can maintain your distance to the car in front.

On a twisty road

On a country road you once again notice that the Peugeot E-3008's suspension is quite firm, so uneven road surfaces can have you rocking in your seat. Fortunately, the body settles quickly and it doesn't lean too much in corners so you don't feel like you're captaining a ship in a storm.

However, despite a hint of sportiness to the way the suspension deals with bumps, the E-3008 is not a particularly fun car to drive down a twisty road. In its normal settings, the steering is so light it can be difficult to judge your inputs and place the car accurately on the road, while the eco-friendly tyres can lose grip relatively quickly when pushed, especially in damp conditions.

You can select the sport mode, which makes all of the car's power available all of the time, but it also makes the steering heavier, which feels unnatural and means you're exerting a lot of effort just to get the car turning. And you can't mix and match settings to your preference, either. As a result, the Tesla Model Y is much more fun on your favourite B-road.

Space and practicality

There’s plenty of storage in the cabin, but alternatives get a bigger boot

There’s loads of space in the front of the Peugeot E-3008, and it’s easy to get a good driving position. The steering wheel doesn’t have much adjustability, but there’s so much movement in the seat that it doesn’t matter too much. And if you’ve struggled with the steering wheel blocking the view of the dials in other Peugeots, that's less of a problem than usual here, but it’s worth trying before you buy.

There are plenty of cubby holes to store things. The door bins are big enough, but they’re not felt-lined so items can rattle about as you drive. You also get two cupholders, huge under-armrest storage that can be chilled, and another big space beneath a nicely damped cover under the screens. There’s also a couple of USB slots for charging your phone.

Space in the back seats

Those in the back won’t feel hard done by either, because there’s loads of room despite the sloping roof. Even taller passengers will find their knees won’t bang the seats in front and their hair won’t brush the headliner, though the floor is a bit high, which lifts your thighs off the seat cushion and could make things a little uncomfortable on long journeys.

It’s a bit tight for three across the back and, with the outside passengers pushed towards the door, they will find their head resting on the roof.

Storage isn’t quite as impressive as up front, but you do get a small area between the seats and door bins that will hold a small bottle. Disappointing that there are no USB slots in the back, though, which will upset the kids.

On the plus side, all that space means it’s easy to fit a child seat, and the doors open pretty wide to help with access. The ISOFIX points are behind a zip in the fabric, so it can be a bit fiddly to actually get things hooked up.

Boot space

The Peugeot E-3008 has a 520-litre boot, which is smaller than most alternatives offer, with only the Kia EV6 having less space at 490 litres. The Tesla Model Y beats all with its massive 854-litre boot, while the Hyundai Ioniq 5 gets 571 litres and the Volkswagen ID4 has 543 litres. You could also consider the Skoda Enyaq, which is a bit cheaper and not as posh inside, but has a really practical 585-litre boot.

Another mark against the E-3008 is the lack of a front boot. The Model Y wins again here with a 117-litre space that’s a great place to store charging cables so they don’t get in the way in the main boot area. Both the Ioniq 5 and EV6 get a ‘froot’, too. At least the Peugeot has decent underfloor storage in the boot that presents a viable alternative location for your cables.

Interior style, infotainment and accessories

The interior is lovely and feels posher than some premium alternatives, but there are scratchy plastics here and there

Peugeot is building some of the best interiors in the business at the moment. Not only do you get funky designs, you also get upmarket materials that rival those you find in posh German cars.

The E-3008 is no different, with its funky multi-layered design that should feel like a cluttered mess but is actually classy and coherent. Ignore the massive screens and it gives off 1970’s LA showhome vibes.

There’s fabric on the centre part of the dashboard that sweeps around in front of you before seamlessly lining up with the centre console that splits the front seat passengers. There’s also a recessed area beneath the windscreen with ambient lighting that looks really classy. It’s a proper antidote to the boring minimalism seen in so many premium cars these days.

Poke around in the lower areas of the cabin and there are cheaper plastics to be found, such as on the door bins, but they don’t detract from the overall ambience too much.

Naturally, there are displays aplenty. Sat atop the dashboard is a sleek 21.0-inch screen – it's one complete unit with the information split into two sections. The one directly ahead shows all your driving information such as speed and range, and you get high-resolution maps to rival the class-leading Virtual Cockpit from Audi. On the right of this is the infotainment touchscreen, which is incredibly fast and feels on par with modern tablets for responsiveness.

It’s a shame there are no physical buttons for the climate settings, but at least the temperature is always on the screen so you can change it without having to go through loads of menus. There's also a handy shortcut button for the assistance systems, so you can quickly turn off anything that you find intrusive, though it is slightly awkward to reach behind the steering wheel.

There’s a third display that sits above the centre console with shortcut buttons, and this is customisable so you can have your most-used settings quickly to hand. It’s a really clever and genuinely useful system.

Electric range, charging and tax

At launch, the Peugeot E-3008 is only available with a 210hp single electric motor that’s powered by a 73kWh battery, giving it an official range of up to 327 miles. Acceleration is brisk rather than quick, with 0-62mph coming up in 8.8 seconds. That should make it easier to drive sensibly and hit the official 4.5mi/kWh efficiency rating though, which would make it one of the more efficient electric cars on sale.

There will be more choice eventually. A long-range version with a bigger battery is due by the end of 2024 and promises a whopping 435 miles, joined by a high-performance all-wheel drive model with 320hp but a lower range figure around the same time.

Being a zero-emission vehicle means there’s currently no car tax to pay, and company car drivers also get a really low benefit-in-kind rate that makes the E-3008 (and all electric cars) cheap as chips to run.

Safety and security

The Peugeot E-3008 has not been safety tested by Euro NCAP yet so it’s impossible to speculate on how safe it might be in a crash. However, the two most recent Peugeots to go through the tests, the 408 and 308 in 2022, both received four stars out of five. That’s a bit disappointing, with both scoring 76% for adult occupant safety where the majority of cars score comfortably above 80%.

As standard you get the basic assistance kit such as post-collision braking, lane-keeping assistance and an emergency braking system with night-time detection of pedestrians and cyclists. Allure models come with basic cruise control, but GT versions upgrade this to adaptive cruise control, which maintains your distance to the car in front. You can also pay extra for a 360-degree camera.

Reliability and problems

The old reputation of Peugeots being unreliable can be firmly forgotten, with the firm turning things around in recent years. Ownership surveys actually make it one of the more reliable and well-rated brands among UK drivers. How reliable the E-3008 will be remains to be seen, but Peugeot’s other electric cars haven't prompted any cause for concern.

You get a three-year, unlimited mileage warranty as standard. This is in line with the time period offered by most car manufacturers in the UK, though some others do put a limit on the mileage. Hyundai betters this with five years, Kia offers seven years, and Toyota and Lexus cars have 10 years of warranty cover if you keep up annual servicing. On top of the standard Peugeot warranty, you also get eight years of cover for the main battery.
