Peugeot has unveiled the new E-5008, the fully-electric replacement for its popular seven-seater SUV.

Designed from the outset as an electric model, the new E-5008 has a range of zero-emission motors (WLTP cycles awaiting approval ) offering from 500 to 660 km electric range, including an all-wheel drive (AWD ) dual motor and a long range version.

The French brand says the E-5008 will have AC charging of up to 22kW (11kW is standard ) and 160kW on DC rapid charging power. A 20-80 per cent charge is said to take half an hour.

To support customers in their transition to full electrification, Peugeot says it is also offering its new E-5008 with a hybrid engine.

The E-5008 Hybrid 136 e-DCS6 features the Peugeot Hybrid 48V system, which consists of a new-generation 136 hp petrol engine coupled with a dual-clutch six-speed gearbox that incorporates an electric motor.

Thanks to a battery that recharges while driving, Peugeot claims this technology offers extra torque at low revs and a reduction of up to 15 percent in fuel consumption (5.7 l/100 km in WLTP mixed cycle - WLTP cycle under approval ).

In urban driving, the new 5008 Hybrid 136 e-DCS6 can operate up to 50 percent of the time in fully-electric zero-emission mode, according to Peugeot.

Peugeot's new SUV and will be available in two trim levels: 'Allure' and 'GT'. The latter includes 20-inch alloys, Pixel LED headlights, front parking sensors, an electric tailgate with hands-free function, heated front seats and steering wheel, and adaptive cruise control with stop-start traffic jam assist. It also has Alcantara suede upholstery.

The Allure model includes a 21-inch curved screen, ambient lighting, wireless phone charging, keyless entry, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, LED headlights, and 19-inch alloy wheels. This also gets 'vegan-leather' seats.

There are six colours to choose from: Obsession Blue, Ingaro Blue, Okenite White, Pearl Black, Artense Grey, and Titanium Grey. The GT version gets two-tone paint with a shiny black roof as standard.

With all seven seats up the new E-5008 has a boot space of 259 litres, but this can be increased 1,815 litres when the back five seats are down. Boot space is 748 litres in a five-seater configuration.

The new Peugeot E-5008 is built on the STLA Medium platform from Stellantis, and will be made exclusively at the Sochaux plant in France.

Gowan Auto, the Peugeot importer for Ireland, expects the new E-5008 to arrive here in the fourth quarter of this year, with prices to be confirmed around then.
