Peugeot E-5008 is a seven-seat EV with a 410-mile range

Peugeot has revealed its new E-5008 seven-seat SUV with three electric powertrains and a class-leading range.

The second-generation 5008 is built on Stellantis’s STLA-M platform and is the first version to be envisioned as an EV from the start. That has allowed Peugeot to fit three different EV options to the car, alongside two petrol/electric hybrids.

Entry-level models feature a single 207bhp motor with a 73kWh battery which should offer up to 311 miles of range. Above that is the longest-range version, which uses a single 227bhp motor and a 98kWh battery for a 410-mile maximum range. For those more interested in performance, there’s a dual-motor option with 316bhp and a 311-mile range from the 73kWh battery.

All versions of the E-5008 feature 160kW DC charging for a 20-80% charge time of 30 minutes, and 11kW AC charging. A 22kW on-board AC charger is available as an optional extra, as is a heat pump for improved efficiency.

At 4.79m long, 1.89m wide and 1.69m tall, the E-5008 sits above the E-3008 in Peugeot’s expanding EV range. It joins a still relatively shallow pool of seven-seat EVs alongside the electric version of Peugeot’s own Rifter van-base MPV. Other alternatives include the Vauxhall/Citroen versions of the Rifter, the Mercedes EQB and the larger Kia EV9.

On the surface, the new E-5008 shares clear similarities with the previous generation but a new grille, more dramatic ‘claw mark’ running lights and full LED headlights are among changes. The new model also scraps the heavy chrome detailing of the old model in favour of grey and black trim on areas such as the front spoiler and mirror housings.

Inside, the dashboard has been completely reworked. The dual-screen setup of the old i-Cockpit has been replaced with a single 21-inch curved display that houses both instruments and infotainment. The touchscreen-based i-Toggles seen in the E-3008 also appear in the E-5008 and all versions of the car get the i-Connect Advanced infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus sat nav with an EV trip planner to incorporate charging stops.

Peugeot says the new E-5008 sets a new class benchmark for space in its third row. The second row reclines and slides and a new mechanism makes accessing the third row easier, where passengers will find a bench seat with independent back rests.

With all three rows of seats in place, the E-5008 offers 259 litres of boot space – up from 167 litres in the old model. In five-seat configuration that rises to a massive 748 litres, and up to 1,815 litres in a two-seat configuration. There is 80 litres of storage space under the row three seats and a special drawer is available as an accessory to make optimum use of this space.

The E-5008 will arrive in the UK in the autumn and there’s no word on pricing yet but Peugeot is keeping specifications simple with just Allure and GT trims and three options packs.

Allure spec includes keyless entry and start, 19-inch alloys, LED headlights, half vegan leather upholstery, customisable ambient lighting, wireless smartphone charger and a reversing camera. GT adds 20-inch wheels, two-colour paint with a black roof and Alcantara upholstery. It also gets adaptive Pixel LED headlights, front parking sensors, a powered tailgate, heated front seats, heated steering wheel and adaptive cruise control.
