Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 – My Dream My Car : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Car” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022”.
This generation of Peugeot e-2008 has a much more interesting look than its predecessor for many reasons, and its more bespoke style will hit you first. Hopefully not in the literal sense, but now that it comes with the option of almost silent electric power, it has certainly become much more possible.
Peugeot e-2008 looks a bit like an alien hamster. And we mean that as a whole compliment. If you’re one of those people who sees the face in the properties of inanimate objects, the e-2008 may look fun instead of totally beautiful, but at least it attracts you. Come on, Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 – My Dream My Car.

Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 – My Dream My Car
If you’re after an electric SUV that looks and feels like a petrol car, look no further. From the outside, there’s little to give away that the Peugeot e-2008 has a battery and electric motor lurking under its skin. For those who don’t want to make an EV statement, Peugeot is lending its EV models a few subtle differences to regular petrol and diesel models, and we rather like the approach.
The upshot is that if you want a Peugeot 2008-shaped car, you can choose between petrol, diesel or this electric e-2008, all available with the same trim level choice as well. That’s bound to boost its appeal to buyers feeling intimidated by opting for an electric car.
The market for electric SUVs is growing rapidly, and the Peugeot is up against the Kia e-Niro, MG ZS EV, Citroen e-C4, and Vauxhall Mokka-e. The Citroen and Vauxhall share the Peugeot’s battery pack and motors, so offer similar range and performance, while the Kia and MG major on practicality and value, respectively. The good news for you is that we’ve compared those cars, and you can read all about that on our Best Electric SUVs page.

Unlike rivals that have been retro-engineered to accept battery power, the e-2008 was designed from the outset to have electric running gear as well as fossil-fuel burning engines, so it promises not to be shackled with the compromises that normally affect these types of cars, such as boot that’s been shrunk to make way for a bulky battery.

Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 : First Impressive Looks
Indeed, Peugeot e-2008 isn’t a huge car, but with a 434 litre boot, there’s space to load it up and head off on holiday, which will surely appeal to families. The boot has a false floor, meaning a flat loading area, while the space under the floor would accommodate all sorts of accessories you might not need all the time. That means you can stow the charging cables beneath the floor if you want to.
From an exterior design point of view, the Peugeot e-2008 is littered with crossover touches, giving those SUV looks, but this design is shared with the combustion version – and there’s little here to make it standout as electric, save for the ‘e’ on the wings and coloured flashes in the grille.
There are roof rails so mounting a rack would be an option, plus there’s also the option for a decent-sized sunroof to let a little more light in.
With the crossover segment exploding, mini SUV looks are top of the list for many people. The Peugeot 2008 is a familiar sight, the distinctive light signature on the front, with that slashing daytime running light something you’ll find on many suburban streets.
It follows the line of the (huge) 5008 and (mid-sized) 3008 and you can see the family design, but the 2008 pulls it off a little better because it’s not trying to be the size of a house. That brings some proportionality to it, in that it looks a little more like a toy car, but everyone seems to love that.
Those boxy looks continue through the design, giving the sense of strength rather than sportiness; indeed, this is a car that rides softer than the smaller and sportier Peugeot e-208 hatch, reinforcing that sense that it’s designed more for comfort than performance.
That also means there’s more knee space for the rear passengers, so it’s more accommodating for adults, although having packed three school kids in the back with their bags, the comment was “it looks bigger than it is”.
While there’s enough knee and head room to seat adults front and back, when you have three on the rear bench, things do feel a little tight around the elbows.
Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 : Performance and Range
The maximum range of the Peugeot e-2008 has been improved. Peugeot says you will get up to 214 miles on a single charge from the new 2022 model, a notable improvement on the 193-miles the e-2008 had when it was first launched in 2019.
To squeeze more miles out of the 50kWh battery, Peugeot has fitted ‘A+’ tyres to cut rolling resistance. A new gearbox ratio has also been added to optimise the range on the road and motorway journeys.
The 2022 e-2008 also gets a new heat pump, coupled with an interior humidity sensor installed at the top of the windscreen, which will optimise the energy efficiency of the heating and air conditioning system.
The 50kWh powers a 100kW electric motor that delivers 136PS to the front-wheels. You also get 260Nm of torque from 300rpm, which means the e-2008 will cover 0-62mph in a respectable nine seconds.
The e-2008 can be hooked to 100kW rapid charger to add up to 80% battery charge in just 30 minutes, while a full charge using a conventional 7.4kW and 11kW charger will take between eight hours and five hours. A full charge from a domestic plug will take up to 20 hours.
Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 : Comfort and Fun Driving
First impressions don’t break from the electric car norm, but if you’re new to EVs with the e-2008 – as we suspect a vast swathe of buyers or leasers will be – there’ll still be much novelty value aboard.
You’ll glide away in near-silence, which means pedestrians getting as unwisely close to you as spectators on a Group B rally stage. Passers-by still aren’t used to cars creeping quietly up on them, after all. Once up to speed, you’re suddenly hyper-aware of wind and tyre noise. Neither is especially uncouth in this car, it’s just there’s no longer 3,000rpm of internal combustion to smother them on a motorway cruise.
Some EVs don’t ride especially well, stiffened up to counter their extra weight over internal combustion. The e-2008 is absolutely fine, and much like its petrol and diesel range mates, doesn’t really suffer from a punishing ride any more than its myriad rivals on similarly plump 18in wheels. It’s a far cry from cloud-like French cars of old, but it won’t rattle your teeth out. As ever, avoid large alloys and you’ll have a nicer time for it.
But there’s more depth to the experience here. Just like in the e-208 and Corsa-e, a Drive Mode toggle switches between Eco (80bhp), Normal (108bhp) and Sport (the full 134bhp) modes and allows you to balance performance and battery range as you see fit. Kept in the latter it’s a pleasingly brisk car – the punchiest feeling 2008 in the entire range – but in truth you might explore it once and then default to Normal the rest of the time (just like the car does on start-up), only really calling on Eco when the next charger looks ominously far away. There’s an app to help you manage all that sort of stuff, of course.
Of course, a firm-edged ride does wonders for agility and – whether buyers actually crave it or not – the 2008 makes its case as the sportiest small crossover thingy in the Peugeot, Citroen, DS and Vauxhall empire. We suspect that’s hardly of utmost importance, but it does mean that if Peugeot ever whacks sporty badges and another e-motor at this, they’ll probably fit just fine.
Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 : Electric Range and Charging
Peugeot claim the e-2008 has a claimed range of 206 miles from its 50kW battery and we must admit, it was a good reflection of what we experienced.
At times there were some quite sporadic jumps on the Digital Cockpit’s range display, however, over the course of our time behind the wheel, it remained true to form. Of course, it will always vary depending on driving habits, but we found the claimed mileage a good reflection of its capabilities.
The e-2008 is hugely practical if you have access to a 100kW rapid charger, which takes it from 0-80% in just 30 minutes.
If you need to charge it at home, it will take 7.5 hours to charge completely via a 7kW charging point or in 24 hours with a domestic 3kW socket.
Peugeot e-2008 Review 2022 : Interior Design
Good as it may be to drive, it’s the e-2008’s cabin that’ll likely win most people over. This is how we imagined future car interiors would look a couple of decades ago, when we also presumed monorail and hoverboard would be chief among 2020’s alternative transport options.
Its headline act is undoubtedly the ‘3D cockpit’, standard on all but the cheapest 2008 (which will count for just ten per cent of sales). It takes the now de rigueur digital instruments but adds a double-layered, holographic feel to them, and Peugeot tells us it cuts 0.5sec from drivers’ reaction times.
Far more impressive in real life than any pictures, imagine it like Audi’s Virtual Cockpit if it could display a big sat-nav map and a big speedometer all at once, among a vast array of other functions. In the e-2008 you can toggle to a pleasing graphic showing the energy flow between the batteries and motors. The biggest compliment we can pay the whole setup is that it makes sense of Peugeot’s diddy steering wheel, finally warranting the compromised driving position it brings taller drivers.
Beyond a joyous set of dials, there are other goodies: four USB ports – one of them in the new-fangled USB-C format – as well as inductive charging, so you won’t be short of power for you and your passengers’ devices. One of which will also link seamlessly to the touchscreen via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, though a neat forward-hinged cubby hole will also safely prop a phone up in portrait mode if you’re keen to use Waze while still viewing the car’s own media displays. A nice touch, huh? Thought’s gone into this car.
The 434-litre luggage space (back seats up) is no worse than a petrol 2008 and the boot floor has two tiers, allowing you to keep mucky charging cables away from your Nice Things. There’s enough space in the rear seats for most sizes of adult, too. Particularly if you’ve avoided the big pano glass roof.
Striking looks and classy, spacious interior are matched to impressive comfort and refinement to make the Peugeot e-2008 a relaxing and desirable choice. It’s also as easy to drive as it is to live with, while the range is just about good enough for stress free progress.
