Peugeot presented the third generation of its 3008 on September 12. The Lion brand’s best-seller went 100% electric and abandoned exclusively thermal engines. The design change is quite radical with sharper lines like an SUV coupe.

[Updated September 12, 2023 at 4:04 p.m.] It was on its historic production site in Sochaux that Peugeot presented the new Peugeot 3008 this Tuesday. After revealing the interior of its future SUV in June, then published four images of its silhouette without camouflage four days before the big day due to leaks in the press, the manufacturer has finally revealed the third generation of one of its best-sellers.

As the first photos suggested, the new 3008 presents a new, sharper look, now sporting the lines of a coupe SUV. Inside, the all-new Peugeot Panoramic i-Cockpit and its large 21-inch screen should appeal to more than one person. Also (and above all?), the Lion brand has chosen to go all-electric, also with two hybrid engines in its catalog, and to abandon 100% thermal engines on the European market.

Launched in 2016, the second generation Peugeot 3008 was a huge success for Peugeot. With more than 1.3 million units sold, it is, by far, the brand’s most profitable model, and its restyled version, released in 2020, only consolidated its leadership in the very buoyant compact SUV segment. Find all the information on the new Peugeot 3008 below!

After the immense success of the second generation 3008, expectations surrounding its successor, the Peugeot 3008 III, were necessarily high. The Lion brand, under the orders of its chief designer Matthias Hossann, inducted in 2020 after the departure of Gilles Vidal at Renault, was not content with a bland copy and paste on its most “bankable” model. Here are the main new features to know.

Thermal enthusiasts will have to mourn: the new Peugeot 3008 no longer offers any 100% gasoline or diesel engine. The SUV, the first model built on the Stellantis group’s new STLA Medium platform, will offer a mild hybrid version and a plug-in hybrid version, but Peugeot has not yet given more details. The big news is that the 3rd generation of the Peugeot 3008 is available 100% electric.

The e-3008 offers three electric engines: a 210 horsepower motor associated with a 73 KwK battery for a range of 525 kilometers, a dual 320 horsepower motor with the 73 kWh battery in four-wheel drive for an identical range, and finally the 230 horsepower engine associated with a 98 kWh battery, known as “High Autonomy”, which will allow its occupants to travel 700 kilometers with a full recharge. This is 90 kilometers more than the new Scénic E-Tech presented on September 4.

The 3rd generation of the 3008 was revealed on September 12 at the historic Sochaux factory. The manufacturer announced that the arrival in dealerships of the star of its models was scheduled for February 2024.

Peugeot has not yet communicated on the prices of its new 3008. It is interesting to know that the entry-level price for a Peugeot 3008, with gasoline engine, is today displayed at 31,050 euros by the manufacturer . The price of the 3008 of 2023 will start much higher given that the entry level will be on the mild hybrid model whose characteristics have not yet been revealed.

As for the future e-3008, which will notably compete head-on with the Renault Scénic E-Tech presented on September 4, 2023, the price should be between 45,000 and 50,000 euros. Remember that to benefit from government aid of up to 7,000 euros, the electric vehicle must not exceed 47,000 euros. But new criteria, which will come into force in 2024, will be revealed very soon.
