Peugeot e-208 has a bigger brother, the Peugeot e-2008

The Peugeot e-208 is not the only new all-electric Peugeot entering the European market. The second one is the slightly bigger Peugeot e-2008 crossover/SUV, based on the same eCMP platform.

In an in-depth review, Autogefühl compares the conventional 2008 with e-2008, including exterior, interior and driving experience.

The all-electric version is about €8,000 more expensive than ICE, starting at around €35,000 ($38,900).

The interior of the e-2008 looks great, although the unique design affects the driving position for tall drivers (steering wheel). On the other hand, the top of the line trim offers superb seats.

There is enough space on the rear bench and trunk capacity seems to be the same as in the case of ICE.

The e-2008 is slightly heavier than the conventional version, but the low center of gravity makes it basically as agile as the ICE. According to Autogefühl, thanks to the silent and smooth electric drive, it's a relaxing and extremely fun to drive a car.

Not too intense regenerative braking, even in B mode, does not allow for an entirely single-pedal driving as in many other EVs.
