New Peugeot 3008 SUV Plug-in Hybrid

The new Peugeot 3008 SUV Plug-in Hybrid will be available as two models, the HYBRID 225 and the HYBRID4 300.

Peugeot has confirmed prices and specifications for the new 3008 SUV and new 5008 SUV. The 3008 SUV offers two plug-in hybrids with fuel economy of up to 235mpg WLTP and will arrive in UK showrooms early next year, with the new 3008 SUV priced from £27,160 and the new seven-seat 5008 SUV priced from £29,585. 

The new 3008 SUV is available with a choice of diesel and petrol engines, as well as two advanced plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) options capable of driving up to 40 miles WLTP in zero emissions EV mode.

In HYBRID models, the drive mode selector allows drivers to switch between Electric, HYBRID, Sport and 4WD modes, with the latter reserved for the four-wheel drive HYBRID4 300 models.

The HYBRID4 300 e-EAT8 features a 200hp (147kW) PureTech petrol engine and two electric motors for a combined power output of 300hp (223kW) and up to 40 miles WLTP of zero-emissions EV driving. With emissions as low as 29g/km CO2 and fuel consumption of up to 235mpg WLTP, it is the only variant available with 4WD and is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds.

The HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 features a 180hp (132kW) PureTech petrol unit combined with a single 110hp (80kW) electric motor for a combined 225hp (165kW) power output. Under WLTP testing, the HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 achieves CO2 emissions as low as 31g/km and fuel consumption of up to 222mpg, and in fully electric mode provides a zero-emissions EV range of 39 miles.

Both HYBRID models feature a 13.2kWh lithium-ion battery and come with two types of on-board chargers. A 3.7kW single-phase on board charger is included as standard, with a full charge taking three hours and 45 minutes, while an optional 7.4kW on board charger is also available. A full charge using a 7.4kW Wall Box will take just one hour and 45 minutes.

The new Peugeot 3008 SUV features a new trim structure including Active, Allure and GT. Each are complemented by an intermediate level called ’Premium’, and in the UK the range starts from Active Premium.

The 3008 HYBRID starts at £37,530 for the HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 in Allure trim, and 42,530 for the HYBRID4 300 e-EAT8. The top of the range HYBRID4 300 e-EAT8 in GT Premium trim costs £47,430.
