The Peugeot 3008 and 5008 have both been announced with fully electric powertrains. Stellantis revealed the Peugeot e-3008, the first vehicle built on the new STLA mid-range platform, at the unveiling of the e-Lion project. The Peugeot e-3008 is expected to be released later this year.
The e-3008, according to Peugeot, can travel up to 700 kilometers on a single charge. There will be three different types of electric motors available. Peugeot will release five new electric models in the next two years; among these are the Peugeot e-3008 and Peugeot e-5008. The other is the well-known Peugeot e-308/e-308 SW and Peugeot e-408. The initial one is now available for pre-order.
Stellantis is keeping to its previously announced schedule, which calls for the release of the "STLA Medium" platform for C and D-segment passenger cars in the current year and the "STLA Large" platform for D and E-segment vehicles. With the announcement of the first STLA EV under the Peugeot brand, this schedule is now being realized. Stellantis disclosed during the presentation of the platform's designs that the STLA should allow for a range of up 800 km for BEVs. In 2026, the new 'STLA Small' platform, designed to allow BEVs to travel at least 500 kilometers on a single charge, will replace the second generation of the platform 'e-CMP' used for passenger cars in segments A, B, and C. In 2024, the "STLA Frame" Stellantis platform will be available for large SUVs and pickup trucks with a battery electric vehicle (BEV) range of at least 500 kilometers.
Jerome Micheron has stated that while Peugeot will transition to new platforms, the brand's essence should be preserved. On the other hand, Peugeot has announced new dimensions, a revised design language, and a rethought cabin layout and functionality. In a recent CES research called Inception Concept, Peugeot provided a sneak peek at the aesthetic direction it will take with its electric vehicles beginning in 2025.
Also, the next version of Peugeot's intelligent i-Cockpit will debut in battery-electric vehicles starting in 2026. Stellantis, the parent firm, will provide the data center (STLA-Brain), a central digital tool (STLA-Smartcockpit), and autonomous driving capabilities (STLA-Autodrive). The company is bringing new car features by teaming up with companies like Amazon and Foxconn to supply components and components.
Peugeot's commitment to transitioning to an all-electric lineup in Europe by 2030 is also reaffirmed in the latest announcement. Peugeot plans to have an entirely electric lineup by 2025, with the first electrified models hitting the market this year. This still contains hybrids, though. By 2030, we hope that won't be the case any longer. In light of this, the French have introduced a new mild hybrid system (the MHEV 48v) of their design. Nonetheless, just a little.
Peugeot's goal for "Carbon Net Zero," or CO2 neutrality of the brand, is set for 2038, where their electrification approach comes in. In this scenario, battery electric vehicles' lifespan is expected to increase from the current 15 years to 20–25 years. It is necessary to rethink the cars themselves in terms of how much they weigh, how much waste they produce, how many resources, and how much energy they consume. Peugeot, for instance, has stated that it plans to eliminate chrome and alloys from future models, utilize recycled alloy wheels, and create lighter seats.
When it comes to methods of payment, Peugeot also hopes to keep up with the changes. The first, a "pay-as-you-go" option with monthly payments based on a flat distance rate, already exists in France; the second, a "subscription" option, will launch soon and be inspired by the smartphone industry. If necessary, clients can purchase extra mileage at 7 cents per kilometer. "it is to be extended to the full model range and other markets," Peugeot says of this plan.
The second option is a more traditional form of leasing, in which the monthly payment includes the cost of the vehicle and its upkeep, insurance, and charging fees. Phil York, Director of Marketing, remarked, "The considerations of EV ownership are moving beyond basic EV principles and turning into personal logistics."
