Peugeot E-5008 - Review


The Peugeot e-5008 has been unveiled as the French brand’s entry into the rapidly growing segment of electric seven-seaters, offering the best range in its class and likely the lowest price. Essentially a taller, longer variant of the newly launched E-3008, it comes equipped with an impressive array of specs and features.


It’s built on the Stellantis STLA-M platform and comes with three different electric powertrains. The entry-level model is the 210 Single Motor and features a 73 kWh battery. Next is the 230 Long Range Single Motor, which might be the best of the bunch, offering a large 98 kWh battery and an impressive range. At the top is the 320 Dual Motor AWD, equipped with two electric motors and the smaller battery option. The numbers in the names represent the power output in PS, translating to 207 bhp, 227 bhp, and 316 bhp.

On the road, we drove the smaller battery version of the E-5008. While it may lack the strong performance and instantaneous torque found in other electric SUVs, it still feels competent and enjoyable to drive. For most people transporting a big family in the 7 seats, this will suit just fine. Additionally, it offers three modes of regenerative braking to minimise brake pedal use at low speeds and enhance efficiency.

Range and Charging

The Peugeot 5008 comes with a WLTP range of up to 500km for the all-wheel drive version. While the 98kWh battery found on the single motor, front-wheel drive setup will get you a claimed range of an impressive 660km.

Charging reaches up to 160-kW at a rapid charger, allowing for an 80% charge in around 30 minutes. AC charging peaks at 11 kW as standard but can be optionally boosted to 22 kW. Most owners will charge at home using a 7-kW charger, which can fully charge the battery in approximately 11 to 15 hours, depending on the battery size.

Design and Interior

Style is at the forefront of Peugeot design, and this is especially evident in the 5008. It features fang-like daytime running lights, angular headlights, and a full-width grille. The interior showcases a sophisticated mix of metal-effect finishes, glossy plastics, and textiles, complemented by eight-way ambient lighting and a massive 21-inch screen that curves toward the driver. Dubbed the 'Panoramic i-Cockpit', this setup includes a central touchscreen with a configurable home screen, a digital driver's display, and a newly designed steering wheel. GT models go even further, adding a head-up display.

The Peugeot 5008 offers ample space throughout. The middle row provides plenty of head and legroom, thanks to the flat floor that eliminates awkward foot positioning for the middle seat passenger. However, opting for the panoramic roof will reduce some of that headroom. Boot space is generous, with 952 litres available when five seats are in use, expanding to a massive 2,150 litres when all seats are folded down. While it might not be as roomy as it is in the Kia EV9 or Volvo XC90 PHEV but is expected to be more on the affordable side of the 7-seater segment.

Cost Considerations

We won’t know the final pricing details for a while, but it’s expected to be the most affordable way to get seven seats and an electric powertrain. Additionally, Peugeot now offers a standard eight-year, 160,000 km warranty with its ‘Allure Care’ package, covering the battery, electric motor, powertrain, and main electrical and mechanical components, making it the best standard warranty available from any manufacturer.


This is an excellent addition to the electric car segment for anyone with a large family. As one of the few electric 7-seaters currently on the market, the Peugeot e-5008 stands out with its competitive price, stylish cabin, and impressive range. It's definitely a compelling option worthy of consideration for those looking to make the switch to electric.
