Peugeot has announced the 2025 E-5008, an electric iteration of its seven-seat SUV, scheduled for European delivery later this year and an Australian launch in 2025.

Positioned to compete in size with the likes of the Kia EV9 and the Mercedes-Benz EQB, the E-5008 will join the electric SUV market in Australia.

It shares its platform with the E-3008, which is expected in Australia by late 2024, and features a longer overall length and wheelbase compared to its predecessor.

This size adjustment may reclassify it as a 'large SUV' in Australia, aligning its dimensions more closely with those of the Hyundai Santa Fe.

The vehicle's design prioritizes electric propulsion while also accommodating petrol engines, indicating the future availability of hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants.

The E-5008 offers up to three electric powertrain configurations in Europe.

The base model includes a 73kWh battery providing up to 500km of range, while a variant with a 98kWh battery offers a range of up to 660km.

There's also a dual-motor all-wheel-drive option for increased performance.

Each variant supports fast charging, aiming to reduce charging times during travel.

Design-wise, the E-5008 adopts elements from the E-3008, featuring a geometric grille and slim headlights.

The model introduces new wheel designs and offers a spacious interior that accommodates flexible seating and cargo configurations.

The SUV incorporates features like a panoramic digital display, customizable dashboard shortcuts, touch-sensitive steering wheel controls, and natural language voice recognition.

These aspects aim to enhance the driving experience with modern technology.

Peugeot highlights the use of over 500kg of green materials in the E-5008's construction, reflecting a focus on sustainability.

Its arrival in Australia, following the E-3008, marks Peugeot's entry into the electric SUV market with features designed to meet varying driver needs and preferences.

The inclusion of advanced infotainment options and sustainable materials in the interior design points to Peugeot's efforts to merge eco-friendliness with contemporary vehicle amenities.
