Built on the PSA Common Modular Platform (CMP), the latest 2008 SUV is 4.3m long (14cm longer than its predecessor), 1.7m wide and 1.54m high.

Peugeot says its fully electric 2008 SUV variant - set for launch in 2020 - will be powered by a 100kW electric motor and 50kWh battery capable of 193 miles of range (under the WLTP test).

The latest 3D i-Cockpit system in the car also features hologram technology in the configurable head-up display.

The car will be available with a choice of 100% electric, petrol or diesel powertrains.

Capable of supporting 100kW rapid charging technology, Peugeot says an 80% charge will take just 30 minutes, while a full charge using conventional 7.4kW and 11kW fast chargers will take between eight hours and five hours.

With the MyPeugeot app, owners will be able to pre-set the charging times, heating and air conditioning on the e-2008 SUV, as well as check its current charge level remotely.

The model will feature two forms of energy recovery. Selecting Drive "D" recovery from the drive selector will feel similar to driving a standard diesel or petrol model, while Brake "B" provides more regenerative braking when lifting off the accelerator.

Peugeot says a series of unique styling cues help set the all-new e-2008 SUV apart from its petrol and diesel counterparts:

  • A sparkling dichroic Lion emblem, with reflections alternating between green and blue depending on the angle of view;
  • An "e" monogram on the front side panel and tailgate;
  • A body coloured chequered front grille;
  • Exclusive seat upholstery in Alcantara (non-leather 'suede effect' material) on the e-2008 SUV GT.

The 50kWh battery is positioned under the floor of the car and Peugeot maintains there's no compromise to boot or interior space whichever powertrain is selected.

The e-2008 SUV is the second 100% electric vehicle from Peugeot, following from on from the new e-208 announced earlier this year. Peugeot has pledged that by 2023, its entire model line-up will feature an electrified version.

PSA rival Renault is launching a new version of its Zoe EV which comes with a 52 kWh battery and an additional 100kW R135 electric motor option which it claims boosts range to 242 miles under WLTP conditions.
