Peugeot enthusiasts in Malaysia have something to look forward to as the highly anticipated Peugeot E-2008 will be hitting the market next year. This exciting news was confirmed by Daniel Gonzalez, the Chief Operating Officer (Asean and General Distributors) of Stellantis, in an exclusive interview with CarSifu, the automotive division of The Star.
Rumors about the arrival of the electric vehicle (EV) have been circulating since 2021. In fact, it was only a few months ago that the E-2008 was previewed by Peugeot’s Malaysian distributor, Bermaz Auto Alliance, during the Malaysia Autoshow 2023. However, the French automaker has decided to unveil the facelift model in the same week, which means that Malaysian customers will have to wait until 2024 to get their hands on the new and improved version.
The Peugeot E-2008 facelift boasts several exciting updates. One notable change is the incorporation of Peugeot’s new logo, introduced in 2021, giving the EV a fresh and modern look. Additionally, the facelift model features a larger 54kWh battery, offering an improved range of 406km according to the WLTP rating. This is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, which had a range of 345km.
To ensure a seamless charging experience, the E-2008 facelift comes with a 7.4kW onboard single-phase AC charger as standard. This enables the EV to be charged from 20% to 80% in approximately 4 hours and 40 minutes. For faster charging, customers can opt for the optional 11kW onboard three-phase AC charger, which further reduces charging time. Additionally, the E-2008 supports DC fast charging of up to 100kW, allowing for a 20% to 80% charge in just 30 minutes.
Peugeot’s commitment to sustainability and innovation is evident with the arrival of the E-2008 facelift model in the Malaysian market. With its enhanced range, stylish design, and efficient charging capabilities, this EV is set to make a splash among eco-conscious and tech-savvy consumers.
