Peugeot enthusiasts in Malaysia have reason to celebrate as the eagerly awaited Peugeot E-2008 is set to arrive in the market next year. This exciting news was revealed by Daniel Gonzalez, the Chief Operating Officer (ASEAN and General Distributors) of Stellantis, during an interview with The Star’s automotive division, CarSifu.
While the arrival of the electric vehicle (EV) has been anticipated since 2021, it was only a few months ago that the pre-facelift Peugeot E-2008 made its debut at the Malaysia Autoshow 2023. However, Peugeot has decided to introduce the new facelift model, resulting in the EV’s delayed release in Malaysia until 2024.
The facelifted Peugeot E-2008 boasts several notable enhancements, starting with a fresh exterior design that includes the brand’s newly introduced logo from 2021. Additionally, the EV now features a larger 54kWh battery, ensuring an extended range compared to its predecessor. The improved WLTP-rated range has been increased to 406km, up from 345km.
Charging the E-2008 FL is made convenient with a standard 7.4kW onboard single-phase AC charger. This charger takes approximately 4 hours and 40 minutes to charge the electric SUV from 20% to 80% capacity. For even faster charging, buyers have the option to upgrade to the optional 11kW onboard three-phase AC charger. Furthermore, the EV supports DC fast charging at speeds of up to 100kW, reducing the charging time from 20% to 80% to a mere 30 minutes.
As the Peugeot E-2008 prepares to make its way to the Malaysian market, EV enthusiasts can look forward to its enhanced design and extended range, making it a compelling choice in the ever-expanding electric vehicle landscape.
