How much is it going to cost to run?

The e-2008 costs more to buy outright than a petrol 2008. But Peugeot claims that when you factor in the long-term costs of it being cheaper to recharge than refuel, along with various other benefits, an e-2008 should cost around the same to run as a petrol 2008 over a longer period of time.

Naturally, you’ll need a home charger to make the most of your EV – and that also means your home will require off-street parking in order to facilitate overnight charging. Peugeot’s partnered with Pod Point to provide discounted home charge points, and the government’s Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme reduces the cost further.

Range and charging

With a 251-mile range, the e-2008 won’t travel as far between charges as a 64kWh Kia Niro EV or Hyundai Kona Electric, but it should be enough to suit most drivers’ needs day to day, as long as they’re not high-mileage users. Expect a real-world range of around 200 miles on a mix of roads, with more if you’re exclusively in town and less if you’re sticking to the motorway.

Although it shares a platform with the Vauxhall Mokka and Jeep Avenger, the E-2008 is longer than both.

Charging time varies depending on the cable and charger you’re using. From a domestic socket, charging should take around 16 hours, while charging via a 7.4kW or 11kW fast charger will take around eight and five hours respectively. Finally, using a 100kW rapid charger, you can top-up the e-2008 to 80% in around 30 minutes.

Also, you’ll be able to set when you want to start charging the car if you’ve left it plugged in (for example when rates are cheaper overnight), and set the car’s temperature ahead of a journey so you can get in the car toasty and warm on a cold morning. This can only be done if the car is plugged in.

Servicing and maintenance

The e-2008 gets the usual three-year/unlimited mileage Peugeot car warranty – though the EV battery components are covered for eight years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes sooner). This isn’t especially generous – it doesn’t show the same confidence as Kia, Suzuki or MG’s seven-year schemes for the entire car, for example.

Peugeot offers servicing schemes that allow customers to guarantee the cost of servicing, which could come in useful, but the e-2008 shouldn’t be costly to maintain. The standard service interval is two years or 16,000 miles, and that should keep costs down.


  • Improving reputation for reliability
  • But EV tech is fairly new to Peugeot
  • Feels a well-built product

Owners are reporting few issues with 50kWh models, so we’d hope it’d be the same story for the updated car. With less working parts than a regular petrol or diesel engine, there’s less to go wrong, and it’s cheaper to keep serviced.

Peugeot provides a certificate guaranteeing the car’s battery capacity to help with resale values further down the line.
