Should you buy one?

The e-2008 is a likebale small family SUV that just happens to have an electric motor and not a petrol or diesel engine. There are few compromises in terms of practicality and performance when compared with the regular models, and if you look at the costs over a longer-term then it doesn’t appear as expensive as you might think.

However, as you’ll read on our Best Electric SUVs page, it’s beaten overall by the Kia e-Niro overall and the MG ZS EV in terms of value.

The e-2008 works as a first electric car for buyers looking to make the jump. It doesn’t feel intimidating, and it doesn’t suffer the fate of some electric cars that look and feel a bit too futuristic for the sake of being futuristic. Save for some ‘e’ badges dotted about the place, the Peugeot is like any other 2008 that happens to be electric. And it’s all the better for it.

What we like

On a purely subjective level, the e-2008 is more smartly styled than its rivals, and the interior much more interesting to be in. It may not have the win on standard equipment next to those cars, but the Peugeot’s interior feels much more modern and of higher-quality.

The Peugeot also offers a more composed ride compared with the Hyundai, and a good amount more space than it too. It loses ground to the Kia in this area though, a car that’s more spacious and equally comfortable in terms of ride quality.

What we don’t like

We have an issue with the way the range is indicated on the dashboard, which is calculated from the best possible mileage instead of being calculated on recent driving. That results in an inconsistent reading which is difficult to rely on until you get used to driving one.
