Still no indication on the Peugeot e-2008 launch date though.
Bermaz Auto Alliance, the custodian of the Peugeot brand in Malaysia recently showcased the Peugeot e-2008 at the recently concluded Malaysia Autoshow 2023 which took place at the MAEPS Exhibition Centre last weekend.
Essentially an all-electric version of the 2008, the e-2008 actually looks quite similar with its petrol-engined twin except for a few subtle yet significant differences such as the body-coloured bits on the front grille versus the regular 2008‘s chrome, and the “e” lettering on the side, the boot, and a few spots inside the EV.
Meanwhile, the interior features the signature Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit with hologram technology and a funky head-up display. Other highlights include the gear lever which is exclusive to the e-2008, as well as 18-inch alloy wheels.
Besides these few differences, everything we see on the e-2008 at least on the surface level, is identical to the regular 2008.
Powering the Peugeot e-2008 is a 50kW battery and 100kW powertrain configuration with an output of 136 horsepower motor that provides an estimated range of up to 320km from a full charge.
The charging of e-2008 is made easy as the vehicle can support 100kW rapid charging from any dedicated DC Charging station, achieving 80% charge in 30 minutes.
Initially slated to make its Malaysian debut in the last quarter of 2022, Bermaz is still teasing the Malaysian market with the e-2008 as there has not been any update on when it will be launched, when it is going to be open for booking, or what the price is going to be.
That being said, the company also showcased an array of models for test drive, including the new locally assembled Mazda CX-30, Mazda CX-3, the locally assembled Kia Sorento and Kia Carnival in 7-seater seating configuration variant, the Peugeot 2008, and the Peugeot 3008.
