THE Peugeot present the new 2008 last spring. Then, in mid-September, the unveiling of the new 3008which he first acquired and purely electric version. What remains, now, for its range of SUVs? The brand new 5008.
The truth is that we won’t have to wait long. Our partners have already spotted us at two different times her originals third generation of (up to) 7-seater leisure vehicle of the French brand. Only this time, in this particular photo package, the new 5008 began its winter testing.
The truth is that apart from intense camouflagethe Peugeot prototype also had as an ally the weather conditionswhich did not ensure the best visibility, resulting in the photos we present to you not show all the details that they could.
But once again, it is evident that the large SUV retains the “traditional” square design and does not “succumb” to the tendency of SUV Coupe. This, of course, helps 3rd row passenger headroom seats.
Otherwise, we expect a design philosophy that will “echo” that of 3008but clearly in larger “version”. In addition, as in the C-SUV, the 5008 will get a purely electric version for the first time, front-wheel drive as well as four-wheel drive. Yes, this particular prototype is purely electricwhich means that it gets into the “difficult” with the particularly low temperatures.
There are three elements that, despite the intense camouflage, “betray” his identity. THE closed mask of, since it has no particular cooling requirements, the absence of exhaust tipsbut also the design of the wheels which is the same as that of the electric version of the 3008. The goal is as much as possible reduction of aerodynamic dragin favor of autonomy.
No photos of the interior yet, but we’re certainly expecting it Panoramic i-Cockpit with high resolution 21 inch curved screen to dominate. It includes him digital instrument panel and infotainment system and both have 10 inch screens.
Finally, for the enginesthe platform STLA Medium of Stellantis makes it possible mild hybrids, plug-in hybrids and purely electric powertrains. It remains to be seen if there will be diesel engines publications.
More information on the new 5008 will be given in early 2024as Peugeot had announced in the context of the presentation of the new 3008. As for its unveiling, it will probably take let’s wait for the middle of the new yearmaybe even the beginning of the 2nd semester.
