New PEUGEOT E-3008

      It’s been on the scheme for a few weeks now so I was wondering whether anyone has placed an order?

      I know that it hasn’t even arrived at UK showrooms yet, and there aren’t any road tests to read or view yet, but  will that make you wait or will you take the “plunge”?

      I’ve had a peugeot 3008 GT Premium Hybrid for the last 2 years 11 months and it has been a superb car. It wraps the driver up in a very cosseting manner and has been a pleasure to use, so I know its successor will suit me.

      I’ve just come back from a two week family holiday where I had a lot of time to think and research and chat to my sons, and I decided that the new E-3008 GT would be an ideal way to transition to a full EV. I have now ordered the vehicle and will patiently sit back and wait until they get around to building mine in approx 6 months time.

      I’ve extended my current lease so that I’m mobile until “hand over day”.

      I thought I would start this thread as I feel the car will become the subject of discussion soon.

            The rear of the centre console appears to stick out approx 4inches on the videos I’ve watched.

            I think Peugeot see it as more of a four seater with occasional fifth passenger use..

              Yes pops I’ve ordered one. Like yourself I had a 3008 and there pretty much the same size so should be an easy transition. Mind the old 3008 had the worst seats I’ve ever had so I may need to get the old towel back out lol

                Des, my local dealer’s Motability specialist didn’t know that the E-3008 was on the scheme. My enquiry was the first he’d had.

                I told him to check his list again and he still told me it wasn’t on there. I told him to check again and look at the middle of his list because the AP is £2499. He found it immediately and said he was looking at the £5000 plus AP’s. I think that we guys on this forum often know more than the supposed “experts”. At least it proved that when he said there was no Motability customer interest he was telling the truth.

                My current 3008 has Alcantara seats and they are so comfortable. I’m surprised that you found yours uncomfortable, but I guess we’re all different shapes and sizes with different problems and pain centres.

                    Same story as myself pops, mind I ordered the day on or day after it was added to mobility. The only gripe I have is lack of rear wiper.

                    And deep down there is a slight regret at cancelling the Enyaq as I believe it to be a cracking car, it’s just that stupid wee drivers cluster that I hated tbh.

                      des I think the rear spoiler set up and directed air flow is designed to keep the rear windscreen clear, hense no rear wiper needed. That’s my thoughts anyway.

                        I am still worried about the lack of electric seat adjustment. however I sat in a 3008 GT in the showroom yesterday and found that manual adjustment was actually possible for me. I still have concerns about the lack of the front seat under thigh extension support, but I’ve told the Motability guy I need to check this out when they have an E-3008 in the showroom.

                        If I struggle to be absolutely comfortable in the driver’s seat I will reluctantly add the “Nappa black mistral leather pack” which costs a huge £1600 pounds!!!! It includes ten way electric seat adjustment and  massage with perforated cooling to seats for the brief hotter spells, and rear seat heating.

                        I’ve already added the “Sensation” pack which includes my ‘must have’ Focal hi fi system and a very usable and attractive ambient lit opening sunroof.

                        I’m an old fella now, and if I’m to continue to go ‘out and about’ I need to do it in comfort and with a smile on my face.

                        The total package may not be cheap, but if it keeps me happy and mobile then it makes sense to me.

                          @POPS Did you spec the heatpump?

                            Yes Josh it’s been debated on here quite a bit as I believe the Enyaq coupe or some other scheme cars are missing it, but I don’t believe anyone has had a car without one yet to see if the design works well. Oh and I do like that spoiler, it’s a bit different I suppose.

                            Pops my Kona is like that with not much under thigh support and noticed it in the BZ4X, seems to be a thing with most cars now. I also think seats are getting narrower because centre consoles are getting wider and that was the problem I had with the old 3008 and at 5ft 11in and 15st I ain’t that big.

                            The one thing I’m really going to miss about the Kona is the cooled seats. It doesn’t have to be warm outside for a car to heat up, middle of winter, black interior and the sun can get a cars interior pretty warm. I have definitely used the cooled setting way more than the heating on the seats.

                              @POPS Did you spec the heatpump? No I didn’t even though the heat pump is cheaper on this car than other models. I drive a very low mileage so it wouldn’t make financial sense to me.

                              My one major concern is the drivers seat comfort. I have spinal nerve damage and the right seating position and support is essential to me. I might have to spend another £1600 just for peace of mind, even though the showroom manual adjusted 3008 was manageable.

                                The heat pump adds under 25 miles at 0c, so totally not worth it as a low mileage driver, you would never recover the cost.

                                At nearly £50k car not having electric seats especially on top trim models is just penny pinching, however, Peugeot aren’t alone here. Same goes for the rear wiper. Requiring expensive option packs, half of it you don’t need.  Mind you Nappa is nice.

                                At £1ok or more over it equivulent petrol model, you certainly pay to supposedly go green as a retail customer.

                                  Hope the spec is better than the ICE models I’ve got a 3008 GT at the moment and aside from lane keep assist that stays OFF as I’ve yet to find one that doesn’t try to kill you head on into oncoming traffic on unmarked C roads.

                                  No heated seats the one thing I’d never ever do without it’s just a cheap thing to cheap out on.

                                  As for size it’s passable it blows the awful awful awful DS3 away I was forced to drive around in for a month boots nice size back seat is wide enough for 3 teens or 2 teens plus dog front has enough room for adult plus dog in footwell if need be.

                                  Overall I’d be concerned about practicality vs the Enyaq being the Sportline plus is £400 cheaper

                                    Just a question that I can’t find a definitive answer to.

                                    The E-3008 has a leather option with ventilated auto seats. Does this mean that they will cool as well as heat? I assume the answer is yes but it would be nice to know for sure.

                                      if ventilated then yes that usually means coolng… peugot needless to say were a five minute walk from me but are gone now.  was a peugot/kia dealership but now kia/suzuki i think…

                                      kia seems to be my next logical choice..citreon are only a 5 min drive.

                                        Ventilated seats are normally perforated to allow cooled air to by through, either from the vehicles AC or inbuilt cooling fans.

                                          Parker’s Guide state “heating and cooling mistral black nappa leather seats” which corroborates what you guys have said.

                                          I currently drive a 3008 GT Premium Hybrid and it has full electric seat adjustment with memory and massage functions, with a very supportive seat nose adjuster offering excellent extended thigh support. I’ve told my dealer that I want to test drive the E-3008 as soon as he has one available, in order to make sure that I continue to have adequate thigh support (which is absolutely essential for me). I also need the right seat base angle and have to check that I can actually use the three manual seat adjustment controls reasonably ‘pain free’ in an everyday driving situation. If not I will grudgingly add the ‘mistral auto 13’ seat pack as an expensive option.

                                          It may seem an extravagant extra, but what use is leasing a car that you can’t sit in comfortably and drive safely. As kezo said earlier, “Top trim £50k cars without electric seat adjustment as standard is just penny pinching by the manufacturers”!

                                          Identifying the car you want is only the start of making sure it actually does everything you need for the next few years.

                                            Might be worth an application for a grant if your income isn’t high. They were pretty good listening to me about my needs even agreeing to double the award when challenged over it

                                              Rich thanks for your suggestion. I know that there are other cars that would cater for my basic needs reasonably well in just getting from A to B, so I do have other options. However, because I don’t do a lot of miles these days I’ve been considering two different scenarios as I come to the end of this lease.

                                              1) I can give my current car back and then rely on my excellent family to take me shopping and for appointments etc.

                                              2) I can get another vehicle that will excite me enough to increase my vehicle usage to make it worthwhile …. to actually really enjoy going out …. if only for regular drives out to local beauty spots (I’m lucky to live in a very scenic area).

                                              I’ve decided on option 2.

                                              One of my big pleasures is to listen to my eclectic collection of music (stored on USB) on a really good audio system. So with that in mind I’ve added the “Sensation pack” which is a £1200 option and upgrades the audio from standard to the Focal 690 watt hi fi with ten speakers (built in France not China). I already have this system in my current car so I know how good it is. It also adds an opening sunroof for those warmer days when I will go out just to chill and enjoy both the views and the sounds.

                                              You might say “If you’re that bothered about seating issues you could get rid of the sensation pack and have the £1600 auto seating pack instead” (that’s probably what Motability would say, lol) and that makes cold hard common sense, but then I might as well stay home on those warmer days with my windows open, looking at our superb view and listen to my ‘banging’ 2000 watt Yamaha sound set up in my comfortable office.

                                              I am trying  to extend my mobility and independence for at least another three years, and if it means that I have to pay for another expensive option then I will (although I would rather it was already included).
