    What is it?
    Another week, another feature that opens with the line ‘another week, another compact crossover’. A further opportunity will come in January. But this week it’s the Peugeot e-2008, the taller small Peugeot that is not quite as small as the last one. At 4.3m long, it’s 15cm longer than the 2008 it replaces, so is now longer than a Volkswagen Golf.

    It sits on Peugeot’s CMP (Common Modular Platform) small car architecture which, you may know, means it comes with a choice of internal combustion power or as a pure battery-electric vehicle, as tested here. Plug-in hybridisation is saved for bigger Peugeots and Citroëns and DSs now, Vauxhalls later and who knows what beyond that, once parent company PSA Group merges with Fiat Chrysler as is planned next year.

    Anyway, the idea is that, instead of Peugeot making a stand-alone electric vehicle, you choose a car from the regular Peugeot range and then choose your powertrain – ‘thermal’ or, increasingly, electric – to suit you, which strikes me as a pragmatic long-term approach. We’ve only tested the combusted and electric versions separately because they’re still widely searched for separately online – I guess electrification’s work will be done when searches are powertrain agnostic and the EV will have truly entered the everyday motoring lexicon.

    Pricey. I’d consider it if it arrives on the scheme.

    Low powered and heavy.

    My current car, the SEAT Alhambra weighs 1835kg and has 148HP,

    the e-2008 weighs 1548kg and has 134HP

    It’ll be fast enough to spin up those eco tyres without any problem

     

    I have a motorbike that weighs 165kg  and has 75HP, hmmm, all cars are slow 🙂

    Any car that has less than 150 BHP and weighs more than 1.5T is going to be pathetically slow.

    No Julie, but I like my cars to have decent acceleration.

    1548kgs and only 134bhp, not gonna blow many skirts up with those kind of figures, compare it to an i3 and it’s a dinosaur in the performance stakes, having an electric motor is supposed to give you instant power and torque at any speed but not here I’m sorry to say, missed the target by a big margin, maybe they’ll offer a version with some larger testis down the line.
