Introduction

What Car? says...

Designing an electric car presents designers with a quandary. Do they go traditional or take a more avant-garde approach? In the case of the Peugeot e-2008, you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference between it and any another 2008 that whizzed by; the electric version looks just the same from the outside as the regular petrol and diesel versions.

The flipside is to go all out and deliver an electric vehicle (EV) that looks as cutting edge as a 3D-printed space station: bold, different and clearly contemporary to anyone that claps eyes on it. The BMW i3 and Volkswagen ID.3 exemplify this alternative approach.

Neither is right or wrong, of course. To some people, new technology needs to look the part, while others are content to have the cutting-edge internals wrapped in traditional and familiar attire. Having said that, while the Peugeot e-2008’s styling isn’t distinct from the 2008’s, it still looks pretty swish.

But that’s enough about styling because you are more than capable of working out whether or not something looks good. Where we can help is by telling you what the Peugeot e-2008 is like to drive and live with day-to-day.

Is it as good as the i3 and ID.3, or the multitude of other EVs out there for similar money, including the Hyundai Kona Electric, the Kia e-Niro and the Kia Soul EV. Or, for that matter, EVs that cost less, like the great value MG ZS EV.

Read on for all you need to know about how quick the Peugeot e-2008 is, how far it can travel on a single charge, and how roomy it is.
