Peugeot have announced details of its ‘E-Lion’ electrification project, which is set to be spearheaded by the new all-electric e-3008. It will be the first vehicle to utilize parent company Stellantis’ all-new STLA-Medium architecture, and will be available with several powertrain configurations, including a dual-motor model offering all-wheel-drive. The French marque is promising ranges of up to 440 miles for the e-3008, while three electric powertrains are planned, including twin motors. The SUV is one of five new electric models Peugeot plans to launch within the next two years.
The STLA platform is also set to be utilised by an upcoming all-electric version of the Vauxhall Manta, which is expected to be revived as a sleek coupe-SUV. The Peugeot e-3008 on the other hand, will maintain its family SUV proportions.
Stellantis also announced that every model in Peugeot’s product range is to be electrified this year, followed by a 100% electrified range in 2025, although this will still include hybrids. In the ‘E-Lion’ announcement, Peugeot reaffirmed its aim to be all-electric in Europe by 2030.
