New Peugeot 3008 2023 – If the current generation of 3008 has just been restyled to honor his second part of his career, Peugeot is already in the lead in 2023. It will be about handing over to a brand new opus amplifying theelectrification of its range.
Hen with golden eggs
Not easy to replace such a “monument”. Internally, the Lion teams must probably put pressure on themselves to renew the best-seller in its catalog. Because the Peugeot 3008 is good THE model that brought the Sochaux manufacturer out of the doldrums, on the verge of bankruptcy in the early 2010s. A bit like the 205, in the mid-1980s. Since its launch in 2016, more than 800,000 copies have passed through the world, with a very high product mix, particularly profitable for the French firm.
To renew itself within two years, let’s bet that the SUV will capitalize on the athletic silhouette of the current model, he who had completely turned his back on the tinted architecture of the very first 3008, appeared in 2009. If we lack information about his final style, we nevertheless imagined the attitude he could display, through our exclusive illustration.
Even more dynamic
We will probably find in the lines of the future 3008 a hint of the new 308, revealed at the beginning of the year. Its grille will notch more, while his gaze will be more piercing, accompanied by even more spectacular side light claws. Its black lacquered pavilion should also be renewed, to boost its line, when the chrome will become more discreet, surfing on the current trend.
The new Peugeot 3008 should lengthen a few centimeters to reach or even exceed 4.50 m, resting on a major overhaul of the EMP2 base. Coming soon eVMP, this new platform will be multi-energy.
And the diesel offer is set to disappear definitively, with the arrival of this new Peugeot 3008, the petrol units will convert to the micro-hybridization, potentially provided by a 48 V battery.
But the big project of the new Peugeot 3008 will consist of its total electrification, of which we already know some of the characteristics. In 2020, the PSA group, which became Stellantis, spoke of battery capacities ranging from 60 to 100 kWh, with the promise ofranges between 400 and 650 km, in order to oppose the Volkswagen ID.4, among the players who will multiply in this “zero emission” niche.
What about rechargeable hybridization?
Finally, there is room for doubt about the sustainability of the PHEV groups. With the deployment of 100% electric versions, one can wonder if the future Peugeot 3008 will reintroduce plug-in hybridization, often criticized by environmentalists for its counter-productivity in terms of efficiency.
On board, the 3008 cuvée 2023 will put the package in terms of connectivity and driving aids. He will finally inherit the 3D digital panel, housed behind the wheel, inaugurated by the 208 and 2008, and could add a head-up display in augmented reality. The Franche-Comté SUV could also inherit certain safety equipment which remains, for the moment, the prerogative of DS models. One can very well imagine the integration of a vision nocturne, or a controlled suspension anticipating road terrain thanks to a camera. In any case, it is certain that the 3008 will push back its capabilities a little further. autonomous driving.
An electric sports model?
Launched in the fall of 2023, the new Peugeot 3008, as well as its 100% electric variants, called e-3008, could subsequently receive the reinforcement ofa sporty version, labeled PSE. It would, once again, be a model turning its back on fossil fuels.
Finally, this new 3008 will be closely followed by the replacing the 5008. Better optimized, its architecture will finally allow it electrification worthy of the name, when the current one cannot convert to the rechargeable hybridization of its little brother, because of the bulkiness of its third row of chairs hidden under the trunk.
