This January 30, Peugeot organized the second edition of its “E-Lion Day”. A back-to-school press conference which looks back on the brand’s news from last year and the challenges that await it in 2024, moderated by Peugeot director Linda Jackson. Among the announcements, one particularly caught attention: the arrival of a new warranty offer covering the new electric 3008 for up to eight years or 160,000 km.
This additional “Peugeot Allure Care” warranty offer is much higher than the 2 years obligatory in the European Union, and it is a first for the brand. Other Asian manufacturers already offer extensive coverage (8 to 10 years at Toyota, up to 10 years at Nissan), but few European manufacturers offer it. Dacia has just announced a renewable warranty extension for its models up to 7 years.
Maintenance at Peugeot required to benefit from the extended warranty
At Peugeot, the operation is almost the same with one condition to be met: the customer must carry out maintenance according to the recommendations, that is to say every 2 years or 25,000 km in the Peugeot network. Each time you visit the dealership, the warranty is automatically extended by 2 years, until the car is 8 years old or reaches 160,000 km, whichever comes first. The warranty covers all mechanical elements of the E-3008, i.e. electric motor, charger, powertrain and major electrical and mechanical components.
Peugeot only communicates on electric, saying that the E-3008 is the first to benefit from this additional coverage. Other electric models should follow, such as the E-208, E-308 or even the electric Rifter. On the other hand, models equipped with thermal engines seem to be forgotten… Would Peugeot have less confidence in its PureTech engines, deemed unreliable due to timing belt problems in the 2010s? Especially since these gasoline units now have an advanced 48V micro-hybridization, including an automatic gearbox integrating a small electric motor… This engine should in all likelihood remain guaranteed for 2 years.
According to Linda Jackson and her team, the aim of this warranty extension is above all to “reassure the customer about electric cars, give them peace of mind and facilitate the change to an electric car”. Phil York, Marketing and Communications Director, adds that this “exceptional coverage demonstrates the confidence we have in the quality and reliability of our products”.
