The French crossover Peugeot 2008, now in its second generation, continues to score successes in sales. It is one of the three most marketed models in Europe since the beginning of 2021 and will probably arrive at around 200,000 units this year.
The merit is given by the presence of an electric engine in the range, by the very heterogeneous petrol and diesel units, and by the excellent space qualities for the category. Below are the sales figures for Peugeot 2008 starting from 2013, the year of the model’s birth. The second generation arrived in the second half of 2019.
At the beginning of 2023, the restyling of the Peugeot 2008 SUV will be presented, which will be on the market from the middle of the same year. Aesthetically the car will not be revolutionized. It will see the introduction of a front more similar to the newborn Peugeot 308 with the introduction of the new logo. At the rear, there should be thinner headlights with a new LED signature. Internal technology will increase with greater connectivity qualities and a more complete ADAS offering. The images of the possible restyling were taken from the Behance page of the Brazilian designer Kleber Silva.
2023 Peugeot 2008 Engine
The facelift of the Peugeot 2008 will bring even more advanced engines. Diesel fuel could disappear (news yet to be confirmed). Instead, we will see the debut of 48 V micro-hybrid technology, combined with an e-DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission, for the 100, 130, and 155 hp PureTech 1.2 engines. The mild-hybrid versions will promise savings in terms of consumption and emissions of about 10-12% on average.
We will have several novelties for the electric range of the Peugeot 2008. The 136 bhp version will remain for which, thanks to advances in chemistry, it should increase the range up to about 400 km. To expand the offer of battery versions, two other variants should arrive (probably with dual engines and to understand if with all-wheel drive) from 170 and over 200 hp for a possible version called PSE. Autonomy always between 320 and 350 km.
The list prices of the new Peugeot 2008 will remain in line with the current ones, there will be an indicative increase of about € 1,000-1,200 for the micro-hybrid versions.
