The new Peugeot e-2008 with electric motor
The new Peugeot 2008 crossover or city car is available with engines from various power sources. The latest generation of CMP (Common Modular Platform) offers this opportunity.
The electric motor installed in the e-2008 develops a circular of 100 kilowatts or 136 horsepower, but its maximum torque, which is reached from the first turn, is 260 Nm. The electric motor is powered by a battery of 50 kWh and with a load is enough to cover 310 kilometers (according to the WLTP test cycle).
The options of the combustion engine consist of a 1.2 liter three-cylinder petrol engine with 100, 130 or 155 hp, while the diesel engine comes with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 100 or 130 hp .
New Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit in front of the cabin
Peugeot 2008 is the new generation of the Peugeot 3D i-Cockpit. The innovative i-Cockpit provides driver-side view information combined with a large high-resolution touch screen and compact corner.
As a novelty and even a rarity in this segment, there are equipment and driving aids that are borrowed from upper segment models. These include:
– Drive Assist plus Assisted Access, which paves the way for semi-autonomous driving. It combines a band retention wizard that warns against accidental track start and the Adaptive Cruise Control with the Stop & Go function for eight-speed automatic transmission.
– Parking assistance system that automatically controls the direction when entering and exiting the parking lot, leaving only a space of 60 cm between the parking lots.
– The latest generation of automatic emergency braking, which also recognizes pedestrians and cyclists day and night, operates at speeds of 5 km / h at 140 km / h.
– Extended road signal recognition feature which recognizes not only the speed limit signs, but also the one-way and stop traffic signs (STOP).
The functionality of the smartphone will also be included in the new Peugeot 2008. It will be possible to integrate the information on the central screen, including through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The new design of the Peugeot 2008 is designed to meet the general standards and proportions of urban off-road vehicles with a lower and deeper windshield that makes the hood more horizontal and forms a rigid body. The face of the new model is composed of LED fluorescent lamps, which have become Peugeot's latest car signature, making it difficult to mix with other manufacturers.
The Peugeot 2008 has a length of 4.30 m and a wheelbase of 2.60 m, which means that both the space for passengers and the trunk (434 liters) are wide enough. It's a bit smaller for an electric car.
