Stellantis CFO Natalie Knight has revealed that the next generation Peugeot 5008 will be launched in August next year and will include a fully electric version.
We’ve known about the next-generation 5008 since the beginning of this year when Peugeot confirmed an electric version was in the works. Fast forward to August, and our spy photographers captured testing the new 5008 in ICE guise before seeing an electric prototype in September. Like the smaller 3008, it will be powered by the Stellantis STLA Medium platform that supports electric vehicles with a range of up to 435 miles (700 km).
Knight confirmed that the 5008 will be launched next year while speaking to analysts about the company’s third-quarter results. It described it as one of the Stellantis group’s major European EV launches set for 2024. The e-408, Fiat 600e and Fiat Topolino Quadricycle are also scheduled for launch next year.

While the next generation of 5008 is just around the corner, the previous model is still very popular. In fact, around 34,560 examples have been sold through September of this year, which is a significant increase from the 26,425 examples sold during the same period last year. Automotive News reports that it was the fifth best-selling vehicle in the midsize/large SUV segment.
The new Peugeot 5008 is expected to follow a similar design philosophy to the latest 3008, although it will be a more conventionally shaped SUV than an SUV coupe. We expect the front fascia of the 5008 to adopt HED headlights and DRLs similar to the 3008 and may have the same complex grille arrangement.
Powertrain details have not been confirmed but we do know that the new 5008 will be offered in hybrid and electric forms. One such hybrid is likely to be the 48V 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engine that Peugeot launched earlier this year in the 3008 and 5008 models. This new engine is turbocharged and complemented by an electric motor with 28 hp and 41 lb-ft (55). Nm) of torque, resulting in 134 hp and 170 lb-ft (230 Nm). Electric versions could be similar to the E-3008 which is offered with 73 kWh and 98 kWh battery packs with power figures ranging from 207 to 316 hp.
